*** In the episode "Hide and Q", the character Q grants the characters wishes, and teenage Wesley Crusher wishes to be 10 or so years older. Then suddenly, BAAM he's transformed into a strapping, tall and exceptionally hunky man. We then cut to Geordi [=LaForge=] leering at the new Wesley and saying, "Hey, Wes. Not bad." It has been noted by several sources that [=LeVar=] Burton's character was originally supposed to be gay, but this is the only time it appears to be shown on screen, in this season one episode. Thereafter, it is NEVER EVER EVER EVER mentioned again, and the [=LaForge=] character eventually falls in love with a holodeck character then eventually an actual woman, and they live happily ever after. BLAM.

*** The episode "Genesis". Everyone de-evolved into prehistoric creatures, Troi was amphibious, Worf was almost like a rhino-Klingon and considered her his mate, Dr Crusher was an ape, and, perhaps the most FridgeLogic-y of all, Spot the cat de-evolved into an ''iguana''.

*** The season 7 episode "Genesis". Everyone except Picard and Data de-evolved into prehistoric creatures, Troi was amphibious, Worf was almost like a rhino-Klingon and considered her his mate, Dr Crusher Riker was a caveman, Barclay was a human-spider hybrid, Nurse Ogawa was an ape, and, perhaps the most FridgeLogic-y of all, Spot the cat de-evolved into an ''iguana''.



** ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' went off the rails a few times late in the series, producing such bizarro episodes as the holodeck baseball game and the ''Film/OceansEleven'' knockoff where the main cast ignored their duty in favor of pulling off a heist to save the holodeck lounge singer from a gangster. (No, it '''''doesn't''''' make sense in context.)

** The final season gave us "Fly Burgers", an episode that strayed very far from the original concept about "Modern Life", and was basically just the writers saying "let's throw in as many surreal plot lines as possible". For example, Rocko getting sued by con artist fly Flecko for fake injuries, and when deemed guilty, has to live the rest of his life as a fly. This gives us a rather odd usage of Rocko's catchphrase, "Fly Day is a very dangerous day."

* Events of the ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama Island'' episode "Camp Castaways" is never mentioned outside of the episode's recap, and the real twist is that there was no challenge in that episode.

** "Employee of the Month" Where Beast Boy gets a job at a fast food restaurant. But once inside, he discovers that the restaurant is both a facade and the place of origin of the [=UFOs=]: an alien conqueror made of living tofu, aka The Source, and his creations, the Bobs, are trying to catch as many cows as they can to provide power for their technology and blow up the Earth upon completion of the operation, just out of spite. Beast Boy interrogates the Source how he can defeat the Bobs and shut down the self destruction device, the tofu alien refuses to talk so Beast Boy threatened to eat him for lunch. After The Source was smothered with BBQ sauce, it confesses. With the information the Source has given him on their weakness, which just turns out to be water, Beast Boy is able to single-handedly defeat the Bobs. Then a whole herd of cows suddenly appears out of thin air around the other Titans (Robin asks "Can this day get any weirder?"). Then as Beast Boy explains to the others all the weird events that occurred, [[spoiler: Cyborg then gobbles up the Source.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012'' has the three-part season 5 (and, effectively, the series) finale, "Mutant Apocalypse". Essentially a ''Film/MadMax'' parody, it was set several decades in the future, had a very different tone from the rest of the series, included no established characters besides the turtles and their pets (except a brief appearance of Casey's ''skull''), didn't address April's fate at all, and tied up none of the dangling plot threads.

* The ''Literature/{{Mog}}'' book "Mog and the Granny" is kind of a normal ''Mog'' book: the title cat's owners visit America while she stays with Debbie and Nicky's granny. However, it has a subplot where Mog has PsychicPowers: she always knows where Debbie is. This ability has never been stated before or since.

* The ''WesternAnimation/{{Daria}}'' fanfic "Fanfic/GodSaveTheEsteem" is usually a bit DarkerAndEdgier than the series. However, it is one of the few canon rewrites to actually adapt "Depth Takes a Holiday" (see below), and [[LighterAndSofter plays up the nonsense even more]], with Jane nearly destroying Holiday Island with a PuffOfLogic and Daria BreakingTheFourthWall to address the reader at the end.
