* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'': The trailers for the episode "Society of the Blind Eye" told the audience that the episode would answer the question, "Who wrote the journals?" At the end of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tlcmYwT3uD0 one of them,]] Dipper says the line "[[spoiler:Old Man McGucket]] wrote the journals?!?" Only the person's name was bleeped out. Only the name wasn't ENTIRELY bleeped out; there was enough that audiences could easily tell who he was talking about. Some in the audience, including this troper, thought that this was just Disney trolling us, and crossed that person off our list of potential authors. [[spoiler: The author's identity was not actually revealed in the episode; instead, it revealed that McGucket had worked as the author's assistant. The true author was revealed 4 episodes later.]]

** This is especially significant because Alex Hirsch had [[spoiler:[[TrollingCreator leaked an image of McGucket writing the journals]]... and fooled most of the fans for a year and a half prior.]]

** Commercials for the series tend to make it look more comedic than it really is. It has a lot of humor but it isn't on par with ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime''. Several episodes have humorous promos however once the actual episodes have completely serious plots.

The promo for the season 3 premier event "In Too Deep" may be the first to actively portray the [[CerebusSyndrome shift in tone]] the series as a whole has undertaken starting about mid season 1.

** The previews for the hour-long episode "Truth or Square?" were all about this. It first and foremost featured Spongebob saying "Remember the day Sandy and I got married?" and shows the other characters reacting with shock, making it look like the episode is about Spongebob and Sandy getting married secretly. In reality, the episode is just about the characters getting lost in the Krusty Krab and having random flashbacks about different things. Spongebob and Sandy getting married is just one of those flashbacks, it is only shown for about a minute, and [[spoiler: it turns out that Spongebob and Sandy are just getting married in a play.]] The commercials also said that [[TheReveal Mr. Krabs would finally reveal the Krabby Patty secret formula.]] [[spoiler: [[AssPull He didn't.]]]] ''[[RuleOfThree Another]]'' commercial said something about Patrick's "secret side" while showing him assaulting Squidward, [[spoiler:though that was really just one runaway gag.]]

* Some home videos containing episodes of ''Disney's Doug'' open with promos for ''[[Disney/OneHundredAndOneDalmatians 101 Dalmatians: The Series]]'' and ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'', both of which show footage that doesn't appear in a single episode of either series.
** This is due to both shows using clips from their respective pilots (Most evident with ''Recess'', due to the [[YouDontLookLikeYou very different appearances of T.J. and the gang]]) than from actual episodes.

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' show promos for that made it seem like that upcoming episodes were humorous. Once the actual episode airs the plot soon becomes completely serious.

** Stevenbomb 4 was advertised as "Steven's Birthday Week." Of the five episodes that aired that week, only two took place on Steven's birthday, one of which was primarily a flashback to thousands of years in the past with only about a minute of time actually being on Steven's birthday, and the episode that ''did'' take place on Steven's birthday was by far the least plot-relevant of the five. The much more notable event of Stevenbomb 4 [[spoiler:(Peridot becoming a Crystal Gem)]], which dominated three of the five, was only implied by some of the footage.

* Commercials and promos for GarfieldAndFriends rarely show footage of the B show, ''ComicStrip/USAcres'', and focus instead on the ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}'' parts. Out of all of these promos on the internet,''two'' actually showed US Acres clips in them: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bHSkaNcdyeU this promo]] for Nickelodeon's broadcasts (Booker writing on the title screen from the opening), [[http://www.imdb.com/video/screenplay/vi1386807577 this commercial]] for the [=DVDs=] (Orson, Roy, Wade, Booker and Shelldon landing on the ground from the opening), [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l6PyXkq_dDk this promo]] for Creator/{{CITV}}'s broadcasts (self-explanatory) and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6iz1ATHgYo8 this promo]] for The Children's Channel's broadcasts (same thing as the Nick promo).

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Wakfu}}'' suffers from this, presumably because its erratic airing schedule justifies trying to make each next episode look as CrazyAwesome as possible. A specific example is the trailer for episode 16, which included frames of a character surrounded by flames, wielding his demonic sword and screaming with black tendrils growing up his arms, which led fans to believe that he would finally [[DemonicPossession lose control of his demon]] in a much more dramatic way than previously shown. In the actual episode that scene only served to [[RuleOfCool make him look cool]].

** She did come back in "Eileen's Flat Screen however", much to the delight of Mordecai x Margret fans, and the twists with Mordecai and CJ.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}'' did an interesting variation with its Archer Vice montage in the last few minutes of Season 5's first episode by meshing events that ''do'' end up happening [[spoiler:(the ISIS team getting in trouble with the yakuza, Ron Cadillac getting shot at by said yakuza, Cheryl/Carol becoming a country singer named Cherlene, Pam having a cocaine addiction that gets them in trouble with a biker gang, Archer, Ray, and Cyril bringing cocaine into Columbia and getting stuck there, the ISIS team going to San Marcos)]] with events that ''don't'' happen [[spoiler:(Archer and Lana getting in trouble with a gang, Archer getting a tiger to the chagrin of Lana, Cheryl/Carol/Cherlene getting kidnapped by a different gang, her tour bus exploding, Agent Holly cornering Archer a la ''Film/TheFugitive'', Archer, Lana, Mallory, Pam, and Cyril getting stranded on a raft with a tiger, Pam and Cheryl/Carol/Cherlene starting a "freakin' coup", Lana's water breaking the same way Mallory's did, and Archer invading Laos with his manicurist...[[RunningGag and a tiger]])]] and some that are...in between [[spoiler:(a tiger ''does'' get involved in the season, but not how the montage would make you think it does)]].

** The previews for ''Screams of Silence: The Brenda Q story'' only showed one of the few comedic moments of the episode (The "Iraq Lobster" cutaway. The episode itself however, is one of the most darkest and serious eps of the series, more of a drama than anything (though admittedly, that would be hard to put in a promo)
