Sometimes caused by BrieferThanTheyThink. See also: AlternateHistory, NotAllowedToGrowUp, & RetroUniverse. Not to be confused with TimeStandsStill. Also, this is not a ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' fanfic about time travel. Not to be confused with the 2014 CGI Christmas special of the same name.

* Franchise/SherlockHolmes, of course--originally set in the present day and treated as such until about World War II (with Basil Rathbone fighting Nazis in 1940); most later Holmes stories are set in the original time period, with the notable exception of the BBC's SettingUpdate ''Series/{{Sherlock}}''.

* In ''Manga/{{Cyborg 009}}'', Albert Heinrich/004's {{Backstory}} involves his attempt to cross the BerlinWall. In order to keep this in continuity in the 2001 series, the writers had the first four cyborgs created in the 1960s, then put into [[HumanPopsicle Suspended Animation]] for 40 years, at which point the project was continued and the rest of the team 'recruited'. Notable mainly since this was one of the few time sensitive plot points they went out of their way to keep.

* The characters, setting, and overall mood of ''[[Franchise/ArchieComics Archie]]'' is so tied to the idyllic image of TheFifties that, while new technology and new media pop up in the stories as they're written, the series cannot leave that decade's culture and visual style without a complete reworking from the ground up (which isn't without precedent, like with ''Series/{{Riverdale}}'') or as non-canon parody (like with ''ComicBook/ArchieVsPredator'').

** It started out [[http://oi67.tinypic.com/24zkaw2.jpg more]] [[http://oi67.tinypic.com/c6mty.jpg authentically]] TheFifties but by the time of the turn of the TheSixties, it seemed to be some weird amalgamation of TheSeventies and TheEighties (as far as many fashions and hairstyles are concerned). Case in point....[[http://oi66.tinypic.com/295btck.jpg Leather Tuscadero!]]....she was a cool character but a woman (in this case, Suzi Quatro) who's a proto-JoanJett with feathered late-70s hair should not exist in the late 1950s. Older, college-aged, romantic couple [[http://oi65.tinypic.com/13ykxs4.jpg Chachi and Joanie]] fell straight out of TheEighties. Even [[http://oi67.tinypic.com/anj3th.jpg little-kid Chachi]] in his debut looked out of place (in the real 50s, his hair would be very short, a buzz cut or full of pomade, not a cute, dry and feathered mop). There may be [[http://www.snopes.com/photos/supernatural/hipster.asp stuff]] in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HW-n6GWFAvI real life]] that look/sound ahead-of-it's-time but this is ridiculous.

* Averted in TheWonderYears. Although the series is often remembered as taking place in the 1960s, that's only true of the first two seasons. The rest of the series took place the in the 1970s, and there are references to contemporary events (such as Apollo 13) to prove it.

* A strange in-universe example with ''Literature/TheGirlFromTheMiraclesDistrict'' - the eponymous District is set in 1936, and is never allowed to ''leave'' 1936 even when the world around it has long galloped past the year 2000, because the magic that keeps it safe from the outside is explicitely tied to that year.

* A 2016 chapter of ''Manga/InsideMari'' shows that it still takes place in 2011, the year it began. Mari was born in 1995 but is still a high schooler. Only a few minutes have passed in-series.
