* Disney also has a trend of retiring short series after two seasons. ''Tasty Time With [=ZeFronk=]'', ''Lou and Lou Safety Patrol'', ''A Poem Is...'', ''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''.

* Ironically, today ''Series/PowerRangers'' is subject to a 22-episode per year limit by Nickelodeon, beginning when the franchise moved there with ''Series/PowerRangersSamurai'' in 2011. However, the show is not under a 65-episode rule, as besides the fact that three seasons of the show would be 66 episodes, it has been on eight years as of the 2018 series, the second season of ''Series/PowerRangersNinjaSteel'', "Super Ninja Steel". Series are aired as two-season blocks that adapt a single season of the ''Series/SuperSentai'' footage, with two-year contracts signed by Saban Brands and Nickelodeon, with no pre-set ending date for the arrangement.

* ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' (a live-action show) was initially intended to run for only 40 episodes, with these episodes using most of the fight footage from its source material ''Series/KyoryuSentaiZyuranger'', a 50-episode series. However, the unexpected popularity of the show led to the first season being extended to 20 additional episodes, just 5 episodes short of the 65-episode quota. These additional episodes featured all new MonsterOfTheWeek footage (known among fans as [[FanNickname Zyu2 footage]]) filmed by Creator/{{Toei}} specifically for ''Power Rangers'' after Creator/{{Saban}} exhausted most of the usable ''Zyuranger'' footage.[[note]]Originally Toei filmed 25 episodes worth of monster footage in order to meet the 65-episode quota, but only 15 of these ended up being used in the end of Season 1 due to leftover ''Zyuranger'' footage that were not adapted for the initial episodes and one of the monster being used for a two-parter. The remaining 10 monsters ended up being used for the first 13 episodes of Season 2[[/note]] Ultimately the show exceeded the 65-episode quota and lasted two more seasons (spanning a total of 155 episodes) by adapting the giant robot/monster footage from the [[Series/GoseiSentaiDairanger two]] [[Series/NinjaSentaiKakuranger succeeding]] Franchise/SuperSentai shows before following Sentai's tradition of producing a new series every year. The Franchise/PowerRangers franchise now spans over 800 episodes.
