In other words, the GrimReaper himself arranges a [[LongBusTrip (obviously long)]] [[PutOnABus bus trip]]. In these circumstances, don't expect the character to be PutOnABusToHell, [[DueToTheDead but rather an episode directly (and often respectfully) dealing with the death and deceased]].

* ''Series/ChicoAndTheMan'': Chico, although this was not stated until late in Season 4, more than a year after Freddie Prinze's death. Unlike the circumstances surrounding Prinze's death (suicide), Ed explains simply to Raul, [[SuspiciouslySimilarReplacement a character who had been brought in to replace Chico]] that Chico had died, leaving the cause unknown. Earlier Season 4 episodes stated that Chico was "away."

** When actor Will Lee, who played Mr. Hooper, passed away, the producers were faced with the usual options for dealing with loss on a kids' show: [[TheOtherDarrin cast a new actor]], or [[PutOnABus have the character simply leave the show]] (either with an explanation, such as he retired, or [[ChuckCunninghamSyndrome without]]). [[TakeAThirdOption Instead]], ''Sesame Street'' ran an episode where Big Bird understands that [[KilledOffForReal Mr. Hooper had died]], it was OK to miss him, and that even though life would never be quite the same when someone beloved dies, it will get better. In tribute to him, the portrait Big Bird was going to give him still hangs in his nest to this day, 30 years later.
** One documentary said that the "Mr. Hooper's not coming back" scene was the only scene in ''Sesame Street'' history done in a single take because the cast was too emotionally wrecked to do more takes. That the single take captured genuine emotion and showed that grown-ups, too, can feel sad and cry when people they love die, played a huge role in keeping the scene at one take.

* Due to the sudden death of actress Creator/CarrieFisher in late 2016, in ''Film/TheLastJedi'', Princess Leia's scenes will be posthumously inserted into the film, and her absence will be explained in ''Star Wars Episode IX''. Disney confirmed that Fisher had completed her work on ''The Last Jedi'' when news broke of her passing, and ''Episode IX'' is planned to be rewritten as a result (Leia would have played a big part in the film when Fisher passed away).

** Often erroneously applied to Sarah Jane Smith. Although ''Series/TheSarahJaneAdventures'' was cancelled due to the death of actress Elisabeth Sladen, to date there has been no on-screen indication that the character has also died, thus CharacterOutlivesActor more correctly applies.

Creator/RussellTDavies specifically rejected the idea of depicting the character's death in canon when an interviewer brought it up, and despite his history as a LyingCreator the franchise has kept to it.
