* On many 2004-2005 [=DVDs=] from [=DreamWorks=] Animation, like ''{{Shrek}} 2'', there's a 7-minute preview for ''WesternAnimation/{{Madagascar}}'' that you can't skip. You can just put it in the DVD player, go to the bathroom, make the popcorn, and then catch the last 15 seconds of Ben Stiller talking about how great the film was. This is absent on at least some versions of the Region 2 DVD.

This is one of the few kinds of cases where having such a flag is actually beneficial; you don't want to close your game in the middle of a save operation.

* The fourth SpaceGhostCoastToCoast DVD contains the blue-screen footage of the kittens used in the "Chinatown" episode. It can't be skipped or stopped; the only way to do so is to eject the disc (depending on the player). Though [[EverythingsCuterWithKittens why you'd want to is a mystery]].

* The aforementioned multilanguage FBI warning from the season 1 release of ''Dead Like Me'' isn't just limited to that DVD. It's also annoyingly featured at the end of the DVD release of ''ScoobyDoo: Camp Scare''. So you get the LastNoteNightmare [[TheStinger Stinger]] where ghost guy [[NightmareFuel slowly gobbles up the camera]]...and then the Warner Bros. Animation logo... and then about 17 FBI warnings '''''in every language ever'''''. Luckily it doesn't reboot the DVD. It just cuts to the special features menu when it's at the final screen.

* A "Rental Edition" DVD of ''TheScorpionKing'' released in Australia had a seven minute trailer for the video game that the viewer had to sit through EVERY TIME THEY RETURNED TO THE MAIN MENU. Also, when first loading, there is a ten-minute advertisement for several other movies, which then leads into the video game ad mentioned above.

* Subverted with most UK ''Series/DoctorWho'' DVDs. After the first few seconds of material the DVD gives you the option between normal or vision-impared menu. Taking the normal one gives you a few additional unskippable logos, the vision-impaired version jumps right to the menu, understandably.

* Most games nowadays let you skip the company bumpers when you start by pressing a button, or relegate all the systems and companies to one screen. Games published by Warner Bros Interactive (such as ''VideoGame/MiddleEarthShadowOfMordor'' or ''VideoGame/MadMax'') prevent you from skipping it. Even preventing you from Alt-Tab-ing away on the PC versions.
