* One time on ''MadAboutYou'' Paul got some change for a pay phone (remember those?) from a street performer by putting a dollar in the guitar case and taking coins out. He was looked at askance by the performer and passers-by, who thought he was just taking money out. He made a big deal about putting in a five and just taking a little change.

* ''[[MahouTsukaiNiTaisetsuNaKotoNatsuNoSora Mahou Tsukai Ni Taisetsu Na Koto ~Natsu no Sora~]]'' has Yasuko, who sings and plays guitar across Shitokitazawa station in Tokyo. Main character Sora loves listening to her performances, and Yasuko's songs form a loose commentary on what happens in the series. Yasuko even interacts directly with the main cast later on and is included in the DistantFinale [[spoiler:where she is shown to have a serious career in music]].
* [[Main/MerryChristmasInGotham The Christmas episode]] of Anime/TheBigO has a saxophone player as a one-time protagonist. Although he's not very talented, he is portrayed in a very good light and certainly not a Main/DreadfulMusician.

* ''HomeMovies'' had a street musician, basically a bum tunelessly strumming his guitar and mumbling a rambling improv. Mc Guirk, after flirting with a waitress, drops a bill into the guy's guitar case in a rare good mood, then realizes he dropped in a twenty. He goes to fish it out and gets into an altercation with the guy, who starts yell-singing about "fatso" taking his money. Then, to add insult to injury, Mc Guirk sees that the waitress is the guy's girlfriend.
