''WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers'' had two variations.
* ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales''.** ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' have few exceptions, though, such as the clip of Gyro rescuing Scrooge in space while the dollar he's trying to grab gets snatched by an alien instead.

* ''[[Disney/OneHundredAndOneDalmatians 101 Dalmatians: The Series]]'' did a unique spin on this and had the main characters running through a spotted background (Six variants were used with purple, blue, red, teal, orange, and magenta backgrounds) with [=TVs=] showing clips from various episodes. The episodes used (Not every episode was used in each variant) were "Dough The Right Thing", "Love 'Em and Flea 'Em", "An Officer and a Gentledog", "The Dogs of [=DeVil=]", "You Slipped a Disk", "Chow About That?", "Tic Track Toe", "Lucky All-Star", "Shake, Rattle, and Woof", "Cadpig Behind Bars", "Leisure Lawsuit", "You Say It's Your Birthday", "Two Faces of Anita", "Lucky to be Alone", "Four Stories Up", "It's a Swamp Thing", "Roll Out the Pork Barrel", "Prima Doggy", and "Frisky Business".
* ''WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'' does this in the second season.
* ''WesternAnimation/BuzzLightyearOfStarCommand'', after its 3D gags. Also EvolvingCredits.
* Most, if not all, of the opening of ''WesternAnimation/CareBearsWelcomeToCareALot'' was this.
* ''WesternAnimation/ChalkZone'' had two. The first one (which was used for the first two seasons) included clips from most of the original ''WesternAnimaton/OhYeahCartoons'' shorts (which were included in the first season): "[=ChalkZone=]" (which was retitled "Rudy's First Adventure" and written as a WholeEpisodeFlashback in the show), "The Amazin' River" (which was retitled "French Fry Falls" and also written as a Whole Episode Flashback), "Rudy's Date", "Snap Out Of Water", "Chalk Rain" (which was not repackaged as an episode of the show), "Secret Passages", and "Rapunzel". The only parts of the theme song not part of an episode were clips of Snap, Penny, and Reggie saying, "Rudy's got the chalk!".
** The third and fourth seasons replaced the clips (with the exception of the ones made for the theme) from ''Oh Yeah! Cartoons'' with clips from various episodes from the second and third seasons (plus one episode of season three that didn't air until season four): "Hole In The Wall", "The Terrible 2 1/2s", "Superhero Snap", "Portable Portal", "Snap On Tour", "Waste Mountain", "The Heist", "Battle of the Hands", "Chocolate Brunch", "The Smooch", "Pumpkin Love", "Chip Of Fools", "Chalk Queen", "Snap's Wishy Washout", "Follow the Bouncing Bag", "Asleep at the Chalk", "Water Water Everywhere", and "No Place Like Home".
* ''WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers'' had two variations.
* ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales''.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Franklin}}'' used this. Because Skunk moved away a couple of episodes in, the opening was edited for the second season with an entirely new set of clips, none with Skunk. The same set continued to be used for the remainder of the show's six season run, despite significant changes that included the addition of Franklin's sister Harriet.
* ''WesternAnimation/GarfieldAndFriends'' switched to having one of these in its third season. (Prior to that, the original title sequence was an animated sequence of Garfield and the ''ComicStrip/USAcres'' characters fighting for the spotlight.) The first title montage would notably be the only theme song the show used in syndication. The show got a different title montage in season 6, and then another one when the theme song itself changed in season 7 (though it's replaced by the season 6 intro on the [=DVDs=]).



* While ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' averts this in the US, the Japanese dub of the show uses this trope, along with using different theme songs:
** The episodes with the theme "It's Up To You" uses "Imaginary Fiend", "Child Fearing", "Too Poofed To Puff", "Birthday Bashed", "Daylight Savings", "Beat Your Greens", "Los Dos Mojos", "Abracadaver", "Mo Job", "Supper Villain", "Uh Oh Dynamo", "Ice Sore", "Pet Fued", and "The Bare Facts"
** "Creampuff Shuffle" would use "Power Lunch", "Three Girls and a Monster", "Meet the Beat-Alls", "All Chalked Up", "Hot Air Buffoon", "Monkey See, Doggy Do", "Mime For a Change", "The Bare Facts", "Slave the Day", "Mommy Fearest", and "Cat Man Do".
* ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow'' is not only one of the only {{Nicktoons}} to have one of these, every clip in the opening comes from one episode, the pilot "Big House Blues."
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Rupert}}'' intercut some episode scenes with original animation.
* Select series of ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDoo'' feature the Montage. And when not using this, different opening sequences will feature a montage of different MonstersOfTheWeek.

* ''Series/TheTomorrowPeople'' (1990s version) and ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|1978}}'' (both the original and [[Series/BattlestarGalactica2003 the 2005 version]]) are unusual in that the montages consist of clips from the upcoming episode. The latter was inspired as an homage to ''[[{{Space 1999}} Space: 1999]]'', which opened each episode in the same manner.

* ''radio/TheBrewingNetwork'''s The Session starts out with a series of clips from previous episodes, along with a [[OpeningNarration voice over]] that gives a basic description of what the show is about. The clips have been changed several times to give some variety.

* ''Series/{{Thunderbirds}}'' (probably the earliest example of this type) also uses only clips from the upcoming episode, apart from the Supermarionation credit, which appears over an exploding industrial complex. This shot is not present in any episode, and was made just for the montage. It is worth noting that both ''Series/{{Thunderbirds}}'' and ''[[{{Space 1999}} Space: 1999]]'' were made by Gerry Anderson.
* The season of ''EverybodyLovesRaymond'' that used the Steve Miller Band's ''Jungle Love'' as theme music used a montage of clips from prior seasons set to the music.

* ''SpacePrecinct'' (another Gerry Anderson series) mixed this with the standard Title Montage (with a caption reading THIS EPISODE appearing before the clips from that episode, the this episode caption was also used in Space: 1999).

* The ''Series/HawaiiFiveO'' opening [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AepyGm9Me6w (1968 original)]] was a "travelogue" of scenes from around Hawaii. Most of it was shot just for the opening, with only a few short clips (''e.g.'' the "Zulu as Kono" freeze-frame) lifted from the pilot or one of the early first-season episodes.
** Although this montage was changed with other shots of cast members (and other clips, such as the welder and the exploding car) as the series went on, some shots stayed for the duration - most obviously Jack Lord's.
