* ''Radio/ImSorryIllReadThatAgain'' regularly visited the BBC Censorship Comittee, portrayed as a bunch of elderly near-senile old buffers who were completely out of touch with Britain in theSixties and who saw filth in even the most innocuous things.

-->(John Cleese as Buffer) They say we're unrepresentative! In fact, we're a perfectly reasonable cross-selection of Tory MP's, retired colonels, rural vicars, nuns, prudes and, of course, loonies!

* Combined with NonStandardGameOver in ''VideoGame/JumpStart5thGrade''. The game's storyline involves stopping a MadScientist from blowing up industrial plants. If you fail to disarm one of the bombs, the game's protagonist breaks the fourth wall to inform that you have to try again because bombs can't go off in an educational game.

** '''Colonel''': Raiden, you won't be able to attack, enter "Choking Mode" or "Hanging Mode" while you're naked.
** '''Raiden''': Why not?
** '''Colonel''': Is it necessary to ask? I just don't think it's right for you perform those kinds of maneuvers. [[NoFourthWall There could be...complications.]]
*** Subverted for a bit since you can still attack.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Histeria}}'' try to dodge the censor; rather the censor would actually come out "onstage" and let viewers know that what's being mentioned isn't appropriate for kids' TV (such as "vestal virgins," the Roman vomitoriums, Thomas Crapper[[note]]the inventor of the indoor toilet[[/note]], use of the phrase "War is hell," and use of "Damn the torpedoes"[[note]]Of course, after she went out to sea and got hit by one, she now realized why "Damn the torpedoes" was appropriate[[/note]]), and would sometimes change it (like when Billy the Kid told the kids on his show to go out to the shed and get his gun, Lydia came out, told him that what he was suggesting kids do would lead to copycat accidents, and then dressed him up like a girl so the network can get bigger ratings from girl viewers). The fact that the quotes and names are actual historical facts and Histeria was, for all its flaws, an educational show, probably helped to keep the real censors at bay.

Writers who have to deal with censors on a daily basis love nothing more than to make fun of those corporate bastards who ruin their fun, usually by [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar slipping in something that they hope the censors wouldn't notice]].
