** Notably, during Joey's original tenure on the show (and when it was revisited in Season 6's "what if?" episode), the real sets and actors from ''DOOL'' were used. When he returned to the show in the last few seasons it became a completely fictionalized version.

When a SoapOpera appears as a ShowWithinAShow in another genre, it is nearly always done as an [[StylisticSuck over-the-top parody]] of the genre or at least as a quick portrayal of cliched forms of its tropes, including [[SoapWheel (but by no means limited to)]]:

*There's a Wicked oneshot "Blackout" in which Elphaba and Fiyero mock a (radio) soap opera that Galinda (and Boq) are obsessed with, when the power goes off during a pivotal moment of the show. They try and predict the ending, with many of the ridiculous tropes mentioned above.
*The House MD fanfiction "Woman" has House and Cameron having a bet by trying to predict the storyline of one of House's soaps that he watches.

* SpriteComic ''Oldskooled'' has the ''VideoGame/NinjaGaiden''-based soap "[[http://oldskooled.comicgenesis.com/archive.html?date=20010219 All My Ninjas]]" in one arc. It's irresistible to anyone save [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Mario]], who'd rather drink beer and gets annoyed that the bartender would rather watch the soap than do his job. Besides scenes from the show, we see Mario's attempts to put a stop to things.
