* On a syndicated broadcast of Pokémon 2000, the credits were sped up and synced up to a loop of Polkamon.

Added DiffLines:

** The early English ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' episodes didn't have their own credits but they at least featured the intro repeated alongside the ending credits. Eventually even the animation sequence was scrapped and there was just a black screen with credits. When the anime made the ChannelHop from Creator/CartoonNetwork to Creator/DisneyXD, [=TPCI=] began airing full endings similar to ''Anime/YokaiWatch''.

*** Disney Channel US now does this trope randomly if they ''want to'', and out of nowhere. 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.

** Animated shows from Disney Junior airing on Disney Channel are also subject to this trope. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.



** A particularly egregious example was ''/Anime/MobileSuitGundam00'', which had many episodes with stingers that were cut, including the final episode of the first season, which led directly into the second season.

** To GSN's credit, they didn't squeeze or in any way interrupt the credits of shows shown in the ''BlackAndWhiteOvernite'' or ''LoversLounge'' programming blocks. At least at first. They did eventually start doing it, much to the chagrin of those maintaining the guide for the show at the site TV.com, who began maintaining a "credits crunch watch," one example of which can be found [[http://www.tv.com/shows/whats-my-line/episode-413-95896/ here]].

** Creator/{{CBS}} spares the Lorre plates at the end of ''TwoAndAHalfMen'', 'Series/TheBigBangTheory'', ''MikeAndMolly'' and ''Mom'' (though replacing the music with a network jingle that exists so a voiceover can be done over it), then they go to a credits display.

* [=CBBC=] (at least when it aired on [=BBC=] One) almost always got its credits squashed - often into an area as small as 1/4 by 1/4 of the screen (seriously) - just so that the broadcasters could give an extra 20 seconds for the linking announcer to ramble on uselessly during. This got so bad at one point that even the children who watched these programs began to write in to complain about not being able to see the credits (which was rude to both the actors ''and'' the film crews, who never got their due credit). [=CBBC=]'s response to this? [[{{Irony}} They squeezed the credits of even more programs, so that the continuity announcer could read out the letters from the children who were complaining about the practice of credit squeezing.]] [[KickTheDog And then the announcer actually started mocking the kids for wanting to see the credits.]]

** CBBC Saturday Morning show ''Series/DickAndDomInDaBungalow'' literally cut away from the credits of the cartoons it was broadcasting [[https://youtu.be/fBj3TozZ-MY?t=53m3s as seen here]]. Plus, they didn't even show the credits in the corner of the screen. (And no, they didn't show the credits at the end of the programme while theirs were running - ''which didn't get squeezed'')

** Following its abandonment of its commercial-free standpoint and adding to its NetworkDecay, Nicktoons Network makes active use of it. Eliminating probably the only place one can be able to hear the ending theme tune to shows on Nick. In fact, if a show lasts too long, the credit squeeze will often start ''[[UpToEleven before the show is actually done]]''. This happens a lot with ''TransformersAnimated'' and ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender/[[MarketBasedTitle The Legend of Aang]]''. The channel actually still does show its programming with its original credits, but it's gotten to the point where it can only be caught at late-night hours (2 a.m. - 7 a.m. Eastern).

** 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.
