* ''Series/TheMuppetShow'' had a few episodes where both the skits and main plot had the same theme (the Creator/VincentPrice and Music/AliceCooper episodes were both themed around spooky things, for instance), but those weren't nearly as bizarre as episodes where the plot and skits revolved around the Muppets acting out a story as different characters, such as the Liza Minelli (a murder mystery with Kermit as a detective, Liza as his romantic interest, Fozzie as Patrol Bear, most of the Muppet cast as ''[[spoiler: murder victims]]'', and [[spoiler: JustForFun/StatlerAndWaldorf as the murderers]]), Brooke Shields (a re-telling of ''Alice in Wonderland''), and Lynn Redgrave (a re-telling of ''Robin Hood'') episodes. Especially weird about the first and last is that the plot continues to play out backstage, when nobody in the Muppet Theater's audience could see what was going on.
* ''Series/SesameStreet'' also enters this territory when the main plots are about characters starring in a story. At least two or three episodes from the '90s framed these as the Muppets and humans putting on a play.

* ''Anime/SailorMoon'' has ''Sailor Moon R'''s episode 67, a BeachEpisode that features the main characters having an island vacation in which Chibiusa befriends a dinosaur and the main characters use their superpowers to save said dinosaurs from a volcano. Yea, that's right. The main characters fight a volcano to save a pair of dinosaurs. The show normally doesn't venture into such fantastical territory being acceptable, and the existence of ''living dinosaurs'' never comes up in the show again. It's generally considered one of the most pointless episodes of the entire show since absolutely nothing happens to progress the plot or flesh out the main characters. Creator/DiC [[MissingEpisode never dubbed it]] into English and Creator/ADVFilms left it off its English subbed DVD releases entirely, as it wasn't in the masters obtained from Creator/DiC (they initially claimed Creator/ToeiAnimation didn't give them the episode due to Creator/NaokoTakeuchi not liking it). Most people only complained that it made their DVD collections incomplete, as opposed to genuinely missing the episode. Though with Creator/{{Viz}}'s rights acquisition, it will finally see release stateside.

** "The Punk Rock Scooby" Short from the second [[''WesternAnimation/TheScoobyDooAndScrappyDooShow'' ''ScoobyDooAndScrappyDoo'']] 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 inexplicably 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.

* Issue 33 of ''ComicBook/TransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye'', which diverges from the book's typical space adventures to depict a ''{{Series/Community}}''-esque genre homage of sitcom. The characters spend most of the issue in their human holomatter disguises and the tech is [[MohsScaleOfScienceFictionHardness even more scientifically soft]] than the anything else in the comic. However it averts the "never mentioned again" symptom thanks to James Roberts' insistence on avoiding filler no matter what; the issue, despite it's strangeness, actually develops the plot a bit, furthering Swerve's character development and setting up the Agent 113 subplot.
