Recap: Community Webisodes
features several short series of webisodes:
- "The 5 A's" is a series of informational videos extolling the high points of Greendale, hosted by Dean of Admissions Pat Isakson.
- "A/V Department" is a series of student films by Abed, specifically "Six Candles" from "Introduction to Film" and two episodes of "Community College Chronicles", an amateur sitcom featuring caricatures of the study group.
- "Office Hours" provides a peek into the life of Dean Pelton outside of the study group as he provides other students with advice during his office hours.
- "The Spanish Video Assignment" is a two-parter featuring Abed and Starburns's video project for their Spanish 101 class. Starburns plays Starburns El Star Prince while Abed plays Starbrows in a quirky, kitschy sci-fi movie. Senor Chang fails the pair for not hewing closely enough to the prompt, but allows them to shoot a sequel for make-up points—provided Chang gets to star as antagonist Seņor Tigre.
- "Study Break" is a three-part series of mini-episodes showing the group's activities during 90-second study breaks mandated by Annie. These were included on the Season 1 DVDs.
- "Abed's Master Key", a series of animated shorts taking place over the season 3 hiatus.
- "Community Airing Someday" is a short video made by the Community cast as a special present for the fans. It was put online after Community's scheduled air date of October 19th was put off and the series was put on an indefinite hiatus (although a February 7th airdate was scheduled before too long).

The Community webisode series "Community Airing Someday" provides examples of:
- Audience Murmurs: Troy and Abed's chatter at the very start. Troy's filler chatter of choice is "red leather, yellow leather".
- Biting-the-Hand Humor
- Continuity Nod:
- Chang is wearing one of the Evil Goatees.
- Annie identifies as a long-time viewer, some time co-host of "Troy and Abed in the Morning".
- Everyone Join The Party: The study group members agreeing with the October 19th mindset. First Troy and Abed, then Shirley, then Annie, and finally, the rest of the cast.
- Flashmob: Chang, apparently.
- Hope Spot: "Troy and Abed airing someday!"
- Insane Troll Logic: The Powers That Be and their struggle where to put October 19th, followed by their explanation that October 19th is a state of mind rather than a date.
- Not so Above It All: Jeff and Pierce join in with the "October 19th" saying in the end.
- Take That:
- Really, the entire clip is just one to NBC for pushing the show from it's scheduled premiere date until mid-season.
- "What powers that be? It's just the two of you pretending to have a show." This sort of reminds you of how NBC treats Community and its staff.
- The Dean saying, "Guys! Annie's Boobs wanted their own show and I said yes!" is a definite Take That at NBC for their show Animal Practice.
- Trailers Always Spoil: Somehow, Chang is back at Greendale & on friendly terms with the Dean & Study Group, despite his attempted takeover of the school & nearly killing everyone when he tried to burn down the Records Room..
