* Subverted to a large degree on the TheSimpsons, where, during the course of its very long run, almost every mentioned character is eventually seen in some form, including parents of minor characters, bosses of companies, low-level employees, even ridiculous characters originally intended simply as one-off verbal jokes. The only exceptions tend to be characters who exist as stereotypes of the standard unseen television character, such as Gil's wife, who berates him over the phone in a cliched sort of way.

* In ''Series/{{Frasier}}'', Vera (a ghost character in ''Series/{{Cheers}}'') was reincarnated in Niles's wife Maris. She wasn't originally meant to be a ghost, but by the time they would otherwise have showed her the makers of the show realized that they'd built up such an inhuman woman with their imagery that no actress could play her. You ''do'' see a silhouette in one episode and (in a flashback) a bandage-covered woman in another.

She wasn't originally meant to be a ghost, but by as the time they would otherwise have showed her series when on, the makers of the show show's creators realized that they'd built up such an inhuman woman with their imagery that her off-screen descriptions had gotten extreme to the point where no actress could play her. You ''do'' see a (very hazy) silhouette in one episode and (in a flashback) a her bandage-covered woman face in another.



** Another '' Frasier'' example is Duke, Martin's old work buddy.

** Howland Reed, in-universe as well as out. House Reed's seat, Greywater Watch, is constantly moving because it is built on a floating island, and has never been found by anyone not led by a Crannogman guide. The Crannogmen, while exceptionally loyal to the Starks, are mercurial and reclusive by nature, and all live on floating islands similar to the one Greywater Watch lies on, making them nearly impossible to find if they don't want to be found. And, because passing between the south and North requires knowledge of the floating islands or the Crannogmen's own secret routes, they have proven extremely difficult to conquer and strategically essential. And of course as he's the only one who witnessed what happened at the Tower of Joy (Lyanna Stark's death, Ned's promise to her) and still living, it's obvious that we won't see him at least till the last seasons. The third episode of Season 6 is our first cross-media glimpse of him.
