Tear Jerker: Television Channels
- On June 12, 2009, all television stations in the United States switched from the NTSC analog format to an all-digital signal. Many stations around the country chose to mark the occasion by airing short pieces in the final moments before the switch.

- Cartoon Network's tribute bumpers to William Hanna and Chuck Jones when they died.
