    * In an episode of the sitcom Full House, (1987 – 1995) Stephanie is at home waiting for her date for a school dance to pick her up. She suddenly starts playing with some building blocks and eventually makes the Manhattan skyline. When Danny (Bob Saget) enters and sees what she's made, he comments' "The New York skyline. Wow, the World Trade Center looks as tall as ever."

    * in a December 1991 episode of Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego? (game show), the Double Trouble twins steal the World Trade Center.

    * The Twin Towers made one very brief appearance in the Family Matters (1989 – 1998) episode "Fa La La La Laagghh!" After Carl turned on the Christmas light decoration on the Winslow's house, a malfunction (thanks to Steve?) results in a power outage. First, the Winslow's home goes out, then a row of family homes, then Lower Manhattan, and finally, the entire world. Steve then says "Look what you did."

    * NYPD Blue a police drama from the mid 1990's featured the World Trade Center in many of the introductions to the show.

    * The ABC series Sports Night (1998 – 2000) often used an establishing shot of the New York skyline in which the Twin Towers were the focal point, implying that the studios were in the Towers.

    * The pilot of the TV series The Lone Gunmen, first aired March 4, 2001, had the gunmen thwarting a plot to fly a jet into the World Trade Center. In the episode, a faction of the U.S. government is behind the plot; they hope to blame the attack on another country's dictator and use it as an excuse to start a war with him. Transcript of pilot episode

    * In the Northern Exposure episode The Quest, Dr Joel Fleischman returns to New York. He's standing at the rail of the Staten Island Ferry which is covered in fog. As the fog clears, the Twin Towers become visible in the distance. Cable channel A&E aired this episode (the second-to-last NX episode A&E aired) on Thursday, September 13, 2001.
