- Almost every episode of Gintama can count as a Bizarro Episode.
- The entirety of Michael Jackson's Moonwalker. The premise sounds straightforward enough - MJ uses The Power of Pop to save a little girl from drug dealers - but it... really... just... isn't. Even his biggest fans were left scratching their heads, wondering if he'd written the script by dictating the results of an acid trip. Seriously, if we tried to describe it here, you would not believe us. Just go to YouTube and search for some clips, and bear in mind, every single one of them Makes Just as Much Sense in Context.
- We're Back! A Dinosaur's Story... where to begin?
- First up, the entire movie is a flashback being told to a random bird. Why? It's never mentioned except at the beginning and at the end.
- The time traveler says he wants to save the world by giving dinosaurs to all of Earth's children. Ignoring for the moment exactly how taking animals out of their native environment (never mind geological era) and bringing them to New York City is supposed to save the world, he drops them in the ocean, whereupon, after some time, they coincidentally discover a small boy. Okay then.
- Furthermore, if this guy is a time traveler, why does he show up at the end, rather than earlier to prevent the dark climax from ever occurring at all?
- The Aesop of the film is supposedly that "family is good"; however, none of the action corresponds with this, and the two main characters' lack of parents is somehow resolved at the end without explanation.
- The tedious scene in which we watch a hat fall onto a young girl's head would appear to drive the plot somewhere... but it's never mentioned again.
- Likewise, the children's romance doesn't go anywhere either.
- The inexplicable musical number.
- The Big Bad's unneeded and horrifying death scene... right after seemingly learning his lesson about scaring people. This scene would have actually made sense if a previous one had made it into the final product. It's kinda scary though.
- Said horrifying villain death is all the worse because it is immediately preceded by a scene where the dinosaurs go from angry and wild to cuddly and cartoony through the Power of Hugs. Basically, this movie has balls to do this with the picture book it is supposedly based upon.
- The Hangover could be considered a Bizarro Episode. By the end of the movie, you have sort of a vague idea as to what could have happened last night. But you're still left wondering as to how one situation led to another.

2. Redirect the Big Lipped Alligator Movie redirect to Non-Serial Movie.
