* ''Series/TheNoddyShop'' had this happen in the episode "Thunder and Lightning", in which a thunderstorm causes a blackout in the shop. The kids try to make their way through with candles and then flashlights, but then resort to just telling a Noddy story and hearing a song from the puppets.

* This is what kickstarts the climax in ''Literature/{{Franklin}}'s Magic Christmas''. A massive icestorm causes a blackout to Faraway Farm and the surrounding area, causing Franklin and Harriet's parents to leave and go check on the Collies. Grandpa Turtle slips and falls on the ice and with no way to call for help, Franklin decides to try to set off for Woodland on his own to get the help off Dr. Bear, with Harriet secretly playing the TagalongKid.

* In the Wicked oneshot, appropriately titled "Blackout", there's a blackout at Shiz. Not too much drama- unless you're Galinda and listening to your favourite radio soap opera at the time and the power cuts off at a pivotal moment...
