* ''Series/OnceUponATime'': Ruby (Red Riding Hood's counterpart) suffers from this. She actually tried to leave town prior to the show, but the curse gave her grandmother a heart attack, forcing her to stay in Storybrooke.
** Also [[spoiler: Milah]] is often seen at the town's tavern and is bored of being a wife and a mother, so she [[spoiler: fakes being kidnapped by Captain Hook to run away with him and his crew]], abandoning her husband and young child. But when [[spoiler: Rumpelstiltskin]] finds out the deception, it does not end well for her.
* In an episode of ''TheGeorgeLopezShow,'' George is considering taking a new job and moving the family to a small town in Colorado. He believes that it will be a better place for the kids instead of L.A. However, when they go there to look around, they see that the kids that live there have ''literally'' nothing else to do but smoke, drink, and get into trouble (a little girl encourages Max to steal for little more than the fact it's a cheap thrill.)
* An episode of That70sShow has Hyde use this trope as an explanation for why the gang stole the drive-through sculpture of Fatso The Clown from Fatso Burger.

* [[UsefulNotes/Hawaii Hawaii]] residents may experience "Island Fever," which is basically this trope applied to whichever island they happen to live on, since there's only so much to do on any given island, and they may rarely (or never) have the opportunity to visit other islands or visit the mainland due to the relative expense of doing so and the high cost of living in Hawaii.

* In general, this trope can be subverted by people who actually ''enjoy'' the fact that small towns seem sleepy and boring. These people can find large, vibrant cities to be too loud, too suffocating, or what have you, and very much prefer the slower pace of life that occurs in smaller communities. What others would call boring and dull, they would call peace and quiet.
