* This is how season 2 of ''Series/PhilOfTheFuture'' ended...''[[LeftHanging forever]]''. Phil's family [[spoiler:goes back to the future, right after [[LastMinuteHookup he and Keely finally admit their feelings for each other]]. Problem was, they left [[TeamPet Curtis]] back in the 21st century.]] Obviously this was meant to pick up in season 3, or a movie, or ''something'', but no. There was NoEnding.

There was NoEnding.NoEnding, unless you were to interpret it a one off gag and that the family really just needed to quickly pick up Curtis before heading back for good.

* ''CaptainPowerAndTheSoldiersOfTheFuture'' is the quintessential example, as Season One (the [[CutShort only season it had before cancellation]]) ended with the [[AnyoneCanDie death]] of [[DyingDeclarationOfLove Jeniffer "Pilot" Chase]] after she [[HeroicSacrifice self-destructed the Powerbase's reactor]], both to keep the base's sensitive information from falling into Lord Dread's hands, and [[TakingYouWithMe to destroy Blastarr]]. The FiveManBand was effectively broken up, leaving Power, Hawk, Tank, and Scout destitute and hopeless in the wilderness.

* The last scene of ''WesternAnimation/FindingNemo'' shows Gill and the other aquarium fish successfully escaping through the window and across the street in plastic bags as they had originally planned. However, they realize that they [[DidntThinkThisThrough have no plan for getting out of the plastic bags]], leaving them [[FridgeHorror stuck in there, floating around in the harbor]], prompting one of them to ask "Now what?".
** Granted, a Disney comic shows that they eventually made it out and they catch up with Nemo.

* ''PetShopOfHorrors'' ended with Count D disappearing from Los Angeles, leaving a badly injured Leon looking for answers after (finally) discovering the true nature of Count D and his pets. The flash-forward epilogue never resolves what happened to the two main protagonists [[spoiler: although we know from the sequel and side stories that Leon chases D across the world while D sets up shop in Tokyo and adopts a [[ReplacementScrappy new human]] to torment. Leon's eventual fate, however, is still up in the air]].
