* In the {{Creator/Nelvana}} AnimatedAdaptation of TimothyGoesToSchool which is based on the works of RosemaryWells. Yoko's mother would sometimes bring up the other family members who still living in Japan along with mentioning her daughters early memories of living in Japan as a toddler. While we do see a glimpse of Yoko's grandfather in the episode "The Takatombo". We never actually see the other family members of Yoko in the show or even see the rest of Japan in general. In 2001, Wells made a book called "Yoko's Paper Cranes" where you can actually see Yoko as a very young kitten still living with her grandma and grandpa along with seeing cranes. We also see Yoko and her grandmother Obaasan feeding cranes,having tea, and Ojisaan showing her how to make paper cranes. This is also the only time Yoko's grandmather is actually seen.

** ''GIJoe'' also had a bit of this as well, one example would be the Dreadlok Buzzer whom was a disgruntled former Sociology professor in Cambridge England. Before he joined the Dreadnoks Richard "Buzzer" Blinken was a sociology college professor in England whom got in trouble because the college he worked at did not like his "extremist left-wing political beliefs". Buzzer wanted to do some research on Australian Biker gangs in which he ended up being a part of the very thing he was researching when he joined the Dreadnoks.

* A lot of character and setting details for ''{{Transformers}}'' are only found with the back-of-the-box toy descriptions for the characters and profiles released as supplementary material, occasionally with characters who never even made it into the show itself.

** The ''TransformersAnimated'' [[RunningTheAsylum writing and art staff]] actually sat down and ''wrote'' a pair of manuals. The Allspark Almanac I and II are a pair of incredibly detailed books about the characters, setting, and plot devices in the show, including a lot of things that most cartoon writers would never think about in the first place. It's also ridiculously geeky.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'' has "Star and Marco's Guide to Mastering Every Dimension", which contains all manner of information that was never mentioned in the show. This ranges from minor details like the full names of nearly every character, to major backstory elements for a variety of both major and minors characters, to ton of details about the history and geography of Mewni. Perhaps the most important revelation is the origin story of Glossaryck and the Magic High Commission, some of the most mysterious characters in the show.

** King Sombra's aftereffects on the Crystal Empire are indeed NightmareFuel-worthy, but we never know anything of his direct rule--until ComicBook/MyLittlePonyFriendsForever shows flashbacks of him [[spoiler:enslaving a Crystal Bard for its CompellingVoice and siccing his guards on its trail when it finally escapes.]]

* Snowball II, the replacement cat for Snowball on ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' was revealed in 1994 to not be a cat at all, but a member of a race of catlike aliens sent to spy on Earthlings. Problem was, this was only mentioned on a BongoComics trading card about Snowball II and never brought up in the show itself. And it probably never will be, now that Snowball II herself has been killed and replaced by various other cats (though the current cat is called Snowball II even in-universe simply for tradition's sake).

* In ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' it is never fully stated what happened to Finn's (human) parents. However, in the Adventure Time Encyclopaedia book it is revealed that Finn's parents abandoned him in a basket in the woods for unknown reasons. He was left there until he was found by Jake's parents. (The aftermath of the abandonment is seen in the flashback scenes of "Memories of Boom Boom Mountain".)
