* 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.

This trope is named based on the idea that this is the video game equivalent of pop-up books, as well as a pun on the [=VH1=] TV show ''PopUpVideo''.

* 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...)

Added DiffLines:

* ''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.]]

* Most of the ''Zoombinis'' backgrounds were static, except for the camps where you would have to ensure you had a full party of sixteen Zoombinis. There, you could click on everything and things would happen.

* A lot of {{Broderbund}} games fit this. That is, aside from their ''CarmenSandiego'' series, of course.
** The ''LivingBooks'' series, which was produced by Broderbund, except they were based off of children's books, like ''Literature/{{Arthur}}'', ''Literature/LittleCritter'' or ''Literature/TheBerenstainBears''.

This is a trope in {{Video Game}}s for young children, especially in [[TheNineties the 1990s]]. Pop Up Video Games will probably also be {{Edutainment Game}}s, though they don't necessarily have to be.

* ''VideoGame/CosmicOsmo'' and ''VideoGame/TheManhole'' are good examples of this trope. The only goal is to explore as much of each game's quirky universe as you can find.
