* The early BettyBoop cartoons were racy, surreal, and featured a lot of hot jazz music and vocals by the original king of cool, CabCalloway. These musical numbers were often [=BLAMs=], though, as in "Minnie the Moocher", in which Betty is very suddenly and for no apparent reason accosted by a singing, dancing ghost walrus (a rotoscoped Calloway). Yes, a ''ghost walrus'', who then proceeds to sing the eponymous song for no reason at all. This is pretty strange even by the standards of early Betty Boop.

* In the ''ChucklewoodCritters'' TV special "Which Witch is Which", Ranger Jones leaves his Halloween party to investigate something, but when he does, the scene cuts to a pointless music video showing these witches that perform all these magic spells. This segment/song holds nothing to the plot at all.

* The song from the ''WesternAnimation/PortlandBill'' episode [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1EabYyv-oX8 Baking Day]]. It has no bearing on the plot, there were never any songs in the episodes before this one, and there were never any songs in the episodes after it.

** InUniverse this special is a musical Christmas play Mr. Magoo happens to be starring in, so the sequence fits if only because there hasn't been a song for awhile. But television airings of the cartoon tend to cut out the entire "it's a play" framework for time, leaving viewers wondering what the hell the point was.

* The end of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' episode "Burns, Baby Burns". Homer and Larry have just been caught staging a kidnapping, when suddenly the whole scene turns into a party. Lampshaded when Marge asks where the music and liquor is coming from, and Homer replies, "It's a party, Marge. It doesn't have to make sense." Although this can be seen as a jab at how many of Rodney Dangerfield's (who was voicing Larry Burns) movies seem to end with a spontaneous party. Specifically, it's referencing his spontaneous party in ''Film/{{Caddyshack}}'', which even had the same Journey song "Any Way You Want It." It was something of a BLAM in that movie, too.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheLionGuard:''The song "Tonight We Strike." In it, the hyena Janja outlines his plan to attack the Pride Lands at night and kill all the animals while they're sleeping. What actually happens is that the hyenas sneak in to the Pride Lands during the day and cause a gazelle stampede. Most likely what happened is the song was not revised after the plot for the episode was rewritten, probably due to time or budget constraints, causing the song to not mesh well with the rest of the episode.
