*** Disney Channel US now does this trope randomly if they ''want to'', but with timing. Example: to give way for the two-parter series finale of ''Series/AustinAndAlly'', they did this trope on an airing of ''Film/{{Descendants}}'', where before it didn't happen.

** When ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'' aired its sneak peek on Disney Channel, the credits sequence was shrunken down into a tiny box at the bottom, while a commercial for one of those kid sitcoms played in a large box at the top. This caused viewers to miss out on a large portion of the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mJKqtEa6DU8 credits song]] until the series' official premiere on Disney XD. Thankfully the later airing of the episodes on Disney Channel do keep the end credits (Mostly after coming from the last break of the show).

** Creator/AdultSwim and Creator/{{Boomerang}} avert this. Both show the end credits of every show in their entirety, complete with the vanity plates intact.

** Creator/{{Toonami}} usually doesn't air endings for anime. In the 2000s they had original credits that had a black screen and showed screenshots. With the 2010s revival instead they opt to squish the credits and speed them up.

** Another disconcerting version of this is used in the Creator/CartoonNetwork airings of some of the later ''[[Anime/{{Pokemon}} Pokémon]]'' movies, which show the credits during an epilogue scene. Not only is the screen squished and the audio muted, but the credits are sped up for time, ''making the entire epilogue scene go in fast-forward.''

** And unfortunately, it happens with their live action ones, but the almost averted examples are two music-based series, ''Series/{{Victorious}}'' and ''Series/BigTimeRush''. So yeah you don't get to see their original credits of the shows, but in the mentioned shows, you get fast and squished credits, but instead of a promo, you get at least a shortened music video from the singer of the show, making it look like ''actual'' ending credits, i.e. a VictoriaJustice music video playing in the squished credits of ''Victorious''.
*** Probably the worst sufferer of this was ''LiveActionTelevision/DrakeAndJosh'', which always had an entire [[TheStinger cold-ending]] clip play during the end credits. However, even before the end of the show's ''original run'', Nick decided ads were more important and completely replaced the normal credits with standard, side-squished ones. This especially hurt the show whenever the cold-ending had a significant impact on that episode's plot.

*** The ''[=iCarly=]'' episode "[=iDream=] of Dance" ended with a reprise of Carly's dancing dream....with [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Spencer in Carly's role]]. Said dance routine continued through the end credits, but due to Nick's usage of split-screen credits (and the last-minute credits as well) it's no longer seen.

** The first time ''The Rugrats Movie'' aired on Nickelodeon, rather than using the movie's credits (which included a considerable number of Korean animators' names), they took the credits straight from IMDB, complete with credits marked "(Uncredited)" (and, in fact, "(Uncredited)" appeared in the aired credits).

** For some reason, Nickelodeon mistreats the credits, but leaves the {{Vanity Plate}}s intact (after the promo next to the credits ends, it cuts to the plate(s)). They also often seemed to mix up with the Frederator logo for ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'' and ''WesternAnimation/MyLifeAsATeenageRobot''. The very end of the closing theme can be heard over it, but apparently, Nick had trouble remembering which theme song went with the two shows.

* Creator/ABCFamily is a huge offender when they air shows which aren't made for the channel. If your name's not ''[[Series/TheSecretLifeOfTheAmericanTeenager Secret Life]]'', ''Series/PrettyLittleLiars'', ''Series/MakeItOrBreakIt'', or any other ABC Family original show, all you'll get is a VanityPlate 1st, then this. It didn't take long for the trope to also apply to original programming as well, and still continue this practice as Freeform.

** If there's another movie showing after the previous movie, this trope happens, but shows the channel's logo, "You're watching: (insert next movie's title)", the sped up credits on the left and the opening scene of the next movie on the right. This is particularly noticeable during ''13 Nights of Halloween'' and ''25 Days of Christmas''.
** The only exception is ''Series/The700Club'' which still shows the standard full credits because the contract with Pat Robertson requires the program to be shown with absolutely no editing whatsoever.

* You know this trope is a part of culture when ''NickJr'' is in the habit of using it. Thankfully, this only occurs on the Nickelodeon channel itself--on its 24-hour channel counterpart, this trope is averted, and has always been since its former inception as Noggin. This even includes the controversial [=NickMom=].

* Logo TV (a [[NetworkDecay formerly]] gay & lesbian-centered network, with a smattering of bi and trans programming) has started re-runs of ''Series/{{Buffy|The Vampire Slayer}}''. Unfortunately the squish the credits (both acting and crew) and run them underneath last minute and half of the episodes. To top it off they completely cut out the ending theme tune, and Mutant Enemy's infamous "Grr...argh!" logo.

* The Creator/DiscoveryChannel and its entire family cuts the credits entirely, superimposing credits typed by the network over the final 30 seconds of the program, including [[VanityPlate logos]]. For instance, ''Series/HowItsMade'' normally shows the logo of the National Film Board of Canada, but the one as shown on Discovery and Science Channel has its name simply written in the same white Arial as everything else.

* Creator/AntennaTV recently started doing split screen credits, they shove the credits and closing logos to the left of the screen and mute them. On the right they show the first few seconds of the next program coming up and after the credits finish zoom into the program starting. Especially daunting since they used to be known for ''not'' doing this practice.

Added DiffLines:

*** Programmes on the BBC tend to be longer than those on commercial networks. A 30-minute show on the BBC lasts about that long compared to around 20 minutes on ITV etc, where they need room for adverts at the bookends and during, so there is still limited time between shows.

** This was also done with PBS Kids as well, during the morning Miss Rosa and Hooper block. Thankfully, in 2013, this was dropped after PBS Kids merged the aforementioned block with Go! and did away with this practice.

It then returned in 2016, where the credits are squeezed as a small animation discussing the educational theme of the show that was just broadcast featuring Dot and Dash plays.

* {{GSN}} does this very annoyingly, squishing them to the point of illegibility and even cutting off the {{Vanity Plate}}s on most shows. Most of the time, this also nullifies the fee plugs read by TheAnnouncer (though those, strangely, are still closed-captioned). They were at least smart enough not to do this on ''LetsMakeADeal'', because Monty Hall kept the show running during the credits.

** ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' has beautiful end credits music....that's completely skipped over when it's broadcast. Like the previous two examples, most fans consider it a waste on the network's part. The outro theme even changes as time goes on and is story-related, however Cartoon Network still doesn't air it.

Like the previous two examples, most fans consider it a waste on the network's part. The outro theme even frequently changes as time goes on on, revealing itself to be a full-length song called "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tS38ywgJ24w Love Like You]]" when all the sections are put together, and is story-related, however story-related. Cartoon Network still doesn't air it.it. This became a problem when the season 3 finale aired, as the song underscores an especially moving scene that goes to credits as the song finishes for the first time with the last line. When pushed back, it's quite jarring as it cuts off.
