Sounds like ThisIsReality, but it's very different. Definitely [[IThoughtItMeant not to be confused with]] an episode of ''Series/TheRealWorld''.

* In the ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' episode "The French Mistake", Sam and Dean Winchester get blasted into the real world where everyone sees them as Creator/JaredPadalecki and Creator/JensenAckles, stars of the television series ''Supernatural''. It gets very meta. Among the things that the Winchesters discover is that Bobby is named for a show producer, Jared got married to the actress who played Ruby, ''Supernatural'' is filmed in [[StargateCity Vancouver]], and Sam and Dean CANNOT ACT. [[spoiler:Creator/MishaCollins (Castiel) and series creator Eric Kripke]] get KilledOffForReal.

* Way back in 2002, someone wrote a story called the [[http://www.henneth-annun.net/stories/chapter.cfm?stid=339 Fanfic Lounge.]] It took place in [[GoodGuyBar a lounge made for fictional characters]] so they could relax between fanfics. While I'm not sure how many spin offs were made, this one was about the LordOfTheRings cast, along with Elijah Wood and Orlando Bloom, being gathered in the lounge in order to find a solution to the problems plaguing LOTR fanfiction. IIRC, this is where the LOTR cast discovers their fictional status, and Orlando Bloom and Elijah Wood are just as weirded out at meeting their fictional counterparts. The story featured the culture shock scenario for the LOTR cast was, and contained such gems as:[[spoiler: Boromir trying to open a can of Mountain Dew with a dagger, the cast becoming confused at references to future events in the books/movies (the cast was taken some time before the splitting of the Fellowship), and perhaps the best part, the cast being informed of the existence of Yaoi slash fiction, and being informed of who is frequently paired with who.]] The two RealLife actors also experience their own variant, when [[spoiler: Elijah Wood is nearly torn apart when he accidentally walks into a room used to hold {{Mary Sue}}s (and then later identifies ''Franchise/SailorMoon'' as being among them), and Orlando Bloom becoming horrified when he's told that the body he's currently inhabiting was pulled out of an NC-17 fic, explaining why he was missing his shirt (hard to explain, you'd have to read it).]]

** Actually only two things are sure in the ''Franchise/StarTrek'' TV series: Time-travel episode (usually, though not always, to the time when the specific series is being filmed on) and Evil-Verse episode, sometimes to huge extent. For example, Deep Space Nine has several "mirror universe" episodes, and in Enterprise the time travel plot lines are used to such extent as to becoming a major plot point for the series.

* About half of the episodes of DiC's ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfSuperMarioBros3'' had the characters visiting Earth in some way. In this continuity, Mario and Luigi are plumbers from "the real world" who discovered the Mushroom World on a plumbing job, and Earthlings are drawn with the same art style as the Marios. Yet Bowser and Peach and Toad refer to Earth as "the real world" even though the Mushroom World is as real to them as the real world.

* The [[http://shifti.org/wiki/Xanadu_(setting) Xanadu storyverse]], in which at a fairly large convention called "[[TitleDrop Xanadu]]" all of the [[BecomingTheCostume costumes become real]]. While most stories focus on weirdness and some on [[UsefulNotes/FurryFandom furries]], naturally a number of cosplayers were featured, with varying levels of mental change, from "Whoa, suddenly my costume is perfect!" to "Where is this place? Where did my TrueCompanions go?" Two stories have [[RefugeeFromTVLand characters and such from fictional fiction]]; [[http://shifti.org/wiki/Slinx Slinx]], a {{Pokemon}} {{Expy}}, and [[http://shifti.org/wiki/The_Perils_of_Voice_Acting The Perils Of Voice Acting]], a pastiche of He-Man, She-Ra, and other cartoons from that period.

* ''WesternAnimation/SpiderMan'', in the two-part GrandFinale of TheNineties [[WesternAnimation/SpiderManTheAnimatedSeries animated series]]. One of the Spideys of the interdimensional Spider-Man team (led by "our" Spidey) was not Peter Parker, but an actor who played him. In his world, we met Creator/StanLee, voiced by... Stan Lee. He had created Spider-Man for a comic book and was surprised to find that there was a world where his creations were real. He also found Madame Web quite fascinating (she was voiced by Stan's real-life wife, Joan B. Lee.)

* A short story published in the Franchise/StarTrek fanzine ''Spockanalia'', entitled "Visit to a Weird Planet", featured Kirk, Spock, and [=McCoy=] transported to the real world, specifically to the filming of ''Series/StarTrek''.
** Years later, a sequel, "Visit to a Weird Planet Revisited", {{inverted}} the trope. That story has Leonard Nimoy, William Shatner, and [=DeForest=] Kelly accidentally transported to the "real" ''Enterprise''.

* In ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'' episode [[Recap/DarkwingDuckS1E40TwitchingChannels 'Twitching Channels']], Megavolt invents a device that allows him to travel through electrical wires, appliances, and broadcast signals. He proceeds to use television sets as warp gates to enable easy theft and getaway on a crime spree, which Darkwing must of course put a stop to. In hot pursuit, the two go on [[TrappedInTVLand a chase scene across the channels of TV Land]], and ultimately stumble out of a television set into a world where St. Canard is merely the setting of a popular TV show, and the locals are human beings. It seems a corrupt animation executive has a device that lets him see alternate universes, from which he steals plots for his own shows. Darkwing is (after a little comical blackmail) welcomed with open arms and made a star of the stage, but he ultimately grows bored and wants to go back to where he has real villains to fight. Eventually he goes home, but the device gets damaged. When the animated executive inspects it, it is now fixed to the world of ''WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers''.
