Two-color TV systems never went into use, although they were proposed. A Mexican inventor proposed a two-color system for Mexico:

Two color film, however, was used for a while - in one early form of Technicolor; also some two-color cartoons by others than Disney (who had three years of exclusive rights for use of three-color Technicolor in cartoons).
