* In each episode of ''ThePretender'', Jarod would engage in fleeting obsessions with an episode-relevant skill and/or some childhood item previously denied him at The Centre, taking the time to learn everything he possibly can about it. This goes along with his talent of being able to become anyone he wants to, meaning he's a very very quick study.

* Arthur Spooner in ''Series/KingOfQueens'' is an elderly ManChild on the outer edge of senility who drives [[TheDutifulSon daughter Carrie Heffernan]] to despair with a series of unreasonable demands. A psychologist unwisely advocates giving him what he wants as a sort of aversion therapy, in the hope that the continual demanding will burn itself out. Arthur then ploughs through a dozen or so expensive hobbies in the space of a month, beginning each in a state of high enthusiasm that inevitably burns itself out when the novelty is gone.
