* In the early 1980s, ''Series/TheDukesOfHazzard'' had several coloring book adaptations. One of the books contained a story about the Duke family's new neighbors, who were never seen in the original series. [[note]]The Dukes tell a story to their new friends about how Bo and Luke once left a flustered Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane locked in an old barn, the aftermath of one of their cat-and-mouse chases.[[/note]]

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'' [[ParodiedTrope parodied this]] in episode 54, which introduced new characters [[AlphaBitch Pretty]] and [[BruiserWithASoftCenter Eugly]]. Stumpy looks at them in shock for a moment before turning to Kaeloo and asking who they are, and she tells him they're their neighbors, and is somewhat surprised he doesn't know.

Taken to its logical extreme in the Movie, in which Moe's Tavern is temporarily moved to be a standalone block for a joke about the churchgoers and barflies switching activity because of the dome's appearance. Later in the movie, we can see Moe's Tavern has returned to it's usual location by watching the background.

* ''Series/MidsomerMurders'' takes an entire county of small towns as its setting, but it's been running so long that this is a problem anyway.
** Justified, as nearly every episode has 3 or more deaths and without new neighbours, there would be hardly anyone left.

* ''Series/LittleHouseOnThePrairie'' did this a lot, most noticeable during the first season with students. An episode would center around a student who couldn't read or was disabled or whatever lesson of the week required. Every other child would know who they were and what their problem was, as if that student had always been there. Yet, we'd never seen them before and never saw them since.
** Averted in some early episodes when a few of the school children played by regular extras were slowly given the odd line, a name and once or twice worked into the plot directly for an episode.

* Arguably ''Franchise/TheSims'', in particularly ''VideoGame/TheSims2'' and ''[[VideoGame/TheSims3 3]]'' if you're following the stories of the Maxis/EA premade families.
** Can also happen quite literally with Story Progression, which sometimes will randomly generate families to movie into houses.

* ''{{Fillmore}}'' reuses the faces of previous episodes' characters, but they never speak or do anything of importance. Outside the safety patrol itself, no character features in more than one episode, [[RememberTheNewGuy even those who have a history with the regulars]].

* ''Series/EnemyAtTheDoor'' is set on the island of Guernsey during World War II. New islander characters are often introduced as acquaintances of the main characters, and sometimes implied to be close friends they're regularly in social contact with (as for instance the Prideux family in "The Polish Affaire"), but will nevertheless, with very few exceptions, appear for only one episode and never appear or be mentioned before or since.
