Sometimes, people are found of depicting the setting of the show creatively. Whenever supernatural or weird stuff are involved like magic or fantastic science etc., they want it to act strange in a clever fashion. One of those ways is making the reality the characters exist act like textiles.
The setting that surrounds the characters can be torn by sharp objects, formed from woven pictures, folded into Hammerspace or held as a tangible object.
- In Seijuu Sentai Gingaman, Space Pirate Shelinda orders an invasion of the Ginga Forest. When she discovers it's protected by a magical barrier, she easily solves this by cutting the forest illusion and throwing it away like a rag.
- In Courage the Cowardly Dog, Courage and his owners are forced to become roommates to a snowman who fled his home because of global warming. Courage solves this by flying to the North Pole and mends the gigantic tear in the sky using Muriel's sewing tools.
- In MAD, a short gag involves a man asking a hot dog vendor for a hot dog with everything. The vendor rips out the setting besides the two and puts it on the hot dog.
- In the Phineas and Ferb episode 'Wizard of Odd', when Candance wakes up in Patchkinland, she suspects Phineas and Ferb are involved. The duo reveal themselves by pulling the background like a backdrop.
