* ''WesternAnimation/SoupeOpera'': The entire show. Two minutes of fruit and vegetables moving around and form animals, not to mention the music: electronic drums and inhuman noises. Then you go back to your standard kids' shows like nothing happened.

** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3bVNjACp9tI Shot in the Butt with a Dart]]" from "Bad Hair Day" has Doofenshmirtz, after getting mistaken for a rare "tangerine orangutan" and being shot with a tranquilizer dart, singing a random show-tune about it, only to lose consciousness in the middle of his song.
-->I'm blurry and drowsy, but balladry beckons\\

** A straighter example appears at the beginning of the episode "Continuum of Cartoon Fools", in which Dexter is seen sitting at a desk, scribbling something on a piece of paper and looking at a stopwatch while periodically making a bizarre noise that sounds like "[[http://baaaawt.ytmnd.com/ BAAAAWT]]". It's never brought up again, and we never do find out just what the ''hell'' he was doing it for.
*** He was timing a storyboard of the very cartoon he was in. That...still doesn't make sense, though.

*** He was
for. Apparently, this behavior is a common technique in the animation industry for timing a storyboard of storyboard, making the very cartoon he was in. That...still scene something of an inside joke, but it's complete gibberish if you aren't aware of that, which would apply to just about anyone who doesn't make sense, though.work in the animation industry.

* ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'' had an episode where Dexter is stalked by a little girl with enormous, soul-penetrating eyes. While the episode, like most episodes of the series, contains little-to-no background music to maintain a quiet and suspenseful vibe, all of the sudden we're inexplicably treated to a colorful, poppy, saccharinely upbeat musical number to illustrate Dexter's frustration. Although completely out of left field, it remains one of the more popular scenes in the show's history, and could be seen as either an EarWorm or the show's CrowningMusicOfAwesome.

While the episode, like most episodes of the series, contains little-to-no background music to maintain a quiet and suspenseful vibe, all of the sudden we're inexplicably treated to eyes, suddenly segues into a colorful, poppy, saccharinely upbeat musical number to illustrate in the middle of it which illustrates Dexter's frustration. Although It comes completely out of left field, and doesn't match the show's general tendency to not use background music in favor of a more quiet vibe. Still, it remains one of the more popular scenes in the show's history, and could be seen as either an EarWorm or the show's CrowningMusicOfAwesome.

* 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.
