Examples of a literal dancing bear?
I've pruned incorrect or zero-context examples from the page - see below. The aim of the trope is to highlight where an aspect of the production has made it more famous than anything else. It's not a place to point out a gimmick that had no public reaction or interest. Some also need to be rewritten for conciseness or to give more context.
This trope is about works famous because "some gimmick involved in the production," not because they were associated with someone who later became famous.
Unusual? Perhaps, but not really a production gimmick.
Just posting here to say that this is the best name I've seen for a trope yet. Please never change this. It conjures such a wonderful image.
OK, so what am I missing here? What makes TRON not an example of this trope?
What you're missing is that it's already listed.
D'oh! OK, that's a good reason. But it also shows why it's a good idea to fill in the "Edit Reason" box, particularly for deletions. I thought I was in some bizarre Edit War with rabid TRON fans who didn't understand the Tropes Are Not Bad principle or something.

How well does it match the trope?
