* "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]].

* 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.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/AngryBeavers'' episode "Fancy Prance", it's revealed that Dagget has had literally dozens of "life-long dreams". While helping Norbert with ''his'' life-long dream of performing with the Lipizzaner performing horses, Dagget concocts a new one of being "the crusty-but-lovable manager of the guy pursuing his life-long dream".

* 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.
