"Apocalypse After" is a collection of shorts with one of the shorts being "Apocalypse After". Should I make that the main entry and then create a child for each short? Or treat like Episodes? Either may take a lifetime. Any existing examples of how this should be done correctly?

Thanks in advance.

Treat like episodes. 

Examples would include Looney Tunes: Platinum Collection: Volume One (UPC 883929192915) or Art of the Short Film (UPC 616892264309)
If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.

Quoting Kvack:

No. That would require the use use of "alternate versions" of the same UPC or Disc ID, and the contribution rules explicitly forbid that:

Alternate versions are not used for contributing profiles for shorts or episode-level profiles for TV series.

So yeah, Danae Cassandra is right: treat them as TV episodes.
