* One appears in the ''WesternAnimation/GIJoeARealAmericanHero'' two-part episode, "There's No Place Like Springfield." Shipwreck is on a mission when he gets knocked underwater and passes out. He awakens in a hospital bed seven years later, surrounded by his loving wife and their loving daughter, whom he has completely forgotten. They take him home and explain that Cobra had been defeated several years prior, but a recent fall off the roof caused him to lose his memory of those events. [[spoiler:The idyllic town is actually a Cobra training base, his family are Cobra agents, and they are trying to get Shipwreck to reveal a secret password he received before his accident.]]

* The title space station in ''Film/{{Elysium}}'' is this, only RecycledInSpaceRecycledInSpace.
* ''Film/GetOut'' combines this with some serious interracial tension. The only black people in the neighborhood where the main characters are visiting the girl's parents are either [[StepfordSmiler docile, brainwashed servants]] or have mysteriously gone missing.

Added DiffLines:

* In the ''Series/BlackMirror'' episode "Nosedive", the world in which Lacie lives is scarily perfect, with almost everyone under the same smiley, ratings-obsessed spell. Public outrages are seen as felonies, people buy coffee just to photograph, and you must disregard certain acts - such as being kind to service workers and colleagues - to keep those precious stars intact. There's even a ratings expert that Lacie visits who is similar to a psychiatrist or a counselor in the real world. [[SanitySlippage It's easy to see why she ends up snapping halfway through the episode.]]

* The Zaibatsu corporation owns an upscale suburb in ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoII'' called "The Village", apparently a shout out to ''Series/ThePrisoner''. It's a swanky community with pink cobblestone streets, art deco houses, and luxury cars roving the streets.

** The towns of Andale and Tranquility Lane[[spoiler:, the virtual world of Vault 112]]. Suffice to say, there are other factors that make them both even creepier than the standard Stepford Suburbia.
