* {{Doug}}'s Nickelodeon seasons were Two Shorts format.
* ''[[WesternAnimation/TwoStupidDogs 2 Stupid Dogs]]'': ABA structure, with new ''WesternAnimation/SecretSquirrel'' episodes in the middle.
** No Secret Squirrel cartoons appeared in the 1994-1995 Syndicated airings.
* Zigzagged from "played straight" to "averted" with ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow''. Some episodes had two shorts, some had two shorts and a fake commercial, and a handful of episodes (like "Son of Stimpy" and "Royal Canadian Kilted Yaksmen") don't have this format.
* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'': Some special episodes filled the whole 22 minutes, but most were of the Two Shorts format.
** Except the fourth season, which had only two of 13 episodes in this format.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'' was initially aired as ''Grim and Evil'', sharing an ABA structure with ''WesternAnimation/EvilConCarne'' before the latter was [[SpinOff spun off]] and then cancelled. Both shows became two short format.
* ''WesternAnimation/CowAndChicken'' shared an ABA format with ''IAmWeasel'' until, as above, the second-string short was spun off. Neither show lasted very long.
* ''WesternAnimation/DastardlyAndMuttleyInTheirFlyingMachines'', ABCA with "Wing Dings" and ''Magnificent Muttley''. Later in the run the show went AABC.
* ''WesternAnimation/GarfieldAndFriends'', ABA with ''USAcres'', also known as ''Orson's Farm'' overseas and on the DVD cut. Originally aired in an hour-long form on Saturday morning, making it a Six Shorts format, but it was really two ThreeShorts episodes grafted together.
** In between the shorts most of the time would be "Quickies". There were three kinds: as mentioned above, there was a "Garfield Quickie" based on the Garfield strips, a "US Acres Quickie" based on the ''U.S. Acres'' strip, and a special kind named "Screaming with Binky", to inform viewers that the show wasn't over in the usual half hour, and starred [[MonsterClown Binky the Clown]].
** The first season was only aired for a half-hour. Starting with Season 2 onward, the show was aired for an hour.
* ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'', ABA with either ''Dial M for Monkey'' or ''The Justice Friends''.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'' is generally Two Shorts. In fact, between the 1991 premiere of ''Rugrats'' and the 1998 premiere of ''The Wild Thornberrys'', ''every'' {{Nickelodeon}} cartoon was generally Two Shorts (with the exeption of KaBlam!, which was an animated sketch comedy). These are still the majority.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'', ABA with a rotating cast of B's, most notably ''PinkyAndTheBrain''.
** About a third of the episodes of the spinoff version of ''WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain'' used the Two Shorts format, occasionally with a quickie musical filler.
* The "Treehouse of Horror" episodes of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''.
** And the episode "Trilogy of Error," where the three seemingly irrelevant plots of Homer accidentally cutting a finger off, Lisa trying to get to a science fair, and Bart and Milhouse discovering a mafia's illegal fireworks ring are connected more and more throughout.
** And other "Treehouse"-style non-Hallowe'en episodes, such as "Tales From The Public Domain", "The Simpsons Spin-Off Showcase", and "Simpsons Tall Tales".
** [[ExecutiveMeddling The studio executives actually planned originally for all the episodes to be in this format]], but thankfully they were eventually convinced otherwise.
* The original ''Birdman'' ran ABA with ''The Galaxy Trio'', coming in on the heels of ''WesternAnimation/SpaceGhost'' running ABA with ''Dino Boy''.
* ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'' generally did two 11-minute shorts, though some episodes did take up the whole 22 minutes (e.g. "Parent's Day" and "Helga on the Couch"), and "The Journal" took up two separate 22-minute blocks.
* ''WesternAnimation/CoolMcCool'' followed the ABA format with B being Harry [=Mc=]Cool.
* ''WesternAnimation/RubyGloom'' uses an unusual format, where one full-length episode is framed by two super-short segments.
* ''Literature/EdgarAndEllen'' uses the Two Shorts format, with the addition of a closing super-short segment.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'' uses the Two Shorts format, with short live-action fillers in between: "And now a word from us kids!"
** In some of the newer episodes, "A Word from Us Kids" was replaced by a "PostcardsFromBuster" skit.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{SpongeBob SquarePants}}'' generally uses the two 11-minute shorts format. A few episodes, including the pilot, used the three shorts format, and 22-minute episodes are considered specials.
* ''WesternAnimation/RockyAndBullwinkle'' followed the ABCA format. The "Rocky" segments took up the beginning and the end, the B would be "Mr. Peabody" and C would either be "Fractured Fairy Tales," "Aesop and Son," or "WesternAnimation/DudleyDoRight".
** Another Jay Ward program, ''WesternAnimation/GeorgeOfTheJungle'', followed the ABC format, with the other two segments being "Tom Slick" and "Super Chicken."
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSuper6'' also followed the ABC format with A being Super Bwoing, B being the Brothers Matzoriley while C would feature Elevator Man, Super Scuba, Granite Man, Magneto Man or Captain Zammo.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'' does the Two Shorts format, except for specials.
* ''WesternAnimation/DragonTales'' uses the [=ABA=] format, with the "B" slot taken by a Dragon Tales Tune.
* ''WesternAnimation/ThePinkPanther''. [=ABA=], with the B being either a short with ''WesternAnimation/TheInspector'', or a less well-known Creator/DePatieFrelengEnterprises cartoon like ''WesternAnimation/TheAntAndTheAardvark'' or ''{{Misterjaw}}''.
* ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'' often alternated between three shorts and full length episodes.
* Done only occasionally in the early seasons of ''WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends.''
* The second season of ''WesternAnimation/CaptainNTheGameMaster'' ran an ABA format, despite Captain N not technically being a short, with a 22-minute Captain N episode being framed by 11-minute ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros3'' episodes over the course of an hour. The last season was instead Two Shorts, with a ''Super Mario World'' cartoon and an 11-minute Captain N cartoon (usually one of the 22-minute episodes from the earlier seasons butchered into 11 minutes).
* ''WesternAnimation/HiHiPuffyAmiYumi'' ran as three shorts.
* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' uses a Two Shorts format for most episodes. However, there have been several full 22-minute episodes, an extended-length Christmas episode, and two occasions were the second short takes place within the same time as the first short, often to show different points of view.
* ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDragonJakeLong very rarely'' used the Two Shorts format.
* ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' also ''very rarely'' used the Two Shorts format.
* The "Anthology of Interest" episodes of ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'', as well as "The Futurama Holiday Spectacular", "Reincarnation" and "Saturday Morning Fun Pit".
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Freakazoid}}'' used this format for its first season, but it wasn't really ABA, or ABC, more like ABZ, DFA, or WTF, but switched to full 22-minutes episodes for its second season.
** Which was the setup for a BrickJoke for the AnimatedActors of the other superheroes to show up and complain about not getting any airtime.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheAlvinShow'' followed [=ABA=], with the B being a short featuring Clyde Crashcup, a BunglingInventor who invented things already in existence.
* ''WesternAnimation/HeathcliffAndTheCatillacCats''. The B was ''The Catillac Cats''.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheBeatles'' animated series was ABA, with A being the actual cartoons and B as a sing-a-long with two Beatles songs and introductions for each.
* ''WesternAnimation/JimmyTwoShoes'' follows the two-short format.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Spliced}}'' also follows the two-short format.
* ''Disney/OneHundredAndOneDalmatians: The Series'' used the Two Shorts format most of the time.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheWeekenders'' used the two shorts format.
* Most of the early Creator/HannaBarbera comedy shows were [=ABC=]. ''WesternAnimation/TheHuckleberryHoundShow'', their first half-hour series, was the TropeMaker for the format.
** This format persisted into the 1980s, with ''TheKwickyKoalaShow''.
* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' did this with a Halloween special, wherein they re-created three movies based on Creator/StephenKing novels with the Family Guy characters. They did ''Film/StandByMe'', ''{{Misery}}'', and ''TheShawshankRedemption''. The surrounding material involved Peter introducing them, and reminding us all that Creator/StephenKing is the greatest author of all time.
* ''WesternAnimation/MaryokuYummy'' does the two stories format.
* Since 2010, most Creator/CartoonNetwork shows have had episode premiere as {{Quarter Hour Short}}s or TwoShorts with one being new, then aired as TwoShorts for re-runs.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'' follows the two shorts format, with the exception of three episodes.
* ''WesternAnimation/PepperAnn'' mostly uses two shorts, but there are some episodes (like "Ziterella" and "The Environmentals") where it's just one episode.
* ''WesternAnimation/TimeSquad'' mostly had two shorts (much like most other original Creator/CartoonNetwork programming under the "Cartoon Cartoons" brand, 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.")
* ''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.
* Every show aired on WesternAnimation/KideoTV, which included ''WesternAnimation/TheGetAlongGang'', ''WesternAnimation/RainbowBrite'', ''Anime/{{Ulysses 31}}'', ''WesternAnimation/LadyLovelylocks'', and ''WesternAnimation/{{Popples}}''. When the shows were re-run on their own and released on VHS, they each became two stories.
** ''Popples'' is the only exception. Some tapes had up to six episodes!
* ''The WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry Comedy Show'' uses the A-B-A format. The B portion features [[TexAveryMGMCartoons Droopy's]] adventures, with Slick Wolf as the antagonist and other Creator/TexAvery characters in supporting roles.
** A later series, ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerryKids'', started off using the A-B-A format, with ''Tom and Jerry'' as the A and either Droopy or Spike and Tyke as the B. As it went on, however, the producers stopped using the format and just put together three shorts at random, though there was usually at least one Tom and Jerry short.
* ''WesternAnimation/DanielTigersNeighborhood'' airs in the two-shorts format. Most of the time, the episodes will have the same theme. "Prince Wednesday Goes to the Potty/Daniel Tiger Goes to the Potty" and "Thank You, Grandpere Tiger!/Neighborhood Thank You Day" are two examples of this.
* ''WesternAnimation/JakeAndTheNeverlandPirates'' aired in a three-shorts format, but unlike most shows, the B segment wasn't in the middle. Two Jake segments aired first, and the B-segment, a Neverland Pirate Band music video, aired last.
* ''The All-New {{Popeye}} Hour'' (Hanna-Barbera, 1978) followed an AABCA pattern. A was a standard Popeye cartoon, B was "Popeye's Treasure Hunt" (later "Popeye's Sports Parade"), and C was "Dinky Dog".
* ''FanboyAndChumChum'' used Two Shorts
* ''TheMightyB'' used Two Shorts for each 22-minute episode, except for specials.
* ''WesternAnimation/SanjayAndCraig'' uses Two Shorts
* ''Rabbids Invasion''
* ''The Scooby & Scrappy-Doo/Puppy Hour'' had Three Shorts as the first half of the program, with two episodes of ''Scooby-Doo and Scrappy-Doo'' and one of ''Scrappy and Yabba-Doo'', with all of the second half dedicated to Creator/RubySpears' ''The Puppy's New Adventures''.
* ''[[WesternAnimation/ThomasAndFriends Storytime With Thomas]]'' was ABA with ''WesternAnimation/TheMagicAdventuresOfMumfie''. Each episode would also have a Thomas song or a segment recorded at a Day Out With Thomas event at the beginning.
** It's worth noting that Mumfie itself was aired in an ABA format in the [=USA=] on Fox Family and on NickJr in the [=UK=]. The B segment was Mumfie Melodies, a song compliation. Only three of these segments were made.
