I thought a little fun might be had showing examples of composers actually being inside animated films or TV series.

Some examples:

Ravi Shankar in "The Simpsons"



It's a brief appearance.

And of course John Williams made a three of appearances on "Family Guy":

First appearance:

Second appearance:

Third appearance:

And Danny Elfman was also in the show, though apparently Seth isn't a fan:

Marc Shaiman also appeared twice in "South Park".

Once in an episode playing piano for somebody (I think Satan or Saddam). He was even called "Marc" on screen.

Then he appeared playing piano for Big Gay Al in the movie "South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut":
