Added DiffLines:

* Darkmoon Island, the site of the monthly Darkmoon Faire on ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft''. While the exact location of the island is a mystery, it's likely to be between the Maelstrom and Northrend, due to being in the Great Sea, ability to catch fish found only in northern Azeroth, and there's occasionally a tuskarr visiting the faire. (Tuskarr are said to die just a few days after leaving their own climate, so the island is likely close to Northend.) In any event, it can only be accessed during the Faire; despite (or possibly because of) shipwrecks around the island, it can't be reached by ship, even though it does have a dock.

Added DiffLines:

* Coolsville, the hometown of the Mystery Inc. gang in ''WesternAnimation/APupNamedScoobyDoo'' and ''WesternAnimation/WhatsNewScoobyDoo''. Its' state is never mentioned, but it's hinted it may be in California, due to some costal settings depicted, and a [[ItsAlwaysSpring rather spring-like]] Valentine's Day seen in "A Scooby-Doo Valentine", and any time there is snow in both series, it's outside of Coolsville in some way.

** 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.

* Creator/HPLovecraft's CthulhuMythos stories intentionally avert this to help build up the sense that his horrors are very real and out there somewhere. He gives precise latitude and longitude for R'lyeh in ''The Call of Cthulhu'', mentions real Vermont towns and faithfully recreates the local environs in ''The Whisperer in Darkness'', and he often goes over travel plans in minute detail to recreate the protagonist's sense of discovery in the reader. LovecraftCountry flirts with this trope but is usually set firmly in New England -- Lovecraft basically created a new river valley in Massachusetts to house Arkham, Dunwich, and any other usefully horrid little towns. Lovecraft himself lived in Providence, Rhode Island, so many fans choose to accept the stories are set somewhere around there.

* In the Focus on the Family radio show ''Radio/AdventuresInOdyssey'', the location of Odyssey is never actually revealed (naturally, neither is Campbell County). It’s implied to exist somewhere in the American Midwest. At some points, it’s explicitly stated to be in Ohio, but other mentions contradict this (such as a claim that it was a month’s wagon journey from Virginia). [[http://www.aiowiki.com/wiki/Odyssey The wiki still maintains it to be in Ohio.]]

* ''WallaceAndGromit'' takes place in a generic [[OopNorth Northern English town]], though when Wallace gets post, the address can be briefly seen as “62 West Wallaby Street, Wigan.”
* ''WesternAnimation/ChickenRun'' is set on a farm in [[OopNorth Northern England]], which could be pretty much anywhere.

” Other hints also suggest a Lancashire setting; though ironically (given the counties' infamous rivalry) Peter Sallis' voice acting gives Wallace a Yorkshire accent.

* Can ''you'' tell me how to get to ''Series/SesameStreet''? WordOfGod says it's based on a neighborhood of New York, and several references in-show (such as Gordon being a Knicks fan) support this. It’s generally accepted to be in Spanish Harlem somewhere. A [[http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/teamt/phelous/37946-phelan-a-allison-try-to-survive-sesame-street short sketch]] by ObscurusLupa and {{Phelous}} spoofs its inexact location. [[http://muppet.wikia.com/wiki/How_to_get_to_Sesame_Street_(rumor) Muppet Wiki]] has all the recorded evidence.

* Literature/EncyclopediaBrown lives in Idaville, USA, with a fair amount of GeographicFlexibility. Some hints suggest that it’s in the Southeast, and an Onion story spoofing the books put it in Florida. One story mentions that the [[https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skunk_ape Skunk Ape]] is “Idaville's version of Bigfoot,” further suggesting Florida and the Southeast.
