* Frivoli in ''TwiceUponATime''. Even though some of the main characters are from that pink wonderland of good dreams, and the movie begins there, the bulk of the movie is set in the much bleaker lands of Din and Murk. That being said, the movie implies that even Frivoli [[CrapsaccharineWorld might not be as idyllic as we first see it]]: [[spoiler:The tendency of the authorities to blame others for their own incompetence is why these Frivolians wind up in Din and Murk.]]

Added DiffLines:

* The Piper at the Gates of Dawn segment of ''WesternAnimation/TheWindInTheWillows1995'' was this. Mole and Rat, while looking for Otter's missing son, stumble on Pan, the pagan god, who's playing his pipes by the river's edge. The realise they're not afraid and he disappears, revealing Portly, safe and sound. The whole scene is adapted almost exactly from the original novel.

* In the Dreamworks ''WesternAnimation/MrPeabodyAndSherman'' film, there is a scene where the main characters time-travel to [[TheRenaissance Renaissance-era]] Florence, Italy. There they meet Leonardo Da Vinci, Mona Lisa, and overall their visit there was much more peaceful and relaxing than other time periods like UsefulNotes/TheFrenchRevolution or TheTrojanWar.
