* ''TheRaccoons'' has a twist to the plot in the de facto GrandFinale where Cyril Sneer has a serious health episode due to overwork and his age and retires in favor of his son, Cedric. Eventually, Cyril still wants to help his son so badly that Cedric is forced to all but physically restrain him lest he kill himself with overexertion. Eventually, the episode ends with Father and Son compromising with Cyril partially coming out of retirement as a partner of Cedric who presumably will carry the bulk of the workload.

* An episode of ''Series/StarTrekTheAnimatedSeries'' features Robert April, who was the first captain of the ''Enterprise'' (NCC-1701), and his wife Sarah, who was the ship's first Chief Medical Officer. Commodore April, now a Federation ambassador, has reached the mandatory retirement age of 75, and is not happy about it. The Aprils are on board as passengers when ''Enterprise'' enters a parallel universe where people age backwards at an accelerated rate, and they save the ship by taking command after everyone else has regressed to childhood or infancy. In recognition of this, Federation officials agree to review his mandatory retirement and consider letting him continue to serve as ambassador.

* There's an episode of ''Series/{{Sliders}}'', where Creator/HowardStern's rhetoric has inspired the young to rise up and take the reigns of control away from the "old", implementing a national mandatory retirement cut-off at 30. This world is decidedly youth-centric, with the elderly (anyone over 30) being forced to live off what they have made before that, since social security is virtually nonexistent (that was one of Stern's main arguments). The episode's villain, who is approaching 30, decides to flee to Canada, where the mandatory retirement age is 40.
