* ''ArthurKingOfTimeAndSpace'' debuted in 2004 and has updated daily for most of its history, though a fair number of those were filler strips. Despite a couple of extended hiatuses, it is currently (as of October 2013) over 3400 strips.

* Music/{{Prince}}. He has put out 23 physical albums in his 30 some year career. Add on that side projects (i.e. The Time, The New Power Generation, Madhouse, etc.), albums with tracks written by him, Internet only albums, vinyl only b-sides, remixes, and Compilations, that adds up to around 125 albums ([[http://princevault.com/index.php/Discography Source]]). If you think tracking down all those albums is going to be hard, it gets better. A majority of those albums [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes are not in print any more]]. And that's not including his Unreleased Material. A 34 Disc compilation of said material is circulating. If you are thinking of getting into collecting his live shows, Good Luck.
* The band Bull of Heaven goes to UpToEleven. Not only do they release many, many albums every year (including '''148''' in 2009 alone!), they are also responsible for some of the longest albums in existence (their latest, ''210: Like a Wall in Which an Insect Lives and Gnaws'', is '''5+ years long'''). It should be noted that much of this is not exactly music by most people's definition; the exceptionally long tracks are just arrangements of ultra-slowed-down sound effects and loops thereof. Much of it has never even been listened to by the creator, simply queued with software and released.

* If you thought the other games on this list were bad, you haven't seen the grandaddy of them all, ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons''. Just as an example, you could expect ''at least'' a book a month during 3.5e's heyday, not counting published adventures and setting-specific sourcebooks or the many years of both ''Dragon Magazine'' and ''Dungeon Magazine'' providing even more supplementary material.

* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' is over 780,000 words long as of June 2016, with a 27,000 word two-shot spinoff. This is as long as the first five Harry Potter books, plus the first one over again, combined. And it only covers the ''Prisoner of Azkaban'', thanks to the bulking out qualities of the SwitchingPOV and the author liking the sound of his own voice. As it is, he's promised that he sequels will be shorter and more streamlined, but it's still a pretty intimidating sight.

* CODblackopsPS, a collection of recorded ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps'' clips, is an extreme example for a Website/YouTube channel with '''[[UpToEleven OVER 1,000,000 UPLOADS]]''' at its peak. Several videos there have since been deleted, and it's nearly impossible to see all in one sitting.

* [[Creator/TheKingOfHate Darksyde Phil]] is infamous for this. His [=DSPGaming=] channel has over '''''20,000 videos'''''. [=TheKingOfHateVlogs=] has over 400 videos, most of which are over half an hour long. That's just two of them, before you get into his alternate channels, his streams, his older channels that are mostly inactive, his fan channels, his hatedom channels...

* TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons show ''WebVideo/CriticalRole'' has episodes that last three hours on average, with the longest one being nearly ''six hours long''. With 53 episodes as of this writing, and new episodes being released weekly, it can take a long time for a newcomer to get caught up.

* Mercifully averted with ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes''. The strip only lasted a decade (not counting two sabbaticals by Watterson), so the number of strips published (even when you include the poems and extra comics included in the treasuries) is pretty manageable compared to the above strips. Though of course, quite a few of these strips are fairly wordy due to Calvin's Sesquipadelian Loquaciousness, and the fantasy sequences and even the standard outdoor backgrounds are surprisingly rich in detail for a comic strip, so between keeping a dictionary handy and searching out all the Easter eggs, you'll be at it for quite some time.
