** The Japanese predecessor to ''Elite Beat Agents'' (''OsuTatakaeOuendan'') has a few of these as well. In the original, "Over The Distance" had a much quieter call for help and had their target running down the stairs to Heaven instead of the more HotBlooded regaining of spirit and countdown. In the sequel, "Believe" and "Sekai wa Sore wo Ai to Yobun da ze" are similar to "You're The Inspiration" and "Jumping Jack Flash", respectively.

Added DiffLines:

** "A Lot Going On Upstairs" had Stewie, traumatized by a monster in his nightmare, having his dancing and singing thrown off, culminating with him singing, "Pumpkin pie!" instead of "Laugh and cry!" He ends up being benched with the show's ChuckCunninghamSyndrome characters, with Peter's Arab co-worker Fouad taunting Stewie that he won't be back in the show.
** "Inside Family Guy", an episode portraying the characters as AnimatedActors, displayed production photos of the show while an instrumental version of the theme song plays.

* The "X-Cops" episode of ''Series/TheXFiles'' used a modified version of the title sequence from ''Series/{{Cops}}''.
** Also used during the end credits of [[Recap/TheXFilesS05E05ThePostModernPrometheus "The Post-Modern Prometheus"]] when the traditional [[FadeToBlack fade to black]] is passed over in favor of the final shot of Mulder and Scully captured like a comic book frame, followed by a deformed hand closing the "comic book" to reveal Chris Carter's producer credit on the back cover.
* ''TheYoungOnes'' did this two weeks on the trot with Nasty - done in the style of a Hammer-Horror film - and Time - the first five minutes, including the titles sequence, parodies ''Dallas''.

** "Dad Behavior" (which marked the beginning of Season 28's WABFXX prouduction episodes, which were produced by Fox Television Animation rather than Creator/FilmRoman) had Barney destroy Bart's skateboard (which leaves Bart to walk home), followed by Homer choking to death on the carbon rod that usually falls into the back of his shirt, Lisa tripping and getting killed by her saxaphone, and Maggie driving Marge's car off the road, through a farmyard, and into a lake where they drown. The entire sequence, including its CouchGag, can be viewed [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h365_F5BzDg here]].

** "Moho House" and "Dogtown" both put their Couch Gags before their actual {{Title Sequence}}s. In the case of "Moho House", it uses a TitleOnlyOpening in which the episode begins with a tracking shot across Springfield as Moe narrates, with the title showing up as the camera approaches the Simpsons' house. "Dogtown", meanwhile, uses the usual opening, but after Bart leaves the school, it segues into the episode proper, with Homer getting stuck in traffic while driving home from work.

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'':
** [[Recap/StevenUniverseS1E49JailBreak "Jail Break"]], the SeasonFinale for the first season, replaces the normal laundry/piano riff title card with an eerie panorama of space, which makes sense since the episode starts with [[WakingUpElsewhere Steven imprisoned inside Peridot's hand-ship]].
** The following episode [[Recap/StevenUniverseS2E1FullDisclosure "Full Disclosure"]] has the title card featuring the remains of Peridot's hand-ship scattered along the beach background.
** The title cards for "Steven the Sword Fighter", "The Test" and "Story for Steven", while having the same calm piano riff, has it raining over the title card with no laundry hanging from the clothesline.

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'':
** [[Recap/StevenUniverseS1E49JailBreak "Jail Break"]], the SeasonFinale for the first season, replaces the normal laundry/piano riff
Most ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' episodes use a standard title card differentiated only by text, showing the beach near the Gem Temple with one of the temple's hands in the foreground, holding a washing machine and a clothesline with some of Steven's clothing on it. The end credits usually use an eerie panorama alternate portrayal of space, which makes sense since the same view. There are a variety of exceptions:
** The standard card has minor variations for weather, time of day, and other conditions around the temple. "Ocean Gem" has all the water missing because
the episode starts with [[WakingUpElsewhere Steven imprisoned inside Peridot's hand-ship]].
** The following episode
is about a gem having stolen Earth's oceans. [[Recap/StevenUniverseS2E1FullDisclosure "Full Disclosure"]] has the beach covered with debris from the spaceship that crashed there in the season one finale.
** If one episode ends with a CliffHanger, the next one will have a
title card featuring that reflects the remains of Peridot's hand-ship scattered along location where the beach background.
** The title cards for "Steven
next episode begins. "Beta/Earthlings" and "Back to the Sword Fighter", "The Test" and "Story for Steven", while having Moon/Bubbled" extends this to the ''ending'' credits of each first part using the same calm piano riff, has it raining over image as the title card for the second.
** The season one finale is two episodes that premiered simultaneously ("The Return" and "Jail Break")
with no laundry hanging from credits inbetween. Instead, the clothesline.credits at the end of the second part are double-length, which allowed for a longer version of the ending theme WithLyrics.
** During a series of episodes where the Crystal Gems are working out of and staying in a barn, the title card and credits both change to match the barn. The opening card also has variants for day and night.
