* Some editions of ''DeadLikeMe'' Season 1 launches into an unskippable parade of copyright notices in every language known to man, lasting almost five minutes, ''at the end of every episode''. Then it reboots the DVD so that you have to watch the opening {{vanity plate}}s (also unskippable) again before you can get back to the menu.

** This despicable behaviour is par for the course on many, MANY, ''MANY'' region 2 [=DVDs=], regardless of movie or TV show, and has been for ages. It's the main reason to sit there with the remote already in your hands while watching the credits, prepared to hit the Menu key before the unskippable copyright notices start.

* The Warner Bros. remastered ''WesternAnimation/{{Popeye}}'' sets have an unskippable piracy warning at the start. If the disc detects it's being played on a Region 2 player, the warning will play again, this time in Japanese.

* Parodied in ''BillBailey's Guide to the Orchestra'', where he specifically refers to the notorious unskippable and un-fastforwardable 1997 Universal Pictures logo sequence. He has the orchestra play a sped-up syncopated version of the sequence (as though fast-forwarded on a DVD player) 'just so the audience can get the satisfaction of hearing it once'.

* 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.
