* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zTxn0PCqUNA This trailer]] for ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooAndTheGhoulSchool'' from 2002 shows very little footage from the actual TV movie, instead throwing in clips from the first three direct-to-video Scooby-Doo movies by Warner Bros. Animation (such as ''Zombie Island'' and ''Witch's Ghost''), to make it look like the whole gang goes to Miss Grimwood's Finishing School for Girl Ghouls, instead of just Shaggy, Scooby and Scrappy-Doo (and the trailer only contains one very brief shot of Scrappy, very small.)

* The trailer for season 4 of ''WesternAnimation/BojackHorseman'' focuses on the side characters and heavily implies that Bojack will be missing for a large part of the season. He's only gone for two episodes.

* To promote ''WesternAnimation/MarvelsSpiderMan'', Marvel put out a series of posters, [[https://static3.comicvine.com/uploads/original/4/46646/5813593-6718589659-15403.jpg one of which]] features more traditional versions of ComicBook/DoctorOctopus and the Rhino and a more ''Film/SpiderManHomecoming''-esque design for the Vulture. In the series proper, Ock and Rhino YoungerAndHipper (and much like [[WesternAnimation/{{Ultimate Spider-Man}} the last time he was animated]], Rhino mutated into a more rhino-esque appearance rather than a man in a costume) and the Vulture looks more inspired by ''Anime/ScienceNinjaTeamGatchaman''.

** ''Family Guy'' tend to do this a lot recently, especially with episodes featuring an A-Plot with Meg or Chris and a B-Plot with Brian and Stewie. The promotional image for "Not All Dogs Go To Heaven" was Stewie with the ST:TNG cast, as well as the summary. six minutes onto the episode, Peter announces that it's going to be a Meg Episode (although in the end it was more about Brian). The ''Franchise/StarTrek'' cast got like one or two lines each. Another similar example is Stew-roids. All the promotional images and summary were about Stewie muscling up [[note]]which, by most accounts, [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot would have made a better plot]][[/note]], and implied that the story involving Chris, Meg and Connie was a minor subplot.

** The episode ends with another trailer for an episode they have no intention of making, which hasn't stopped some fans from hoping to see "Meap Me in St. Louis".

** The TV ad for the episode "Helter Shelter" referred to the Simpson family getting a reality show, then a scene that showed Homer on a toilet that fell through the ceiling and saying "Hey, I'm in here!" while a "RECORDING" icon flashed in the corner as if that was part of the reality show. Instead, the toilet falling through the floor was home damage that the Simpsons joined a reality show to pay for - and rather than a manic dysfunctional-family based show a la The Osbornes (or HereComesHoneyBooBoo for modern viewers), it was a parody of [=PBS's=] 1900 House called 1890 House, in which The Simpsons had to live as it it were 1890.

** The previews for "The Clash of Triton" led us to believe that Neptune locked his son in a magical cage thousands of years ago because he was out of control and caused destruction and chaos throughout the sea. Turns out [[spoiler: he was locked in the cage because he was the ''opposite'' of that and actually liked mortals. Instead of being SealedEvilInACan, Triton became evil ''because'' he was sealed away]]. It also led us to believe that the episode was about SpongeBob doing battle with Triton to save the sea [[spoiler: but it wasn't until half the episode was over until Triton started terrorizing the town. Furthermore, the only heroic thing SpongeBob did was free Neptune so ''he'' could stop Triton, and that only took a few minutes]].
** The promos for The Great Patty Caper, titled the episode "Mystery with a Twistery", and they made it seem like [[spoiler:somebody other than Plankton stole the Krabby Patty formula. Nope, it was Plankton as usual.]] The special even dropped the "Mystery" gimmick for the second half of the episode.

** Trailers and Commercials for ''WesternAnimation/TheSpongebobMovieSpongeOutOfWater'', totally hyped up when the main characters are on land, in CGI form. [[spoiler:It was only for the last third of the movie, while most of the film was in 2D animation.]]

** They did something similar with the fifth episode of the SequelSeries, WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra. The trailer made it seem like it would be about the pro-bending tournament. [[spoiler: The episode focused on the series LoveDodecahedron.]] The internet promptly exploded.

** 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: [[TheyWastedaPerfectlyGoodPlot 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.]]

* An very odd example involving a bumper for a show: during ''[[WesternAnimation/NoddysToylandAdventures Make Way For Noddy]]'''s run on PBS Kids, PBS did not bother to make new bumpers for the show since they already had some, as they had last aired a Noddy series four years before. While one of these promos could be used in conjunction with the show and showed Dash making shadow puppets, with one that turns out to be Noddy, the coming up next promo was the one used for ''Series/TheNoddyShop'', which mainly focused on the puppets from that version of the show, and only showed Noddy for two seconds.
