* ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated'' is stylistically set in what looks to be the 1960s or 1970s, so vinyl records and the like have their place, but such futuristic marvels like cassette players, compact discs and cellphones make appearances. Despite the presence of Laptops, desktops by in large are bulky and resemble computers from the early 1980s.

** In the flashback sequences that take place almost twenty years ago, the original Mystery Inc. wore outfits circa 1950s or 1960s, but on the other hand, Fred Jones Sr. dressed a loose business casual (white button shirt with blazer) that wasn't popular enough until the 1980s or 1990s.

* Recent Disney TV shows based on ''Franchise/WinnieThePooh'' give it a SettingUpdate. ''WesternAnimation/TheNewAdventuresOfWinnieThePooh'' is vaguely set in the '80s, and ''My Friends Tigger And Pooh'' is definitely set in the 21st century. Honey, however, still comes in stoneware pots, rather than glass jars or squeezy bottles.

* ''WesternAnimation/IvanhoeTheKingsKnight'' features Alexander II of Scotland, as a prince and young man, during the time of Richard I of England's imprisonment in Austria. Alexander wasn't born until 1198, a year before the death of Richard.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheLittleRascals'' has the look of the late 1930s, given that the Hanna-Barbera animators created the character models by tracing photographs of the ''Our Gang'' child actors. But in "Trash Can Treasures", Buckwheat acquires a microcomputer. Another short is titled "Rock & Roll Rascals", though that type of music wouldn't exist for two more decades. They also have commercial television, and push-button traffic controls are mentioned in "The Zero Hero".

* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'', both the flashbacks and the "present" have their problems. For one thing, the Normans, who conquered England in 1066, built the first stone castles on Britain since the 6th century, which would make the Gargoyles' home castle (built in the tenth century) an impossibility. For another, people still haven't invented anything like the Steel Clan or Xanatos' winged, Rocket-{{Powered Armor}}, making them an impossibility in the 20th century as well.

* Played with in ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow''. The show is supposed to take place in the present day, but at the same time seems like it never left the 1980s and occasionally seems like it takes place in the future. All of the video games are 8-bit and the Power Glove is seen as a new invention while smartphones exist at the same time, the characters used Laserdisc while VHS was the current video format format until DVD was introduced a couple seasons later (with Blu-ray and online streaming showing up even later), and the final season had the characters living on a futuristic space station with hover boots and sentient robots.

* ''Almost'' avoided with the original ''Land Before Time''. The characters include such species as, among others, Triceratops, Saurolophus, Pteranodon, and Tyrannosaurus. So far so good, all are from late Cretaceous North America. Granted, the protagonist, Littlefoot, is a Jurassic Apatosaurus, but audiences can just pretend he's an Alamosaurus. But then there's the introduction of Spike the also Jurassic Stegosaurus, and at one point in the film there is the brief appearance of a-''Permian'' Dimetrodon?? And that's not even taking into account the sequels, which bring up a whole different mess!

* ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' is filled with this on top of FantasyKitchenSink. Jack's equivalent of feudal Japan seems to have coexisted with medieval England, the Vikings, classical Greece and even ancient Egypt. Even in Aku's BadFuture, much of Earth is primitive to various degrees; one episode can feature twenties' gangsters, one features two bounty hunters on a Wild West-esque train, one episode featured cavemen, and almost every episode will have robots in it.
