1[[quoteright:350:[[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/s_all_folks_8012.jpg]]]]˛˛->''"Th-th-th-th-[[ThatsAllFolks that's all, folks]]!"''˛-->-- '''WesternAnimation/PorkyPig''', ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes''˛˛An element that appears at the conclusion of [[OnceAnEpisode every episode]], chapter, or StoryArc. It can be [[CatchPhrase dialogue]], [[SoOnceAgainTheDayIsSaved narration]], or {{Paratext}}. Either way, it informs the audience that the episode/arc is over, without resorting to a generic "TheEnd" or "ToBeContinued..." title card.˛˛For some viewers, OnTheNext and ClosingCredits tend to function like this (even though that's probably not the intent of the creators). OhCisco is the variation that ends every ep with a joke, which may lead to {{everybody laugh|sEnding}}ing. May include [[OnTheNextEpisodeOfCatchPhrase a catchphrase]].˛˛A SubTrope to OncePerEpisode and SuperTrope to SoOnceAgainTheDayIsSaved. Shows, especially aimed at young children, often end with a WrapUpSong.˛----˛!!Examples:˛˛[[foldercontrol]]˛˛[[folder:Advertising]]˛* Creator/{{CBS}}'s Saturday morning block in 1987:˛-->"That's a wrap!" (...right here on CBS! [Yeah!])˛** A similar version was used during the following season:˛-->"See you next Saturday!" (...here on CBS! [Yeah!]) "That's a wrap!"˛* Creator/PBSKids block in the 1990's:˛-->'''P-Pals:''' (singing) This is, PBS! Woo-hoo-hoo! (P-Pet barks)˛[[/folder]]˛˛[[folder:Anime and Manga]]˛* Many anime shows have the ending theme start to fade in during the last scene.˛** ''Anime/FullmetalAlchemist''. The only exception is one episode in which [[spoiler:Maes Hughes dies]]; this episode ends with [[spoiler:his funeral]] and the credits roll under the minimal brass and drum stings that open the Amestris {{leitmotif}}.˛%%** ''Manga/HoneyAndClover''...˛%%** ''Manga/OuranHighSchoolHostClub''.˛** ''Manga/BlackLagoon'', except for episode 15, which changed the ending theme to [[spoiler:"The World of Midnight."]]˛%%** ''Anime/KidouTenshiAngelicLayer''.˛%%** ''Manga/{{Loveless}}''.˛%%** ''Manga/KannazukiNoMiko''.˛%%** ''Anime/ShatteredAngels''.˛** ''Anime/MaiHime'' and ''Anime/MaiOtome'', except for the endings of the two major {{Story Arc}}s in each.˛** ''Anime/FushigiYuugi''. [[spoiler:When Nuriko dies, however, his character song "Kaze no Uta" is used.]]˛** ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED'' and its sequel series ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny Destiny]]''.˛%%** ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam00''˛%%** ''Manga/MarmaladeBoy''˛%%** ''Manga/AyashiNoCeres''˛%%** ''Manga/FruitsBasket''˛%%** ''Anime/DiamondDaydreams''˛%%** ''Manga/{{Nana}}''˛** ''Manga/CityHunter'' ends on a stylized freeze frame of City Hunter (and the client sometimes) with the music coming up.˛%%** ''Anime/HellGirl''˛** The ''[[Anime/MagicUsersClub Mahou Tsukai Tai!]]'' {{OAV}}s. Anime ''really'' likes doing this.˛%%** ''Anime/NerimaDaikonBrothers''˛%%** ''LightNovel/{{Toradora}}''˛%%** ''Manga/HikaruNoGo''˛** ''Manga/{{Mushishi}}''. With a ''different song every episode''.˛** ''Manga/KodomoNoOmocha'' starts the ending theme at the beginning of whatever revelation or confrontation the episode [[CliffHanger will end on]]. Many fans have made a game of seeing who can predict exactly when the music will start.˛%%** ''F-Zero: Legend of Falcon''˛%%** ''Manga/FairyTail''˛* From ''Anime/SpaceBattleshipYamato'': "Hurry Star Force[[note]]This name does not exist in the original Japanese version. They were simply the ship's crew.[[/note]], [[ExactTimeToFailure there are only___days left to save the Earth...]]"[[note]]Some episodes used variations, but would always indicate how many days were left.[[/note]]˛* ''Manga/KamenNoMaidGuy'' has the countdown to Naeka's birthday.˛* Episodes of ''Anime/CowboyBebop'' ended with a small text slogan on a black background; most episodes ended with "See You Space Cowboy..." Certain episodes that were dramatically significant ended differently, usually with a line that indirectly related to the character development that had occurred. [[Music/TheBeatles "You're Gonna Carry That Weight"]] was used at the close of [[spoiler:the final episode after Spike and Vicious (possibly) kill each other]].˛** The best subversion was in the episode with Andy, a literal Space Cowboy. At the end of the episode, after he's been defeated, he shows up again, now a samurai. Sure enough, the ending says "See you Space Samurai..."˛* ''Anime/TheBigO'' ended with a black-and-white text card, reading either "We Have Come To Terms" or "No Side," depending on the results of the negotiations in the episode, or "ToBeContinued" for a multi-part story. The holiday episode used "Merry Christmas" instead.˛** Interestingly, Season 2 was a completely uninterrupted string of "To Be Continued"'s all the way to the last episode of the season (and thus, the series). The very last frame of the show finally gives us "We Have Come To Terms" (yeah, sure, I [[MindScrew guess you can call it that, show]]).˛* ''Manga/DaaDaaDaa'' has Wannya writing on his electronic diary.˛* ''Almost'' entirely done in ''Anime/CodeGeass'', as virtually every episode of both seasons ends with some form of a cliffhanger (and on top of that, a decent percentage of the cliffhangers involve screwing over/complicating the protagonist's plans in some way).˛* Every episode of ''Anime/{{Hamtaro}}'' would end with Laura saying that it had been a great day, that the next day would be even better, and Hamtaro squeaking in agreement.˛* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' does the "ToBeContinued..." sign at the end of every episode on the corner of the screen. The [[TheVoice narrator]], at least dub-wise, always says some sort of speech relating with the last scene to overlap with this.˛** Actually, this is a somewhat-regular occurrence in anime (and other Japanese TV shows as well) with continuing stories (i.e., it doesn't always happen). Each episode until the finale will say "Tsuzuku" (which means "To Be Continued). Once a show reaches the final episode, it will then say "Owari" ("[The] End").˛** A variation of the above occurs in ''Manga/OnePiece''. The first two episodes had "TSUZUKU" in a large font. All episodes thereafter say "TO BE CONTINUED" in English with big letters.˛* Every episode of ''Anime/TransformersSuperGodMasterforce'' ended with the narrator exclaiming "Now, you too use the Masterforce to TRANSFORM!"˛* In ''Manga/HidamariSketch'', Yuno (or any character who's the center of the episode's story from the second season) got a FuroScene reflecting that episode's events at the end of each episode.˛* ''[[VideoGame/HarukanaruTokiNoNakaDe Harukanaru Toki no Naka de - Hachiyou Shou]]'' not only has the EndingTheme fade-in thing, but also uses the time between the start of the fade-in and the start of the actual ending sequence to put on the screen a ''tanka'' poem that somewhat reflects the events of the episode. This effect doesn't change even when the default ending song gets [[ImageSong replaced]] in some of the [[ADayInTheLimelight character-centered episodes]]; the only time it gets altered is the series' finale, where the ending song plays over the next-to-the-last scene, and the poem appears at the very end of the episode.˛* ''Literature/TheTatamiGalaxy'' features a sequence at the end of every episode except the final one to signify the continuation of the GroundhogDayLoop by having the main clock of Watashi's university rewinding and the events of the episode flashing by, to be immediately followed by the ending theme.˛* About every short episode of ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' ends with "To be continued... maybe".˛* Each episode of the ''Manga/NonNonBiyori'' anime, with the exception of the last of each season, ends with two of the main cast standing between "That's all for today" and bowing towards the screen.˛* At the end of the majority of episodes in ''Anime/KirbyRightBackAtYa'', a star-shaped closing iris pans in onto Kirby, who is usually doing a happy pose. There is also a tune that plays with it.˛** Later episodes add a short skit afterwards, which is a few seconds long and changes every episode. These are removed in the dub.˛* The many iterations of the beloved anime/manga ''Manga/TensaiBakabon'' usually ends its segment with Papa turning to the camera and saying “koredeiinoda!” Or, “it’s going to be alright!” when in a heated situation.˛* ''Manga/{{Mahoromatic}}'' generally has sweet and light-hearted storylines, but there's a tragic undercurrent running through the series which is reinforced at the end of every episode, where we get a title card telling us how many days Mahoro has left to live.˛* In ''Manga/KaguyaSamaLoveIsWar'', chapters normally end with the narration giving the results of the current BattleOfWits ([[MultiPartEpisode plots that span multiple chapters]] usually save it until the last one). The anime kept this format, though it happens multiple times per episode due to each one adapting several chapters.˛[[/folder]]˛˛[[folder:Comic Books]]˛* ''ComicBook/XMen'' sometimes has the (X) sigil at the end of an arc to indicate that particular arc has completed.˛* ''ComicBook/PS238:'' "Class dismissed!"˛* ''ComicBook/SuskeEnWiske'': Each album traditionally ends with Wiske winking at the audience.˛* ''ComicStrip/{{Nero}}'': In the color albums almost every album traditionally ends with a waffle feast.˛* ''ComicBook/LuckyLuke'' always ends with Lucky Luke driving off into the sunset while he sings ''"I'm A Poor Lonesome Cowboy"''.˛* ''ComicBook/{{Asterix}}'' always ends with the Gauls having a celebratory feast. And [[BoundAndGagged tie and gag Cacofonix while they're at it]] [[DreadfulMusician lest his music ruins the feast]]. Later on, the Gauls just treat it as tradition. Unless [[ADayInTheLimelight Cacofonix is saving the day]], or if one person cannot make the banquet.˛** In which case, Fulliautomatix, the one who usually handles Cacofonix, is usually the one tied up.˛* Every issue of ''ComicBook/{{Transmetropolitan}}'' ends with a variant on the three-eyed smiley face that represents the Transient movement.˛* Every issue of ''Comicbook/{{Watchmen}}'' ends with an {{epigraph}}, which quotes [[IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming the source of each issue's title]].˛* "You are now leaving ''ComicBook/AstroCity'', please drive carefully."˛** Except for the "Pastoral" issue, which has "Caplinville City Limits - Come Back Soon!"˛** And in issues that are part of a larger arc, it's "Astro City Department of Public Works - Under Construction."˛* With ''very rare'' exceptions, every issue of ''ComicBook/GrooTheWanderer'' would end with a Moral.˛* The last panel of each ''ComicBook/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'' comic has an encircled A in the corner.˛[[/folder]]˛˛[[folder:Fan Works]]˛* In ''Fanfic/TheLegendOfTotalDramaIsland'', every chapter posted to date except for the prologue ends thusly: "The hour was growing late, so Brett's mother left off her tale and suggested that he prepare for bed."˛* Almost every chapter in ''Fanfic/HogwartsSchoolOfPrayerAndMiracles'' ends with the line, "Author's Note: Blessings!" This is sometimes followed by a selection of Bible verses.˛* Each edition of the ''Fanfic/HalloweenUnspectacular'' anthology series ends with a parody of Music/BillyJoel's "We Didn't Start The Fire", performed by [[AuthorAvatar E350]], with lyrics reflecting the stories contained in that respective edition. [[spoiler: The sole exception is the ninth volume, ''This is fine'', which ends with a DownerEnding cliffhanger as [[BigBad the Bus Driver]] succeeds in destroying E350's life.]]˛[[/folder]]˛˛[[folder:Film]]˛* Film/JamesBond movies' endings have evolved since ''Film/DrNo'', but the vast majority (at least pre-[[ContinuityReboot reboot]]) end with a scene of Bond and the BondGirl together, often with a DoubleEntendre OneLiner to close out the movie.˛** Bond movies also nearly always end with the statement during the ending credits: JAMES BOND WILL RETURN.˛*** In the older movies, that statement would include the next movie's name, sometimes incorrectly; ''Film/ForYourEyesOnly'' was originally supposed to follow ''Film/TheSpyWhoLovedMe''.˛** In a documentary about the making of ''Film/TheWorldIsNotEnough'', the makers commented that "You need an ending that's ''like'' 'Bond and the girl escape in a rubber raft while the villain's base blows up', but isn't ''actually'' 'Bond and the girl escape in a rubber raft while the villain's base blows up.'"˛* In the Christopher Reeve-era Film/{{Superman}} movies, he flies off into space every time.˛* Film/HarryPotter has the last line in every film except for the last one, where he shares an exchange with his son, instead.˛* Every ''Film/ScaryMovie'' film ends with someone [[LookBothWays getting hit by a car]].˛[[/folder]]˛˛[[folder:Literature]]˛* Compare the last words from each of the ''Literature/WaysideSchool'' books:˛** ''Sideways Stories From Wayside School'': "Everybody booed."˛** ''Wayside School Is Falling Down'': "Everybody mooed."˛** ''Wayside School Gets A Little Stranger'': "Everybody oohed."˛* ''Literature/{{Sharpe}}'' novels usually end with the title of the book, e.g. ''Sharpe's Tiger'' ends with "It was Sharpe's tiger."˛* Every book in ''Literature/ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents'' ends with a letter to the editor (thoroughly detailing where he may find the manuscript of the next book) and a full page illustration which contained a hint about a certain theme within the next book.˛* Standard {{fairytale}} ending: "And they [all] lived happily ever after [except for ''X'']."˛* Literature/ArabianNights endings are more restrained "They lived happily until there came to them the One Who Destroys All Happiness." (i.e., death) Sweet dreams, kids!˛* Every ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' Watch novel ends with Vimes and the Watch [[MedalsForEveryone being rewarded]] usually by the Patrician, and often in a way that reflects the changing politics of the books:˛** Originally, in ''Discworld/GuardsGuards'', the gag was that the only reward they wanted was a small wage increase, a kettle and a dartboard. (And even then, Sergeant Colon thought they were pushing it.)˛** ''Discworld/MenAtArms'' starts out the same way, before it turns out that the ''reason'' Carrot wants a new kettle is because he plans the Watch's increase to 56 officers (from six), and the reopening of the section houses. Vimes becomes Commander of the Watch and (reluctantly) a knight.˛** In ''Discworld/FeetOfClay'', the Patrician does a [[ArsonMurderAndLifesaving [=McCloud=] Speech]], saying that since Vimes has upset every Guild leader in the city, his wages will have to be increased again. "And I expect they need a new dart-board in the Watch House? They usually do, I recall."˛** In ''Discworld/{{Jingo}}'', Vimes insists there's ''nothing'' the Patrician can offer that will make him accept a Dukedom ("We've got the Watch set up, we've almost got the numbers, the widows and orphans fund is so big the men are queuing up for the dangerous beats, and the dartboard we've got is nearly new!"), before getting caught off-guard by Vetinari's suggestion that the history of Sam's regicidal ancestor might be re-examined. Nobby and Fred, meanwhile, are rewarded by being put in charge of Traffic Control ("A chance to be 'self-financing' and not get shot at.")˛** Since Vimes is still in Uberwald at the end of ''Discworld/TheFifthElephant'', it's Rhys Rhysson, Low King of the dwarfs who rewards the Watch for their aid. This includes the very political aknowledgement of Cheery (an openly female dwarf) and Detritus (a troll) as friends of the Low King. Vimes is given a dwarfish battle-axe, an ironic thing for a king to give a Vimes.˛** At the end of ''Discworld/NightWatch'', Vetinari suggests commemorating the Watchmen who died on the 25th of May, but Vimes shoots this down. He reiterates there's nothing he wants ("[[RunningGag We don't even need a new bloody dartboard!]]"), but the Patrician again catches him off-guard, this time by re-opening the Treacle Mine Road Watch House.˛** ''Discworld/{{Thud}}'' ends with Vimes in Uberwald again. Sybil says that Vetinari would be wondering how to reward him, and he replies "He can go on wondering. I've got everything I want." ... leading to an IronicEchoCut back to the city, where Carrot is telling the Patrician that "Commander Vimes wouldn't settle for anything less" than sixty new officers to join the Watch.˛** Played with in ''Discworld/{{Snuff}}''; the reward scene comes two thirds of the way through the book, complete with Vimes getting a new title [[spoiler: as King of the River for saving ''The Wonderful Fanny'']]. When Vimes and Vetinari have their conversation at the end [[spoiler: the Patrician is ''not'' in a mood to reward him]].˛* ''Literature/TheRiftwarCycle'': "Ah, Arutha, you take all the fun out of life!"˛* In the epilogues (or prologues) of the books of ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' by George R. R. Martin, the P.O.V. character narrating that chapter dies.˛* At the end of every ''{{TabletopGame/Clue}}'' book, Mr. Boddy is supposedly killed.˛* Every book in the ''Literature/SweetValleyHigh'' universe (Twins, High, University, etc), ended with a preview of the next book, as something that may have been hinted at throughout the book's plot (a couple arguing, a person feeling pressured about school/home) now took center stage in the book's final chapter.˛* Every book in the ''Literature/CaptainUnderpants'' series ends with George & Harold shouting "Oh no!" and "Here we go again!". Up until the fifth book this was accompanied by Mr. Krupp being turned back into Captain Underpants and running off but since the 6th book it has always been George Harold, and may a few other characters involved in a ''HereWeGoAgain'' type of ordeal.˛* Every installment of Creator/RosemaryWells's ''Voyage to the Bunny Planet'' books ends with the star character of the book observing the Bunny Planet in the night sky and realizing with delight "It was there all along!"˛* The final chapter of each installment of ''Literature/LockwoodAndCo'' (save the one-off short story ''The Dagger in the Desk'') opens with a newspaper account summarizing the key case of the book. These accounts, however, usually lack key details that have been deemed by the authorities to be too sensitive for public ears, such as [[spoiler:iron magnate John Fairfax being the murderer of Annie Ward]] in ''The Screaming Staircase'', or that [[spoiler:the woman the public knows as Penelope Fittes is responsible for the epidemic of ghosts]] in ''The Empty Grave''. These accounts also provide at least some detail as to Lockwood and Co.'s involvement in the cases, though also usually heavily edited. The lone exception is the fourth book, ''The Creeping Shadow'', in which their involvement is kept entirely secret in an effort to try to protect them, not that it does much good.˛[[/folder]]˛˛[[folder:Live-Action TV]]˛* ''Series/ArrestedDevelopment'': Every episode ends with fake previews for next week that subvert real teasers that reality tv and dramas often use to build interest.˛* ''Series/TheBozoShow'': Every episode ends with ''The Grand March''. It's where audience follows Bozo the Clown to the exit.˛* ''Series/WelcomeBackKotter'': Part of a bookend, where each episode began and ended with Kotter telling [[OhCisco a joke]] (usually ending in a bad pun) about one of his relatives.˛* ''Superior Court'': The 1980s courtroom drama (promoted as bringing "real people, real cases, real drama" through presentations of fictional cases) always ended each story with a "WhereAreTheyNow"-type epilogue, telling viewers what happened to the principal characters of each case. Sometimes, if a major social issue was involved, the narrator told what happened as the result of said case.˛* ''Series/QuantumLeap'' always ended with Sam leaping into a new identity and saying "Oh, boy." The scene would then double as the beginning of next week's show. Most of these scenes contained no connection to the story that had just ended, so that they could be swapped between episodes if the network felt like changing the air order. Some syndication packages have the same ending appended to multiple episodes.˛* In ''Series/ThePrisoner1967'', a photo of Number 6's face rises from a bird's-eye view of the Village. Bars slam shut.˛* ''Series/YesMinister'' almost always (''Jobs For The Boys'' was an exception) ends with a character, usually Sir Humphrey, saying "Yes, Minister" - in an astonishing variety of different intonations. When the title was changed to ''Yes, Prime Minister''...˛* ''Series/TheTraceyUllmanShow'' always ended with Tracey emphatically telling the audience to "Go home!"˛* [[Series/TheCarolBurnettShow Carol Burnett]] always tugged on her ear at the end of her shows.˛** It was a holdover from her days on stage. She did this as a covert way of saying "I love you" to her grandmother.˛* ''Series/KnightRider'' (and probably a lot of 1980s action series) ended with stock footage of the car, and earlier episodes had a narrative epilogue as well.˛* Up until about the start of TheNineties, most {{Sit Com}}s would end on a freeze frame, with the studio audience applauding the episode.˛* The freeze frame was parodied by ''Series/PoliceSquad'', where the credits would roll while the principal characters ''stand really still'', and everything around them continued moving. (Plus, before each freeze frame scene, Drebin would casually rhyme off every criminal caught in the series to date as part of a conversation.)˛* Quite a few series have the credits music kick in a few seconds before the credits. ''Series/DoctorWho'''s electronic "scream" comes to mind.˛** And ''Series/EastEnders''' iconic "Dun-dun, dun, dun, d-d-dun-dun." drumbeats. In fact one episode of ''[=EastEnders=]'' even had the latter two blended together in one episode; when Bradley and Stacey Branning were at a ''Doctor Who'' convention, the "scream" was played as part of the convention 'atmosphere' just before the drumbeats showed up so one segued into the other.˛* ''Series/TheWaltons'' would end with the family telling each other good night.˛* Most episodes of ''Series/{{Sliders}}'' ended with the group sliding into the next world. In the earliest episodes, they tried linking one episode to the next with a ''Quantum Leap''-style tag scene, but the tags couldn't be shuffled between episodes because the characters' clothing needed to match. When the network aired a cliffhanger resolution the week ''before'' the cliffhanger, the producers gave up.˛* Almost every episode of ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' ended with music playing over a shot of the Enterprise sailing through the starfield. This is usually preceded by a bit of banter where Kirk makes a quip about Vulcans, and then Spock retorts with a quip about humans, or vice versa.˛** Most first season episodes of ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' ended with [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2SvAEhiOsv0 Picard or Riker saying "Engage" and the Enterprise departing to bombastic music.]] They dropped this later on.˛* ''Franchise/{{Dragnet}}'' usually ended with the narrator describing the fate of the accused over a shot of the perp looking uncomfortably at the mugshot camera.˛* ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'' ends every episode with a freeze-frame and the show's signature bass-line playing.˛* ''Series/SesameStreet'': Each show ends with the "sponsor" announcement: "''Sesame Street'' was brought to you today by ..." the featured 2 letter(s) and 1 number. Following this was a listing of corporate sponsors.˛** From Season 1 to season 31, They would also end the show with the phrase ''Sesame Street is a production of The Children's Television Workshop!''˛* ''Series/TheElectricCompany1971'': The show used two:˛** During the first season (1971-1972), the last act of each day was the soap opera parody "Love of Chair," followed by "And now, the last word ... " where a word, often having to do with one of the sounds of the day was read.˛** For the remainder of the series (1972-1977), a "next episode" teaser was played instead ("Next time on ''The Electric Company'', the cook says ..." followed by a frozen action shot and a muted "wah-wah"-type sound.) This was omitted on the final episode of each season.˛** In turn, much like ''Sesame Street'', the corporate credits -- a listing of corporate sponsors -- was played. Before the roll, one of the cast members read the following: "The Electric Company is a production of ... the Children's Television Workshop.")˛* Every episode of ''Series/{{NCIS}}'' between "Bete Noire" and the season 1 finale ended with the same shot of Gibbs' computer running a photo database ID search attempting to identify the terrorist from "Bete Noire", signifying Gibbs' obsessive quest to find the mysterious terrorist Ari.˛* Every episode of ''Series/MamasFamily'' ended with an EstablishingShot of the house, and Mama always spoke the last line, which was always a zinger.˛* Almost every episode of ''Series/BostonLegal'' ended with Denny and Allan discussing the episode's Aesop (or lack thereof) over Scotch and cigars on their balcony.˛* ''Series/DoogieHowserMD'' always ends with Doogie typing in his journal about [[AnAesop a lesson he learned]] from the events of the episode.˛* ''Series/TheTwoRonnies'' ended with their catchphrase of "It's goodnight from me..." "...and it's goodnight from him."˛* Most ''Series/TopGear'' episodes end with Jeremy Clarkson saying "...and on that bombshell..." or variants thereof, with few exceptions. (Such as when Clarkson was caught and devoured by a pack of hunting dogs.)˛* ''Series/BeakmansWorld'' always ended just like it began: Don and Herb Penguin give an OhCisco-type joke, then turn off the teevee.˛* The classic '50s sitcom ''Series/TheHoneymooners'' almost always ended with Jackie Gleason's saying to his wife "Baby, you're the greatest" followed by a kiss.˛* With the exceptions being the first part of a two-parter (or the first two parts of the series opener when divided into three parts), every episode of the original ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|1978}}'' series ended with a shot of the fleet and Lorne Greene's voiceover describing the premise of the series.˛--> "Fleeing the Cylon tyranny, the last Battlestar, Galactica, leads a ragtag fugitive fleet, on a lonely quest. A shining planet known as Earth."˛* Every episode of ''Series/TheDailyShow'' ends with a "Moment of Zen," which is usually a funny clip pertaining to something mentioned during the show.˛* ''Series/MadeInCanada'' (generally known elsewhere as ''The Industry'') always ended with a character, usually Richard (Rick Mercer), looking at the camera and saying "I think that went well," usually when something has gone terribly wrong for another character. Alternatively, the character for whom something has gone terribly wrong (usually Victor or Alan) will look at the camera and say, "This is not good."˛* Most shows by Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer conclude with a characteristic musical duet (sometimes with changed lyrics to fit the episode). ''Series/VicReevesBigNightOut'' had "Oh Mr Songwriter," ''Series/TheSmellOfReevesAndMortimer'' had "I Love the Smell..." and ''Series/ShootingStars'' had a reprise of the opening "Welcome to Shooting Stars."˛* Once every episode of ''Series/WhereInTheWorldIsCarmenSandiego'' ends, there's only one more thing that needs to be done, AND YOU KNOW WHAT IT IS?! [[spoiler: "Do it, Rockapella!"]]˛* ''{{Series/Roundhouse}}'' would end every episode with an occasionally random segue into the line "Reprise the theme song, and roll the credits!"˛* ''The Red Skelton Show'': "Good night, and may God bless."˛* On ''Series/TheRedGreenShow'', The Possum Lodge meeting is called. Red gives a risqué message to his wife, and then says "On behalf of me and Harold and everyone else here at Possum Lodge... keep your stick on the ice."˛* ''Series/WonderWoman'' ended episodes on a freeze frame of Lynda Carter smiling.˛* ''Series/TouchedByAnAngel'' ended (and began) with a dove flying around the scene. No matter how the scene started. There's even one in a Snow Globe! An exception to the dove was made if the episode focused on non-Christian characters, such as an episode examining a family's conflicting views towards Judaism, although the camera moving up to look towards Heaven was maintained.˛* ''Series/TheTwilightZone1959'' always ended with an epilogue by series creator Rod Serling concluding with the words "...in the Twilight Zone." or something similar. Serling actually started appearing on screen after the first season finale "[[Recap/TheTwilightZoneS1E36AWorldOfHisOwn A World of His Own]]", in which the character Gregory West broke the fourth wall to talk to him.˛* Most, but not all episodes of ''WesternAnimation/TheBananaSplits Adventure Hour'' ended with a closing skit in which Fleagle would "adjourn" the club meeting; he would usually say "The Banana Splits Club is now officially adjourned," or some other variation.˛* Series/TheMickeyMouseClub: [[SolemnEndingTheme Now it's time to say goodbye to all our company]] [[SpellingSong M-I-C...]] see ya real soon! [[BittersweetEnding K-E-Y...]] [[CatchPhrase Why? Because we like you!]] M-O-U-S-E.˛** The '90s version then cuts into an [[MoodWhiplash upbeat]] DancingTheme.˛* ''Series/JohnnyBago'' sends a letter home to his mother, giving her news about his travels...and the Mafia intercepts her mail, so they also know what he's up to.˛* In the sketch show ''Series/ABitOfFryAndLaurie'', every episode of the last 2 series ended with Creator/StephenFry making a bizarre cocktail and serving it up, after instructing Creator/HughLaurie "Please Mr Music, will you play?" Laurie played the theme tune on the piano (and made trumpet noises with his mouth), and each show concluded with the toast "soupy twist."˛* Frequently occurs on news shows, with the anchor's trademark signoff. Edward R. Murrow's "Good night and good luck," later stolen by Keith Olbermann, who now uses "That's [[Series/CountdownWithKeithOlbermann Countdown]], on this the [[=XXXXth=]] day since the previous president declared Mission Accomplished in Iraq. I'm Keith Olbermann, good night and good luck."˛** As the UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush Presidency started winding down, he'd add, "Congratulations on getting through another day of this crap."˛* ''Series/ColdCase'' has this down to a science. Every episode concludes with a sombre montage which is bound to include:˛** Period music from the same time as the flashback segments of the preceding episode.˛** Shots of the major characters in the case doing things in the present, as both their "present" and "past" selves.˛** The case itself being re-filed in the evidence room, with the word "closed" stamped on it.˛** An apparition of the murder victim (s), seen briefly by one of the detectives (or one of their loved ones) before fading from sight.˛* Many old game shows, especially those produced by Creator/MarkGoodson and Bill Todman, would end with TheAnnouncer signing off for the show over the ending credits, audience applause, and scenes of the winners. For example, "This is Gene Wood speaking for ''Series/FamilyFeud.'' A Mark Goodson Television Production." Substitute name of show and announcer's name as needed. (Occasionally this would be accompanied with a short production or legal note, e.g. "The third contestant on today's show was found to be ineligible and his prizes were forfeited.") ''Series/ThePriceIsRight'' is the only show that still does this.˛** Speaking of ''The Price Is Right'', when Bob Barker was the host, he ended every show since the '80s by imploring people to spay or neuter their pets.˛* At the end of ''Series/KenanAndKel'', Kenan would ask Kel to grab three random items, meet him at a random location, and call him a random nickname. Kel would then end the episode with his trademark, "Awwww, here it goes!"˛* Amanda Bynes ended every episode of ''Series/TheAmandaShow'' by telling the audience, "Well, that's our show. I gotta go ________. See ya!" The blank would always be some bizarre or impossible task, such as "overthrow Canada" or "stir-fry a bikini."˛* ''Series/{{Lost}}'' consistently ended with the word "LOST" in white over a black screen, but for one notable exception: when Season 5 ended [[spoiler:with the explosion of the hydrogen bomb]], it was reversed so that "LOST" was written in black over a white screen.˛* ''Series/{{Charmed|1998}}'': every season ended with a door, mostly that of the Halliwells' house, being telekinetically closed by Prue, by a ghost of a dead Halliwell, like Prue, or just closing. ˛* ''Series/BeyondBeliefFactOrFiction'': Creator/JonathanFrakes would end each story with a pun.˛* Every episode of the BBC sitcom ''Series/TheVicarOfDibley'' (except one) ends with the Vicar telling the verger Alice a joke. Alice usually doesn't get the joke, so the Vicar has to try, unsuccessfully, to explain the punchline. Only one episode does not end with a joke, but in that episode the joke is at the beginning.˛* ''Series/TalesOfTheRiverbank'' would end with the narrator starting to relate an anecdote...˛--> "But that is ''another'' story."˛* Nearly every episode of ''Series/MorkAndMindy'' ended with Mork's report to Orson. ("[[Series/MorkAndMindy Mork]] [[AnAesop calling]] [[TheVoice Orson]], [[CatchPhrase come in, Orson]].") The exceptions are the ChristmasSpecial, the finale of season 3 (which ended with Mork and Mindy confessing their love to one another), and several [[SeasonalRot season 4 episodes]].˛* Every episode of ''Series/PeeWeesPlayhouse'' ended with Pee-Wee riding on his red motor scooter after flying out of his playhouse. Later episodes showed him wearing a red one-eyed monster helmet, and also had him fly past Mt. Rushmore.˛* ''Series/ReadingRainbow'': "[I'll/We'll] see ya next time!"˛* Series/{{Brum}} the sentient car would always return to the museum, and the curator would discover a memento of his latest adventure in the back seat.˛* In ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'', one of the mad scientists would end the show by pushing a button to cut off the transmission. In fact, Dr. Forrester's "Push the button, Frank," became something of a catch phrase. (During season one it was "File this, Larry.") This was dropped when the show moved to Sci-Fi Channel.˛** After the ending credits there was usually a "[[TheStinger stinger]]", a short bizarre scene or quote from the film they watched that episode.˛* The first few episodes of ''Series/TheFallAndRiseOfReginaldPerrin'' ended with a despairing scream from Reginald. This was phased out.˛* ''Series/{{Wipeout 2008}}'': "Good night...and [[BrassBalls big balls]]."˛* "Jesse's got metal to burn and sparks to fly! The next ''Series/MonsterGarage'' challenge [[PunctuatedForEmphasis ...is just...around...the bend!]]"˛* In ''Series/TheAvengers'', Steed and Mrs Peel would depart the area into the distance in whatever conveyance was available or appropriate.˛* ''Series/{{Frasier}}'' ends with 'Tossed Salads and Scrambled Eggs' being played over a scene.˛* ''Series/LambChopsPlayAlong'' "This is the song that doesn't end...yes it goes on and on my friend. Some people started singing it not knowing what it was, and they'll continue singing it forever just because" (repeat!)˛* ''[[Series/BarneyAndFriends Barney]]'' "I love you, you love me, we're a happy family...."˛** Most episodes featured a segment called "Barney Says," where Barney recaps the episode, but it's not nearly as iconic as "I Love You."˛* ''Series/RowanAndMartinsLaughIn'' always ended with Dan and Dick saying goodnight (Dan: "Say goodnight, Dick." Dick: "Goodnight, Dick!"), followed by the joke wall, some blackouts then have the sound of one person clapping during the ending graphics and the NBC snake logo.˛* ''Series/AmericanBibleChallenge'': "If you don't know your Bible, you don't have a prayer!"˛* Every episode of ''Series/TheManShow'' ended with [[{{Gainaxing}} girls jumping on trampolines]] over the credits.˛* [[Series/TheBigComfyCouch "And the clown jumped over the moon!"]]˛** Heyyyyy... [[PunctuatedForEmphasis WHO MADE THIS BIIIIIG MESS?]]˛* ''Series/MrBelvedere'': The titular Mr. Belvedere writing in his journal making observations about his host family.˛* ''Series/ThirdRockFromTheSun'': The family, sitting on a rooftop, discusses what (they think) they've learned about human civilization.˛* Every episode of ''Series/DongYi'' will end with a close-up shot of Dong Yi before cutting into the credits.˛* ''Film/MacGruber'' sketches end with a cry of "[=MacGruber=]!" over a shot of the location exploding.˛* Every episode of ''Series/{{Spooks}}'' ends with a colour-inverted version of the episode's final shot, before (with the exception of season finales) cutting to the OnTheNext.˛* Each ''Series/{{Fortysomething}}'' episode ended with Paul and Estelle going to bed at night.˛* Every episode of ''Series/TwoBrokeGirls'' ends with a counter showing the amount of money the titular characters have saved up to start their cupcake business. It can go up or down depending on what happened in the episode.˛* Most ''Series/{{Cheers}}'' episodes had an abrupt ending -- the last word (typically a {{Punchline}}) was immediately followed by a cut to black.˛** An exception: In one episode, Sam did an old Film/TheThreeStooges trick. Saying "come here, porcupine," he grabbed Rebecca's nose between two fingers of his clenched fist, then slapped his fist away. When she told him that hurt, he said it was all in fun like with the Stooges. She immediately repeated the same trick on him. They cut to black just as her hand connected with her fist. Then there was the sound of a very loud slap. Then Sam yelled, "OW! Hey, the Stooges didn't bleed!"˛** Sometimes, one more line can be heard. In "Death Takes A Holiday On Ice", which ends with Carla heading to the backroom to play a game of billiards. After the cut to black, we hear the cue ball hitting the balls and one falling into a pocket.˛* Nearly every episode of ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'' ends with JD comparing and tying together all the different plot threads in a voiceover, either learning AnAesop or making an observation of some sort. Subverted as often as not in later seasons, but the lack of a summation to make sense of everything usually only occurs in particularly [[DownerEnding bleak]] or [[WhamEpisode jarring]] episodes (for example, "My Lunch").˛* ''Series/KingOfTheNerds'': Each episode concludes with the eliminated contestant marching out of the mansion, as they narrate their last goodbyes and wistful music plays... until one of the hosts taps an iPad, obliterates them the moment before they set foot off the property, and makes a cheesy pun about it.˛* From 1973 to 2001, all but two episodes of ''Series/MisterRogersNeighborhood'' ended with Rogers singing "It's Such A Good Feeling".˛** The two exceptions were opera episodes from TheEighties, where the song was presumably cut for time (they also opened with a TruncatedThemeTune).˛** Before that, from 1968-70, every episode closed with the song "Tomorrow". The 1971 season featured a different closing song ("The Weekend Song") on Fridays, while the 1972 season featured a rotation between "Good Feeling" and the two previous songs.˛* Every episode of ''Series/{{JAG}}'' ended with a freeze frame, usually of one or two of the main characters either smiling or showing a concerned look.˛* ''Series/GoodLuckCharlie'' had Teddy's last entry in the video diary for that episode, which always ended with a Title Drop.˛* ''Series/{{Pyramid}}'': "For now, Creator/DickClark... So long."˛* ''Series/PressYourLuck'': "Until next time, this is Peter Tomarken saying thanks for pressing your luck, bye-bye!"˛* Nearly every episode of ''Series/DuckDynasty'' ends with the Robertson clan gathered around the dinner table, where Phil (or occasionally Willie) prays over the food, followed by Willie narrating the Aesop.˛* ''Series/SingledOut'' always ended with the set [[DancePartyEnding turned into a dance floor open to all of the day's contestants.]]˛* The UK version of ''Series/WhoseLineIsItAnyway'' ended with "It just remains for me to thank (the four panelists), Richard Vranch at the piano, this is me, Clive Anderson, saying goodnight. Goodnight."˛* ''Series/HeeHaw'' always closed with the assembled cast singing a "so long" song. Originally, it was a somber-toned, "We love the time we spend with you...." changed in the last season to a more upbeat, "So long, we sure had a good time..." The credits would then run under a jaunty version of the theme, followed by Cathy Baker poking her head through an opening in the wall and announcing perkily, "That's all!" ˛* Every episode of the Creator/{{Nickelodeon}} version of ''Series/RobotWars'' will give out [[ContentWarning an advisory warning that building a robot is extremely dangerous and should not be attempted without great care]]. ˛* ''Series/SoulTrain'':˛-->'''Don Cornelius''': "That oughta do it for a while, I hope we can do it again on these same stations, and you can bet your last money, it's going to be a stone gas honey! I'm Don Cornelius, and as always in parting, we wish you love...peace...and..."˛-->'''Dancers''': "SOUL!!"˛* Every episode of ''Series/HappyDays'' ends with offscreen singers reprising the last few lines of the theme song ("These happy days are yours and mine, happy days!").˛* "Series/ILoveLucy is a Desilu production."˛* From 1969 to 1974 there was a French Canadian family sitcom where every episode ended with anyone of the characters exclaiming "Quelle famille!" (literally, "What a family!"). The title of the show? You've guessed it.˛** Which makes it also a case of TitleDrop, of ExcitedShowTitle and of FamilyTitle (kinda).˛* ''Series/DeadtimeStories'' has the main characters of the current story, and the two kids who are being read the story, screaming at each other when something scary happens at the end.˛* ''Series/{{Zoboomafoo}}'': At the end of every episode Chris, Martin, & Zoboo would sing the goodbye song "Animal Friend". Chris and Martin would leave animal junction on another adventure and Zoboo would return to the wild.˛* Every episode of ''Series/MidnightCaller'' ended with Jack Killian signing off on his [[ShowWithinAShow radio show]]. And every episode of ''that'' ended "Godnight, America, wherever you are."˛* ''LifeWithElizabeth'' would end with the announcer breaking in with "Say good night to the people.", the actors on screen breaking character and saying "Goodnight!" to the audience and then returning to what they were doing for a few seconds before the closing credits.˛* Every episode for Creator/Studio100's ''Series/KabouterPlop'' ends with Plop saying "Plopper De Plop" at the viewer and his hat would rise up.˛* "...and that will bring this case to a close. That will do it for this edition of ''Series/ThePeoplesCourt'', and remember:˛** If someone is suing you, and you're convinced you did nothing wrong, don't be afraid to stand up for your rights. Go to court."˛** If you are in a dispute with another party, and you just can't seem to work it out, don't take the laws into your own hands, you take 'em to court."[[note]]At first, the first version was used if the defendant won, but in later episodes, the second version was used no matter who won.[[/note]]˛* "''Series/TheJeffersons'' was recorded on tape before a studio audience."˛** Along with many other American sitcoms before and after this one, going well into at least the late 1980s, in most cases with variarions (e.g., "filmed", or "taped" rather than "recorded on tape").˛* ''Series/FixerUpper'' always ends with the couple being shown their new home inside and out, followed by footage of them with their friends and/or extended family having a large gathering inside the house.˛* ''Series/TiereBisUntersDach'': Until season 6, every episode ended with Greta or Nellie (or in one case Pauline) turning to the camera and smiling, followed by a freeze frame.˛* ''Series/KidsCourt'': During the show's closing credits. Host Paul Provenza would ask the kids in the studio audience on what their situation problem is. And would ask "Do you think it's fair or unfair?" And the kids in the studio audience usually reply "UNFAIR!" in unison.˛* Most episodes of ''Series/PrettyLittleLiars'' end with a short "A" POVCam scene.˛* ''Series/TalesFromTheDarkside'':˛-->"The Darkside is always there, waiting for us to enter, waiting to enter us. Until next time, try to enjoy the daylight!"˛* Each Monty Hall era of ''Series/LetsMakeADeal'' would end with Monty doing various "quick deals" with random audience members while the credits are rolling.˛** "(The All-New) Let's Make a Deal is a Stefan Hatos-Monty Hall production! (This is Jay Stewart speaking!)"˛* Preschool series ''Series/TheBigGarage'' had this line from Pump at the end of every episode, as Rusty was called home to Scrapland by Scrap:˛-->'''Pump:''' Oh well, that's it for another busy day at the Big Garage. I'm sure things will start to quiet down now.˛-->'''Scrap:''' Rusty!˛-->'''Pump:''' But not too quiet! (laughs)˛-->'''Scrap:''' Rusty! RUSTY!!!˛* Episodes of ''Series/MopatopsShop'' ended with the big clock in the shop going off, prompting Mopatop and Puppyduck to close the shop.˛* Every ''Creator/MorecambeAndWise'' show ended with the duo doing a (straight and non-comedic) song-and-dance routine to the standard "Bring Me Sunshine" with the credits rolled over them.˛* ''Series/WithoutATrace'' concluded every episode with a blurb on a ''real'' missing persons case, narrated by a cast member, [[http://www.thefutoncritic.com/news/2006/08/08/missing-18-year-old-woman-is-found-after-being-featured-in-a-public-service-announcement-during-the-june-1-broadcast-of-without-a-trace--21990/20060808cbs03/ resulting in at least five people being found]]. (Episodes that aired in foreign countries--Australia, Hong Kong, etc.--featured [[TransatlanticEquivalent their own cases]]). ˛** In one episode, where it turned out that the VictimOfTheWeek had committed suicide, viewers were directed to a suicide hotline. ˛[[/folder]] ˛˛[[folder:Music]]˛* {{Music/Overkill}} ended their first four albums with a numbered part of the Overkill saga (though the last part "Evil Never Dies" wasn't titled as such), and continued it on Immortalis.˛* Music/IronMaiden 's The First Ten Years series always ends with commentary by Nicko on the tracks from the release. A further part discussing "No Prayer For The Dying" was included on the album's US pressing. ˛* All of Music/{{Bathory}}'s early albums have a nearly identical outro track called "The Winds of Mayhem."˛[[/folder]]˛˛[[folder:Newspaper Comics]]˛* In ''ComicStrip/LittleNemo'', Nemo wakes and falls out of bed or is woken up by something in the last panel of every page.˛* Each Sunday edition of ''ComicStrip/{{Heathcliff}}'' ends with "Kitty Korner", which talks about something unusual or otherwise interesting that happens to a cat (and sometimes his / her owner). These are usually based on submissions by readers.˛* ''ComicStrip/{{Marmaduke}}'' has it's own version of this (with dogs, of course), called "Dog Gone Funny". It even made it into Creator/RubySpears' adaptation (which was part of their Heathcliff series[[note]]This series should not be confused with [[WesternAnimation/HeathcliffAndTheCatillacCats the one later made]] by Creator/DicEntertainment in 1984.[[/note]]).˛[[/folder]]˛˛[[folder:Other]]˛* The cassette tape, and CD versions of Disneyland Records' book and record read-along sets usually[[note]]There was at least one variation used for the Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit read-along.[[/note]] end with this:˛-->"That was the end of the story. If you would like to hear it again, (just) turn the tape over / just put the disc back to track one."[[note]]Afterwards, on some read-alongs, the one or two songs from the original record versions can be heard.[[/note]]˛[[/folder]]˛˛[[folder:Pinball]]˛* Many (but not all) pinball games (or at least the [[PhysicalPinballTable physical]] ones played in arcades, etc.) end with a MatchSequence.˛[[/folder]]˛˛[[folder:Podcasts]]˛* Every episode of Podcast/WithinTheWires ends with "you time", where three incongruous and seemingly-random things are suggested for your relaxation (in the first season) or for purchase from the museum gift shop (in the second season).˛--> OK, our time is done. It’s you time now. Time to stop by the museum gift shop. Grab yourself a souvenir book of paintings about '''potato cannons'''. Pick up a poster featuring '''a vulture in a tuxedo'''. And buy a commemorative vase made out of '''baby back ribs'''. (From season 2 episode 2)˛* Every regular episode of ''Podcast/EightiesAllOver'' ends with the Embassy Pictures logo music, followed by the VHS tape being taken out of the VCR and popped into a rewinder, fading out on the sound of it being rewound. This also serves {{Bookends}} to the traditional opening of each episode, which has a tape popped into the VCR and the Play button pushed.˛[[/folder]]˛˛[[folder:Professional Wrestling]]˛* Each of the vignettes leading up to "The American Dream" Wrestling/DustyRhodes' debut in the [[Wrestling/WorldWrestlingEntertainment "WW]] [[ScrewedByTheLawyers [blank]"]] ended with an off-screen vocal (usually the person Dusty just "helped") saying "Hey, aren't you...?"˛[[/folder]]˛˛[[folder:Puppet Shows]]˛* On ''Series/BearInTheBigBlueHouse'', Bear performs the "Goodbye Song" with Luna. He then gives a brief goodbye to the viewer, summing things up for the episode, and turns off the Big Blue House's attic light. He then remembers that he has something else to say, turns it back on, says it, and then turns the light back off.˛* Every episode of ''Series/{{Oobi}}'', including those that leave the title character OutOfFocus, will end with him telling the viewers, "Oobi, you, friends!" before saying goodbye. Children voice will also say goodbye to him.˛[[/folder]]˛˛[[folder:Radio]]˛* The "News From Lake Wobegon" segment of ''Radio/APrairieHomeCompanion'' ends with the monologue, "And that's the news from Lake Wobegon, where all the women are strong, all the men are good-looking, and all the children[[DramaticPause ...]] are above average."˛* "Well, that's all the time we have this week for ''Radio/TheVinylCafe''. Special thanks to ''[musicians and special guests]'' and Anton Szabo for the technical assistance. Dave Amers is the founding producer of ''The Vinyl Cafe'', Louise Curtis is the production assistant, Julie Penner is the music producer, Meg Masters is the long-suffering story editor. ''The Vinyl Cafe'' is produced by Jess Milton. I'm Stuart Maclean, in ''[location]''. So long for now." (CBC Radio)˛** Other than radio talk shows, this is also common in radio sportscasts as well. Even TV sportscasts do it occasionally. In fact, this is common to any radio show since they can't quickly scroll (or whatever) the credits for all to see.˛* ''Radio/CarTalk'' ends with Klick and Klack noting that you've frittered away another perfectly good hour before reading the credits - then reading some [[CreditsGag fake credits]] such as "...Our optimetric firm is [=C.F.=] Eye Care, Our personal chef is Howard M. Burgers, Our researcher is Paul Murky of Murky Research, assisted by statistician Marge Innovera..." and concludes with:˛-->'''Klick''': "And until next time... don't drive like my brother."˛-->'''Klack''': "And don't drive like ''my'' brother!"˛* ''Radio/YoursTrulyJohnnyDollar'' actually used the same line as the ending, the title and the conceit. Johnny Dollar was an insurance investigator, and each episode was an explanation of the expense report he was typing up for his bosses (all of which, of course, had extremely dramatic and entertaining reasons). At the end of the letter/the episode, he would state the total, occasionally commenting that it was unusually low and "I must be slipping!" Then he'd sign the letter "Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar."˛* Most (all?) NPR shows end with the host saying "This…is NPR." In the past it was "This is NPR, National Public Radio." ˛* ''Radio/WaitWaitDontTellMe'' ends with funny predictions from the three panelists, usually escalating some news item from that week's show, followed by Bill Kurtis saying, "And if any of those things happen, panel, we'll ask you about it on ''Wait Wait Don't Tell Me!''"˛[[/folder]]˛˛[[folder:Video Games]]˛* Every ''VideoGame/MarioKart'' game ends with Rainbow Road, which is the hardest track in every game it appears in. ([[VideoGame/MarioKart64 Usually, anyway]]) The retro cups in ''VideoGame/MarioKartDS'' and ''VideoGame/MarioKartWii'' don't close with Rainbow Road, but they do from ''VideoGame/MarioKart7'' onwards.˛* ''VideoGame/PaperMario'' and its sequels had "END OF CHAPTER" followed by a plot summary after the defeat of each major boss.˛** In fact, nearly every Mario game has something like this: Hopping on the pole, playing a card-matching game, or in the 3D games getting a magic star-shaped item signified the end of a normal level, and usually the rescue of some significant being signified the end of the Zone (Toads/Princess in the original, Kings of the Kingdom in the third).˛** ''VideoGame/SuperPaperMario'' also [[spoiler:narrates Timpani/Tippi and Blumiere/Count Bleck's backstory piece by piece]] once each chapter is ended.˛* For the Genesis ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog'' games, the non-final acts of each zone would be concluded by whizzing past a revolving sign that changes from Robotnik/Eggman's face to Sonic's (or another character if Sonic's not the one being used). ''VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles'' maintained this tradition, even when there was a miniboss at the end of these zones, by having the sign fall from the sky after you defeat the miniboss.˛** The final act of each zone would conclude with you opening a capsule of captured animals after the boss fight.˛** ''Knuckles Chaotix'' instead ended every zone by having a giant ring fall out of Dr. Eggman's latest contraption.˛* When a level in ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry'' is cleared, the screen fills with bullet holes and shatters to reveal the ranking screen.˛* Race victories in ''VideoGame/NeedForSpeed: Most Wanted'' are punctuated by a camera zooming in and taking a picture of your car.˛* After important events (For example, saving Mesarthim in Asellus' game, or receiving the gift for a new school of magic in Blue's) in ''VideoGame/SagaFrontier'' ends with a portrait of either the protagonist you're using, or an important character from it.˛* ''VideoGame/{{Okami}}'' ends every boss battle with a victory howl from Amaterasu. (It gets subverted in the battle against Yami when he [[spoiler: doesn't stay down the first time and drains all the power from Ammy, but then Ammy comes back to kick ass anyway]].˛* In ''VideoGame/{{Astal}}'', when the title character clears a level, he does a FistPump and yells "YATTA!!" ([[NonDubbedGrunts even in the English version]]).˛* When Japanese video games released in the U.S. display "owari" (which consists of the hiragana o, wa, and ri) at the end of the credits, it will usually be replaced by "END," in which the three English letters substitute each of the three Japanese kana.˛* Every game in the ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' series ends with the protagonist shouting "OBJECTION!"˛** The second game suggests that the ''player'' shout it into the DS microphone. Of course, you don't have to; just press A at that point and the ending will still play.˛* Every ''Goemon Impact'' boss battle in ''[[VideoGame/GanbareGoemon Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon]]'' (except the last one, being the FinalBoss of the game) ends with Impact punching down the boss at its moment of defeat, then the boss blows up, one of Impact's eyes flashes, then the ''Mystical Ninja'' logo drops down.˛* ''VideoGame/{{Suikoden}}'' games typically end with still screens rattling off every character you recruited for the hero's army, and their fates following the game. Occasionally, these things would reference earlier or later games. In a few instances, depending on the player's actions, the ending text could differ for certain characters.˛* ''Every'' mission in ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' ends with an after action report from the Illusive Man and a snippet of his theme.˛* In ''VideoGame/{{inFAMOUS 2}}'', every time after absorbing a Blast Core, the screen will go black and inform how many miles The Beast is away from your location, and how many Blast Cores is still needed to activate the RFI.˛* Once the final hit is landed in every ''Franchise/MegaMan'' game, the boss explodes, victorious music starts playing, and then Mega Man jumps in the middle of the stage to absorb the power of the Robot, before cutting to a scene that shows what weapon you got. Dr. Wily begs for mercy at the end of each game in the [[VideoGame/MegaManClassic Classic series]].˛** In the ''VideoGame/MegaManX'' series, X or Zero instead stoically watch the spectacular explosions given off by the boss upon defeat, then a victorious fanfare plays. Afterwards, they strike a pose, teleport out and your new ability is explained.˛* In ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry2DiddysKongQuest'' if you land on the target from high enough, it's different depending on the character you control. If its Diddy, he gets a boombox and sunglasses with his hat turned sideways and he starts rapping (in oohs and ahs, as he is a monkey). If it is Dixie, she pulls out an electric guitar and plays a sweet solo. Afterwards, they both run off.˛* Beat a boss in a ''VideoGame/{{Kirby}}'' game? Expect to see two extra Kirbies inexplicably pop up for the [[HappyDance Kirby dance]].˛* In ''VideoGame/TheWalkingDead'' you start off an episode with a "Previously on" and end an episode with a trailer for the upcoming episode. Seeing as Telltale releases most of their games in this style in chapters staggered across a year, this helps as a reminder what actually happened and wets your appetite for the upcoming parts.˛* In the NES game ''Series/GilligansIsland'' After you beat Episode 4, You end up at the ice cream mountain. After your final score result, It ends with caption: ''Will the castaways ever get off this deserted island? Stay tuned....''˛[[/folder]]˛˛[[folder:Web Animation]]˛* Every ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'' cartoon has "Back" and "Again" buttons appear. In addition, the Strong Bad Email cartoons feature The Paper printing off Strong Bad's email address, and the Teen Girl Squad cartoons end with an "iT'S [[EasterEgg O]]VER!" title card.˛* ''WebAnimation/LoreInAMinute'': "Have fun!"˛[[/folder]]˛˛[[folder:Webcomics]]˛* The last page of every ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt'' chapter is marked by [[http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/archive_page.php?comicID=15 the alchemical symbol for antimony]] in the corner.˛* ''Webcomic/{{Jack|DavidHopkins}}:'' "[[http://www.pholph.com/index_a.php?Strip=47 TTFN]]" ("Ta-Ta For Now") at the end of the last strip of a full Arc, but not shorts or other miscellaneous stories.˛* ''Webcomic/AntiheroForHire'': "Phase complete."

A lot of characters also have more individualistic sign-offs, for example:˛** WebVideo/JHouseVlogs: Good Night, J House Out˛** WebVideo/DailyBumps: Every vlog ends with BRYAN OR MISSY telling the viewers to subscribe to their channel followed by them saying Byeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee Boop! And zooms in on a person until it is pitch black˛** WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic: "I'm The Nostalgia Critic, I remember it so you don't have to."˛** WebVideo/BumReviews: "This is Chester A. Bum saying...''change? Ya got change?! C'mon, help a guy out!''" And so forth. This used to be followed be a brief text review from his actor, Creator/DougWalker, saying what he ''really'' thought of the film, until people got curious enough about his opinions that he started doing longer film reviews adjacent to the Bum's. ˛** WebVideo/AskThatGuyWithTheGlasses: "And remember, there's no such thing as a stupid question, until ''you'' ask it." ˛** WebVideo/BadMovieBeatDown: "I'm Matthew Buck, beating down bad movies everywhere."˛** WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall: A quick recap of the comic's major flaws, usually immediately preceded by some variant of "This comic sucks!" ˛** WebVideo/ThatSciFiGuy: The "Sci-Fi Clip of the Week", similar to ''Series/TheDailyShow'''s "Moment of Zen".˛** WebVideo/TheBlockbusterBuster: The movie reviewed getting destroyed.˛* WebVideo/FilthyFrank: "It's Filthy Frank, Muthafucka! It's Filthy Frank, BITCH!" followed by "Let's get some pussy tonight!"˛* ''Website/FiveMinuteDotNet'' sci-fi TV parodies traditionally end with the ship warping off "at LudicrousSpeed." If it isn't a ship-based series, something else will happen at Ludicrous Speed.˛* CausticCritic game reviewers like ''WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd'' and ''WebVideo/TheIrateGamer'' will often finish by destroying the cartridge, either through special effects or by literally breaking it.˛* {{WebVideo/Tabletop}} ends with one scene where Wil talks with the losers on the loser couch, and going up and congratulating the winner. The seasons split the latter scene into two endings. Season 1 had him give a trophy to the winner, then take it back because the studio could only afford one trophy while Season 2 had him give away a certificate. ˛* WebVideo/MatthewSantoro makes a creepy face at the end of all of his vlogs.˛* "[[WebVideo/TheNeedleDrop Anthony Fantano]]. (Artist name). (Album title). ''Forever''."˛* "Next time on {{WebVideo/Game Grumps}}!" - followed by the video turning off like a CRT screen and some light chatter from the Grumps.˛* Nearly every episode of [[https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLy00JW4MMhv2lbxGo41kZG3Frv8-qhDDz Tuesdays with Nick]] ends with "BYE" being screamed to the audience.˛* Most episodes of ''WebVideo/RosssGameDungeon'' end with with Ross hinting at what game will be reviewed next. The hints are deliberately vague and at times very strange, to make it more difficult for the viewers to guess the game.˛-->'''Ross:''' Stay tuned for the HalloweenEpisode, if you wanna see [[VideoGame/CarnEvil a clown get shot in the face]]!˛* Every ''WebVideo/EpicRapBattlesOfHistory'' video ends the same way:˛-->WHO WON?

EPIC RAP BATTLES OF HISTORYYYYY!!˛* Overlaps with SigningOffCatchphrase in ''WebVideo/{{Vsauce}}'' videos: "And as always, thanks for watching."˛* "Frederator loves you."˛* Each ''Podcast/EightiesAllOver'' episode concludes with the Embassy Pictures logo music, followed by the VHS tape being taken out of the VCR and popped into a rewinder, the show fading out on the sound of it being rewound.˛* ''WebVideo/WorldWarTwo'': Every episode ends with Indy thanking their supporters, [[PleaseSubscribeToOurChannel asking for more support]], and pointing at the camera, finishing with "[[SigningOffCatchPhrase See ya next time.]]"˛[[/folder]]˛˛[[folder:Western Animation]]˛* Porky Pig's CatchPhrase at the end of many ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' shorts, "T-T-T-That's all, folks!"˛** It wasn't always Porky. In the early days it was said (minus stutter, of course) by various characters, like Bosko or Buddy. For the early ''[[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Merrie Melodies]]'', it was a nameless jester character. There are even a few cartoons that end with WesternAnimation/BugsBunny saying, "And that's the end!"˛* The ''WesternAnimation/EarthwormJim'' TV series would literally DropTheCow on someone, usually Jim.˛* In ''WesternAnimation/InspectorGadget'', after his nefarious scheme is foiled, Claw would threaten, "I'll get you next time, Gadget! [[WeWillMeetAgain Next time]]!" over the end credits.˛* ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'', in a nod to ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'', had several of the show's characters giving their own unique parting words:˛-->'''Babs and Buster:''' [[Creator/GeorgeBurns "Say good night, Babs."]] [[BeamMeUpScotty "Good night,]] [[ShoutOut Babs."]]\˛'''Babs and Buster [[AlohaHawaii wearing Hawaiian shirts]]:''' "A-loooooooha!"\˛'''Plucky:''' "[[Creator/WilliamShakespeare Parting is such sweet sorrow.]]"\˛'''Gogo:''' "It's been surreal!" (initiates IrisOut with a remote)\˛'''Buster:''' "And that's a wrap!"\˛'''Elmyra:''' "[[CloudCuckooLander Let the show begin!]]"\˛'''Byron Bassett''' (sniffs the ring for a bit) ".......Woof!"\˛'''Furball:''' "ROAR!!!...meow."\˛'''Fifi:''' "[[GratuitousFrench Au revoir, ma petite potato de couch.]]"\˛'''Dizzy:''' "SHOOOOOOOOOOOWW OVER!!!" (eats the entire screen, leaving only his eyes, which fall down)\˛'''Baby Plucky:''' "I wanna flush it again."\˛* Similarly, ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' has a final gag with the Warners (or sometimes other characters) popping out of the water tower.˛* ''WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain'' usually ended with this exchange, or a slight variation on it:˛-->'''Brain''': "Let's get back to the lab and plan for tomorrow night."\˛'''Pinky''': "Why, Brain? What are we going to do tomorrow night?"\˛'''Brain''': "The same thing we do every night, Pinky: try to TakeOverTheWorld!"˛** Here are some of the slight variations:˛--> "''try to take over the world from Joyce [=DeWitt=]!''"˛--> "''try to take over Chia World!''"˛--> "''try to take over [[Film/TheWizardOfOz Oz]]!''"˛--> (in an episode that takes place in [[Creator/WilliamShakespeare Shakespearean]] times): "''try to take over the Globe...Theater!''"˛--> (in a tongue twisting episode) "''try to wake over the torld!''"˛--> (in a VerySpecialEpisode where the Brain gets hooked on cigarettes): "* coughs* try to quit smoking. Hand me that Nicorette patch."˛--> (in episodes where Pinky and the Brain actually have to ''save'' the world from Brain's ArchNemesis): "The same thing we ''didn't'' do last night, Pinky: ''try to take over the world!''"˛--> "''try to take over the world - [[ShooOutTheNewGuy without]] [[OddNameOut Larry!]]''"˛--> (in the episode where the Brain gives sentience to the Earth) "Well, there's one thing we ''can'' do: ''try to take over the moon!''"˛--> (in WesternAnimation/WakkosWish) "''plan for the sequel where we'll take over the kingdom and the world!''"˛--> (in which the Brain suffers a NeverRecycleYourSchemes crisis)\˛'''Pinky:''' What now, Brain? Back to our mushroom house to prepare for tomorrow night?\˛'''Brain:''' No, Pinky. We shall stop at a pharmacy and purchase a tube of denture adhesive and then attach our bodies to the bottom of UsefulNotes/AirForceOne.\˛'''Pinky:''' So we can take over the world?\˛'''Brain:''' No, [[CallBack it's just fun, fun, silly-willy]]... [[BorrowedCatchPhrase narf]].˛--> (in which the duo become popular children's show characters in TheFifties)\˛'''Brain:''' Come, Pinky. We have work to do.\˛'''Pinky:''' You mean taking over the world?\˛'''Brain:''' No, Pinky. Finding a good hiding place.˛--> (in which the Brain tries to create a story about himself as a folklore hero)\˛'''Pinky:''' What are we going to do tomorrow night, Big Crabby See-Saw Kwanzaa Hot Mutton Chop Zeke[[note]]Pinky meant to call him "Big Johnny Brain Jones Peachpit Bill Boone Crocket"[[/note]]?\˛'''Brain:''' Work on learning each other's names, and then... try to take over the world!˛--> (last, but not least, in a rare daytime episode involving their "day jobs" as lab mice in mazes):\˛'''Brain''': We must prepare for tomorrow morning.\˛'''Pinky''': What are we going to do tomorrow morning?\˛'''Brain''': The same thing we do every morning, Pinky: run through that stupid maze.˛*** And of course, there's the subversion in the episode "Ambulatory Abe":˛-->'''Brain:''' Come, Pinky, we must--well, you know.˛** There's also the trademark voiceover ending of "They're dinky, they're Pinky and the Brain, Brain, Brain, Brain, Brain..." just before the end credits music. Certain episodes change this slightly in either the wording or the delivery. The Halloween episode had demon voices saying it followed by Pinky's {{Catch Phrase}}s and the Devil yelling "Stop that!"˛* ''WesternAnimation/ThreeDelivery'' ends each episode the same way: The trio and Nana put the rescued recipe in the cookbook before returning to the restaurant for another comedic moment.˛* Nearly every episode of ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' ended with a shot of the titular protagonists and the narrator exclaiming, "And SoOnceAgainTheDayIsSaved, thanks to... the Powerpuff Girls!" The only exceptions are when the ending segment is purposefully subverted.˛** Where the girls don't save the day, in "Him Diddle Riddle": "And so... uh... hmm... yeah."˛** When the girls get fed up with the people of Townsville's attitude and force them to destroy a monster without the girls' help: "... the day is saved with no thanks to the Powerpuff Girls. Hey... I did that all by myself!"˛** When the TimeTravel episode reveals Mojo Jojo's caused the StableTimeLoop that led to the girls' existence: "And SoOnceAgainTheDayIsSaved, thanks to the Powerpuff Girls... but thanks originally to Mojo Jojo who, once again, had a hand in creating the Powerpuff Girls!" This variant was also used when it was revealed that he caused the Chemical X accident, which led to the creation of the Powerpuff Girls.˛** When the episode centered around a couple of elderly heroes who were out to fight their out-of-retirement, equally elderly foes, and Blossom refused to allow the girls to intervene: the episode ends with all the old men falling over and breaking various limbs. Instead of the narrator, an in-story newscaster says over the end card "in this reporter's opinion, all this could have been avoided if the Powerpuff Girls had just saved the day."˛** The episode "Boogie Frights" ended with the narrator [[DontExplainTheJoke beating the audience over the head with the ironic use of "the day is saved"]] while the girls try to sleep in their bed (Bubbles in particular was not bothered at all).˛** The episode where Antidote X is introduced ended with, 'And the day is saved thanks to the normal little girls'˛** In the episode where the Powerpuff Girls are given a curfew, letting the villains run amuck at night, they finally beat them when they're told it's Daylight Savings Time and it's actually an hour earlier ended with "And the day is saved thanks to... Creator/BenjaminFranklin for coming up with the idea to move clocks back an hour to save on lamp oil, and the Powerpuff Girls!"˛** [[HeroicSacrifice "And so... for the first... and final time...]] [[TearJerker * sniff* ]] the day... is saved... thanks to the Powerpuff... Bunny! * sniff* * sob* "˛** The Narrator was very uncomfortable the one time he was forced to announce that [[VillainousRescue "the day was saved by...]] [[BigBad Mojo Jojo,]] [[WouldHitAGirl Fuzzy Lumpkins,]] and [[TheDevil Him]]!?"˛** He also once had to say that WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls saved the day... even though they were the ones who caused the trouble in the first place...˛** The episode ''A Very Special Blossom'' ends with the Narrator saying thanks to only Bubbles and Buttercup, and not to Blossom (who was sent to custody on stealing the golf stuff from the golf shop). And we see Blossom behind bars.˛** The episode "Criss Cross Crisis" ended with Bubbles and the Narrator [[FreakyFridayFlip swapping bodies]] with VoicesAreMental, so the ending lines are narrated with Bubbles's voice instead.˛** In "Uh Oh, Dynamo", when the Professor forces the three to fight the MonsterOfTheWeek in a HumongousMecha, resulting in Townsville getting destroyed, the outro has the narrator [[WhatTheHellHero calling him out on it.]]˛* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Superjail}}'', dumb recidivist criminal (and arguably main character) Jackknife escapes from the titular TheAlcatraz at the end of every episode only to be recaptured at the beginning of the next.˛* Nearly every episode of ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'' ends with the villain of the day being unmasked and then saying "and I would have gotten away with it too, if it weren't for YouMeddlingKids!"˛** Afterwards, Scooby would give his trademark "battle cry" (if you can call it that) of "Scooby-Dooby-Dooooooooooooooo!!!" (although, this didn't happen until later), usually after he initiates one last gag.˛* In ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones'', every episode ended with Fred being locked out of the house by the cat and trying in vain to get back in.˛--> '''Fred:''' ''[[SayMyName "Wiiiiiiiilllmaaaaaaa!!!"]]''˛* Animal's "''Go'' bye-bye!" skit at the end of every ''WesternAnimation/MuppetBabies'' episode, usually with him engaged in some dangerous activity as Gonzo fruitlessly tries to stop him.˛** This occured after not just the credits, but also the closing logos as well.˛* Each episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{COPS}}''. ended with the scene going to a still frame, which then pans out to reveal it is actually a photograph being entered into a police file. Bulletproof then restates the name of the episode and closes the file while saying "Case Closed."˛** Subverted in part one of the two-parter, when Bulletproof leaves the file open and ends with, "Case...continued?"˛* Every episode of ''WesternAnimation/DoraTheExplorer'' ends with Dora and Boots (and sometimes a friend who accompanies them) telling the viewer what their favorite parts of the episode were.˛* ''WesternAnimation/DrKatzProfessionalTherapist'': "You know what the music means. Our time is up."˛* Every episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Birdman}}'' would end with Birdman flying into the sky, bellowing his own name, often followed by Avenger cawing.˛* As a parody of OhCisco-type endings, every ''WesternAnimation/HarveyBirdmanAttorneyAtLaw'' episode ends with [[EverybodyLaughsEnding the cast and a few walk-ons laughing uproariously]] at something (or nothing).˛* Most episodes of ''WesternAnimation/{{Doug}}'' end with Doug writing a journal entry stating what he learned from all that.˛* The Playhouse Disney "Tasty Time with Ze Fronk" shorts usually end with "Get out of my kitchen you silly cat!" complete with Ze Fronk chasing Dom (the cat) around the kitchen.˛* In the ''WesternAnimation/ActionMan1995'' cartoon series, each episode ends with Action Man reflecting about the missing memory he has recovered during that episode.˛* WesternAnimation/NellieTheElephant dreams of going back to the jungle where all the other elephants lived.˛** Subverted in one episode, when Nellie gets stuck on the train, and can't get out, and wants to go back to the jungle, but she can't. Until she squiggled and wiggled and bumped, and left with edited StockFootage.˛* Just about every single episode of ''WesternAnimation/HouseOfMouse'' would end with Mike Microphone presenting a different sponsor parodying a different Disney movie. For example, one such sponsor is that of a magic spritzer that can make [[Franchise/WinniethePooh Eeyore]] gain a smile on his face, and [[Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs turn Grumpy into Happy.]]˛* ''WesternAnimation/CountDuckula'': "Good night out there, ''whatever'' you are."˛* ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'': "End transmission."˛* ''WesternAnimation/LittleBill'': "Little Bill, who are you talking to?"˛* ''WesternAnimation/BlinkyBill'': Nearly every episode of the Yoram Gross series has Blinky (or another character) saying his famous catchphrase: "Extraordinary!"˛* [[GreekChorus The snake and mouse]] from ''WesternAnimation/FishHooks''.˛* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb''˛--> '''Phineas:''' "Oh, there you are, Perry."˛--> '''Perry:''' *chortles*˛--> '''Ferb:''' (insert one-liner here)˛** Expect a guitar strike at the ''really'' end of each episode.˛* ''Albie'': someone [[SayMyName shouting]] "AAAAAAAALLL''BIIEEEEEEEE!''"˛* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'': Every episode ends with the episode's featured character announcing the [[AnAesop moral]] of the episode. The first three seasons have Twilight write Celestia a letter beginning with "Dear Princess Celestia..." With that said, the show started to phase out of this ending in Season 3. In season 4, the letters to Celestia were replaced with a journal that the main characters all wrote in. From season 5 onward this device was dropped completely. ˛* The ''WesternAnimation/MegaMan'' cartoon always has Rush doing something stupid.˛* ''WesternAnimation/TheJetsons'': George, trapped on the dogwalker running for his life, shouting "Jane! Stop this crazy thing!"˛* ''Olive the Ostrich'', a series seen in the U.S. on Creator/PBSKidsSprout always has a very specific ending. As the end Olive's adventure happens, the narrator states "...and as they did, Olive realized it was time for them to go." Olive pokes her head out of the sand and her mother comments that she's daydreaming again. Olive protests that she was having such-and-such adventure and her father comments that her head's been in the sand too long. Her brother laughs, but the narrator states that Olive wasn't listening because she was already dreaming up her next big adventure.˛* ''WesternAnimation/ProjectGeeKeR'': Moloch's plans are foiled again, and he utters an angry, "''Geeker...''"˛* ''WesternAnimation/SushiPack'' ends with the Pack jumping into the air and shouting "Sushi Pack!"˛** The only exception is the episode "Lights Out," when [[EnemyMine Unagi helped them save the day]] and all six of them shouted "Go Planet Earth!"˛* Each episode of the ''Literature/{{Madeline}}'' cartoon (including the original specials) ends with the narrator saying, "And that's all there is. There isn't any more." Those lines originally appeared at the end of the first ''Madeline'' book.˛* Each Commander [[MeaningfulName McBragg]] segment (first seen on WesternAnimation/TennesseeTuxedoAndHisTales) ends the same way:˛-->'''(unnamed second character)''': "Commander, [calls him out on his bragging with a pun or some other funny saying]."˛-->'''Commander [=McBragg=]''': Quite.˛* [[Series/TheSuperMarioBrosSuperShow "Until next time, everybody, Do the Mario!"]]˛* All of the "Peabody's Improbable History" segments in ''WesternAnimation/RockyAndBullwinkle'' ended with Mr. Peabody (or on rare occasion, Sherman) making [[{{Feghoot}} a horrible pun]]. This carries over to ''WesternAnimation/TheNewMrPeabodyAndShermanShow'', where each time travel story ends the same way.˛* In ''Animation/TicketyToc'', every episode ends with Tommy and Tallulah making it to Chime Time so they can stand on the clock's platform and drum and trumpet to mark the time.˛* Every episode of ''{{WesternAnimation/Lolirock}}'' ends with the main characters singing a song (since they're part of a band, and all). Interestingly, even though the song's always the same one, it avoids using StockFootage most of the time.˛* Most of the ''WesternAnimation/ThreeTwoOnePenguins'' episodes ended with the Rockhopper flying off into the night after Jason and Michelle finished praying.˛* On ''WesternAnimation/WildAnimalBabyExplorers'', the explorers imitate something done by one of the animals they saw in the episode, then sing a song about how great they are, followed by a brief concluding segment.˛* This happens in ''WesternAnimation/TheAddamsFamily1992'', where half hour episodes mostly end with one of the family members deciding to conduct a family dance for resolving the problem of the week. One proposes a dance that another family member dismisses because of [[NoodleImplements some requirement not being met]], leading to another dance being suggested and the family agreeing to groove to that one.˛* ''WesternAnimation/SpacePOP'': To TOTALLY Be Continued!˛* The final part of each 4-part story on ''WesternAnimation/{{Underdog}}'' usually ended with three people, not the same ones each time, mind you, saying, "It's a bird! It's a plane! It's a frog!" Underdog would then reply with, "Not bird, nor plane, nor even frog, it's just little old me-" at which point he'd crash into something and sheeplily finish: "Underdog."˛* Every episode of ''WesternAnimation/CoolMcCool'' ends with [=McCool=] getting ejected through the sunroof of Number One's office after doing something inept or disastrous following a case.˛[[/folder]]˛˛----
