* A common trope in early Creator/DiCEntertainment series. While ''WesternAnimation/HeathcliffAndTheCatillacCats'' had title cards because of its TwoShorts format, the company didn't start using them consistently until ''WeternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'' in 1986, leaving shows like ''WesternAnimation/InspectorGadget'', ''WesternAnimation/{{MASK}}'' and ''WeaternAnimation/JayceAndTheWheeledWarriors'' without onscreen titles.

* ''Series/SavedByTheBell''
* ''Series/{{Scorpion}}''



* ''Series/SavedByTheBell''



* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' : no title is displayed on the comic pages. The only way to know a specific comic's title is to look it's number up in the archives (also, the last comic's name is displayed in the side bar). The names of each StoryArc aren't included anywhere in the online comic, only the print editions. Which, fortunately, also display the title of the individual strips at the bottom of every page.

* ''WesternAnimation/BobsBurgers''



* ''WesternAnimation/SidTheScienceKid'' is actually a somewhat rare example of preschool / young children's animated series that does this. The only thing that's shown at the beginning of the episodes is a small amount of crew, such as executive producers. No episode titles are given.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheJetsons'' subverted this. The original 1962 season did not display the titles, at least when aired in syndication. But when seasons 2 and 3 were produced in the '80s with title cards, the first season was retrofitted with title cards to match.

Although the majority of modern scripted programs omit episode title cards, this isn't a new innovation, as sitcoms since the start of network TV have only rarely shown on-screen episode titles, and even in the 1950s and 1960s some drama TV series did not show titles, such as ''Series/MissionImpossible''.

* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' has a variant: The episodes have title cards, but ''the show itself'' doesn't. WordOfGod is that they forgot to actually put it in.
