* WesternAnimation/ThomasTheTankEngine became this after Series 7, sadly for some veteran fans.

* WesternAnimation/ThomasTheTankEngine became this after Series Season 7, [[JumpingTheShark sadly for some veteran fans.]] The first 7 seasons while still edutainment, kept the learning parts to a moral that the viewers learn at the end of an episode.

* WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}} - This program also [[LampshadeHanging Lampshades]] this trope with an in-universe example. Buster claims that a program that he's making is going to be "edutainment." The characters respond to this with an "ew." The chapter-book adaptation of that episode goes even further, with Brain stating that edutainment is supposed to be a blend of education and entertainment, but often ends up being the worst of both.

* Series/DoctorWho: As odd as it seems in retrospect, this show started out as edutainment. The show was originally meant to alternate between stories set in the past that would teach kids history, and those set in the future, or on other planets, that would teach science (hence the first two companions being a history teacher and a science teacher). Then the Daleks showed up, became massively popular, and changed the emphasis of the show to scary monsters rather than education.

* ''Anime/{{Doraemon}}'' sometimes teaches viewers about things such as global warming, how to help homeless animals, the flat Earth theory and the history of Japan. Unfortunately, most of the educational bits are thrown away in the BangZoomEntertainment dub, but sometimes you'll get an explanation of a fairy tale not known by Americans such as "The Honest Woodcutter" or an episode set in a historical time period.
