* During the [[TurnOfTheMillennium early-to-mid 2000s]], Warner Bros. actually had a trend of pulling the plug on shows that reach ''52'' episodes. Shows like ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'', ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'', ''WesternAnimation/StaticShock'', ''WesternAnimation/XiaolinShowdown'', ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution'' all ended at 52 despite high ratings. [[note]]Though Justice League was revived with a sequel series, ''Unlimited.''[[/note]] ''The Batman'' and ''Teen Titans'' both proved popular enough to warrant one extra season and reached 65 episodes. Interestingly enough, ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures'' was the one show during this period that [[SubvertedTropes managed to surpass both benchmark]] thanks to 26 standalone episodes in its second season (a few of which factored into the plot for Season 3).

* In the late 1990s, the minimum amount of episodes a syndicated show could have was now 40. Usually after those 40 episodes, the show would be cancelled. Examples of this include ''[[CaptainKangaroo The All-New Captain Kangaroo]]'', ''WesternAnimation/BuzzLightyearOfStarCommand'', ''LibertysKids'', and the original syndicated version of ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}''. Britt Allcroft had intended to sell ''Series/ShiningTimeStation'' and ''WesternAnimation/MagicAdventuresOfMumfie'' into syndication with 40 episodes each [[note]]although the former had 75 and the latter had 39, but would have 40 counting ''[[ChristmasEpisode Mumfie's White Christmas]]''[[/note]], but after a meeting with Haim Saban, the shows wound up airing on the then-new [[Creator/ABCFamily Fox Family Channel]].

* ''WesternAnimation/InspectorGadget'' did 65 episodes and was then renewed for an additional 21. The second season replaced the voice cast (Except for Gadget, Brain, and Dr. Claw) due to voice recording moving to Hollywood after being outsourced to Toronto for Season 1 (the characters mentioned were already having their voices recorded in Hollywood).

* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' Ended at 138 episodes [[note]]140 if you included the upcoming ''OWCA Files'' special that was produced as part of the series, but billed as a standalone[[/note]], making it Disney's longest-running animated series. The opening theme's references to "104 days of summer vacation" is actually a references to how they only expected the show to have 52 episodes (and thus 104 shorts). Interestingly, the first two seasons together make 65 episodes.

* Disney also has a trend of retiring short series after two seasons. ''Tasty Time With [=ZeFronk=]'', ''Lou and Lou Safety Patrol'', ''A Poem Is...'', the universally-hated ''Nina Needs To Go!'', ''As The Bell Rings'', ''Shorty McShort's Shorts'' and ''Take Two With Phineas and Ferb'' have all suffered this fate. The only exceptions to this are the ''[[WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse2013 Mickey Mouse]]'' shorts and ''Choo Choo Soul''.
