* 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).

* 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.

* Ditto for ''TheTimeMachine''. This gives contemporary writers a good lead on the Time-Traveler, allowing him to pass through real time periods on his voyage to 802701 AD. Of course, a one hundred year lead isn't all that impressive when he's going 800,000 years into the future, but it's something. Both the 1960 film and the 2002 film give 1899 as the Time-Traveler's year of origin, which is actually four years after the novel was written. (The 1960 version goes so far as to make him take off from New Year's Eve of 1899, i.e. the last day of the 1800's.)

* Walden Media has tied the Earth sections of the Narnia film-verse to WorldWarII. The book ''The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe'' is set around the time of the bombing raids, but there it's just an excuse to place the characters where they need to be; the movie added the Luftwaffe bombing London to establish it, and it continues to be relevant throughout the film. While later books slip into ComicBookTime, the next two films take deliberate trouble to stay grounded in the period.

* Perhaps the most egregious example of FrozenInTime was ''Series/{{MASH}}'', which ran for 11 years when the actual Korean War lasted less than three (and on average most surgeons only served about six months at a MASH.) There were at least four Christmases and six winters shown, and Alan Alda went from young and raven haired to middle aged and greying.
