    * Several shots of the Twin Towers appear in the introduction and several establishing shots of New York City, some episodes, all including the Twin Towers, for Friends (1994–2004) over the first seven seasons (1994–2001). Pictures of the Manhattan Skyline featuring the WTC also feature on many DVD cases, and DVD Box Set cases. [16] As every season the Opening sequence slightly changes with a new shot of the skyline with the title card, some seasons showed the Twin Towers, others the Empire State Building and Chrysler Building. Later seasons after 9/11 still briefly showed the Towers, the original and main title card used for later seasons has a portion of both towers visible, yet they are not very obvious. The last episode (2004) even included one of the most common seen pieces of stock footage, a shot of Lower Manhattan in the late afternoon under the Brooklyn Bridge, this time, cut only panning as far as the South Tower. As of 2007 the Twin Towers are still shown in establishing shots throughout earlier seasons and have not been edited out.

    * In the early 2000s The Twins appeared in an animated skyline including various United States skyscrapers in a commercial for Kraft Macaroni & Cheese. The Towers where however represented as cylinders instead of their true rectangular shapes.

    * An Anheuser-Busch advertisement for Budweiser beer features the company's signature Clydesdale horses appearing to pay their respects to the tower-less New York skyline. It was aired just once, during the broadcast of the 2002 Super Bowl [19].

    * In the Hey Arnold! episode "Married", Helga has a dream about her future life with Arnold, one scene included them having breakfast atop a luxurious skyscraper north of Central Park. The Twin Towers are prominently seen in the distance, along with other landmarks such as the Brooklyn Bridge, Statue of Liberty, and Chrysler Building. The episode first aired March 2002, but the view of the penthouse and New York City skyline weren't cut out until later airings, but the tops of the two towers can still be seen while the two conversate.
