** Both Creator/{{AKOM}} and {{Sunrise}} often went off-model in their episodes for ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries''. Though while Sunrise generally produced decent animation, AKOM tended to give characters wildly different proportions, made characters look like balloons, and even drew Batman with moobs at one point. It was their work on the episode "Cat Scratch Fever" that got them fired.

** This may have to do with the fact that Creator/{{Madhouse}} did several season 1 episodes before the producers had {{Sunrise}} do the rest of the series.

* ''WesternAnimation/ExoSquad'' suffered greatly from this trope to the point of varying within the same episode. In part, this was due to a change in animation studios. {{Sunrise}} was originally supposed to animate it (as seen by the ending credits test-animation), but they had to bail out to make ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing'' and the series ultimately ended up in the hands of Creator/{{AKOM}}.

* The early [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation Golden Age]] ''WesternAnimation/WoodyWoodpecker'' cartoons prior to Shamus Culhane and Dick Lundy (but mostly Dick Lundy) taking the directorial reins were really prone to going off model, or just suffering from very mushy, sloppy animation in general.

** ''SonicUnderground'' seemed to have some kind of obligation to deviate from the model sheets at least OncePerEpisode, especially when it came to Sleet and Knuckles. The animators could never decide on a consistent size for Knuckles, particularly--you'd have a couple of shots where he'd appear to be around Sonic's size, then a few cuts later and he's suddenly half as tall.

Added DiffLines:

** In "New York's Shiniest", April starts off wearing a rather sexy pink and lavender outfit which never reappears. She makes a phone call still wearing it, but in a later scene, at the end of what appears to be the same phone call, she is wearing her regular yellow jumpsuit. Perhaps more than one studio did this episode?

* At the end of the G1 series finale, Bumblebee is seen cheering after the Autobots' victory. Goldbug is seen standing nearby. The problem? Bumblebee was rebuilt and became Goldbug in "The Return of Optimus Prime". The two are one and the same.

** ''The Simpsons'' (at least the episodes that used traditional cel animation [from seasons 1 to 13; 14 to present use digital ink and paint) has so many off-model moments that the trope should be renamed "Epic Animation Fail." Go on snpp.com, click on the transcript of any episode and you'll see a laundry list of animation and continuity mistakes.

* The characters of ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' are deliberately drawn off model ''a lot'', giving them flowing and dynamic animation and expressions. Sometimes the quality of character animation will strengthen or diminish based on their emotional/psychological state (Pearl is the most obvious example of this). Rebecca Sugar defends all of this saying that cartoons are supposed to be fluid and expressive, not stiff and static like other cartoons.

Added DiffLines:

* The characters from ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'' in the pilot look almost ''nothing'' like they do in the actual show.
** In a few Season 2 episodes, the bottom of Kaeloo's head looks larger than usual.
