* Averted in ''Manga/{{ARIA}}'', where Akari mentions the changing of the seasons in her letters, which is reflected in the art for the episode. The manga volumes are actually seasonally themed, with the first being fall, the second being winter, the third being spring, and so on. That 2-3 years pass and nobody seems to get any older is not mentioned.
** Note: 2-3 ''Mars'' years, which means roughly 4-6 Earth years.

* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'': The first season begins in fall and changes to winter (as an important plot device, in the two-part "Winter Solstice" episodes), the second is spring, and the third is Fire Nation (volcanic near-equatorial archipelago) summer.
** Despite this, in the original series the only time it ever ''appears'' to be a certain season is in its respective nation. It only snows in the poles and the characters only dress for summer in the always temperate fire nation. Justified due to being an explicitly alternate universe with it's own geographical seasonal norms. Averted in the sequel series where Republic City shifts from fall to winter over the course of the first season.

* In ''VideoGame/TheSims3'', with Seasons, you can invoke this by turning off all seasons except for spring, as well as turning off all weather/precipitation. There will also be only Love Day (the InUniverse equivalent of Valentine's Day), and the Spring Festival will also be the only festoval occurring.

* UsefulNotes/Australia essentially ''never'' drops below zero degrees Celsius (32 Fahrenheit) even in the dead of winter; snow only falls on the very tops of mountains. Like Floridians mentioned above, 15 degrees Celsius (59 Fahrenheit) is considered a bit cold. Native Englishman [[WebOriginal/ZeroPunctuation Yahtzee]] lampshaded this in one review: "It's Australian winter, which means perfect surfing weather".

** Considering active and direct control of the weather, it's not unreasonable that an agricultural area like Ponyville might be clear and sunny most of the time with scheduled rainfall on the farms not affecting the town as often.



* Averted in ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse''. While the first half of the first season makes it seem like a case of perpetual summer, other seasons start passing through once the show gains explicit continuity between episodes.

* Averted in ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse''. While the first half of the first season makes it seem like a case of perpetual summer, other seasons start passing through once the show gains explicit continuity between episodes. However, events do seem very disproportionately focused in the warm seasons: In the show's first in-universe year, it appears to be warm in one episode, cool or snowy for the next three, and then it's spring by the episode after that. By contrast, the ''entire'' third season and some of the fourth take place between the first autumn leaves and the end of summer break. So it's not ''always'' spring, [[DownplayedTrope but it is when most of the important things happen]].

* ''Franchise/HarvestMoon'' games have rotating seasons. The crops you can plant and things you can gather change with them.
** Some games have areas where it is always a certain season, however. The ''Rune Factory'' spinoff series has such areas, for example.

Outside of animation, this is a consequence of SoCalization. In Southern California, where most production takes place, the weather really is spring-like most of the year. It also occurs with shows and movies filmed in Louisiana or Georgia, two states in the American South that offer generous tax credits for filmmakers and have very warm climates; temperatures below 60 degrees Fahrenheit (or, God forbid, ''50'' degrees) are genuinely considered freezing.

freezing. Along with the fact that many productions would rather film as much of a show or movie at the same time as possible, rather than wait for seasons to change.
