* ''WesternAnimation/TheBeatles'' cartoons used three sets of opening title cards. The cartoons made in London had each of the letters in "Beatles" expand and retract with the opening seven notes (not always in order) then do it with the notes in the rest of the title card music with the last seven notes following the letters in order and the episode title fading in. The Australian cartoons followed the first seven notes, then the expanding letters only in single tempo to the music. The Canadian cartoons had the second half of the music abbreviated, thus rendering the expanding letters out of sync.

* ''Series/OddSquad'' starts off with the title on what is now the trademark manila folder. Always read by Ms. O, who also opens the folder to reveal a photo from the episode before we zoom in and the episode begins. This is due to the fact that, in-universe, episodes of the show are known as cases to Odd Squad themselves.

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, [[Creator/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''.

* In ''TheBeiderbeckeTrilogy'' the episode title is always the first line of dialogue, and appears on screen when the line is spoken.



* Unusually for a [[TalkShow talk show]], [[Creator/ConanOBrien Conan O'Brien's]] show ''Conan'' has episode title cards, though they're fake titles ("Baa Baa Blackmail," "Murder, She Tweeted").

* ''WesternAnimation/AlmostNakedAnimals'' pairs this with ArtShift, using a highly-detailed art style to depict a random moment from the episode.



* ''WesternAnimation/DanVs'' has this (paired with EpisodeFinishesTheTitle) after TheTeaser, ''instead'' of a TitleSequence.



* The first season of ''WesternAnimation/IAmWeasel'' featured title cards where an animated Weasel read the title and commented on the forthcoming plot. Starting with the second season, the series used still cards in the vein of its sister show ''WesternAnimation/CowAndChicken''.
* While the original ''WesternAnimation/InspectorGadget'' series lacked title cards, the [[WesternAnimation/InspectorGadget2015 2015 reboot series]] makes use of them, complete with a little animation.

* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' has an interesting variant, the episode titles are only numbers. The episodes do have titles, but those titles are only found in [[AllThereInTheManual outside sources]]. In the [[AnimeThemeSong 15th opening]], there is a montage of earlier title cards.
* ''Anime/{{CODEGEASS}}'' has one at the start of each episode (called stages in R1 and turns in R2).
* ''Manga/FushigiYuugi'' begs to differ. White screen, black kanji and hiragana, music. That is all.
* ''Anime/GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex'' Has a short screen with the episode title in English, a secondary title in vertical Japanese, and a novel like description of whatever action happened right after that episodes opening scrolling up the left in (usually) decent English.
** In the first season, these title cards also mention whether the episode is "Stand Alone" or "Complex" (aka, part of the MythArc)
* ''Manga/{{Inuyasha}}'' has a character reading the episode's title.
* ''Manga/KamichamaKarin'' has the episode title cards read by [[TalkingAnimal Shii-chan]], complete with her {{Verbal Tic}}s added to the title.
* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' has a character reading the episode's title.
* The first two ''Franchise/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' series have her reading the episode title while it's shown on a red sphere (ostensibly her Raising Heart pearl), with the same music bed used in both seasons. ''[[Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikers StrikerS]]'' has a more dramatic music bed and no title read, presumably to reflect its more serious nature, with the title put over an i-ching pattern.
* Each episode of ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' has two episode title cards: one with a Japanese title, usually shown near the beginning of the episode, and one with an English title, shown after the commercial break. This tradition has even carried over to the movies.



* ''Series/TheGetDown'' graffitis its episode title onto one of the subway cars that rolls through frame during the ColdOpen, and uses the appearance of the subway to cue the theme music.




* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' did this only eight times in 25 years; the most notable of these instances was [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS2E10BartGetsHitByACar "Bart Gets Hit By A Car"]], and a second after the title dissolved, Bart got....[[CaptainObvious hit by a car]]. Others are "The Telltale Head", "The Simpsons 138th Episode Spectacular" (celebrating six years), "22 Short Films About Springfield", "The Simpsons Spin-Off Showcase", "Behind the Laughter", "The Book Job" and "Homerland".

** In fact, ''WesternAnimation/KaBlam!'' has its title cards shown at the END of an episode (minus episode 8 and 29)
*** Likewise for ''WesternAnimation/FairlyOddParents'', ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'', and ''WesternAnimation/TUFFPuppy''.
* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' had [[http://anbat.toonzone.net/galleries/index0.html gorgeously painted]] ones for the first 85 episodes, often paired with the episode's villain's LeitMotif.
** ''[[{{Retool}} The New Batman Adventures]]'' and other ''[[Franchise/{{DCAU}} DC Animated Universe]]'' shows displayed a brief plain-text overlay of the title just after the opening credits.
* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' made [[http://img15.imageshack.us/img15/821/1263059941168.png hilarious]] [[http://img6.imageshack.us/img6/8025/1263060671605.png use]] of this trope in the episode "Aquaman's Outrageous Adventure" Culminating with the image on [[http://sharetv.org/shows/batman_the_brave_and_the_bold/episodes/509021 this page]].
* ''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.
