* The beginning of every opening to ''WesternAnimation/{{Unikitty}}'' features a different scene of CGI-animated LEGO characters tuning in to watch the show, at which point it switches to the regular 2D animated intro.

** The actual intro in the first four seasons contained a couch gag of its own with a different sound every time Arthur fell off the screen. Sometimes the letters would fall with the sound of glass shattering. Sometimes the glass shattering would be preceded by a "boing" sound. Sometimes the sound was a splash and sometimes it was what sounded like a pile of tin cans falling. Since season 5 only the glass shattering sound has been used.

** Stan will pick up a paper in the opening credits, and the headline will vary every time. It will usually be a cynical pun on a common aphorism, such as "Optimist Drowns in Half-Full Tub", or "Hooker Killed for Heart of Gold". Subverted in an episode where the headline is "Alien Spotted", with a picture of Roger, thus jump-starting the plot of the episode (and ending the theme song early).

* For ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow'', there was originally a short-lived curtain call segment used at the end of the show before the ending credits. It lasted only for season 1 (except for two episodes) and one episode of season 2 ("Sven Hoek"). It involved Ren saying goodbye to the audience, with a worried Stimpy crying and asking what will they do until next time. Ren suggests two different wacky things he could do, but Stimpy doesn't like them. Ren then suggests a third idea, which Stimpy likes and ends up doing.
** Interestingly, three of these variants were used on the 1996 VHS of "Nothing But Shorts" at the beginning and end of the video, as well in the middle serving as an intermission segment. All three versions have the dialogue entirely re-dubbed and serve as hosting segments to the video. (In the intermission segment, Ren even lampshades that they can "take it easy by recycling old jokes until the tape runs out", despite Stimpy protesting that it'll make them hacks.)

** Neither formula was used in the episode "Flirting with Disaster". Instead the whole opening was an AffectionateParody of TheOffice.

* The episode title cards from ''{{WesternAnimation/Arthur}}'' usually show a different animation involving characters from the show interacting with a large circle. For example, one title card shows Francine hitting the circle as if it was a gong, followed by Arthur screaming in annoyance. Another title card had Buster spoof the Creator/{{MGM}} logo.

In earlier seasons, these were recurring gags that were used for various characters, though if they didn't have one for a particular character, they would use a slot machine coming up on that character's face beginning with the fifth season. In later seasons, the cards became customized, showing an actual scene from the story.

* ''Series/TheAddamsFamily'' cartoon of 1991 had Wednesday trying to pull a prank on Pugsley, if she succeeded or not and how was different every episode. Also the photo shot of the family at the end is different.



* In the DVD version of ''[[WesternAnimation/PixarShorts Cars Toons]]'', [[WesternAnimation/{{Cars}} Mater]] will actually say "If I'm lyin', I'm cryin'" in a different manner that relates to the episode's plot. For example, in "Moon Mater", it is nighttime, and Mater says "Houston, if I'm lyin', I'm cryin'", and in "Mater: Private Eye", it is black and white, and Mater will say the opening title in a manner similar to film noirs.
