** ''TinyToonAdventures'' created a Wackyland in Acme Acres. Then it threw in Gogo the Dodo for good measure. He and Wackyland seem no less weird than in Porky's day.

* Any and ''every'' community theater. Actors in particular can be the source of much weirdness. The techs, meanwhile, can either be [[OnlySaneMan rolling their eyes]] as [[OnlySaneEmployee they try to keep things under control]], or merely ''think'' they are, when in reality they're NotSoAboveItAll.

** [[SoapBoxSadie "Social justice" soapboxers]] often wander to StrawFeminist territory, inventing wacky new gender identities & pronouns.

* Tri-Ace loves this trope in their optional dungeons. Lots of Fourth Wall breaking abounds, from the developers readily acknowledging {{Retirony}} on an early character in ''ValkyrieProfileCovenantOfThePlume'', to the announcements from nowhere informing the characters that they're entering BonusDungeon territory (and from time to time, characters even noting that "[That enemy] was a lot tougher than in the main story!"), to absolute unbridled madness (such as kobold versions of main characters in ''VideoGame/ValkyrieProfile2Silmeria'', and the constant barrage of unending craziness from mostly everyone in ''Covenant'', ranging from [[spoiler: old characters discussing their advanced age in a JRPG, most of the female cast mercilessly mocking the main character and mistakenly getting the impression that he's done {{Squick}}-worthy things with a pair of underaged characters with their mother present in the conversation, Hrist challenging the party just because she's pissed over the fact that she hasn't gotten her own game yet, Freya challenging the party because the party's resident {{Jerkass}} mage told her that she's extremely beautiful yet wouldn't even consider getting into a relationship with her because of her undeniably advanced age despite her being a goddess and immortal, the resident CreepyTwins getting their own FourthWallMailSlot where they read letters from the programmers and harass TheHero for butting in and Gabriel and Ethereal Queen lamenting over the fact that Seraphic Gate is starting to show its age and slowly falling apart while trying to get their next role in a reality show starring Silmeria]] to enemies getting progressively weirder names, from tall armored warriors getting names like [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Unit 00]], vampires that are literally called Accepting Blood Donors and No Ketchup, Please, bug enemies getting names like [[Music/TheBeatles George and Ringo]], wolf enemies being called Dire (unfitting animal name here) and Gabriel himself getting an everchanging title on each playthrough, including Posessed, Obsessed, Depressed, Underdressed, Headdressed and Distressed and Wylfred's father getting increasingly stranger meanings for "father". When all the above is juxtapositioned with the main quest's extreme seriousness and [[YeOldeButcheredeEnglishe over-the-top Olde English]], it's even funnier.)

The unusual trope name is a translation of "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloud_cuckoo_land Nephelokokkygia]]" from Creator/{{Aristophanes}}' play ''Theatre/TheBirds''. However, Aristophanes' Cloudcuckooland was not actually an "odd place", but a fictional [[{{Utopia}} paradise state where everything is perfect]] -- and which, therefore, doesn't exist. Accordingly, a "[=Cloudcuckoolander=]" was someone demented or naive enough to believe in such an impossible place.

Added DiffLines:

* The animated version of ''The Adventures of the Wishing Chair'' by Enid Blyton features a land called Puzzle Village. The norm for everyone who lives there is to wear a bundle on your head for no apparent reason and never say anything that actually makes sense. Throughout the episode in which the village appears, Jigs might have disappeared, but it's Molly and Peter who are well and truly 'lost'.

* [[FrancoBelgianComics Franco Belgian Comic]] {{ComicBooks/Philemon}} largely takes place in "Le Monde des Lettres", literally "The World of Letters, a chain of mystical islands that form the letters for “Atlantique Ocean” on maps and globes, with rules and physics highly reminiscent of Alice in Wonderland.

* Yakestonia from ''{{Doug}}''. The traditional greeting is "Zwooba, Zwooba, Zwooba!" while making fart noises under your armpits. And Halloween follows Easter traditions...and Christmas follows Halloween traditions.
