* 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.

* ''{{Theatre/Pygmalion}}'' was set in ThePresentDay when it debuted in 1913 and was still regarded as such when the 1938 film version came out. By the time of the 1956 musical version, ''Theatre/MyFairLady'', the story was treated as an Edwardian period piece and has been ever since.

** In Comicbook/XMen, {{Magneto}}'s backstory is irrevocably wedded to the Holocaust. Hence, he keeps getting older (albeit with periodic de-aging due to AppliedPhlebotinum or similar plot devices) as his flashbacks feature him younger.

* ''{{Tarzan}}'' was originally set in the present day and was treated as such until about the 1980s. Around that time, the character started to get tied to TheEdwardianEra in which he first appeared, something which may have been started by ''Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan''. The [[{{Disney/Tarzan}} Disney version]] goes back further and sets itself in the time of VictorianBritain, which has pretty much codified in the public imagination that the story doesn't take place in the present.

* Oddly enough, ''HappyDays'' was not FrozenInTime -- by the end of the series they had actually made it into the early 1960s, as had its spinoff, ''LaverneAndShirley''.
