Added DiffLines:

* Dorothy's second cousin Zeb from ''Literature/DorothyAndTheWizardInOz'' managed to sleep through the 1909 San Francisco earthquake.

Added DiffLines:

* Robo in ''Manga/WastefulDaysOfHighSchoolGirls'' is implied in the manga to sleep for very extended periods of time. One panel in chapter 4 reveals how she once slept all the way from Friday to Monday, not waking up even once, and chapter 15 has her falling asleep on the train home and ended up riding all the way out to the countryside.

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}'': The title character has timed himself to see just how long he can sleep.
** In one strip, this gets exaggerated; he wakes up and looks out the window to see a [[WesternAnimation/TheJetsons Jetsons-esque]] future, to which he says that his nap was a little long.
** In the October 27, 1988 strip, Jon comments that "When he sleeps, he sleeps." This was said in response to Garfield not waking up when it's time for him to go to bed (he'd been on Jon's lap before).


Added DiffLines:

[[folder:Puppet Shows]]
* ''Franchise/TheMuppets'': It's indicated in commentary on the "Bohemian Rhapsody" video that Zoot once went to sleep in a phone booth and didn't wake up until three months later.

Added DiffLines:

[[folder:Theme Parks]]
* In the first part of the pre-show for ''WesternAnimation/ShrekFourD'' at Ride/UniversalStudios, Pinocchio and The Three Little Pigs are somehow not woken up by the dungeon spieler talking over a microphone and by said spieler [[RunningGag getting the audience to shout, "OH NO!" several times]]. They are only finally woken up when the spieler gets the audience to specifically shout at them to wake up.

** And speaking of Pokémon (and moving on to the anime), Ash's Rowlet from the ''[[Anime/{{Pokemon}} Pokemon Sun and Moon]]'' series is a great example of this. In any normal situation, and even during some battles, it's shown to be asleep. Hence why, in episode 12 of season 21, it's treated as a huge OOCIsSeriousBusiness moment when Professor Kukui is woken up by Rowlet, and is stunned to see that it's ''actually awake''- and it's early too:

Also, see NotAMorningPerson, where the character ''does'' wake up... just not exactly early and easily. A particularly heavy sleeper may have SleptThroughTheApocalypse.

SleptThroughTheApocalypse. Characters with this trait sometimes also [[FellAsleepStandingUp Fall Asleep Standing Up]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/TheGoodies''. In "Snooze", Graham Garden invents a bedtime drink that works so well it puts the entire country to sleep for days. Bill doesn't wake up even when he goes sleepwalking across a minefield.


To some degree, TruthInTelevision: see [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Narcolepsy Narcolepsy]], a chronic sleep disorder (a dyssomnia) characterized by overwhelming daytime drowsiness and sudden attacks of sleep.

* ''Webcomic/MacHall'': Helen is such a heavy sleeper that she keeps clinging to Micah even as he gets out of bed, ''gets both of them dressed'' and leaves for class, still with her hanging from his back.
--> '''Micah''': *to an astonished Matt and JM* Yeah, she's a ''really'' heavy sleeper.


Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/MissionHill'': In "Unemployment Part 2", Andy goes up to the roof to catch some sun, ends up nodding off in his deck chair, and doesnt wake up for six hours, ''even when it starts to snow!'' It takes Posie slapping him to wake him up.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Short Term 12'', [[spoiler:Jayden's abusive dad]] can sleep through anything, including [[spoiler:Grace and Jayden fucking up his car with a baseball bat]].


* Heloise on ''WesternAnimation/JimmyTwoShoes''. Samy's repeated attempts to wake her only results in her having DreamSequences about Jimmy.

Added DiffLines:

* Eagle Vision of ''Manga/MagicKnightRayearth'' naps frequently and has been known to miss important ceremonies because he's sleeping. This is a sign of his [[IllBoy poor health]]. [[spoiler:He knows he will eventually enter a permanent coma, and plans to become Cephiro's Pillar so he can put the land into an eternal sleep as well.]]
