* ''Series/TheLastKingdom'' had a particularly odd one in the middle of season two, which meant that Æthelflæd somehow remained a teenager for 12 years. Nobody else aged visibly either, but Æthelflæd was specifically stated to have come of age and be ready for marriage shortly before the jump, and then finally got to her wedding 12 years later.

** The series has undergone a two-and-a-half year timeskip during which most of the main cast got a whole lot stronger. Notably, the former rookies are taking major roles in the battles against the {{Big Bad}}s, where in the previous volumes/series they mostly fought each other and left the major fighting to the adults. The post-timeskip chapters in the manga are simply called "Naruto: Part II", but in the anime it's technically a different series titled ''Naruto: Shippuden''.
** ''Anime/TheLastNarutoTheMovie'' takes place 2 years after the end of the war and shows how [[spoiler: Naruto and Hinata]] got together. [[spoiler: The last chapter of the manga takes place around 10 years after this.]]

** There's a jump of at least 50-70 years between [[Recap/DoctorWho2016CSTheReturnOfDoctorMysterio "The Return of Doctor Mysterio"]] and [[Recap/DoctorWhoS36E1ThePilot "The Pilot"]], as it's stated that the Doctor has been teaching at the university for at least fifty years by then. There's also a number of jumps during the events of "The Pilot", as it takes place over the span of most of one academic year at the university, starting in the fall and ending in the spring.

** A time skip involving Clara Oswald is also made evident; when she joins the Doctor in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS33E6TheBellsOfSaintJohn "The Bells of Saint John"]] (broadcast in March 2013), Clara is said to be 24 years old, and working as a nanny, a job she continues to hold until the season finale, [[Recap/DoctorWhoS33E13TheNameOfTheDoctor "The Name of the Doctor"]] (broadcast in May 2013). By the time of the very next episode, [[Recap/DoctorWho50thASTheDayOfTheDoctor "The Day of the Doctor"]] (broadcast in November 2013), some time has clearly passed as she is now an established schoolteacher, acting more mature, and with her nanny days behind her. The very next episode, [[Recap/DoctorWho2013CSTheTimeOfTheDoctor "The Time of the Doctor"]], leads directly into the episode [[Recap/DoctorWhoS34E1DeepBreath "Deep Breath"]] in which it is established that she is now 27 years old.

** Off-screen due to time travel - in 2011's "The Impossible Astronaut" the Eleventh Doctor claims to be 1,103, even though Amy points out that two months earlier he was 908. Oddly plausible because of [[spoiler:the time he apparently spent solo after bringing Amy and Rory home in "The God Complex"]], but complicated in that [[spoiler:this was a future Doctor pulling a ruse to stage his own death with the ''Teselecta'']], and producer Creator/StevenMoffat's [[WordOfGod claim]] that The Doctor can't even keep track of his age anymore.
** There is then a three-month one between "The Impossible Astronaut" and the following episode, "Day of the Moon", while Amy, Rory, and River find out the extent of the Silence.
** By "A Town Called Mercy", he's apparently jumped to 1200, again plausible since he's just dropping in on Amy and Rory at this point.
** There are two definite time skips within the 16-year hiatus: one between 1989's "Survival" and the 1996 TV Movie (Ace has gone, the Seventh Doctor has visibly aged, and the TARDIS interior has been remodelled), and one between the movie and 2005's "Rose" (the Time War, which, according to 2013's "The Day of the Doctor", [[spoiler:involved an entire incarnation, who died of old age]]).
** ImpliedTrope in the classic series: the Doctor's claimed age generally keeps increasing, from 450 in his second incarnation to 953 in his seventh, with the latter getting external verification. That his age apparently dropped by the new series is one reason he's seen as unreliable. A few places where they are generally considered to lie - although it should be noted that some are very heavily implied in the show itself and others are just easily {{Fan Wank}}ed into being:
*** "Season 6B", a series of hypothetical adventures following the Second Doctor over a series of hundreds of years, made possible by [[CharacterAgedWithTheActor how much older he is]] and that he's travelling with an older Jamie when he appears in "The Two Doctors" et al.

*** Between "Shada"[[note]]which was never aired, so the start point is "The Horns of Nimon" if only going by aired episodes[[/note]] and "The Leisure Hive", between which the Doctor appears noticeably older, drastically changes his style of dress, has suddenly started affecting a more mature and brooding personality, and goes from holidaying to seeking out a new holiday as he hasn't been on one in ages.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'' sequel series ''WesternAnimation/AllGrownUp'' follows the baby characters from the first series after a ten-year time skip. This was launched by an unintentional PoorlyDisguisedPilot; a tenth-anniversary special that showed what it might be like if ''Rugrats'' hadn't been FrozenInTime the length of its run. In an interview at the time of the supposedly PoorlyDisguisedPilot, the producers of Rugrats said that they weren't sure if it would become a series, because they were currently looking at other spin off series. The original plan was to do a show about Angelica and Suzie in preschool, which would have necessitated a timeskip as well, but a much smaller one. The ratings for the special were so good, though, that Nick decided they wanted a spinoff based on it instead. The preschool show was made too, but only four episodes were made before it was canceled.

The series also takes place in the Franchise/TransformersAlignedUniverse, with the first three seasons being concurrent with ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'' and the fourth being concurrent with ''WesternAnimation/TransformersRobotsInDisguise2015'', a fact reflected by [[spoiler: Bumblebee going from talking with the beeps he did through most of ''Prime'' and his ''Rescue Bots'' appearances in the first two seasons, to being voiced by Creator/WillFriedle, as in the final four episodes of ''Prime'' and ''[=RiD=]''.

* ''WesternAnimation/BewareTheBatman'' has a six-month

* Two years pass between the second ''WesternAnimation/ChalkZone'' short on ''WesternAnimation/OhYeahCartoons'' ("The Amazin' River", which would later be edited into the series
episode "French Fry Falls"), which was the last one it skips to air during the show's first season in 1998, and the third short ("Rudy's Date") which began the next season of ''Oh Yeah! Cartoons''. [[ExecutiveMeddling This was brought upon by Nickelodeon]]; when production began on the shorts for the second season, Nick was interested into giving it its' own show. However, they requested that Rudy had to be a little older (he was eight at first and ten after the time skip).
Christmas.
* Inverted with ''WesternAnimation/WackyRaces'' spinoffs ''WesternAnimation/DastardlyAndMuttleyInTheirFlyingMachines'' and ''WesternAnimation/ThePerilsOfPenelopePitstop.'' ''Races'' took place during the time of its production, 1968, while the spinoffs are set decades earlier. Then again, Dick Dastardly and Muttley would reappear in their Vulture Squadron attire in 1985's ''WesternAnimation/YogisTreasureHunt''.
*
''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'': The tenth episode of the third season of ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' jumps about 1-2 years ahead, to give the impression of the Clone Wars dragging out endlessly and provide an opportunity for new models and wardrobes for the main characters. Anakin acquires the [[GoodScarsEvilScars scar over his right eye]] at some point in the intervening time, for example, and Ahsoka builds a second lightsaber and takes up DualWielding. The series also settles into a less AnachronicOrder after this point.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'' SequelSeries ''WesternAnimation/AllGrownUp'' follows the baby characters from the first series after a ten-year time skip. This was launched by an unintentional PoorlyDisguisedPilot; a tenth-anniversary special that showed what it might be like if ''Rugrats'' hadn't been FrozenInTime the length of its run. In an interview at the time of the supposedly PoorlyDisguisedPilot, the producers of Rugrats said that they weren't sure if it would become a series, because they were currently looking at other spin off series. The original plan was to do a show about Angelica and Suzie in preschool, which would have necessitated a timeskip as well, but a much smaller one. The ratings for the special were so good, though, that Nick decided they wanted a spinoff based on it instead. The preschool show was made too, but only four episodes were made before it was canceled.


Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretSaturdays'' has this to start off the third season. Six months have passed and in that time: [[spoiler:the Saturdays have become fugitives, with the Secret Scientists wanting to freeze Zak for eternity and the world blaming them for Argost's disappearance.]] Other things include Van Rook becoming broke and homeless, Zak's powers going haywire, and Doyle becoming a Franchise/JamesBond-like spy for the Saturday family.
* ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'': There's a one-year timeskip ten episodes into season 3, to give the impression of the Clone Wars dragging out endlessly and provide an opportunity for new models and wardrobes for the main characters. Anakin acquires the [[GoodScarsEvilScars scar over his right eye]] at some point in the intervening time, for example, and Ahsoka builds a second lightsaber and takes up DualWielding. The series also settles into a less AnachronicOrder after this point.
* ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels'': The series regularly has brief timeskips of between a few weeks and a few months between episodes.
** The last scene of [[Recap/StarWarsRebelsS1E08PathOfTheJedi "Path of the Jedi"]] takes place several weeks after the rest of the episode.
** The series' longest timeskip yet takes place between season 2 finale [[Recap/StarWarsRebelsS2E19TwilightOfTheApprentice "Twilight of]] [[Recap/StarWarsRebelsS2E20TwilightOfTheApprenticePartII the Apprentice"]] and season 3 premiere [[Recap/StarWarsRebelsStepsIntoShadow "Steps Into Shadow"]], at six months. And the characters have changed significantly over that time, partly in reaction to what happened at the end of season 2.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Superjail}}'': There is a timeskip between the second season finale and the season three premiere.
* ''[[WesternAnimation/TotalDrama Total Drama Action]]'' had a time skip from the finale, to the later special and the third season. It's not known exactly how long, although a year is probably the best guess (enough time for about half of Heather's hair to grow back, and most of them to try to grasp fame and fail at it).
* ''WesternAnimation/TheTransformers'' skipped about 20 years (from then present 1985 to [[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture 2005]]) between the last episode of the second season and TheMovie, during which Cybertron fell to the Decepticons and two of the four biggest Transformers ever were built. There is also a timeskip in the Japanese animated continuity - there is a one year gap between the end of ''Transformers 2010'' (American season 3) and ''[[Anime/TransformersHeadmasters The Headmasters]]''.
* ''WesternAnimation/TransformersRescueBots'' sees Season 4 skip a few years after the first three seasons, reflected by Cody and Frankie being teenagers and the latter getting a baby sister. The series also takes place in the Franchise/TransformersAlignedUniverse, with the first three seasons being concurrent with ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'' and the fourth being concurrent with ''WesternAnimation/TransformersRobotsInDisguise2015'', a fact reflected by [[spoiler: Bumblebee going from talking with the beeps he did through most of ''Prime'' and his ''Rescue Bots'' appearances in the first two seasons, to being voiced by Creator/WillFriedle, as in the final four episodes of ''Prime'' and ''[=RiD=]''. Sideswipe from ''[=RiD=]'' also appears.]]
* Inverted with ''WesternAnimation/WackyRaces'' spinoffs ''WesternAnimation/DastardlyAndMuttleyInTheirFlyingMachines'' and ''WesternAnimation/ThePerilsOfPenelopePitstop.'' ''Races'' took place during the time of its production, 1968, while the spinoffs are set decades earlier. Then again, Dick Dastardly and Muttley would reappear in their Vulture Squadron attire in 1985's ''WesternAnimation/YogisTreasureHunt''.
* The second season of ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'' takes place five years after the first one. This was [[WhamEpisode particularly surprising]] since there was no indication this would happen; the first episode of the second season even tries to make it look like it picks up where the last episode left off, at least in the beginning. Also, NothingIsTheSameAnymore. WordOfGod says that there will be another time skip if the show gets a third season, but will not say how much of one.
