    * In the 2001 anime Haré+Guu, the towers appear in Guu's "stomach".

    * In the (1999–2003) animated series Futurama the setting takes place in the year 3000 in New New York City. In first episode, Fry, Leela and Bender adventured to the forgotten and decaying ruins of Old New York (which was under now located under the sewers of New New York) The destroyed towers appeared in the background several times. In New New York City, A future version of the Twin Towers appear in the futuristic skyline, similar to the originals but with skybridges. After 9/11 the Towers remained.

    * In the special episode "The Tower Country" of Kino's Journey (2005), the plot revolves around a tower which collapses in a similar way as the first of the Twin Towers.

    * The animated sitcom Family Guy episode titled A Picture Is Worth a 1,000 Bucks, Peter does a musical number with Meg across NYC, which had the Twin Towers. During the musical, Peter jumps off one of the towers and goes into match cut.

    * In the 2002 Family Guy episode Brian Wallows and Peter's Swallows Brian performs a musical number to Pearl on how America has changed since the 1950s. Many cut scenes show places around the U.S., including a shot of the Twin Towers. When the episode Aired in 2002 on Fox the two towers were digitally erased, or technically, shortened. Other airings of this episode elsewhere show the Twin Towers intact. Also in the episode Baby Not On Board Peter and the family minus Stewie visit Ground Zero.

    * 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.
