* The web series ''WebAnimation/BattleForDreamIsland'', which is apparently a reality series where the contestants are anthropomorphic versions of common everyday household and/or natural objects. And the "[[TheBlank Helvetica]] [[AndIMustScream Scenario]]" from the pilot episode, "Calcium", is grade-A horror.

* "Look Around You". The entire series is on Website/YouTube. It [[{{Retraux}} appears to be from the late 70's]], and is a rather odd parody of British educational programming. It's like a slightly retarded Wikipedia session, especially with the jumps between topics like opening new tabs.

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 of an insult depending on your opinion of them. 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 entheogens tend to do their work between trips, not during (whether or not said work is inspired by the trips.) Stuff like cocaine doesn't actually make you hallucinate or think trippy things, though it does make doing ''more'' cocaine sound like a fantastic idea.

* ''WebVideo/CodeMENT'' and ''NonePiece'', both made by [=PurpleEyesWTF=]. These two [[AbridgedSeries Abridgements]] are so insane that it's less a question of ''if'' drugs were involved and more a question of ''how many'' and ''which ones''.

* ''Film/TheThiefAndTheCobbler''. The movie's [[DirectorsCut Recobbled Cut]] is both trippy as hell and ''awesome''. This isn't even talking about the ''chase scene'', the only part of the movie anybody remembers at all. (Don't worry, none of it is ''disturbing'' like ''Music/TheWall'' or anything, it just makes you question the creator's sanity. It's made by the same person who made the Raggedy Ann movie and the Creator/ChuckJones [[YetAnotherChristmasCarol A Christmas Carol]], so you know it's fucked up.)

* ''OnceUponATime'', (June the 11th, 1934, to be more precise,) in UsefulNotes/{{Sweden}}, a child was born. This wasn't especially uncommon in itself, but it just so happened that this child was named Staffan Westerberg... One day, when he was 41 years, 2 months and 22 days old, (in other words, it was now September the 1st, 1975,) [[ItSeemedLikeAGoodIdeaAtTheTime Staffan became the producer and show host]] of what was ([[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids supposedly]]) a children's show, ''[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Vilse i Pannkakan, Lost in the Pancake]]''. This show featured finger puppets that Staffan played with, all of them with [[MeaningfulName Meaningful Names]], like the titular main character, Lost. It also included, amongst many other things, a CorruptCorporateExecutive potato, a {{Hobo|s}}, a firefighter who [[FireMenAreHot gets it together]] with a [[OurAngelsAreDifferent motorized angel]] and, naturally, a moose, [[MindScrew all living on the titular pancake]]. And the show was actually AnAesop about society and politics... These days, [[NightmarefuelStationAttendant Staffan Westerberg]] is more or less [[NiceJobBreakingItHero Sweden's official scapegoat for the psychological problems of the entire 70's generation]].

* Before they made ''Anime/KillLaKill'', StudioTrigger created a series that took every single anime and manga trope in existence, parodied it to the point of insanity, removed any semblance of plot known to man, supped it up with every hallucinogenic in the known universe and boil all that down to about 30 minutes.

** ''Penguins of Madagascar'': The Autobots are shockingly absent in this one but don't worry, they're replaced by the North Wind who have apparently been led this whole time by [[Film/DieHard John McClaine]] and [[Franchise/{{Terminator}} the Terminator]]. Oh and did we mention they're trying to stop a talking octopus and a character from ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' whose somehow become the octopus' trainer? Also, the penguins and our heroes somehow know each other despite them not appearing together previously and everyone learns about the power of friendship.

* Creator/AndyKaufman is another example of a 1970s performer whose work, from Foreign Man, to bringing a sleeping bag out on stage and ''taking a nap'', to reading from ''Literature/TheGreatGatsby'', to his various [[Main/WorkedShoot worked shoots]], to his posthumously published writings, would suggest he was on ''something'' illicit when he conceived them. But since childhood he had been prone to eccentric behavior (he conceived routines such as "Mighty Mouse" then), and his drinking and drug use as a teen hardly figured into his artistic equation. As an adult he was a near-health nut who practiced Transcendental Meditation.

* Franchise/{{LEGO}}'s first attempts at constructible action figures, ''{{Toys/Slizers}}'' and ''Toys/RoboRiders'' were admittedly fueled by the kind of abstract imagination-booms you'd expect to see drug users produce, the latter especially: giant robotic motorbikes with goofy faces wielding weapons, whose riders are ''the front wheels'' , which the bikes can launch like missiles to combat an evil virus. In fact, the theme became a failure ''because'' the designers' went so overboard with their ideas, not realizing that kids liked ''Slizers'' due to the story and characters, not for the trippy concept alone. Interestingly, the origin of LEGO's first big action-figure hit, ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'', ''can'' be traced back to medication -- co-creator Christian Faber was taking his medicines to combat a small brain tumor, when he came up with the idea of nano-sized warriors drifting in the ocean in medicine capsules, arriving at the head of a giant robot who's lying sick in the water.
