* ''Moody's Point'' on ''Series/TheAmandaShow''. Bonus points for ending on a never-resolved CliffHanger.

* ''Moody's Point'' on ''Series/TheAmandaShow''.''Series/TheAmandaShow'', though it's more of a parody of {{Teen Drama}}s. Bonus points for ending on a never-resolved CliffHanger.



* The ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'' episode "Kid TV" has Phil and Lil act out a soap opera titled, ''The Teeny and the Tiny''. The plot of the story shown apparently involves Lil preparing to have her brain removed, while Phil tries to talk her out of the operation. Angelica mistakes this for a different kind of {{opera}}, and plays a singing waitress dressed as a {{Valkyrie|s}}.

The same episode has Stu briefly switching to a soap, where a girlfriend says something about her boyfriend finally regaining his memory.
* ''WesternAnimation/AllGrownUp'' has Angelica watching a soap while in hospital with a broken nose, where a character's brain is 'melting'. She quotes the girl's MadnessMantra to make the doctors think she has brain damage.

* In ''[[TenchiMuyo Tenchi in Tokyo]]'' Princess Ayeka in one episode gets down to watch what she claims is her favorite soap opera: "''Everyone'' has amnesia!"
** In the TenchiMuyo OAV the girls all watch a strange alien soap opera, but it doesn't get much actual screen time.

** Later on, [[spoiler: Peridot]], of all people, ends up hooked on a camp-based show called Camp Pining Hearts (pictured above). Or rather, hooked on [[UpToEleven one episode for 78 hours]]. Steven wisely decides not to tell her there's more than one.

* ''GoodLuckCharlie'' had three of the characters suddenly become engrossed in a soap called ''Tears of Tomorrow'' and then move on to ''another'' soap when the first got cancelled (not-so-coincidentally at a time when cancelling long-running soaps was making headlines). The CreditsGag is a reenactment of ''Tears of Tomorrow'', which crams in a lot of the soap conventions mentioned in the main article within a space of ''30 seconds''.
