* One episode of ''Series/Dinosaurs'' has Grandma Ethyl literally sitting around and watching the grass grow...[[ShowWithinAShow on television.]] Subverted in that it's not because she's enjoying it, but because the episode wants to emphasize she's wasting what's left of her life.

* In ''Series/GameOfThrones'', the idiot Orson Lannister and his pastime of squishing bugs.
** Daario and Grey Worm's contest of holding swords on outstretched arms qualifies, too.

** Marge actually gets thrills out of monotonous activities such as household chores and evening walks (of which she tends to prefer the dullest route). The family actually tend to find doing Marge's ideas of fun ''more'' unbearable than Homer or Bart's troublemaking.

** Lisa's idea of "fun" involves expanding her mind and her culture and [[SoapboxSadie standing for her beliefs]] (so we are talking NerdsLoveToughSchoolWork, going to museums, watching documentaries and going to protests, for example). Even ''Marge'' has a hard time stomaching this, occasionally.



* And of course, Ned Flanders has made his kids enjoy all sorts of lame things like sitting quietly during trips, clapping with songs and watching bread. They also showed a huge ammount of joy at having a Christmas with imaginary presents.

** From the same show, this is why Jerry keeps coming out or retirement and later gets a job in the National Parks service. The tedious grunt work like filing and stuffing envelopes that nobody else can stand is the part of the job he loves. In the last season he becomes a notary public as a hobby and is utterly giddy about it.

* In''TheTransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye'', the Scavengers have precisely three forms of entertainment on their ship: playing nerf gun battles (which is actually pretty awesome), watching recordings of former Decepticon-turned-stand-up-comic Skullcruncher's routines, and playing Jenga with a set that's missing pieces.

* In ''Comicbook/JudgeDredd'', the horribly overpopulated Mega-City-One has at worst 98% unemployment rate. Its people have found some utterly asinine ways to pass the time, such as pointlessly washing dishes, catching eggs launched at themselves, trying to grow the biggest nose in the city, or [[BigFatFuture eating]].

* Numbuh Four of ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'' loves getting buried up to his head at the beach. He even has a little song for it.

* Numbuh Four of ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'' loves getting buried up to his head at the beach. He even has a little song for it. And when his dad gets him a pool for the backyard, he ends up filling it with sand (the fact that the pool was a portal to a mirror universe and that Numbuh Four [[SuperDrowningSkills can't swim]] also helps).

* ''Series/TheGoldenGirls'': Dorothy just doesn't understand why her students don't find ''diagramming sentences'' as fun as she does. Sophia is quick to suggests that this is why she doesn't have many second dates.
