* ''Series/DoctorWho'':
** [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E15PlanetOfTheDead "Planet of the Dead"]]: A red London bus in the middle of an endless desert. (It came through a wormhole.)
** [[Recap/DoctorWhoS36E7ThePyramidAtTheEndOfTheWorld "The Pyramid at the End of the World"]]: Courtesy of the antagonists, a USAF bomber and a Russian submarine sitting undamaged on the ground outside the titular pyramid, in the middle of Central Asia.
* The opening credits of ''Series/FatherTed'' show a stranded ship, some way inland, ostensibly somewhere on Craggy Island, with no clue as to how it got there. The real ship, the ''MV Plassey'', was washed ashore on Inisheer (off the West Coast) after a bit of what locals call "soft weather" in 1960... Indeed, it has moved again once or twice over the decades, when storms are heavy enough.

* ''VideoGame/MadMax'' is absolutely littered with these. The first half of the game takes place on the dried up ocean floor of the coast of Australia. Where the water has gone is never explained.

* In ''WesternAnimation/FatherAndDaughter'', a father apparently commits SuicideBySea, hugging his daughter goodbye and then rowing into the ocean in a rowboat, never to be seen again. Eventually the shallow sea coast is drained and made into a Dutch polder. Decades later, when the little girl is now an old woman, she walks out onto the polder and finds her father's rowboat, half-buried in sand.
