* When the original ''WesternAnimation/JonnyQuest'' series and the 1986 revival were syndicated together on ''The Funtastic World of Hanna-Barbera'', the original show's title sequence was replaced with the revival's. Even the {{Episode Title Card}}s were redone in the new series' style, with the writers' names added.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' episodes from seasons 1 to around 6 replaced the original couch gags with the couch gag from the season five episode "Rosebud" [[note]]The episode where Mr. Burns finds his long-lost teddy bear, Bobo[[/note]] where The Simpsons rush to the couch, only to find clones of themselves on the couch (unless the episode was a ''Treehouse of Horror'' episode, in which the original couch gag or opening is shown intact). When more episodes were put into syndication, the original couch gags were kept in (except for the season eight episode "The Itchy and Scratchy and Poochie Show". In the original airing, the couch gag was a repeat of the one from "Bart After Dark"[[note]]The burlesque house episode[[/note]] where The Simpsons are part of a Simpsonized version of Music/TheBeatles' ''[[Music/SgtPeppersLonelyHeartsClubBand Sgt. Pepper]]'' album. In syndication, the Simpsons' ''[[SgtPeppersShoutOut Sgt. Pepper]]'' album couch gag is replaced with the one from "Kamp Krusty" in which The Simpsons rush to the couch and meet WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones. The reason behind this change was because "The Itchy and Scratchy and Poochie Show" is the episode that broke ''The Flintstones''' record for longest-running animated prime-time show.)
* The broadcast syndicated reruns of ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' from seasons 1 to 4 replace the changing newspaper headline running gag to the opening where Roger appears in Stan's car and has on a different costume [i.e., his hockey player costume from "Return of the Bling," his SassyBlackWoman character from "Oedipal Panties," his Francine costume from "Best Little Horror House in Langley Falls," etc.] The Creator/{{TBS}} and Creator/AdultSwim airings have the original openings for both the early episodes and the new ones.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones''' original Title Sequence (featuring entirely different animation and a different, InstrumentalThemeTune) was replaced with the now-familiar "Meet the Flintstones" opening in the show's third season, and was rarely seen until Creator/CartoonNetwork came along.

* When you watch a syndicated rerun of a first-season episodeof ''Series/TheTwilightZone1959'' episode, the odds are 50-50 that the original Title Sequence (with the Music/BernardHerrmann music) will be replaced by the second season opening (the first one to use Marius Constant's more familiar theme).

* ''Series/RedDwarf'', when Creator/TheBBC re-edited it to add more special effects (à la the ''Franchise/StarWars'' reissues), added a new TitleSequence for all the seasons.

* North America's Disney airings of ''Literature/{{Madeline}}'' all had its original "I'm Madeline" opening replaced with the "Hats Off to Madeline" used in ''The New Adventures of Madeline''. Inverted with Disney Asia's airing of the second season of ''The New Adventures of Madeline'' though, in which they replaced the third opening, "Oh, Madeline", replaced with "Hats Off to Madeline".

* Similarly, ''Manga/DragonBall'' originally used two opening animations and four ending animations, but the U.S. dub and [=DVDs=] only use opening 1 and ending 2. This is aparently because Creator/{{Toei|Animation}} [[TheyJustDidntCare only gave them a single clean opening and ending,]] [[BadExportForYou and have not given any foreign dubs the other versions at all]].

* ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'' had a different opening sequence when it originally ran on TheDisneyChannel, but the opening was changed when it went into syndication as part of WesternAnimation/TheDisneyAfternoon. The syndication opening is what's been used in airings since, as well as on the [=DVDs=].

Added DiffLines:

* Intro/Outro sequences are shorter in the US than in Japan to make room for more commercials. Many anime shows are shown with different and shorter opening and ending sequences on US broadcast television, even when they were dubbed uncut, though the home video releases usually have the original Japanese sequences.

* An unusual case for ''WesternAnimation/AvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'': episodes 20-26 broadcast overseas before airing in the US, and boasted the same opening used in preceding episodes. However, Creator/DisneyXD decided to tack recaps onto the beginning of ''their'' broadcasts, which resulted in the theme song becoming replaced by a short expository speech (which doubles as a promo for the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse). When the show became available for legal download, streaming, and home video purchase, the recaps and expository speeches got removed to make room for the original theme song.
