* ''VideoGame/Fallout4'': An unskippable moment shows you a closeup view of the Headquarters of the Brotherhood of Steel. It's quite small. It holds unlimited people and helicopters, depending on how you play the game.

* ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'': {{Zigzagged|Trope}}. [[DependingOnTheWriter The dimensions of Patrick's home tend to vary by the episode.]] Sometimes the boulder that makes up the "roof" of his home is on top of an entire pit, sometimes it just covers a inch deep crater. Either way Patrick fits a lot of stuff in there, and usually when he does so we don't get to see the inside.

* In ''MachinesWiredForWar'', units can be significantly too large to fit inside the building that created them and transport unit can carry units larger themselves inside them. This is partially justified by teleporting technology.

* In "Franchise/{{Superman}} & Franchise/{{Batman}} vs Franchise/{{Alien}}s & Franchise/{{Predator}}" Superman brings his fortress of solitude to a volcano to evacuate the Aliens and Predators who have been stranded there for thousands of years, along with the predator ship. On the outside the fortress is roughly 4 meters in diameter and spherical, but the inside is an entire dead universe he is free to decorate as he choose.

* In Jim Davis's ''ComicStrip/USAcres'' [[note]]later adapted as segments of the animated ''WesternAnimation/GarfieldAndFriends'' show[[/note]], one-off mentions of things like his TV show add up to make the inside of Sheldon's eggshell downright palatial. No wonder he doesn't want to fully hatch. His feet are also always sticking out of the bottom. That alone makes it probably the most unusual example on this page by a wide margin!
* ''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}'':
** Snoopy's doghouse is much larger than it seems. Sometimes implied (or even stated) to be an [[ElaborateUndergroundBase elaborate basement]], but whenever the (tiny) visible structure is destroyed, he behaves as if the entire house is gone. And, perversely, he chooses to sleep on ''top'' of the thing, even in the rain or cold!
** A few strips have Snoopy building a birdhouse for Woodstock, which turns out to be another (bird-sized) ClownCarBase.
* A recurring gag in ''ComicStrip/FunkyWinkerbean'' involved Funky doing things inside his locker that should have been impossible, like roasting hot dogs on a fire.

* Death's house in the Literature/{{Discworld}} series, from the outside it looks fairly normal, if a bit morbid, but inside... Death's study is reckoned to be about a mile square, and it apparently isn't the biggest room.
** This has as much to do with Death just not understanding physics as anything else. In the land his house occupies, the ominous mountains in the distance are actually fairly close to the house; they simply look far away because they're literally blurry, which is all Death really cares about.

* On ''Series/SesameStreet'', Oscar the Grouch has at least one elephant living in his trash can. And a swimming pool. And even Mr. Snuffleupagus himself once payed the grouch a visit - his snuffle was seen first coming out as he was leaving the trash can (and after ''five kids'' came out of it first!).



* A sketch on ''Series/{{Laugh-In}}'' had an absurdly large number of people getting out of a bathtub.
* ''Series/DoctorWho'' has the TARDIS, which is the trope namer for BiggerOnTheInside, but there have been numerous cases of areas mentioned but never seen. For example, it has a library, and a swimming pool (which once fell into the library when the TARDIS landed on its side), and even ''hallways'', many of which are apparently past incarnations of it that came with each regeneration.
** The swimming pool was also seen in the Fourth Doctor's era, when the Doctor and co are chased through the ship by Sontarans.

* ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'' episode 11. A vicar motions two gravediggers to get out of a grave they're digging. They do so, and then several others get out: 6 more gravediggers, two miners, two men in uniform (possibly escaping prisoners), a police dog and its handler, and a surfboarder. Watch it on Website/YouTube [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c0MC_4c-zbY#t=4m25s here]]. This could be called a ClownCarGrave but that name has already been used for [[{{Airplane}} another trope altogether]].

** TotalAnnihilation and SpiritualSuccessor ''VideoGame/SupremeCommander'' are notable aversions, you can actually see the units being produced in a properly-scaled building and they have to clear the production platform before the next one can start. It's especially notable with certain giant units: Total Annihilation's Krogath was so big it needed it's own specialized factory to produce, and Supreme Commander's "experimental" tire units are so big they're placed and constructed like buildings.
