* Was the focus in the final episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Fosters Home For Imaginary Friends}}''. When Mr. Herriman explains that Mac is moving, Bloo decides to give him the best day ever, though things do not go as he plans. Through the entire day, Mac does things with everyone but Bloo, making him angrier and more emotionally hurt after every disappointment. He also gets more pressured every time the clock announces the hour. However, to everyone's surprise and relief (and Mr. Herriman realizes he forgot to mention this), it turns out Mac is moving to an apartment just next door that was held by Louise's family. On a less happy tone for everyone at Foster's, Cheese ends up moving in because Louise's new home does not allow imaginary friends.

However, to everyone's surprise and relief (and Mr. Herriman realizes he forgot to mention this), it turns out Mac is that aren't moving to an a different city--they're just moving into a new apartment just next door that in their complex because Mac's mom got a work-promotion and they needed a bigger place. The new apartment they moved into was held right next-door to their original one, and had been occupied by Louise's family. Mac's neighbor, Louise (the creator of Cheese). On a less happy tone note for everyone at Foster's, Cheese ends up Louise and her family were moving in because Louise's new home does not allow into an apartment complex that has a strict "no imaginary friends.friends/pets" policy, which means that Cheese now has to live at Foster's.



* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/BobbysWorld'' has the Generic family packing up and moving... to the other side of their cul-de-sac. Bobby even asks "AreWeThereYet" right after they depart, which his father happily affirms.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'' had Angelica's family moving after her mom got a promotion at work. At first [[AndThereWasMuchRejoicing the babies are thrilled that Angelica won't be around to bully them anymore]] until Tommy mentions that it was because of Angelica's bullying that they all became friends in the first place. After a {{Whole Episode Flashback}} of their first meeting, the babies become saddened by Angelica leaving, including Angelica herself (who overheard the whole thing) and [[JerkWithAHeartofGold wishes she could've been nicer to them.]] The episode ends with Charlotte being passed over for the promotion, and the babies happy that Angelica won't be moving after all...much to Angelica's dismay.

* Tragically {{Averted}} in ''Manga/ChisSweetHome'', where [[spoiler: Blackie moves away and is PutOnABus for a while.]] Chi is understandably devastated, to the point where she goes through the FiveStagesOfGrief. This is also averted later on for Chi herself [[spoiler:twice]] for the sake of ''New Address'' [[spoiler:and the finale of the manga]].

* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'': In the ''Sun and Moon'' series (in which Ash is attending a Pokémon School in Alola), its 26th episode has Ash's classmate Sophocles find out that his family is moving; believing they're going to a different region entirely, he tells his friends, who prepare a big going-away party, complete with a special present for him - a wild Charjabug that Ash had trapped in a cage (allowing Sophocles to officially capture it himself). Then Sophocles finds out his family is just moving into a rental house down the street for a week while their existing house's roof is repaired, and after capturing Charjabug, tearfully confesses the truth to his friends, afraid they'll be upset at him for unintentionally misleading them. Luckily, they're very understanding and glad that he's not going away.

* The quote comes from ''Series/BoyMeetsWorld'' when Topanga's mom gets a job in Pittsburgh and she has to move there. Shawn is convinced she won't be going anywhere, having seen this plot on several TV shows. He's ultimately right, but only after Topanga actually does move away but hates it there and runs away back to Philadelphia after a few weeks.

->'''Shawn:''' I have seen this plot a thousand times and it always ends exactly the same. The girlfriend never moves away.\\
'''Cory:''' Shawn, this girlfriend's mom got a job in Pittsburgh.\\
'''Shawn:''' Yeah, yeah, yeah. I know, all packed up, enrolled in a new school, boo-hoo, tears, tears. Give me a challenge, okay? Topanga is not going anywhere.

* The dilemma of ''Nancy Clancy: Late-Breaking News'' revolves around Nancy overhearing a snippet of a conversation her teacher is having that causes her to believe that he's moving away, which she then tells to her best friend and ends up getting spread around to a good portion of her class. It transpires that he's not moving anywhere and was referring to something else entirely.
