* Control Freak (again) in ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo''. This time he shoves the team inside "Pretty Pretty Pegasus", a show Raven is obsessed with. She loves it but everyone else is weirded out by it. Control Freak also loves this show, apparently.

* ''Day By Day'': The best-known episode of this short-lived NBC sitcom of the late 1980s was "A Very Brady Episode," where teenager Ross Harper -- after being yelled at by his parents about goofing off and getting poor grades as a result -- falls asleep and imagines himself in an episode of ''Series/TheBradyBunch'' as "long-lost Brady son" Chuck Brady. A satire of the original series, Chuck interacts with several of the show's main characters and gets advice about his poor grades from Mike, and all is going well ... until the family begins to repeat their dialogue. "Chuck" wonders what's amiss, and Mike explains what he's seeing is a rerun. Everything becomes chaotic and Ross screams to be let free into the real world ... after which he wakes up and realizes it was AllJustADream.

* ''SleepingWithTheGirls'' is all about this, fused with semi-uncontrolled reality hopping. Before you ask, no, there's no sex, the title's just like that. A guy who is an anime fan in real life is, for unknown reasons, being teleported to the side of eight of his favorite anime characters. The problem? He is transported the instant he falls asleep, and the characters he likes are a) always asleep when he teleports to them, and b) they tend to run in the {{Tsundere}} category. One of the most realistic takes on a self-insert, he nearly dies several times because they can throw punches he can't survive, not to mention that he almost never gets enough sleep. He's cycling through eight separate worlds, each one one of his favorite anime/manga. Currently in the middle of its second of what the author claims is a three-volume story. See the trope page for more details.
* ''MassVexations,'' is probably one of THE examples of Trapped in TV Land done right. Another self-insert story, it shows Art, a quirky college guy, suddenly transported to the world of Mass Effect. He doesn't gain super-powers, and it shows how a fan of the game could realistically interact with a fictional world, while trying to hide that he knows pretty much every single outcome from when he arrives (near the beginning of [=ME1=]) to the end of [=ME2=].

* The SonicStorybookSeries -- two so far -- in which Sonic is pulled into classical story books. The first one is based on the ''Literature/ArabianNights'' story of Aladdin, and the second on KingArthur. Both featured SonicTheHedgehog replacing the titled hero, along with the title itself.

** Garfield being trapped in a TV was also the main plot of the Sega Genesis video game ''GarfieldCaughtInTheAct'', which brought him through stages themed after Horror, Pirates, the Stone Age, a FilmNoir, an Egyptian pyramid, and the final level being called the "Season Finale".
