* The [[WebAnimation/HomestarRunner Strong Bad Email]] "Cliffhangers" does this a lot, with Strong Bad calling up "cliffhangers" (That had not been seen in any of the shorts before that email) and showing the resolutions right after the cliffhanging "To be continued". Best example would probably be the one with Srong Bad as Space Captainface.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheLegoMovie2TheSecondPart'': The film seemingly has a DownerEnding cliffhanger, when [[spoiler: Emmet is tricked into starting Our-Mom-ageddon by Rex Dangervest, who turns out to be an evil, embittered version of himself from an alternate future who strands Emmet on Undar of the Dryar.]] Then Lucy protests that [[MediumAwareness the movie can't end on a cliffhanger like that]], and she eventually rallies her friends and the citizens of the Systar System into [[spoiler: escaping the Bin of Storage and going to rescue Emmet]].

A [[TheReveal reveal]] or plot resolution is set up to be explained in the next episode or following a commercial break, but is then immediately explained. As you probably can guess; this trope is pretty much always PlayedForLaughs.
