Between March 2000 and the early 2010s, Nickelodeon has used numerous split-screen (or crunch) credits at the end of programs instead of normal end credits. The main purpose is to show promotional advertisements while credits are running. Prior to split screen credits, voice overs were common.

Since 2012, most non-preschool Nickelodeon series have primarily used lower-third retyped credits at the end of a program during the show itself.
