* ''Literature/LittleCritter'' has one in ''We are Moving''. He and Little Sister are both very upset, but it turns out that they're just moving a short distance away, to a home nearby their elementary school. This is one of the few that actually tries to hide that the move isn't a big deal.]

If the show is a comedy or generally of a comedic bent, then expect the situation to be played for great giggles, generally at the expense of the character who believes that someone is moving away. If the show is generally of a more serious nature, however, then the show may aim to tug at the viewers' heartstrings, even though this plotline is typically a form of DramaticIrony, as the viewers are usually fully aware that the character in question is not, in fact, moving away.

* In "This is Your Life, Bear" from ''Series/BearInTheBigBlueHouse'', the kids believe that Bear is moving away from the Big Blue House when actually he's just won a vacation. They're actually right on a meta-level, though, in that the episode is the show's series finale.

* 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.
