** Although Boomerang started showing split screen credits as of 2015, but only when it's for the newer cartoons, such as Wabbit, Be Cool, Scooby Doo!, etc. On older shows, such as ''WesternAnimation/GarfieldAndFriends'', the credits are sped up.

Added DiffLines:

*** At the end of the premiere of "Now We're Only Falling Apart", the credits appeared in tiny white lettering at the lower-left part of the screen before it ended. This is the first time this type of "credit crawl" has been used on ''Steven Universe'', though Cartoon Network has done it for other shows.
*** The tiny white lettering-style credits was also used for episodes aired during the "Every Steven Ever" marathon on August 31 and September 1, 2019.


* One of YTV's first credits commercials for ''Series/MalcolmInTheMiddle'' was oddly meta, and displayed the credits for the show, with the narration "Don't look at those credits, look at these credits!" And then asks what a Key Grip is. A more proper commercial that actually describes the show was later made.

And then asks what a Key Grip is. Made worse that these were usually aired during the Bionix block, where anime aired, meaning that the first parts of many ending themes were cut off for the OverusedRunningGag. A more proper commercial that actually describes the show was later made.


Added DiffLines:

* Completely averted on Creator/{{Teletoon}}, which never did this trope, which only further begs the question why they never aired late-night anime.


** A rare example from a DVD of ''Anime/TheGirlWhoLeaptThroughTime'' which had a tremendous amount of space to write translated credits without the need to wipe clean the Japanese credits; Creator/{{Bandai}} chose instead to write tiny lines of translated text running parallel to the Japanese credits in the opening part of the movie.

** ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' has [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic beautiful end credits music....]] that is completely skipped over whenever it is broadcast. Like the previous two examples, most fans consider it a waste on the network's part. The outro theme frequently changes as time goes on, revealing itself to be a full-length song called "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tS38ywgJ24w Love Like You]]" when all the sections are put together, and is story-related. Cartoon Network still doesn't air it. This became a problem when the season 3 finale aired, as the song underscores an especially moving scene that goes to credits as the song finishes for the first time with the last line. When pushed back, it's quite jarring as it cuts off.

The lack of credits also ruins the scene for fans who don't know of the ending, as the song playing in full during the show doesn't invoke as emotional of an impact if you haven't been hearing tidbits for three seasons.

Added DiffLines:

** When Adult Swim aired Adventure Time for a couple weeks in February 2019, it sadly suffered from credits pushback. You were excepting Island Song to play at the end, but nope, they have to show the credits as an episode is about to finish.

** Cartoon Network is also doing this with ''WesternAnimation/TheLooneyTunesShow''. Since the show tends to pay homage to classic ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'', one of the characters takes their place behind the [=WB=] shield and waves to the audience as part of a closing CouchGag. Is Porky just saying "ThatsAllFolks" or making one last joke for the audience? You'll only find out if you get the [=DVDs=] or digital downloads, because the network has drowned him out and shoved them to the side so they can get in yet another plug for ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' or ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'', as if, somehow, you are unaware of those shows' existence.
** Speaking of which, ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' ironically itself has ending credits completely skipped over unless on DVD or video on demand. And what really sucks is the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UnWDXrnquPI credits]] are [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic pretty awesome]]. Same thing with ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow''.

** Another exception is ''Series/The700Club'' which still shows the standard full credits because the contract with Pat Robertson (who founded the network as CBN Cable) requires the program to be shown with absolutely no editing whatsoever.

** Now the credits are running on the bottom third of the screen ''during the last minute of a show''. In this way, it looks horribly tacky and distracting. Not only that, they now just show tiny audio-less clips of the {{Vanity Plate}}s over the last couple of seconds on whatever show it is, instead of preserving them like they used to. And you can't even read the credits anyway, since they are tiny, fuzzy, and whiz by at a really fast pace.

** Sadly, the same thing can be said all newer animation airing on Disney Channel starting in 2018- both Disney made and non-Disney made ones-, NO EXCEPTIONS. ''WesternAnimation/BigCityGreens'' gets affected the most with this of all the animated shows, due to having a good ending song that only gets partially heard at the very end of the credits due to this trope.

** Conversely, the credits for the new ''[[WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars Clone Wars]]'' series are pushed to the bottom of the screen. When it aired on Adult Swim, nothing showed up top except a black box as Adult Swim ''[[AvertedTrope doesn't]]'' use credits pushback normally. So the credits for this show are designed like that?

* The American Creator/{{Syfy}} did this to the anime ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'', covering up the ending theme in the process. As they did to ''all'' their anime, and probably all their live action programs as well.

** On the sixth episode of season 5, his footage for the end credits was someone's arse shaking with googly eyes stuck on it, so when the BBC put in a continuity announcement (which they did) it looked like the butt was talking. In the original airing, the continuity announcer villainously stated they could squeeze the footage and so they did, but it still made the ass below look like it was pitching an episode of ''Crooked House'' above, so either way it was a win-win situation. After another broadcast where another continuity announcer sounded incredibly embarrassed and offended by this (the poor sod had had this sprung on her with no warning) yet did her best to laugh it off, [=BBC2=] repeats later let the credits run without commentary. The {{aesop}} to creators is clear: talking arses prevent Credit Cropping.

** Really horrible with some shows, like ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'', who would occasionally have hilarious gag audio over the end credits. Thanks to the commercial, the credits are also muted, killing that joke.

** When ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'' aired its sneak peek on Disney Channel, the credits sequence was shrunken down into a tiny box at the bottom, while a commercial for one of those kid sitcoms played in a large box at the top. This caused viewers to miss out on a large portion of the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mJKqtEa6DU8 credits song]] until the series' official premiere on Disney XD. Thankfully the later airing of the episodes on both Disney Channel and XD do keep the end credits (Mostly after coming from the last break of the show), one of the reasons for it staying because the ending credits are ''really good''.
