* On one episode of ''RockosModernLife'', Heffer and Rocko go on a road trip to see Phlegm Rock (a rock formation shaped like a runny nose, where the "mucus" is algae-ridden water spewing from a spring) before it closes and gets paved over.
* In an episode of ''{{Doug}}'', the Funnies are taking a road trip to see the Painted Gorge. They don't have any other plans, but end up doing stuff along the way.

* Played straight by Sam in ''Literature/LordOfTheRings''. He gets to see an oliphaunt, confirming the Hobbit rhyme is an appallingly realistic depiction of one.

* Played straight by Sam in ''Literature/LordOfTheRings''. He gets to see an oliphaunt, confirming the Hobbit rhyme is an appallingly realistic depiction of one. He also does this in a more metaphorical sense, initially joining Frodo because he wants to see Elves, who are almost mythical for Hobbits.

* ''SamuraiChamploo'' has the girl Fuu hire two Samurai, Mugen and Jin, to help her find the Sun Flower samurai. This Samurai in question does not show up until the last episode and the show regularly admits that he is nothing more than MacGuffin, with both Mugen and Jin regularly pestering Fuu about knowing nothing about the Sun Flower Samurai (except that he smells like sunflowers, but she doesn't even know what those smell like). [[spoiler:She has a good reason for keeping quiet about what she knows - the samurai is her father.]]

** Interestingly, Maggie Antrobus wants to see a whale before she dies in the same author's ''TheSkinOfOurTeeth''. The Barnum Museum really ''was'' a tremendously popular place in the mid- to late-1800s, and the whale was a notable exhibit.

Compare with TheHomewardJourney. Contrast with TheHomewardJourney. Also see RoadTripPlot, where the story is about the journey itself. No relation at all to the ElephantInTheLivingRoom, which everybody is pointedly trying to ignore. Also has nothing to do with [[INeedToGoIronMyDog going to see a man about a horse...]]
