* ''WesternAnimation/FillyFuntasia'' has these at the start of each episode.



to:

* ''WesternAnimation/TheDisneyAfternoon'': During the original syndicated run, preview clips of the remaining shows in the block would play at the conclusion of one show prior to next commercial break.


* In at least one instance, ''WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland'' did a preview for next week's all new episode... before this week's all new episode had ended. Being that TDI involves people being voted off, well, now one knew some of the people who were safe. Way to go, TDI.

* ''Series/HillStreetBlues'' used both PreviouslyOn and Precaps simultaneously. "Previously On ''Hill Street Blues'' [a few scenes from previous episodes]. Tonight on ''Hill Street Blues'' [new scenes]."

* ''Series/HillStreetBlues'' used both PreviouslyOn and Precaps simultaneously. "Previously On ''Hill Street Blues'' [a few scenes from previous episodes]. Tonight on ''Hill Street Blues'' [new scenes]."" Eventually they dropped the Precaps to reduce the amount of clutter at the top of the show.



to:

* ''WesternAnimation/MightyMouseTheNewAdventures'': Episodes began with a 30-second montage of scenes from the two 11-minute segments contained within. Strangely, this was retained on the show's DVD release.


* ''Series/PoliceStory'' showed scenes from the episode of the day as part of the overall intro to the show, which was one of the first "short" themes, which in itself was a forerunner to today's program intros.

* ''Series/AndiMack'' uses this trope combined with OnTheNext as its ending credits for the next episode preview.


* More recent episodes of ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' start with a scene from the middle of the episode, essentially making every episode into a HowWeGotHere.

to:

* For its first two seasons, ''WesternAnimation/DragonTales'' had these, and actually did two on each thirty minutes, one per 11-minute segment. Every segment was preceded by an announcer saying "Coming up next on Dragon Tales" followed by a clip show of the episode, often giving away what the main conflict was about to be. Starting with the third season these were completely axed from the show, and even retroactively removed from the first two, which puts them in the territory of KeepCirculatingTheTapes.
* Both of ''Literature/TheBerenstainBears'' cartoon adaptations employed these. The 1985 series would run one at the beginning of every episode, previewing both segments that would make up a half hour; these were cut from home video releases, leading to some who grew up on the show through that route unaware that it ever had these. The 2003 series on Creator/PBSKids also had these, but rather than previewing both segments prior to the opening, they would only preview the next segment, and would do it for both, similar to the ''Dragon Tales'' example above.


* ''TransformersVictory'' used previews.

** ''{{Persona 3}} FES'' actually has two different intros - the one from the original game and the one made for FES (which spoils bits of "The Answer"). The two alternate each time you go back to the title screen.

* Many episodes of ''TheFlintstones'' had, at least for some airings, a seemingly random scene from the episode run before the episode begins. Later viewers unaccustomed to the practice watching decades-old reruns on Creator/CartoonNetwork were probably confused to no end by this.
