* In the argentine series ''Poné a Francella'', the titular character of the "Enrique el Antiguo" skits is a young man that is completely monochromed [[FishOutOfTemporalWater and acts as if the 70s were present times]]. Everything else is in full colour. [[spoiler:In the final episode, he reveals he was purposefully acting that way to remind everyone of the happier past years, and once he stops doing that, he becomes fully coloured like everyone else. After a TimeSkip, he is revealed to have a son that was also monochromed and also acted as a FishOutOfTemporalWater]].
