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).

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

Knightmare
Newman And Baddiel (Rest) In Pieces[1]
Top Crown

are we including 3D CG stuff in there? there's Big Train and The Mighty Boosh if so
 1. 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

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.

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

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!
