* ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'' takes place in the fictional town of Endsville. We never get any clues about where the town is, and it doesn't help that, being one of Cartoon Network's more absurd shows, the geography of the town and the natural scenery surrounding it can change to fit the plot.

* ''Series/BigWolfOnCampus'' takes place in a town called Pleasantville whose precise location is never explained. The show was created in Canada, so it's possible it takes place there, though the fact that Tommy Dawkins idolizes John Elway implies that Pleasantville is in Colorado.

* ''WesternAnimation/EdEddnEddy'' takes place in a small town called Peach Creek and gives no hints as to where the town actually is.

* The cult favorite slasher film ''Film/SleepawayCamp'' is known to take place in Upstate New York, made evident by the natural scenery of the camp's location and the New York accents and dialogue of several characters, who obviously live in the New York City area and would logically head upstate for summer camp. However, it's unclear exactly where upstate the camp is.

* ''Series/{{Oz}}'' takes place in an unnamed state, likely in the Northeast.

* ''ChickenRun'' is also set in [[OopNorth Northern England]] but on a farm, which makes it even harder to tell where exactly in Northern England it is. * Most Pixar movies fall into this trope, one notable exception being ''WesternAnimation/FindingNemo'', which is known to take place in the part of the ocean just off the east coast of Australia, as well as Sidney during the fish tank scenes.

Added DiffLines:
* In ''WesternAnimation/ABugsLife'', the setting is never specified, but the arid landscape and mention of a rainy season heavily implies it is either in Texas, the American Southwest, or Southern California.

* ''Series/{{Community}}'s'' Greendale is placed rather ambiguously. It seems to be in Southern California from various small details in episodes, but it's never stated clearly, and AllThereInTheManual information says it's in Colorado. This may be for legal reasons, to make it more difficult to link the show to Dan Harmon's experience in community college in California, should one of his classmates accuse him of basing a character on them.

* ''Series/{{Community}}'s'' Greendale is placed rather ambiguously. It seems to be in Southern California from various small details in episodes, but it's never stated clearly, and AllThereInTheManual information says it's in Colorado. There's also a reference by Jeff in season 1 to having mistakenly had a phone conversation with a guy from Boulder, a known college town in Colorado. This may be for legal reasons, to make it more difficult to link the show to Dan Harmon's experience in community college in California, should one of his classmates accuse him of basing a character on them.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfJimmyNeutronBoyGenius'': The show is set in the town of Retroville. It is never actually stated where in the US Retroville actually is, but there are several hints that imply it is located in Texas, including the warm climate, presence of rodeos, and phone numbers with a 212 area code. In fact, in the movie, when Goddard is converted to fly cycle mode, you can even see the "Bad Dog" vanity license plate being from Texas. However, in "Attack of the Pants," Carl at one point exclaims that his uncle is from Texas, though this might just be a throwaway line or an indication that Carl doesn't know what state he lives in, which is a possibility considering he is known to be dimwitted. Even if Retroville is in Texas, it's still unknown what part of the state it is in, which makes a difference since Texas is the second-largest state in the union behind Alaska.

* ''WesternAnimation/RocketPower'' is a minor example. The fictional town of Ocean Shores is confirmed to be on the beaches of Southern California, it's just not confirmed exactly where it is along that coastal area (for example, it's unclear if the town is closer to Los Angeles or San Diego).

* ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold!'' is set in the fictional city of Hillwood. There are very few clues as to where the city is located, other than the fact that there are forests and mountains as well as the beach, all within driving distance. The looks of the city itself don't provide any evidence, but the natural scenery implies that it is somewhere along the Pacific Northwest. Indeed, creator Craig Bartlett, who is from Seattle, has stated that he based Arnold's city on an amalgam of northern cities such as Seattle and Portland, though there is also a little bit of New York City thrown into the mix, particularly with the Brooklyn-style brownstones and the subway.
