The whole of season four of No Activity is going to be animated, presumably due to Covid restrictions.

Well, barely animated. At points it looks like a video game being played on ten-year-old computer, which makes it almost painful to watch (this trailer doesn't look so bad, but some of the ones on Facebook are appalling).

Jerzy Bondov


Dusty Substance


Blue Jam

Dream Corp LLC
It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia

Caroline in the City had animated interstitials (because she was a cartoonist).

A recent-ish episode of Black-ish was animated.

All of these shows and not one mention of Monty Python's Flying Circus.  Baffling!

Mister Six



Blue Jam


petril

Knightmare
Newman And Baddiel (Rest) In Pieces[nb]the repeat run got a new name and titles when Edvard Munch's estate took issue with them using The Scream. they replaced it with Newman and Baddiel's corpses, just to let you know what they'd be doing for the next 28 minutes[/nb]
Top Crown

are we including 3D CG stuff in there? there's Big Train and The Mighty Boosh if so

Can we have a sub-category of programmes which use embarrassing stop-motion-style sequences of photos of their cast members pulling silly faces / striking silly poses in their opening credits?

I meant title sequences only, initially.
Always thought Python as being equally animation and live action.

oh that deserves its thread, where the logo only has the one, darker shade of blue. and the original theme tune that doesn't fit

I completely misremembered the titles to Number 73 (turns out really boring) but it sparked a memory of early Why Don't You: https://youtu.be/3FQktsKvXcg

timebug

Final episode of series 7 'The Blacklist'. Seems they had filmed about two thirds of the episode,then Covid came along,so they shoved in some animated sequences to complete the episode!
