Animated Anthology
Animated series featuring a collection of short subjects. Often uses recycled material that was originally intended for an adult, movie-going audience and can result in controversy and censorship (e.g., All the Warner Brothers cartoons from the 1930s to 1950s that were recycled on the various Bugs Bunny shows).

Recent shows that are made for the anthology format can vary the relative lengths of the shorts under their umbrella, and can vary which short series are shown episode to episode. For a more rigid structure, see Three Shorts, a variant on this format.

Note that modern, packaged AA shows use the conventions and devices of Sketch Comedy quite liberally. Shows of this type occasionally devote their entire time slot to one single story, or do the entire show with a single theme.
