* The premise of the ''[[WesternAnimation/ThePinkPanther Pink Panther]]'' cartoon "[[BeachEpisode Come On In! The Water's Pink]]", involves the eponymous character wowing the masses at a muscle beach with his various inflatable gadgets (such as an inflatable beach-house, inflatable trampolines, and even an inflatable swimming pool) and making a muscleman on the premises jealous. In the end, said muscleman mistakes a large dog for one of Pink's inflatable animals, resulting in the angry dog biting the muscleman and....[[spoiler: it's suddenly revealed that the muscleman was an inflatable object all along and he lands deflated in front of a confused Pink]]. Pink, at this point, leaves the beach and pulls up the beach sign as he passes by it, and [[spoiler: the ''entire scene'' deflates; revealing that the entire beach (and quite possibly the ''entire short'') [[TheEndingChangesEverything was just one of Pink's inflatable objects all along]].]]

* ''{{ComicBook/Crimson}}'' is a straightforward story that ends on a [[BittersweetEnding bitter-sweet note]] with TheHero [[ButNowIMustGo departing on a new quest]]. But then the final pages reveal that the hero's best friend Joe [[AndThatLittleGirlWasMe was telling the story to another friend in a bar]]. What makes it confusing is that said friend interrupts Joe because he doesn't buy his story is real or vampires, demons and monsters don't exist, despite the many catastrophic events that happened around the world beforehand that confirmed the existence of supernatural creatures, the fact that the Apocalypse nearly happened and that ''Joe himself is obviously a vampire!''. Or maybe not. Since Joe and his friend walks out of the bar during daytime with no serious effects. They even pass by a homeless man that looks like one of the main villains who seemingly died during the final battle, which Joe briefly pauses to comment on. These things make it unclear whether or not the series' events were made up or really happened.

* In ''VideoGame/LimboOfTheLost'', Briggs is captured and his earthly guide (also known as you, the player) must save him by completing some in and of themselves confusing tasks. After you finish, Briggs is freed and proceeds to the game's ending... where he is greeted by almost the entire supporting cast of the game who decide to crown him The King of Limbo ''while singing a song about him''. No explanation is given as to how the denizens of Limbo know each other, how they reached this location, or why Limbo has a king - or why no one seems to care about the player's contributions to any of this. To say that TheyJustDidntCare is an {{understatement}}.

** According to the makers of ''Series/StargateSG1'', the Creator/SciFiChannel never lets them know if they're renewed or canceled until it's too late to base the final episode around it. That's the reason every season finale of SG-1 blows the remaining special effects budget and generally wraps up the current plot - they don't know if it's the series finale or not.

* A Creator/SciFiChannel movie about a mission to UsefulNotes/{{Mars}} is notable for being shown mostly from camera angles. The crew has to undergo several hardships, including sabotage efforts by a CorruptCorporateExecutive but manage to successfully land on the red planet. Since the captain is suffering from a nanite infection (that's killing his nerve cells), his [[NumberTwo Number One]] makes the historic first step on another planet. All the world is watching as the camera she set up is zoomed on her face. She starts giving a speech, only to suddenly look somewhere off to the side and say "oh my God" with an astonished face, before the feed suddenly cuts out. The news anchors reporting on the mission say that a satellite in orbit is being repositioned to take a look at the landing site. The movie ends with a fly-by of the Martian landscape and a CliffHanger.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'' has had its fair share of Gainax Endings, but the ending of the legendary "Dexter and Computress Get Mandark" (already a BizarroEpisode if there ever was one, being written and narrated by a six-and-a-half year old boy and all) is ''really'' out there. Basically, Dexter and Computress's plan to "get" Mandark and shrink his head goes awry and results in Mandark's head continuously getting bigger until it outsizes the planet. The episode ends with Mandark's head, apropos of nothing, [[YourHeadAsplode exploding]], [[MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext which results in Earth being showered in millions of disembodied Mandark heads]] as Dexter yells at Computress.

* Music/TheBeatles' "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pJhcGepfG04 Ob-la-di, Ob-la-da]]," from ''Music/TheWhiteAlbum'', is about a market vendor named Desmond and a singer named Molly. They fall in love, get married, and have kids. The second-to-last stanza describes Desmond and his children working in the marketplace while Molly still enjoys her singing career. But the final stanza switches their roles, putting ''Molly'' in the marketplace and ''Desmond'' (who is now apparently a woman) in the band.

The band members weren't paying proper attention during the recording, and as a result Paul got distracted by John and George yelling "Arm!" and "Foot!" in the break after the first "lets the children lend a hand" and got their roles backwards on the last chorus. They decided to [[ThrowItIn keep it as-is]] because they thought it was neat (and they were sick of working on the song).
