* ''Film/TheCongress'' is half animated, half live action with the animated sections representing a chemical induced hallucinatory world. Some of the animation is semi-realistic - the heroine Creator/RobinWright ([[AdamWesting playing herself]]) is mostly drawn in a naturalistic sort of style but most other people and especially the background events bring to mind some of the crazier animation of the 1930s mixed with ''Film/YellowSubmarine''.

* Technically, PaulRobertson's works are animations, not games, but they're all done in the style of video-game sprites. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FSdoDjcI5VE Kings of Power 4 Billion%]] is ''possibly'' the most deranged.

* ''I Married A Strange Person!''. BillPlympton makes incredibly surreal animation more often than not. He must have started his career after reading a book listing all the rules for animating the human face (chiefly, "don't distort or transform things too much or you'll end up in the UncannyValley"), then dedicated his life to ''breaking'' all those rules.

* The Italian music Video ''La Serenissima'' (also known as "Venice in Peril") was one of several music videos set to music by Rondo Veneziano and animator Guido Manuli. This is probably the most memorable due to it's being shown as an interstitial (often sporadically at OtakuOClock hours) in many Western television markets, where viewers generally had absolutely no clue as to the origins or plot, but were nonetheless drawn to the visuals. The animation depicts a giant spaceship of unexplained origin rescuing Venice from a watery grave. Also appearing is an animated version of the band depicted as faceless robots wearing baroque period clothing and playing classical instruments (which was a gimmick actually used by the Rondo Veneziano group in the early 80s, (predating DaftPunk by almost two decades). At the time, Rondo Veneziano was mostly unknown outside of Europe but their style may be familiar, classical music with a rock/disco beat. The dreamlike visuals, catchy tune (one of Rondo's most popular), and apparent [[NoPlotNoProblem lack of story/plot explanation]] all made it an experience that many remember, despite seeing it only once or twice. Until the Youtube era confirmed it's existence, many were convinced that this was from a dream.

* The Rockin' with Rory segment of ''Series/TheGreatSpaceCoaster'' television show had an animated music video of obscure origin that was ScienceFiction themed and unlike any other animation featured on the show, it had no humorous elements and it was highly detailed and realistic, not cartoony. It was set to a somewhat uncharacteristically somber song by the show's band about dreamscapes (not what the band usually sings about). It featured a giant spaceship with a lone robot occupant visitng a stormy oceanic planet. The planet had an ruined {{Atlantis}}-type island with creepy Romanesque statues and a musical orchestra of faceless robots playing classical instruments. The robot orchestra is beamed aboard the giant spaceship for whatever reason. Like most of the animated shorts appearing on this shoestring budget childrens' show, it couldn't have been made for the show. It was probably made for something else even more obscure (possibly some project that ended up in DevelopmentHell) but got bought by the show's producers as cheap filler. As far as what the story in the animated video was supposed to be is anybody's guess.
** I think I found it!! Is this it? It appears to be an Italian music video called "Le Serenissima."[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q6Vvja2kV_g]]

** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yer73i66uv0 flash video]] for {{IOSYS}}'s remixed remix of Reisen's {{leitmotif}}, ''It doesn't stop at the affected area, but goes deep inside and Aah Aaahn ~ The Final Udongein'', is a completely surreal, semi-nightmarish glimpse into what you might see if she used her madness-inducing Lunatic Eyes on you.

* [[https://youtu.be/xUZfW1W_CMM This version]] of ''Literature/AChristmasCarol'' was produced by animation god Chuck Jones and directed by Richard Williams. It is the only version of the story thus far to ever win an Oscar, and deservedly so as it perfectly captures the book's mood. It's barely ever shown on television however, thanks to its trippy and nightmarish imagery. (If the sight of the open-jawed Jacob Marley doesn't scare the piss out of you, the ''demons'' living under the robes of the Ghost of Christmas Present ''will''...)

** In ''[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS8E9ElViajeMisteriosoDeNuestroJomer El Viaje Misterioso De Nuestro Jomer]]'' Homer's hallucinatory DreamSequence due to the effects of eating chili and candle wax offers the animators many opportunities to show off surreal animation sequences. David Silverman insisted on animating this sequence in-house instead of normally outsourcing it to Korea to ensure it came out exactly how he wanted.

* Creator/{{Nickelodeon}} is known for this, and you can thank ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'' (before it came back from cancellation and introduced Tommy's little brother, Dil) and ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow'' for that.
* ''[[WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife Rocko's Modern Life]]'', if only because it's been compared to ''Ren and Stimpy'' (even though its animation isn't as deranged).

is the long acknowledged champion of this. One aspect that really makes it stand out is the ''delibrate'' usage of OffModel, where characters often completely change appearance every shot. Add in liberal usage of GrossUpCloseUp and generally FamilyUnfriendlyViolence, and you have a show that ran on NightmareFuel. It had a huge impact on Creator/{{Nickelodeon}} in general.
