So you have a character who's famous in-universe, or a popular show-within-a-show. For sake of example: ''The Alice and Bob Show''. What better way to show off that fame and popularity? ''Alice and Bob On Ice''! When you've got your own ice show, you've officially made it to the big time.

Capades-type show; they slip behind some flats and two obvious skate-doubles come out to do an ice dance in their stead. When they finished, they were crushed by the scenery, revealing that Krusty and Mel were watching TV and slacking off.

* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'', Timmy sells magical lemonade so he can afford tickets to ''Crash Nebula on Ice''.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'' had ''Reptar on Ice''. Reptar is the show's expy of Godzilla, but for some reason (even the guy playing Reptar complained about its implausibility), the ice show had him falling in love with a reporter. On the other hand, Grampa was doubtful about seeing it but thought it was brilliant once he did.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'':
** In the episode "Play It Again, D.W.", D.W. has four tickets to ''Crazy Bus Live''. Arthur doesn't want to go, but D.W. tells him that it's only fair; she had to go to ''Bionic Bunny on Ice'' when Arthur wanted to go.
** Also, in the AllCGICartoon ''Arthur's Missing Pal'' D.W is trying to win a contest to see ''Mary Moo Cow on Ice''.
* ''WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends'': In "Bloo's Brothers", Bloo's popularity has resulted in a flood of CaptainErsatz Bloos, and this becomes a problem when Mac only has two tickets to [[BlandNameProduct the Ice Charades]].
* Eddie from ''WesternAnimation/SlackerCats'' goes to see ''Film/SavingPrivateRyan'' on ice.
* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Doug}}'', Judy is a fan of ''Shakespeare on Ice''.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheCritic'' episode "A Little Deb Will Do Ya" has a subplot involving Jay's rivalry with timeslot competitor Humphrey the Hippo (an {{Expy}} of Barney the Dinosaur). One establishing shot sees an advertisement for Humphrey's Madison Square Garden event "The Hug-In" getting plastered over with a "Sold Out" banner.
