I know MCU known for them tying to another MCU movie, but was Ferris first to use technique of showing more after, even though had nothing to do with another movie? Did other movies in way back do this? I know had cliffhangers, but was motexever shown maybe off character on on after credit sequence rolled?

Taxi cab with the meter running at the end of Airplane! comes to mind.

The first film to do something that is closest to what the MCU movies do is Young Sherlock Holmes.

Huh. Well Ferris up there. I guess first 1966, but I don’t remember Adventures in Babysitting, Pains, Trains and Automobiles, Aliens? Where? When? It does seem Ferris was most popular that started consistency. In fairly seen movies. Then Fast & Furious probably put in over the top and then of course Marvel...

Internet says The Silencers (1966) was the first.

And Although it was, technically, before the credits, Night of Terror (1933) had a 4th wall-breaking stinger:

Really cool movie actually. Maybe the first to use stand-alone CGI effects interacting with live action.



Both Ferris Bueller and Airplane! kept the audience watching by having live-action going the whole time. Wonder what the first was to cut back to live action after traditional credits were done. It's been a long, long time since I watched Young Sherlock Holmes. Did they do it as a tag after traditional credits?

Yeah, Young Sherlock Holmes is the first one that I remember. But, after seeing the chronological list, I remember a lot of the prior ones too. Cannonball run was great. "These bleeds?"

See, I mentioned Young Sherlock here too: https://forum.dvdtalk.com/movie-talk...-spoilers.html

Airplane! kept people watching by having funny credits and names. Not live action.

Ferris Bueller had live action all the way through so you’d hang around. As did Young Sherlock Holmes.

I think Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is more notable because he talks to the audience.

Young Tom Edison has a short tease after the end title for Edison, the Man. It's pretty cool.

The Muppet Movie had an after credit bit with Animal telling everyone to go home.

I wonder if younger people even know who that is or, back then, even if people outside of California were aware.

I didn't know until I clicked that Wikipedia link above, though I knew who Howard Jarvis was from the news and Time Magazine.

What's so great about the post-credit scene in "Airplane!" is it concludes a running gag set up at the start of the movie.

This video has just both the opening credits and end credits of "Airplane!"

Watch at ~3:30 in this video to see the guy hailing a cab set up during the opening credits

Then watch at ~9:00 in this video to see the post-credit scene of the cab guy



(I know there was at one other scene of the guy in the cab mid-movie too as a part of this running gag)

It's not too notable, he was talking to the audience the entire movie.

I don't think Ferris Bueller’s Day Off started a trend. Through the rest of the 80s, it stayed at about 2 films a year with a post credits scene. In the last 90s it started picking up, but really It was the Pixar films, Pirates of the Caribbean, and the MCU that made the use of post and mid credit scenes popular.

An important note to remember is that end credits weren't really all that common until the 70s. Before that, most movies would have only opening credits. So there wasn't really an opportunity to put in a "post credits" or even "mid credits" or "during credits" scene up until then, since there were no closing credits to play after, during, or midway through.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Closing_credits#History

Also, that Wikipedia article notes that, while not a "scene" per se, Animal House in 1978 used a variant of the "Visit Universal Studios" card Universal used to put at the end of their films that added "Ask for Babs" to it, referencing one of the characters from the film that became a Universal Studios tour guide. This card variant was used on a number of later films, mostly other John Landis films, until it was retired after Blues Brothers 2000 in 1998.

Did Universal Studios Used to Offer an Incentive Based on a Joke From Animal House?

There were several movies to do it before then, but I think Young Sherlock Holmes was the first to show anything significant that tied into a bigger picture.

James Bond will be back in Thunderball!

It's not an extra scene, but it was the first time I saw the next movie advertised after the current one's credits. Serials did it all the time, but the sequel was coming next week.

And some advertised sequels that never came- Airplane III was teased at the end of Airplane II, Making the Grade had a sequel teased in the end credits and Dr. Detroit teased one before the end credits, though that one might have been a joke.

^ IIRC there was a trailer for History of the World, Part II before the end credits of History of the World, Part I. If I'm not remembering that right, it's because I last saw HotWP1 back in '81.

That’s true about History of the World, but it was a joke. It was never going to actually be made.

Buckaroo Banzai teases that a sequel would be made, but it never was.
