* Many [[TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation Golden Age cartoons]], not unlike the live action comedies they paralled, didn't even bother to have real stories, focusing more on collections of vignettes that set up gags relating to the shorts general theme. Since the bulk of them were comedies or animated music videos, [[TropesAreNotBad this usually worked out fine.]]

* ''Film/MarketaLazarova'' seems to have a plot, but it embraces AnachronicOrder to the extreme and adds a liberal amount of MindScrew to obscure it.

* ''SupermanAtEarthsEnd''. Go on, try to explain where any of this came from. What was the first apocalypse, who designed the biomechs, what's with the children, and the BrokenAesop (Guns are bad, after Superman clearly used guns to solve his problem.) was horrible. And it's part of UsefulNotes/TheDarkAgeOfComicBooks. The last one should be a turnoff for most people...

* ''Series/{{Lost}}'' ran on this trope when it was first starting out. Within just the first few episodes, it threw in magical healing powers, the walking dead, an inexplicable polar bear and some giant unseen monster, and each new episode just introduced new, unexplained weirdness. One of the first season's longer arcs involved characters unearthing a hatch and trying to open it. The writers admit having no idea what was inside at the time - they just thought it would be cool to include a hatch..

move Abbott & Costello to comedy
* Many [[Creator/AbbottAndCostello Abbot and Costello]] films could qualify. If you were to tear out every scene that has little or nothing to do with the plot, you'd wind up with about twenty minutes of film per movie. ** Note that, of course, TropesAreNotBad; many of these gratuitous scenes, while not being plot-relevant, are still ''funny''.

*** Game: Write down the opening scene/problem and the episode's resolution on separate cards, make a stack of each, then try to match one with the other. How did that Tomacco episode start out again?

** Another good example is the episode that ends up with the SVU detectives investigating an ANIMAL SMUGGLING RING. That episode also included a gratuitous shot of half-naked Benson and Stabler pawing each other to maintain Stabler's undercover persona.

Episode titles are listed in quote marks, not italics.
* Many of the episodes in the third season of ''Series/RobinHood'' are like this. Prime example is ''Let the Games Begin'', which involves the outlaws just running around the forest, chased by Prince John's "elite guards" who are defeated when giant fishing nets are thrown over them. Guy of Gisborne has a pet lion that he releases in order to kill the outlaws. The outlaws respond by throwing mustard powder at it. Meanwhile, Little John has been drafted into a rigged gladiator school. Guy's never-before-mentioned sister turns up, and Robin quite fancies her...then he finds out she's Gisborne's sister...then he insists to the outlaws that she's trustworthy...then he grabs her face, pushes her into a tree and steals her belongings, acting as though they've been in a lengthy relationship instead of having known her for about five minutes.
