* By the same token, the episode "A Third Dad Cartoon" from ''WesternAnimation/DextersLab'' uses a ''single'' camera angle, and consists entirely of Dad setting up a golf shot while the kids watch. Luckily, this was one of the shorts.

* The ''entire run'' of Series/MrsBrownsBoys takes place on just three sets, or two if you count Mrs Brown's kitchen and living room as a single set.

* Series/{{Heartbeat}} had one episode consisting of all the regular characters gathering to watch the Apollo 11 moon landing on TV. The entire episode took place on the regular sets, with the only outdoors "scene" being a single stock shot, and uniquely there was no period music on the soundtrack, just the show's standard cues.

* An episode of ''Radio/HancocksHalfHour'', 'The Bedsitter', was not only just set on the one set (Tony Hancock's bedsit flat) but also featured no other actors other than Tony Hancock himself. The plot, such as it was, just featured Hancock trying to amuse himself for 20 minutes. It was justly acclaimed as one of the funniest episodes he'd done. The aim of this one wasn't so much to save money (although that was no doubt a welcome side-effect for Creator/TheBBC) as to prove that Hancock could carry a show on his own.

*** "Mission to the Unknown", a sort of proto-Minisode, a PoorlyDisguisedPilot for a Dalek television series and a prequel to the later serial "The Daleks' Master Plan". It was written hastily when "Planet of Giants" was judged to be too long and edited down to three episodes rather than the planned four. It uses three sets (a human spaceship, the Dalek [[TheWarRoom War Room]] and a jungle) all built for and [[RecycledSet recycled]] in "The Daleks' Master Plan", a couple of [[PropRecycling Daleks]], a couple of [[PeopleInRubberSuits very low budget monster suits made of glue and fluff]] representing PlantAliens (which also get reused in "The Daleks's Master Plan"), a bunch of rather better-looking aliens on the Dalek ship (also reused in "The Daleks' Master Plan") and a spot of cheap {{Gorn}}. There is no Doctor, no companions, and the majority of the episode takes place with two actors arguing in the jungle.

* Episode four of ''KamichamaKarin'' has possibly the most OffModel art of the whole series, but the story was actually quite well-written.

* The majority of ''{{FanFic/Glass}}'' is just Seto, Pegasus, and a glass wall, with occasional looks into other characters and locations.

* The ''FanFic/CalvinAndHobbesTheSeries'' episode ''Roughin' It'', isn't technically a bottle episode, but it's designed like one. There are only two speaking roles (Calvin and Hobbes, and they spend most of their time just camping out in the woods. There's no action, no real plot, just a lot of ConversationalTroping.
