* The Disney series ''WesternAnimation/{{Bonkers}}'' is similar to ''Who Framed Roger Rabbit?'', treating cartoon characters as actors. The title bobcat is a washed-up cartoon star working as a cop in the "real world". If you're wondering how they pulled that off in pure animation, "Real" things and people were [[RealIsBrown painted in a shade darker]] than "Toon" people and objects, as well as having a much more subdued range of motion and especially reaction. Humans were also drawn with [[FourFingeredHands five fingers]], which becomes a plot point in one episode. The characters seemed to be [[GenreSavvy aware]] that different physics applied to 'toon characters, and even referred to them like an ethnic minority.

* A few ''Series/MrShow'' episodes do this. The "Biosphere" sketch features DavidCross, after unsuccessfully trying to pick up woman scientists, interacting with LimitedAnimation animals, trying to get advice. Also, to get David out of a cult, TomKenny reveals who he'll meet when he goes to heaven, all of who are animated. Also the Disney-esque birds in the Intervention link that fly along with a singing John Ennis.

* The {{Trope Namer|s}}, ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit''. The special effects included several mechanical props covered by the animation to create the illusion of Toons being able to interact with real objects. A barroom had slots in the floor and puppeteers with large poles so animated penguins could carry real serving trays. A sink was built with a robotic pipe thingy so Roger Rabbit could splash in the sink and spit out a mouthful of water.

As one critic said in their review, "although this wasn't the first time that cartoon characters have shared the screen with live actors, it was the first time they did it on their own terms and made it look real"

* ''Theatre/AvenueQ'': Nobody bats an eyelash at puppets and humans interacting (though a team-up with the cast of ''FiddlerOnTheRoof'' for Broadway Cares explored the idea in greater depth.) The audience can easily be lulled into ignoring the actors onstage who are controlling the puppets. This can be jarring when the cast comes out for the curtain-call at the end ''without'' the puppets in their hands. ("Who's ''that'' guy?")
