* ''Series/Sesame Street'' used cold opens during the 1990s (during seasons 23-29 from 1991-1998). Afterwards, all episodes since season 35 feature recurring pre-title segments which serve the same function.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/TheMuppetShow'': Each episode from seasons 2-4 would begin with Scooter knocking on the guest star's dressing room door, calling the star's name, and announcing the number of seconds remaining until curtain time. Scooter's appearance was then followed by a short quip or visual gag involving the guest star. In season 5, the cold open was changed to show the guest star entering the theater and talking briefly to Pops.
** Similarly, ''Series/MuppetsTonight'' also used cold openings, which, unlike ''The Muppet Show'', didn't always take place in the same location or always have the guest star.

* Several episodes in the first season of ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' have a cold opening. They more or less disappeared in the second, though there were sporadic pre-opening theme joke adverts for futuristic products. So does "The Prisioner of Benda", one of the episode after the series was {{uncancelled}}.

* ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' displays the title upon leaving the Ruins, the first area. This is also the case in the demo which only contains the Ruins, making it CloseOnTitle there.



* ''Videogame/SpecOpsTheLine'' opens with a helicopter pursuit with the player taking control of a helicopter gunner before it jumps to a flashback sequence, the title, and the beginning of the story proper. [[spoiler: Later in the game you play this helicopter gunner section again and after surreal things happen as a result of Walker's SanitySlippage, and Walker remarks how he's done this before.]]

* The 1994 episodes of ''Series/TheRedGreenShow'' opened with Red commenting on a personality quirk of men, followed by "It's not smart or correct, but it's one of the things that makes us what we are." Later episodes had cold opens where Red would either tell a joke to the audience, or create a quick handyman project.



%%* ''Series/TheTomorrowPeople'' did something similar.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/TheBatman'' started most episodes with these. There are a couple that use the BatmanColdOpen (most notably the pilot episode), but for the most part they were used to set up the villain's evil plan for the episode.
