* ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'' has been known for creative title cards featuring not only the titles of the stories but also the writer and storyboard artist, as well as a clever bit of animation. These have included D.W. interrupting Arthur in his bath and Arthur's dog, Pal, finding the title card circle empty and howling. Starting in the 5th season, fans lamented the appearance of the "slot machine" title card, in which the slots landed on a particular character's face. Since ''Follow the Bouncing Ball'' , there's now a short clip from the episode instead.

These days, one tends to see episode titles only on non-primetime animated programming, although even then there are many exceptions to this. (For example, [[FourKidsEntertainment 4Kids]]' Saturday morning block didn't use episode titles on screen at all, regardless of whether the original versions of the shows had them.) Most other kinds of programming eschew from explicitly titling the episode on screen, with most exceptions being [[DramaticHourLong hourlong]] sci-fi (''Series/{{Heroes}}'', ''Franchise/StarTrek'', ''Series/DoctorWho'') or (for some reason) the Creator/AaronSorkin dramas ''Series/TheWestWing'', ''Studio60OnTheSunsetStrip'', and ''Series/TheNewsroom''.

* ''{{Police Camera Action}}'', a co-production of {{ITV}} and {{Optomen}}, had no title cards for the first two episodes ''Danger Drivers Ahead!'' (mid-1994) and the generically titled ''Police Camera Action'' (late 1994/early 1995), then a background of thermal-imaging camera footage with the episode title in BLOCK CAPITALS between 1995 and 1996. No episode title cards were used for the 1996 special ''The Man Who Shot O.J'' about the OJ Simpson trial. From 1997, the title cards were a blue background and white text, with text Like This (capitalised beginning of sentence).
