Often serves as a cheap excuse for Mood Lighting: for instance, when the singer sings that he's blue, he is surrounded by a blue spotlight or camera filter.

Ludwig Von Drake: Now, alright, we know that everybody don't have television sets with color, so... we're gonna do a version for them, we don't want you to feel left out of it. Here's for you...
Black black gray white gray gray gray white white white gray gray white, black.
Black black gray white gray gray gray white white gray gray gray black, black.
Alright, now you're happy? You don't feel left out? Now I wanna get back to my song.
- "Pink, the sunrise is pink, and so is a rose, a buttercup glows all yellowy..."
- In the pilot of Darkwing Duck, Gozalen sings a lullaby her grandfather taught her to Darkwing since he doesn't know any, which is mostly singing random colors that exist in the rainbow in a seemingly random and redundant order. That is until Darkwing notices that her grandfather's Zero Point interface cannon has a color coded keyboard.

- In Numberblocks, Seven's Image Song, "Your Lucky Charm" has "Rainbow Time!" as its own refrain, along with a line, referring to the fact that he is a tower of seven blocks, with each block in a color of the rainbow, with rainbow hair on top, reflecting the traditional seven colours of the rainbow.
Seven: Rainbow time!
Seven: My first block is the same as you.
Seven: My second block is the same as two.
Seven: My third block is just like number three.
Seven: My fourth block is green, as you can see! Blue for five. Indigo for six. Violet is for seven...oh, that's me! I've got seven rainbow-coloured blocks, that makes me unique.
