* ''WesternAnimation/TootAndPuddle'' followed the ABA format when aired on television - a story, followed by the interstitial "Boomerang Song," followed by another story. The downloads offered on Website/YouTube are presented as individual stories. When actually aired in the three shorts format, the rule was usually if not always that one story would be about Toot (and occasionally both Toot and Puddle) traveling the world, with the other story about an adventure at home in Pocket Hollow.

* ''WesternAnimation/TimeSquad'' mostly had two shorts (much like most other original Creator/CartoonNetwork programming under the "Cartoon Cartoons" brand[[note]]and a lot of the current Cartoon Network programming, though those cartoons are just packaged as two-short cartoons in daytime reruns. Whenever a new short comes on Thursday, the network airs the new short first, followed by a repeat of the last rerun that came on...unless, like the ''Regular Show'' episodes "Exit 9B," "The Real Thomas," "Skips' Story," and "Brilliant Century Duck Crisis Special," there was a full, 30-minute episode that can't be broken into two parts[[/note]], save for ''WesternAnimation/CowAndChicken'', which had an ''WesternAnimation/IAmWeasel'' cartoon in between two ''Cow and Chicken'' cartoons until ''I Am Weasel'' was spun off to its own show), but the seventh episode of season one had three shorts ("If It's Wright, It's Wrong," "The WesternAnimation/TimeSquad Recruitment Ad," and "Killing Time.")
