* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' has some episodes that might qualify— most obviously the "WesternAnimation/TreehouseOfHorror" Halloween episodes, but also "22 Short Films about Springfield", the "Run Lola Run" episode (season 12's "Trilogy of Error") and "The Simpsons Spin-Off Showcase".

%%* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' featured two short stories in one episode.



* ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'', much like ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', has three episodes (so far) that focus on everyone else that isn't the main or supporting cast: "The World" (which focuses on the sentient objects in Elmore), "The Extras" (which focuses on the background and one-shot characters that have appeared in minor roles in past episodes), "The Love" (which focuses on the theme of love and includes both main and supporting/minor characters). Other episodes like "The Tape" (where Gumball and Darwin make a video full of sketches and videotaped pieces), "The Procrastinators" (where Gumball and Darwin find different ways to waste time so that they don't have to take out the trash[[note]]it's also a BottleEpisode because the Wattersons and a creepy clown messenger are the only characters and the entire episode takes place in and around the Watterson house[[/note]]), "The Butterfly" (where a butterfly in Miss Simian's class is let loose on Elmore and causes a chain of disaster for everyone in town), "The Uploads" (where Gumball, Darwin, and the viewers watch online videos uploaded on Elmore [=StreamIt=]), and "The Night" (where The Moon examines the dreams of the main and minor characters of Elmore) are also comprised of a number of skits but they still all form part of a single narrative.

As for video games, this happens when a game has multiple modes with each individual mode having its own story. While they tend be connected in the grand scheme of things, the player will often have freedom in choosing how they tackle all the modes.

Alternatively, the game could play just like a TV episode where the storyline is composed of multiple, individual storyline that the player will be transferred between as they progress through the game.
