** In the episode "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E13SimpleWays Simple Ways]]", famous travel writer Trenderhoof, on whom Rarity has a crush, comes to town to see the "small town chic", but [[LoveTriangle becomes enamoured with Applejack]] and her rustic lifestyle (or, rather, with his own image of what rustic lifestyle is like), while [[AllLoveIsUnrequited Applejack sees him as a nuisance]]. Near the end of the episode Rarity, who has been preparing the Ponyville Days Festival and trying to show Trenderhoof that she is rustic too, finally decides to change the theme of the festival shortly before it's due to "[[TitleDrop Simple Ways]]", a ridiculous caricature of the rustic lifestyle, in a drastic attempt to win over his affection. Fortunately, Applejack sets her straight, both Rarity and Trenderhoof acknowledge their mistakes, and Rarity manages, through a lot of effort, to pull off the festival using its original small town theme.

* ''Film/HorseSense'' has Michael, a rich LA preppy college student, being forced by his parents to spend his summer helping out on a farm his aunt owns in Montana. He quickly learns that being a farmhand is very different from his normal carefree lifestyle. It doesn't help that his 11-year-old cousin deliberately sabotages his work (by not giving enough instructions) in order to make it even harder, as revenge for neglecting him, when the cousin visited LA earlier. Later on, though, Michael learns to appreciate the farming life and has trouble fitting in back in LA. He ends up helping his aunt save her farm from foreclosure and offers to stay on a bit longer.

* The basic premise of the early ''Franchise/HarvestMoon'' games involve a big city boy/girl who just moved to a rural town to inherit a rundown farm whose owner had recently passed away. The goal of the game is to settle down in said farm and try to restore it to its former glory, although some versions allow the player to refuse the farm offer, which would immediately lead to a game over.

Plot B2: Alice ''used'' to be a Country Mouse but moved to the big city and has now become a City Mouse with a glamorous life and career, and is usually embarrassed by her humble origins. Then she's forced to go back home for some reason, either temporarily or permanently depending on the story. Similar to Plot B, although there will usually be a rekindled forgotten ChildhoodFriendRomance as well.

BlitzEvacuees is often a very specific form of plot B (and one of the few kinds where the city-loving characters in the country might end up going back -- after the war is over, of course). Compare {{Arcadia}}.

{{Arcadia}}. There's a strong tie to NewMediaAreEvil too, the city representing new media in this case.

* Done realistically in ''WesternAnimation/InsideOut''. Riley and her family have to move from Minnesota to San Francisco and part of Riley's growing depression is her missing things from home. But the things she misses are not tied directly to the country - namely her friends and certain activities she did - and the city people aren't portrayed nastily at all. Her character development comes with readjusting to the new environment.
