Some artists willingly invoke [[TropesAreNotBad this trope]] and do not follow model sheets, such as ''[[WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow Ren and Stimpy's]]'' Creator/JohnKricfalusi. Following models too closely can lead to rigid and lifeless animation, whereas playing fast and loose with the designs can allow for better expression of emotion. This does not mean that such creators "draw badly", they still follow the basic rules of animation, and work to avoid animation errors.

** Similarly, in the Enterprise season finale "These Are The Voyages..." The premise is a plot point set in a TNG story arc, with Frakes and Sirtis reprising their roles as Riker and Troi. The problem is Troi's long lost her accent, and had her hair dyed red, and Riker has gotten more rotund, which is silly, and we're left to assume they changed so much for one plot point and then went back to normal in regular TNG.

* One very flashback-filled episode of {{Frasier}} ("Crock Tales") featured "young" Roz and Daphne wearing truly terrible wigs.

In American cartoons of the '80s and early '90s (and mid-'70s, to some extent), it became the norm to send animation overseas to studios in Japan, Korea, Taiwan, the Philippines, Australia and other countries to cut costs even further. The budget problems were thus exacerbated by language and cultural barriers, which resulted in nearly every cartoon of the era having animation errors of varying degrees. Japanese studios came to be seen by American studios as the "top of the line" of overseas studios because of their consistent aversion of this trope.[[note]]and even since the early 80's, Japan's been doing the ''exact'' same thing.[[/note]]

* Former Creator/{{ITV}} company Associated Television (ATV) was originally known in its earliest days (1955) as the Associated Broadcasting Company (ABC). The owner of the soon-to-be-established Associated British Corporation (also ABC) sued ATV for former ownership of the name (the company already ran a large chain of cinemas under those initials), requiring a change of name and a redesign of the logo. Said redesign was done in a hurry, which resulted in a logo that looked very off. Another redesign was done in 1958 to correct the mistake, but the mis-proportioned version was kept in the sign-on sequence until color broadcasting began in 1969.

* Many of the creatures in ''WalkingWithDinosaurs'' and its kin go through some drastic changes in appearance when the shot switches from a {{CGI}} animal to a puppet or an animatronic, or vice versa. Ones that stand out the most include the ''Postosuchus'' with its rubbery head; the freakish closeups of a ''Leaellynasaura'' puppet whose jaw slipped to the side; the ''Smilodon'' who seemingly can't open/close their mouth; and the ''Megaloceros'' that, upon dying, looks like it instantly became some huge stuffed animal toy. Then there's that insect that goes from being a CGI ant to a live cricket.
** Pure CGI goofs include the 3 year-old indricothere calf that still uses its newborn animation model, even though another, same-aged indricothere already looked like an adult; and though this could be intentional, the ''Allosaurus'' at the end of ''Walking with Monsters'' is at first represented by the one model from the 2001 TV adaptation of ''Literature/TheLostWorld'', then suddenly becomes a true ''Walking with...''-brand ''Allosaurus''. Freeze-framing reveals that the animals tend to get heavily distorted during particularly fast movements.

Anime fans from Japan have their [[MemeticMutation own phrase]] for this trope, "作画崩壊" (which literally translates to ''drawing collapse'').
