* In the mid-90s to early 2000s, Infogrames and Big Tune New Media made and released a series of such games featuring Mercer Mayer's Literature/LittleCritter, and a couple with Mayer's lesser-known franchise Little Monster. The first titles were adapted straight from the books "Just Me and My Dad" and "Just Me and My Mom," along with "The Smelly Mystery" (featuring Little Monster [[PrivateDetective Private Eye]]), an original Little Critter story "Just Me and My Grandpa") and two non-storybook click-and-point games: "Little Critter and the Great Race" and "Little Monster Private Eye and the Mummy Mystery."

* The "Animated Storybooks" series from Disney Interactive were this--they took story versions of various Disney properties and combined them with these various animations, plus a few simple mini-games. A few had larger "secondary" games, such as a ''Disney/LittleMermaid'' game that also included a coloring book/storybook maker.

* They Might Be Giants' children's album ''No!'' was also a CD-ROM with several mini-games based around the songs, most of which featured this. Some are quite strange; "Violin" features the line "one-quarter of George Washington's head" and that's exactly what you get (and more if you click, obviously...)

* ''VideoGame/{{StayTooned}}'' also has this, but isn't very well done in some spots. [[spoiler: it's mainly there because you're looking for keys and the remote.]]
