* In a "Gnuff" story in the UsefulNotes/{{Furry|Fandom}} series ''Critters'', the main characters are stranded on an island divided by a steep mountain range where one side has water that makes you younger and the other has potatoes that make older. So, if you're living off the land on that island, you need to balance these foodstuffs to maintain your true age. Unfortunately, the one pass through the mountain range gets blocked and the characters on both sides realize that they are in terrible danger of eventually overbalancing on one of the materials and dying or disappearing as a result unless they can each get to the other side. [[note]]This story, done by Danish writer/artist Freddy Milton, has a long and strange background, and has no less than four versions going around with wildly different main characters. It was was originally made as a DonaldDuck story, but wasn't found worthy for publication, so Milton -- who had the right to the story but not the characters -- redrew it with his own CaptainErsatz characters who were geese instead of ducks. Later still, when drawing comics for the Scandinavian WoodyWoodpecker magazine, he redid and expanded the story with Woody and his niece and nephew Knothead and Splinter taking the roles of Donald and the boys. Finally, he redrew the story ''again'' as a "Gnuff" story, and this was the version that was published in ''Critters.'' You can find both the Donald Duck version ("The Big Sneeze") and the Gnuff version ("Gargantua's Cure") of the story in the "English Stuff" section of [[http://www.freddymilton.dk/ Milton's official homepage.[[/note]]
* One ''{{Popeye}}'' adventure involved a search for the Pool of Youth. While the pool doesn't actually make you physically younger, it extends your lifespan indefinitely, and gives you a younger mentality -- a man claimed to be over 200, but felt he was 6. The Pool was guarded by the Sea Hag's sister, and her army of cavemen.

When he laments that he hasn't even written his will yet, the Reaper accepts to give Colin three minutes so he can write the will, leaving an hourglass by his side that symbolizes how much time he has left.

However, things got out of hand, and a whole lot of magic got dumped on the clone bodies. Because the Earth universe has no magic, this meant that the four had to be transferred back to their original bodies in order to return home.

* In ''Series/{{Charmed}}'', one is being guarded by nymphs, but is really more of a HealingSpring. Another one shows up, and this one actually looks like a stone fountain. Irritatingly enough, Piper says "But that's just a myth!" when confronted with the second one, even after having come across the first one, possibly because she and her sisters had promised the nymphs from the first fountain that they would keep its existance existence a secret.



* In the ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' episode [[Recap/SupernaturalS10E012AboutABoy About a Boy]], Hansel goes around kidnapping people and rejuvenating them to young teens for Katja the witch to feed on, as actual children are too protected by the law for her to kidnap them without being found. [[spoiler:Dean and a woman named Tina end up falling victim to this, but while Dean managed to turn himself back before finishing the witch off, Tina didn't. However, that didn't bother her; Dean offered trying to find another way to return her to normal, but she opted to stay as a kid and get a second, better chance at life.]]

* In ''Webcomic/KevinAndKell'', the vulture family have a time machine where they sometimes travel to the past. But in some cases, if used right, it can affect someone's age.
** Dolly who is a clone of Corrie, begins to age faster than usual. A new identity is created for her and she gets a job as a cleaning lady for the vultures. While cleaning she accidentally activates the time machine and is turned into a baby where she remains still.
** In other strips the characters are briefy turned into babies for laughs, but these are probably not canon.

* ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'' example: retired U.S. Navy officer Sam Everheart was injured trying to save a HotScientist from bad guys. The 'hive' of nanites infected him and saved him.. by turning him into someone a lot younger. He now looks like his deceased 17-year-old daughter.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Unlimited'' episode "Kid Stuff", Morgan Le Fay's son Mordred gets his hands on a powerful amulet and, in a fit of pique after his mother insists he's too young to be responsible for it, banishes all the adults in the world to a pocket dimension. Morgan gets around this by turning some of the Justice Leaguers (Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, and Green Lantern) into 8-year-old children so they can get the amulet back. Eventually, Mordred is tricked into breaking the spell that keeps him a child, and he vanishes into the pocket dimension as per the rules of his earlier spell. [[spoiler: In the end, it turns out that breaking the spell meant he still had eternal life but without eternal youth, and was now thousands of years old and effectively immobile, basically a vegetable that his still-young mother will care for -- ''Forever.'' [[FateWorseThanDeath harsh]].]] Of course, one wonders if Morgan can't just cast it again... or just won't.

* The second to last episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'' (a.k.a. "Fountain of Youth") has Tommy, Chuckie, & Kimi think that the fountain of youth exists. They are happy until Angelica tells them that she will be in charge when its powers take effect on the adults & tricks them into thinking that the fountain in the lake has said powers. After several unsuccesful attempts at preventing the adults from going into the lake, they decide to drain the lake...[[spoiler: by pulling on a chain which might actually be attached to a boat which is far too heavy for them to move by even an inch.]]

** The Infanto Ray made some appearnces; one of them was episode 3, in which the victim was Borf. Another example is episode 6, where the Infanto Ray was just a round circle. However, it made its return in episode 11, in which Borf uses it on the vicims, and one of them was Kimberly, but after Dexter was brainwashed with the brainwashing device, Kimberly turned back into her adult form right after Dexter grabbed Kimberly while in the prison.

* Two episodes of the original ''[[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles]]'' dealt with this; in "Back To The Egg" it happened to Leonardo and Michaelangelo, and in "Adventures In Turtle Sitting" Leonardo, Raphael, and Donatello turned into children and the slacker of the group Michaelangelo had to look after them.

* ''IchinenseiNiNacchattara'' has this as part of its core concept, with main character Iori going from high school to elementary school, and getting [[GenderBender gender-bent]] in the process. However, he retains his original personality, and he's not happy about becoming an elementary school girl. Later on, [[spoiler: almost the entire town regresses into kids. This causes mass hysteria across the city, since the rejuvenation virus was rather contagious, but since Iori held the antibody, everyone was later returned to normal]].

* In episode 19 of ''[[Theatre/TheBlueBird Maeterlinck's Blue Bird: Tyltyl and Mytyl's Adventurous Journey]]'', the animated adaptation of ''Theatre/TheBlueBird'', the titular children and their pets are transformed into babies by the villain's powers. The spirits have to watch over them while Berylude turns herself into a young and powerful warrior to fight the villain and return them to normal.



* Happens briefly in an episode of ''LightNovel/MahouSensou'', where Kurumi's crying ends up turning her into a baby. However, this doesn't last lon, as she's back to normal the next scene we see her.



* In episode 16 of an old Sentai series called ''Series/KyodaiKenByclosser'', the villains use a weird gun to revert a couple of children (Yeah, children, strangely enough) to infancy, before turning them into old people with another gun. A young woman is also regressed into a baby. Obviously, all of them are eventually turned back to normal.

* In ''WebVideo/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsForAdults'' like in canon, Luna is reduced to taking the form of the child, after the Elements cleanse her of evil in the pilot.. Unlike canon, she is also left with ''[[LaserGuidedAmnesia amnesia]]'' and instead of being back to her adult form in her next appearance, she seems to be stuck like this and Celestia is left to take care of her now juvenile sister.
* The ''WesternAnimationMyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' abridge series ''WebVideo/UltraFastPony'' reveals that ''sexual reproduction itself'' has been rendered obsolete by the ability to just turn adults ponies back into babies if need be. Naturally, after three little fillies learn this, they immediately turn The Mane Six back into children for fun.
