A Title Sequence done in the same format as the show itself. Original footage is created to showcase elements of the show's world. Often, this takes the form of a main character walking though his neighborhood, greeting other characters on their way to school or work.
Fairly common in animation, but rare otherwise, probably due to the cost of creating such footage.
