* In the WesternAnimation/ChillyWilly cartoon "The Legend of Rockabye Point", Chilly puts a clarinet on the sleeping guard dog's mouth, causing it to make noise as he snores and waking him up. The polar bear gets him back to sleep by pulling out the sheet music for "Rock-a-Bye, Baby" and playing it on the clarinet. Chilly then switches the sheet with one for circus music, waking the dog up again.

* In the second WesternAnimation/GeraldMcBoingBoing cartoon "Gerald [=McBoing-Boing=]'s Symphony", Gerald is asked to stand in for an orchestra for the premiere of a new symphony. Unfortunately, some of the pages from his sound effects script get mixed in with the score, and so the music is often interrupted by sound effects. At first Gerald is fired for his mistake, until messages come pouring in praising this new piece of "avant-guard" music.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' episode "Bart Sells His Soul", Bart replaces the hymn sheets and music at the local church with those of a song called Music/IronButterfly's "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida", labelled as being titled "In the Garden of Eden" (actually "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" by Music/IronButterfly)."I. Ron Butterfly". When Reverend Lovejoy picks up on the swap (nearing the end of the entire, ''17 minute-long'' song), he remarks that it "sounds like rock and/or roll."

* On ''TheWestWing'', President Bartlett is forced to nominate complete non-entity "Bingo Bob" as a replacement V.P. to avoid a long confirmation battle, and his speech writers complain bitterly, going so far as to pen a resounding denunciation of this ridiculous lobbyist lapdog. [[HilarityEnsues Inevitably]], it ends up on the president's teleprompter by mistake. In a partial aversion, Bartlett merely gives a surprised blink and then improvises a glowing eulogy, because he is just that awesome. (And the V.P. actually requests a copy, saying he needs to be aware of what people are thinking of him.)

* Done in an episode of ''MurderSheWrote'' with an aging actor whose memory is so bad he has to rely on the teleprompter. While this looks like an EngineeredPublicConfession, it is actually a ploy on Jessica Fletcher's part to trick the real killer into exposing themselves.
* In the first episode of ''JustShootMe'', Maya is fired from her job in a newscast for changing the teleprompter on an obnoxious anchor, making her say that she got her frontal lobe removed and that she wet herself.

* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'', the CIA holds a telethon to raise funding in order to keep their torture program. Roger, who came up with the idea, becomes enraged by Stan who takes credit for it, and vows to get revenge by sabotaging the telethon. One of the tricks he pulls is messing with the teleprompter so that instead of making the joke "CIA stands for Central ''Insanity'' Agency", Stan ends up saying "Stan Smith was born with both male and female genitalia.
