* ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibleHulk'' has "Helping Hand, Iron Fist", which served to this for the ''WesternAnimation/IronMan'' episode "Hulkbuster", with Tony and Bruce already knowing each other (including both acting as a SecretKeeper for the other's secret identity), Tony trying to help Bruce cure himself of the Hulk, and Tony and Rhodey sporting tweaked versions of their season 2 designs.

* The ''WesternAnimation/MyLifeAsATeenageRobot'' episode "Raggedy Android" is about Dr. Wakeman making a suit that could disguise [[RidiculouslyHumanRobot Jenny]] as a human, but [[FlawedPrototype doing such a rushed job]] that people were far more scared of it than Jenny. "Return of Raggedy Android" centered on a newer version of the Exo-Suit that actually worked [[GoneHorriblyRight and far too well]]. The latter had a SequelHook for ''another'' possible SequelEpisode (the Exo-Suit was still alive and took Mr. Mesmer as a new host) [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse which was never resolved on-screen]] (though Mr. Mesmer was later shown to be fine, implying it was dealt with offscreen)[[note]]there actually was a plan for a third episode, in which the Exo-Suit kidnaps Brad and threatens to kill him if Jenny does not surrender herself to its control but Nickelodeon executives rejected it for being too disturbing[[/note]].

Added DiffLines:

** "Icy Nights" and "Icy Nights II" both involve Ice Bear facing the same antagonist.


** ''Operation C.A.K.E.D'' (which were all named with a number at the end, save S.I.X) dealt with the K.N.D confronting the Delightful Children and trying to take their birthday cake away from them [[spoiler: Only failing in the the sixth one due to some clever manipulation by the [=DCfdtL=].]] Likewise the final episode, Operation I.N.T.E.R.V.I.E.W.S, was centered around this.

** [[Recap/StevenUniverseS2E12WeNeedToTalk "We Need to Talk"]] is a direct follow-up to [[Recap/StevenUniverseS2E5StoryForSteven "Story for Steven"]], both {{Whole Episode Flashback}}s centered on Greg and Rose. [[Recap/StevenUniverseS3E16GregTheBabysitter "Greg the Babysitter"]] is a third set later still, though the focus is a bit more on Greg specifically.
** [[Recap/StevenUniverseS1E20CoachSteven "Coach Steven"]] centers on Garnet and Amethyst fusing, inspiring anxiety (and a song) from Pearl until their fusion goes out of control and Pearl has to stop her. [[Recap/StevenUniverseS2E14CryForHelp "Cry for Help"]] starts with Garnet deciding to fuse with Pearl instead of Amethyst for a similar task, causing Amethyst to experience similar feeling (and also a song), [[spoiler:but their fusion goes wrong [[AddictiveMagic in a different way]]]].
** [[Recap/StevenUniverseS3E1SuperWatermelonIsland "Super Watermelon Island"]] is not only a sequel to [[Recap/StevenUniverseS1E34WatermelonSteven "Watermelon Steven"]], it is also part of the resolution of two separate {{Story Arc}}s ([[spoiler:Malachite and the Cluster/Peridot's redemption]]). [[Recap/StevenUniverseS5E27Escapism "Escapism"]] returns to the Watermelon Steven's island, but it's more of a backdrop as Steven is there for incidental reasons.
** The plot of [[Recap/StevenUniverseS3E11BeachCityDrift "Beach City Drift"]] is kicked off when Kevin, the guy who harassed Steven and Connie in [[Recap/StevenUniverseS1E37AloneTogether "Alone Together"]], reappears, causing them to try to get back at him. In [[Recap/StevenUniverseS5E10KevinParty "Kevin Party"]], he comes back again and invites them to a party, which they use as an opportunity to reconnect when they'd spent the last few episode not speaking to each other.
** [[Recap/StevenUniverseS1E23MonsterBuddies "Monster Buddies"]] ends with Steven hoping he'll find some way to help a gem monster he befriended. [[Recap/StevenUniverseS3E14MonsterReunion "Monster Reunion"]] begins with Steven discovering that his healing powers still work, and he partially succeeds in using them for just such a task.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'': The Season 3 episode "The Ricklantis Mix-up" serves as a direct sequel to the season 3 premiere, "The Rickshank Redemption". In the latter episode, Rick broke out of prison and, in the process, pitted his two greatest enemies--the Galactic Federation and Citadel of Ricks--against each other, with both sides suffering heavy casualties and massive damage. The former episode then shows how the Citadel and the Ricks and Mortys living there have been repairing and recovering from the damage and what life has been like for them since. "Ricklantis Mix-up" also serves as a more indirect sequel to Season 1's "Close Rick-Counters of the Rick Kind", in that [[spoiler:the true villain of that episode, Evil Morty, got away scot-free; here, we find out what he's up to now when he's revealed to be the newly-elected President of the Citadel]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/BobsBurgers'': The season one "Sexy Dance Fighting" was about Bob butting heads with Jairo, a handsome capoiera instructor who was stealing Tina's time and attention. In the season six episode "Sexy Dance Healing", Jairo tries to make amends after Bob injures himself.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'': TheTag for "The Chronicles of Meap" consisted of an episode trailer for "Meapless in Seattle", which the creators had not intention of making. Unfortunately for them, the idea of revisiting Meap and Mitch got so popular that it led to the production of "Meapless in Seattle". Likewise, "Meapless" also ended with a fake trailer in the tag, this time with the narrator expressly declaring that they have no intentions to put these snippets together for a future episode.
** "Meapless in Seattle" also expands on the B-Plot of "It's About Time", which saw Doofenshmirtz fighting a new nemesis, Peter the Panda, like he's having an affair in his relationship with Perry the Platypus. Doof, Perry, and Peter's relationship is expanded further in "Lost in Danville", in which Doofenshmirtz meets Professor Mystery, [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything the other evil scientist]].
** "Tales From the Resistance: Back to the 2nd Dimension" is set 2 months after the MadeForTVMovie and follows the lives of the second-dimension characters since Doof-2's defeat. It especially follows up on a DeletedScene that introduced Vanessa-2, and her impaired teenage social life as her father banishes any guy who tries to ask her out.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/ReadyJetGo'':
** "Asteroid Belt Space Race" is a sequel to "Space Race", as it focuses on the rematch that Celery and Zucchini promised to have at the end of the latter episode, this time with Eggplant and Zerk involved.
** "Racing on Sunshine" is a sequel to "Kid-Kart Derby", and takes place one year after said episode.
** "Lone Star 2 - Rocket Kids!" is a sequel to "Lone Star", hence its title.
