* In ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', the Cutie Mark Crusaders do this a lot. They tend to approach pretty much every new activity with endless enthusiasm and put a lot of effort into it, and then abandon it as soon as it becomes evident that it won't get them their cutie marks. Some of the things they've tried include zip-lining, journalism, musical performance, and hairstyling.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'': Pictured above, in "The Gi" a flash back to when Gumball and Darwin quickly got tired of football, tennis, horseback riding and figure skating (in the case of the last one, only Gumball got tired of it). For each one, we get a cumulative counter of how much money they've wasted starting these things and going nowhere with them.

hairstyling. [[spoiler: They finally ''do'' get their cutie marks in the season five episode "Crusaders of the Lost Mark", and their special talent turns out to be helping other ponies with ''their'' cutie marks.]]

* "WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents''Brings us Mr. Bickles. In every episode he has a new "dream". Examples include running a Seafood Restaurant, being a Vegas Magician, Being a playwright and being a lifeguard. These are the tip of the iceberg. With each new dream, he invests his time and money. He is usually already at work and gushing about how he finally accomplished it. A word of advice:[[BerserkButton Do not ruin Mr.Bickles' dream]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/FrontierCircus'': In "Calamity Circus", Tony is shown with a overwhelming desire to master other skills of clowning, and spends much of the episode learning how to be a clown. This is at odds with his personality in other episodes where he is happy being the advance man and shows no interest in actually performing.

** The episode ''Workin' Man Blues'' lampshades it when Brad runs into Wilson at the mall.
--> '''Wilson:''' I'm looking for a new hobby. I've narrowed it down to channeling Aztec spirits, or roller blading.

* According to Roy's mother in ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', this is his father Eugene's big problem; When discovers a new goal, he becomes utterly fixated on it...up until he gets bored and moves on to something else. Apparently, he has such a bad case of this that when he's actually compelled to see a project through, he'll get bitter and ornery. His desperation with Xykon is not because he particularly cares about avenging the Sorcerer's victims, but because he can't cross over until the lich is destroyed for good.

* ''TheBradyBunch'': Greg had sudden hobbies of surfing and photography. Justified in the case of surfing, as Barry Williams was an avid surfer in Real Life; it had just never come up during a plot before.

* 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.
