* 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.

* All the ''Franchise/LawAndOrder'' shows use a cold open, with a stock opening title card and narration. The action is either the crime itself or the discovery of a body, and thirty seconds of the detectives opening the investigation. While Jerry Orbach was still with us, almost always ended on a Lenny Briscoe OneLiner.

* ''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.]]

** [[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII KH2]] has [[BigBad Xemnas]] and [[DecoyProtagonist Roxas']] cryptic conversation on the Dark Beach. [[spoiler: Xemnas tells Roxas that he went to see "him". Him is Sora, the main protagonist of the series. Roxas is the Nobody of Sora. Xemnas fights Sora as a bonus boss in Kingdom Hearts Final Mix, available to Japan only, so the cutscene wouldn't make sense unless you know about the bonus boss.]]
