* "The Punk Rock Scooby" Short from The second ''Scooby Doo and Scrappy Doo'' series. It starts out normally enough, with Scooby, Shaggy and Scrappy auditioning in a Battle Of The Bands contest. Then an alien spaceship comes out of nowhere full of aliens that inexpilicably look and act exactly like Scrappy and assume that he is one of their own and has been kidnapped by Scooby and Shaggy. And that's only the beginning.
-->'''Alien''': Ta-ta-ta-ta! Plutonian Power.

* The ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' and ''WesternAnimation/UncleGrandpa'' AprilFoolsDay CrossOver "Say Uncle" is this (at least for the former show, this kind of stuff is mostly normal for the latter). It [[BreakingTheFourthWall breaks the fourth wall]], has lots of ZanyCartoon gags, and is non-{{Canon}} (Uncle Grandpa even tells that to the audience and says to "not worry," probably referencing the ''Steven Universe'' {{Fandom}}'s worries). The episode includes Pearl, Amethyst, and Garnet all getting stuck in a VoidBetweenTheWorlds, with Steven going to Uncle Grandpa's world. It ends with Uncle Grandpa reading a check-list of classic Creator/CartoonNetwork characters (such as those from ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' and ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'') he has visited, with the only one unchecked being "WesternAnimation/{{Clarence}}," possibly {{Foreshadowing}} to another Bizarro {{Crossover}}.

And to add more weirdness into the mix, UG's checklist contains one show that predates everything else on the list and [[UnexpectedCharacter nobody expected would show up]]- ''SwatKats''.

* Episode 9 of ''LightNovel/KonoSubarashiiSekaiNiShukufukuO'' A secret Succubus Club opens up in town & the whole episode is all about women in lingerie feeling themselves up, nudity, & fanservice. It contributes nothing at all to the series & succubi are never brought up or shown again. Normally the show is very lite on ecchi & focuses equally on the characters. Darkness is supposed to be hyper perverted & Kazuma is basically a Chaste Hero who finds his comrades repugnant. In this episode Kazuma has sexual tension up to 11, Darkness is out of character, & the other two main protagonists are barely in focus.

* ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'' Operation: R.E.P.O.R.T. set entirely in the character's parody rich imagination's... Numbuh 4 turns into a super saiyan. Operation: W.H.I.T.E.H.O.U.S.E. which was also AllJustADream did make self-contained sense until the very end when Numbuh 1 turns into a big monster for no explained reason.

** "GI Jeff" was mostly animated in 8-bit, and centres around ''Franchise/GIJoe'' versions of the characters. [[spoiler:It, too, is in a character's mind, but this time it's Jeff's.]]

* The hidden track in [[Music/MyChemicalRomance My Chemical Romance's]] TheBlackParade, "Blood", is a song about drinking blood done in a vaguely Broadway style with bad sound quality, and it has nothing to do with the rest of the album. Bizzaro indeed.

** "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS2E8TheChase The Chase]]". A story where each episode takes the characters to a new location at a time where this was not the norm. There is a cameo from Music/TheBeatles. An obnoxious {{Eagleland}}er tourist spends half an episode laughing at a Dalek, and the actor playing him comes back playing a companion (!!) later in the story. They have a JourneyToTheCenterOfTheMind which turns out to be a horror theme park, in which the ComicTrio Daleks fight Dracula (and lose). The Daleks make an EvilKnockoff of the Doctor said to be indistinguishable and treated as such by the characters, and he [[ObviousStuntDouble looks nothing like him]]. A Dalek falls off a boat for no reason. Giant killer mushrooms are involved. Robots with flamethrowers try to put Barbara in a robot zoo. It's the sort of thing that [[UnintentionalPeriodPiece could only get made in 1965]] - love it or hate it, they will never make a story like this again.
** "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS3E4TheDaleksMasterPlan The Feast of Steven]]", episode 7 of ''The Daleks' Master Plan''. Our heroes have a chase through Twenties Hollywood, get arrested by police in the 1960s, and end up BreakingTheFourthWall.
** "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS6E2TheMindRobber The Mind Robber]]", in which the TARDIS materialises outside reality and then explodes, and the characters find themselves randomly interacting with fictional characters.
** "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS34E3RobotOfSherwood Robot of Sherwood]]". While comedic episodes are nothing unusual, this episode, in which the Doctor and Clara somehow manage to locate Robin Hood (even though the Doctor is certain he's a fictional character) and engage in comedic goings-on, feels out of place given its placement early in the Twelfth Doctor's first season. It doesn't help that Creator/PeterCapaldi plays the Doctor almost completely differently than he plays the character the rest of the season and the episode as a whole takes on the feeling of something that could easily be explained away as AllJustADream, though it isn't.

* "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS35E11HeavenSent Heaven Sent]]" has been pretty much described as this by the producers themselves: an episode with (for all intents and purposes), a single speaking role, the Doctor, with Creator/PeterCapaldi being tasked with keeping an episode moving and interesting virtually all on his own. Amazingly, it works.

** "Avatar Day" has the heroes visiting a ''really'' weird village whose inhabitants hate the Avatar because a previous Avatar (Kyoshi) allegedly killed their leader Chin the Great several centuries ago. They arrest Aang for his predecessor's supposed crime, but Aang refuses to escape because he wants to [[ClearMyName clear the Avatar's name]]. Katara and Sokka gather evidence that could prove Kyoshi's innocence, but Aang botches his testimony and subsequently tries to give a last-ditch testimony while disguised unconvincingly as Kyoshi. This somehow summons the spirit of Avatar Kyoshi herself, who admits that she ''did'' kill Chin (but merely by refusing to save him after he [[TheDogShotFirst shot first]], so to speak). This cements the Avatar's guilt, and the villagers choose Aang's punishment by spinning a carnival wheel of various {{Cruel and Unusual Death}}s with "whipping post" and "community service" randomly thrown in. The Wheel of Punishment lands on "boiled in oil," but at that moment a gang of Fire Nation goons randomly shows up, and Aang forces the villagers to commute his sentence to "community service" (read: saving their sorry asses from the Fire Nation). After Aang and company defeat the Fire Nation goons, the villagers change their Avatar Day tradition from burning giant effigies of the Avatar to eating raw dough replicas of Aang.

* ''ComicBook/{{Tintin}}''
** The story [[Recap/TintinFlight714 Flight 714]] starts out normal enough, when {{Tintin}} and his friends are kidnapped by Rastapopulus's henchmen and kept prisoners on a small Indonesian island. But it soon become clear that something weird is going on, and it turns out that aliens have been coming to the island for millennia. And yeah, everybody except for Snowy forget all about the adventure due to LaserGuidedAmnesia.
