A sad implication of this mindset is the misconception that truly creative works demand the use of mind-altering drugs -- which, if you are a creator who wasn't taking drugs but gets this accusation leveled at your work, can be something highly insulting (as it diminishes a creator's own creativity and inventiveness). And in real life, composing any work of art (or doing anything more complex than opening a door, for that matter) is borderline impossible when tripping on hallucinogens like DMT or mescaline. Most admitted users of psychedelics tend to do their work between trips, not during (whether or not said work is inspired by the trips.) Stuff like cocaine doesn't, in normal doses, actually make you hallucinate or think trippy things, though it does make doing ''more'' cocaine sound like a fantastic idea, and heroic single doses or a long history of heavy cocaine use has been documented to cause psychotic breaks of one kind or another.

He claims he never touches drugs and that his ideas come from a combination of having suffered brain damage from working around hazardous materials and from working a ''very'' boring job that lets his mind wander.

** WebOriginal/{{Cracked}} [[http://www.cracked.com/article_17455_15-retarded-dungeons-dragons-monsters.html has a list of bizarre D&D monsters here.]] Of course, it includes the Senmurv, but there are some other trippy monsters there as well.

* ''WesternAnimation/YellowSubmarine''. Particularly the Sea of Time/Monsters/Holes/Phrenology/Holes sequences. In the behind-the-scenes portions of the DVD, it's revealed that while the animators never did drugs, they would often return to work a little drunk after having a few too many pints during their lunch break.

* ''Series/Nanalan'' fits quite well. It's about a pre-school child named Mona visiting her nan and having fun in either her house or her garden. Sounds simple and harmless enough, but since Mona is too young to properly speak and the episodes were originally only 3-4 minutes long, some very obscure scenes came out. The most famous scenes are probably the very weird "Peepo" moment about naming vegetables or the almost sexually obscene "Lollipop" episode.
