* The ''WesternAnimation/DefendersOfTheEarth'' episode "100 Proof Highway" dispenses with the show's usual format in favour of a [[VerySpecialEpisode storyline in which Rick, LJ and Jedda confront the issue of teenaged alcoholism]]. The only science fiction and fantasy elements in the episode are a flying police car seen near the beginning and the scene where Mandrake conjures up a vision of Kshin's death in a drink driving accident to [[AnAesop teach the boy a lesson about underaged drinking]].

** Creator/ChuckJones was known for experimenting with animation in many cartoons: ''WesternAnimation/TheDoverBoys'' (1942) features stylized and limited animation almost a decade before it became fashionable. ''WesternAnimation/DuckAmuck'' (1953) is unusual in the sense that it stars Daffy Duck throughout most of the entire cartoon, who is constantly changed, muted, erased,... to the point that he is actually seldom ''in'' this cartoon as his own self.

"Now Hear This" is a rather unique and experimental cartoon as well.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' occasionally showed flashback-based, almost art-house style episodes.

** "The Futurama Holiday Spectacular" is made of three unrelated vignettes centered on the three 31st century holidays - Xmas, Robanukah, and Kwanzaa - with a GreenAesop thrown in.



** "Reincarnation" and "Saturday Morning Fun Pit" depict the characters and their adventures in the styles of other types of animation, though there are differences. "Reincarnation"'s doesn't have a framing device and doesn't make fun of the animated genres it shows. It's more like "What if ''Futurama'' was an early 1930s black-and-white cartoon, or a 1980s video game, or a Japanese cartoon from the 1970s?" Meanwhile, "Saturday Morning Fun Pit" had a framing device with Richard Nixon's head and the headless body of Spiro Agnew trying to watch Saturday morning cartoons and having to deal with angry MoralGuardian protesters, the cartoon parodies shown were based on American cartoons (''Scooby Doo'', ''Strawberry Shortcake'', and ''G.I. Joe''), and the episode made fun of just how irritating the Saturday morning TV experience is once you take off the [[NostalgiaFilter nostalgia goggles]]: corny jokes, crummy writing, mediocre animation, media watchdog groups complaining about children's cartoons being too violent, and a lot of shows being little more than 30-minute commercials for toys and cereal.

* ''[[SixTeen 6teen]]'' has "Dude of the living dead", which almost completely forgoes the show's typical teen-sitcom antics in favor of doing a {{parody}} of [[EverythingsDeaderWithZombies classic zombie movies.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/SidTheScienceKid'' is normally a very StrictlyFormula type of show, in which Sid would always wonder about something in the morning, the go to school and learn about it with his teacher and friends. However, there were a couple of breaks from this. The "No School Sing-Along Special" featured Sid and his friends on a day off when they decided to do a sort-of concert thing. There was also "Sid's Backyard Campout," in which Sid, his friend Gerald and his father, Mort, had a campout in Sid's backyard and explored nature and such.

** They also did some sketches featuring none of the typical cast (e.g. "The Flame", a candle flame watching ThomasJefferson write the Declaration of Independence) and/or more serious tones than the rest of the show (e.g. "Puttin' on the Blitz", a Rita & Runt segment set in World War II Poland).

Added DiffLines:

** There is also the episode "Aqua Farmer", which is almost entirely about Eustace, in lieu of Courage as the protagonist. (In contrast, he is completely absent from "Cajun Granny Stew", although this could be chalked up to EarlyInstallmentWeirdness.)
