* In ''WesternAnimation/DragonsRidersOfBerk'' the group leave Berk and set out to explore new lands, creating a HomeBase called Dragon's Edge. It's demonstrated to take at least a day by dragon to get from Berk to Dragon's Edge, but this extreme distance only seems to be a problem when it's convenient for the plot.

* On ''Series/ThePajanimals'', the Pajanimals can get to whatever magical lands they want or wherever, such as clouds that are close enough for them to talk to the moon, in just as long as it takes to "bundle up, huggle up, snuggle up and go!"

* In ''Film/KingsmanTheSecretService'', Harry manages to get from his home in England to a church in the United States quickly enough that A. Eggsy is still hanging around and checking Harry's laptop, and B. Harry expects to be back soon to continue a conversation. Even if we assume Harry took a private jet, that's an 11-hour flight by commercial standards. Apparently the Kingsmen have a ''really'' quick way to get around.

** Occasionally, travel times on the show can be calculated in seconds, usually in the form of someone arriving at CTU to hear plot-critical information moments after they left another location. Perhaps CTU has access to OffscreenTeleportation?

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/TheManInTheHighCastle'': The events in the series are mostly set in San Francisco (occupied by the Japanese), New York City (occupied by the Germans), Canon City (the neutral Rocky Mountains), and also Berlin starting from the end of season 1. Characters will often travel from one place to the other within the same episode, though it's not always clear how much time has elapsed in between. Season 2 suggests that the events of the previous season only took 2 weeks. Some of this is explained by high speed air travel, but at some points they'll just take a car drive across several states instead.

* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek 2}}'', it takes Shrek, Fiona, and Donkey several days to get to Far Far Away. Later in the movie, when the supporting cast finds out that the group is in trouble, they get there in just a few hours. It's implied that perhaps the supporting guys were riding on Dragon and Dragon is capable of flying at a much faster speed than a typical horse-drawn carriage is able to travel.

Worse in ''WesternAnimation/ShrekForeverAfter'', Shrek travels the distance between his home and Far Far Away three times within less than a day.

* In ''[[Film/TheArkOfTruth Stargate: The Ark of Truth]]'', The time on the spaceship fighting the replicators seems to take less than a day, however Teal'c goes on an epic journey through mountains on foot in that same span of time.
