* In ''{{Chaotic}}'', the episode ''Chaotic Crisis'' involves the Underworlders reverse-engineering human technology to create portals linking Perim, Chaotic, and Earth. ([[spoiler:It was AllJustADream, however.]])
* About half of the episodes of DiC's ''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.

* ''Film/BlazingSaddles'' destroys the fourth wall by having the grand finale gun battle/brawl spill out into the rest of the Warner Brothers Studio. We follow the characters through the commissary, through another movie set (where one of the characters announces he works for director Creator/MelBrooks). We then follow the villain to the Chinese Theater in Hollywood where he attends a showing of ... ''Blazing Saddles''.

* An episode of ''Series/DiagnosisMurder'' had Amanda Bentley, played by Victoria Rowell, win a trip to the set of ''TheYoungAndTheRestless'', in which Victoria Rowell also starred. Other regular characters from within the show and real actors from ''The Young and the Restless'' playing themselves, plus actors playing fictional ''The Young and the Restless'' crew, commented on [[ActorAllusion how much Amanda Bentley looked like Victoria Rowell]].

** Additionally, there's the Series/StarTrekVoyager episode which throws the crew back in time to 1995 which essentially operates as a real world episode having them land in the then present.
** In fact it's actually MORE likely that they arrived in 'our' reality, or at least a parallel reality, as according to Star Trek lore half the world was under control of the dictator Khan Noonien Singh in 1995. It is certainly not evident in this episode, nor questioned by any of the characters.
* In an episode of ''GrowingPains'', Ben Seaver wishes his life were more like TV, and wakes up to discover his entire life is a television show called ''Meet the Seavers''. All the actors are referred to by their real names, and members of the production crew feature prominently. At one point Kirk Cameron, who usually plays Ben's older brother Mike, confides to Ben [[MindScrew that he actually is Mike, and has been trapped in the real world for years]].

* {{Spider-Man}}, 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.)

* In ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'' episode '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 [[strike:weird beakless mutants]] 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''.
* A ''[[TheSimpsons Simpsons Halloween Special]]'' had Homer being sucked into The Third Dimension ([[{{sting}} dun-dun-dun]]!). He eventually destroyed that universe and wound up in our world.
** Specifically the erotic cake store at 13567 Ventura Boulevard in Los Angeles. The funniest part is that Homer is absolutely ''frightened'' by three dimensions - but is ''instantly'' calmed by the erotic cakes. Cue curious people staring at a 3D Homer, even gazing at him inside the store.
