* In the 1953 film of ColePorter's ''Theatre/KissMeKate'', it was used quite obviously, as well as being lampshaded in the lyrics of the song in "We Open In Venice". [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_s_lTT-0pr4 Video clip here]]

* The set for the corridors of the Enterprise in classic ''Franchise/StarTrek'' consisted of one curved corridor with a couple straight ones intersecting it. The foot chase through the ship at the end of ''LetThatBeYourLastBattlefield'' passes through the same intersections many, many times.

** More subtly, the window in the Captain's Ready Room showed a moving star field at warp. This star field was on a conveyor belt.

* Some of the really cheap [[Creator/DCComics DC Superhero cartoons]] are very guilty of this. The worst example is in a Flash short in which Flash and Kid Flash chased Zoom throughout the world, including a chase in Egypt in which they pass by [[TheyJustDidntCare thirty pyramids]]. Note: there are only three "True Pyramids", and about half-a-dozen failed attempts. It wasn't just the cheap DC toons. The Franchise/{{DCAU}} did it, too.

* Pretty much every driving game until the fourth generation of games (16-bits) has them. One notable example is ''Top Gear 2'' for the [[SuperNintendoEntertainmentSystem SNES]] and [[SegaGenesis Genesis]]; before every race, you are shown a scrolling view of its location, which is also used as backdrop for the race itself.

* Lampshaded in ''WesternAnimation/VoltronForce'', when several characters are fleeing [[NInjaPirateZombieRobot zombie ninja scientists]] through a shopping mall which uses a wrap-around background. Larmina and Allura talk briefly about how they've been past these stores already; Lance claims that all malls have multiples of the same stores.

* Arguably occurs in the opening titles of ''Film/Speed''. The credits appear between the floors of a lift shaft as the camera descends many, many floors. The lift shaft is clearly a (well constructed) miniature, so it's likely the same footage, looped a number of times, masked by the large beam that obscures the view.

Occasionally Lampshaded in old WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes where the camera would zoom out and we see the characters running on a a treadmill powering the background causing the characters to jump of the treadmill and continue the chase.

* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', instead of copypasting, shares the background among as many adjacent panels as possible, even if the "camera" didn't move a bit. (At least for its first 200-and-odd strips.) It's most notable in the Starmetal arc (strips [http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0150.html #150] to #173), because the same 3 or so backgrounds are recycled over and over, but this trick is used cleverly at other points of the comic.
