* ''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.")

When the shows were re-run on their own and released on VHS, they each became two stories.



* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyAndFriends'' aired in this format. First was ''My Little Pony'', and then one of three other shows. ''My Little Pony'' was the only segment to get aired every week. The other properties, ''Glo Friends'', ''Moondreamers'', and ''The Potato Head Kids'' (yes, really), alternated each week.

* ''WesternAnimation/KickButtowski'' typically had a two-shorts format, although two episodes were full 22-minute stories and the final episode (in production order) contained three 7-minute shorts.
