Most common in animation, where "building" all the new environments and sets is easy and cheap. Well, easy.

This plot can sometimes be connected to its opposites, the RefugeeFromTVLand and WelcomeToTheRealWorld. See also: DreamLand and AllStoriesAreRealSomewhere, with which this sometimes overlaps; PortalBook, which can trap characters in Book Land; and FisherKingdom, as the channels change the visitors. Compare and contrast IntrepidFictioneer, for when the travel is deliberate. Frequently paired with a ReadingIsCoolAesop (provided it's [[PortalBook "Trapped in Literature Land"]]).

This is common FanficFuel.

It's an unspoken rule that, somewhere in the universe, there is a show similar to ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries''.

* One of the syndicated episodes of ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'' "Who're You Calling Two-Dimensional?" had the team sucked into a cartoon dimension that, reasonably enough, ran on ToonPhysics. Another episode "Station Identification" works with a similar premise, the Ghostbusters have to fight a haunted TV station and are attacked by spooky version of TV characters including He-Man and Star Trek.

* This is the power of ''ComicBook/{{Supreme}}'' baddie the Televillain - entering into a TV show's fictional world and drawing others into it as he pleases. And, of course, changing the channel to whatever premise fits his need. In one outing he killed Monica on an episode of ''{{Friends}}'' to prove he wasn't kidding around.
