* ''Fabulous'': It's Downplayed, but this SpinOff series is less down-to-earth and family-orientated than its predecessor ''VideoGame/{{Delicious}}''.

* The ''WesternAnimation/AlphaAndOmega'' series started off with the fairly serious first movie, which focused on the eponymous social standings within a pack of wolves. The DTV sequels where main characters Humphrey and Kate have had three pups, while still starting off fairly grounded in reality, gradually got less so until eventually, the movies carried increasingly odd and cartoonish plots revolving around slapstick, pop-culture references, ghosts, wolf real-estate, and even ''dinosaurs''.

* Taiwanese news outlet NMA got famous for doing relatively straight, 3D-animated re-enactions of events, such as Tiger Woods's car crash, the [=JetBlue=] flight attendant who opened up the emergency slide on the plane, and a cartoonish repesentation of the fight over TheTonightShow returning to Jay Leno. Nowadays, their videos are completely off-the-wall, have recurring gag characters such as a weed monster, two midget pilots named Sum Ting Wong and Wi Tu Lo (after an infamous incident where an intern gave fake, racist names to a news station regarding a fatal accident at San Francisco International Airport), and a mockery of Ark Music Factory's "Chinese Food". Compare [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fGfVB9kA5QQ this]] to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8oqrUPkW77k this.]] It was enough to make an intern infamously quit the company (with an equally silly method: an interpretative dance explaining why she left).

* ''Series/FamilyMatters'' starts out as a mundane sitcom, but succumbed to this trope as a result of Steve Urkel, who got initially got into plots with his suave, handsome, scientifically induced alter ego Stefan until the end of the series featured him traveling into [[RecycledINSPACE space]]. Steve Urkel being the harbinger of these changes was likely incidental, since an ExtravertedNerd does not require fantastic elements in order to function.
** The down to earth family sitcom ended with genetic engineering, cloning, and teleportation being regular elements of the plot.

** ''Series/KeyAndPeele'' examined this in a sketch called "Family Matters". Carl's actor Reginald [=VelJohnson=] (played by Peele) confronts an ABC executive (played by Key) about the changes in the show. At first the exec defends "Urkel-mania" as being good for the ratings, but in the middle of the shouting match, he abruptly shoots himself. It turns out that "Jaleel White" doesn't exist, Steve Urkel is real, and he's an evil telepath who has seized control of the show for his own purposes. The rest of the cast and crew are his terrified hostages for six more seasons.

* Compared to many other Disney films, especially the films preceding it, ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'' is a very comedic film, especially when Genie shows up. It's also this compared to the original Aladdin story.
* Though not to the extent of ''Aladdin'', Disney's ''Disney/{{Hercules}}'' is also a very comedic, [[BreatherEpisode lighthearted film compared to the other]] Disney Renaissance films, ''especially'' the very dark film that preceded it, Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame.

* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'' to the original ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans''. While the original show did have its silly moments and occasional wacky episodes, like the StuckInTVLand episode, it was a HalfArcSeason series that had downright dark and terrifying episodes to balance the lighthearted ones. The new show is purely comedic with even wackier situations and the characters have been redesigned into a simpler, more cartoonish style.

** The facial expressions had become this trope (emphasis on the word wackier, rather than denser) since the second half of season 9.2 started, especially "Company Picnic," "Sharks vs Pods" and "Food Con Castaways". This is because according to Vincent Waller on Twitter, he and the artists wanted to make the show [[OffModel cartoony]] again.

** The Since Lost in Bikini Bottom, the plots and facial expressions had become this trope (emphasis on the word wackier, rather than denser) denser, while trying to keep the show more constant in quality) since the second half of season 9.2 started, especially "Company Picnic," "Sharks vs Pods" "Patrick the Game" and "Food Con Castaways". This is because according to Vincent Waller on Twitter, he and the artists wanted to make the show [[OffModel cartoony]] again. Season 10 so far had been more Wackier and Denser than most of the entire show, especially Whirlybrains and Krusty Katering. It should be noted that this trope become more pronounced once Waller and Marc Ceccarelli became the supervising producers, even moreso when Ben Gruber joined the show.

* ''Blog/AskErnstStavroBlofeld'' compared to the original ''Film/JamesBond'' films. Even at their silliest, they come nowhere near this CharacterBlog's wackiness.

* ''WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse'' went for this after the previous DarkerAndEdgier sequels ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce'' and ''WesternAnimation/Ben10UltimateAlien'' ended up being {{Contested Sequel}}s. So far, this only ended up more divisive than before. Its successor ''WesternAnimation/Ben102017'' is similar to ''WesternAnimation/Ben10'' but divides it into two 15 minute shorts instead of a single 30 minute episode and has more of a focus on comedy than action.
