* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'': Townsville where the protagonists hang out, has all the giant monsters, supervillains, and other major troubles.

* Stormalong Harbor in ''WesternAnimation/TheMarvelousMisadventuresOfFlapjack''. It doesn't even seem to be anywhere near land, not counting the various islands that are within travel distance, and "How The West Was Fun" shows that travelling west just leads to an endless, empty ocean infested with seamonsters. The harbor doesn't even grow "out" it grows "up", with the richer you are the higher you live. The richest family in Stormalong have a massive manor with a ''lawn'' and Stromalong Harbor is supposed to be a rickety island made of wood planks and piles. Hell, Stormalong even have Suspiciously SpaciousSewer, despite having no foundation!

The fifth season went on to shift from summer vacation to fall, and the school ''was'' seen. However, only the kids from the cul-de-sac were ever seen; never any other students or any of the teachers. (The sixth season goes forward again into winter, but that's irrelevant.)

* The farm in ''WesternAnimation/CourageTheCowardlyDog'' is in the middle of Nowhere, a town in Kansas. This jump-starts some of the plots. The villain theorizes that nobody would easily notice [[AliensInCardiff if they kidnap some yokels in the middle of nowhere]]. However it is such a CrapsackWorld that whenever they travel it turns out that there are plenty of villains and monsters everywhere so it ends up being questionable how safer the yokels would be if the lived ''somewhere''.
