* Very common on ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'': "Dim", a NoDialogueEpisode; "Deedeelocks and the Ness Monster", where Deedee tells a [[FracturedFairyTale bizarre fairy tale mashup]]; "Star Check: Unconventional", a parody of ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' in which a convention of doll collectors are treated as a strange alien culture; "Dexter and Computress Get Mandark", a goofy little story [[ArtShift apparently drawn in crayon]], with narration and dialogue provided by a tape sent in by a six year-old boy named Tyler Samuel Lee; and "La Bretto", which tells Dexter's life story in the form of an ''opera''. Really.
** There's also "Blackfoot and Slim", which is an episode presented as a nature documentry that observes Dexter (or Blackfoot as he is called in this episode) and his daily activities until he realises what's going on and tries to run away from them until he is shot with a tranquilizer dart.
** "Framed", a completely normal SliceOfLife story about Dexter's broken glasses starting a trend at school. It's very dialogue-heavy and introduces a bunch of characters that are never seen again.
*** Not technically true. Becky and Glenn do re-appear in a few other episodes, albeit DemotedToExtra.

** 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.

"Now Hear This" is a rather unique and experimental cartoon as well.well, with minimalist backgrounds and character designs and a bizarre plot about a British gentleman accidentally using the Devil's horn as an ear trumpet, leading to lots of surreal SoundDefect-based gags.

* The ''{{Sealab 2021}}'' episode "7211" is basically free of humor, because the ''Sealab 2020'' episode on which is is based (in which the crew works fast to save another submarine from nuclear meltdown) is left mostly unchanged, merely trimmed for time and re-dubbed in the ''2021'' voices. In the context of a series filled with non-kid-appropriate jokes and a crew that never gets its act together, the effect is AntiHumor.
