** Finally confirmed as true in an interview for ''Anime/PokemonIChooseYou''. Ash will eternally be 10 years old, making him [[NeverGrewUp another trope]].

* Creator/ShirleyTemple was treated like a very young child well into her teens, in that she was allowed to appear in adult roles only after her marriage at the age of seventeen. Shirley failed to gain any success as an adult actor, and discontinued acting completely after her divorce. She then spent the remainder of her adulthood working as an ambassador from the U.S. to Czechoslovakia.

Female child actors tend to suffer more than male child actors when it comes to this trope; girls usually hit puberty at a slightly younger age than boys, and concealing the secondary sexual characteristics can be ''very'' difficult, sometimes even impossible. Film studios used to object to child actors growing up; it was not until TheSeventies that they finally figured out how to manage a smooth upshift from adorable child star to TeenIdol.

* The plot of ''Series/DowntonAbbey'' spans over 13 years, but the characters don't seem to age nearly that much (it was only five years in RealLife). Daisy, the youngest main character, seems like a teenager throughout the series [[DawsonCasting despite the actress being 25-30]].

* ''Series/GreysAnatomy'' has this but with adults. The first season only had nine episodes, so the main characters still being interns in season 2 was justified. There is, however, no excuse for them to be interns for the entirety of season 3. Especially bad because their first year is established as starting on July 1st, and the second season ended with a Prom ([[FrozenInTime mid April at best, early June at worst]]). Seasons 4 and 5 cover their second year of residency, and from season 6 on each season covers about a year, aside from a TimeSkip in season 11. Averted with the children on the show, Bailey's son Tuck has progressed from an infant to a pre-teen over the years.

** In the episode ''Half-Decent Proposal'' in season thirteen, Marge and Lisa realise with shock that Homer has gone to work on the West Springfield oil rigs. Grandpa, walking in, says, "What? Homer bowled a 300 game?" (which happened in a season eleven episode called ''Hello Gutter, Hello Fadder''). Marge, annoyed, tells Grandpa that that happened a year and a half ago. Of course, in that year and a half, the Simpson kids haven't aged a day.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'' [[ZigZaggedTrope zig-zags]] this with the title twins, but oddly enough it seems to be at least partly [[JustifiedTrope justified]]. In season two, Dean says they are sixteen when Myra Brandish (who may or may not be reliable) claims they should be nineteen. By the middle of season four, despite getting high school diplomas from their learning beds, they are apparently not eighteen nor close to it. In season six, Dean is just starting college. Some justification may be that they've actually died several times and been replaced by clones. While this has only happened once that we know of during the show's run (allegedly fifteen times over their entire histories), it could have been more. Also some of the clones may be younger than others. And in any case, their father has been known to [[ParentalAbandonment wait a month or so]] before replacing them.

* ''WesternAnimaton/TheLoudHouse'': So far, there have been two episodes set on seperate April Fools' Days (''April Fools Rules'' and ''Fool's Paradise''), thus proving that at least a year has passed in-universe. Yet none of the characters appear any older, or are stated to have aged a year. Likewise, Clyde and Lincoln are still in the same class.
