* {{Gumby}} Gumby can do this in ''Webcomic/{{Asperchu}}''

* Most episodes of ''{{Gumby}}'' involve this. * Adventures of the Week on ''MuppetBabies'' frequently took the kids into books, including ''AroundTheWorldInEightyDays'', ''PeterPan'', "Literature/ThePiedPiperOfHamelin", and numerous {{Fairy Tale}}s. Interestingly, the episode specifically about books and libraries ''didn't'' use this but rather put the kids in the setting of ''Film/{{Labyrinth}}'' searching for Piggy's lost ''Literature/AliceInWonderland'' book. * The [[TropeNamer trope-naming]] GreatBigBookOfEverything on ''{{Stanley}}''.

* The ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' episode, "[[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E6PowerPonies Power Ponies]]" has Spike and the Main Six learn the hard way that this kind of book is apparently a freely available specialized comic book retail item when they are sucked into it and have to play out its roleplaying game scenario in order to leave.

[[AC:{{Music}}]] * In the music video for Music/{{A-ha}}'s ''Take On Me'', the (handsome) lead singer who is in a comic book, invites a (very cute) woman who is reading it to join him. She does, and becomes a black-and-white drawn character. When he stands behind a mirror, on one side he (and her) are three dimensional, in color, but on the other side, they're line-drawn black and white. When some {{mook}}s start chasing them, he runs and pulls her along, then pushes her back out to the real world. Then later, she returns the favor and invites him out of the comic and into her world. The official video is [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=djV11Xbc914 here]].

[[AC:Film]] * The ''Film/{{Goosebumps}}'' film adaptation reveals that ''all'' of R.L. Stine's original manuscripts are Portal Books that, when opened, release the monsters into the real world. He's dedicated his life to keeping the books locked and hidden in a house full of booby traps to presumably slow them down should they escape (which they do when the film's protagonist comes knocking).
