* The long-lost American commercials for ''VideoGame/BanjoKazooie'', ''VideoGame/SecretOfMana'', and ''[[VideoGame/JetSetRadio Jet Set Radio Future]]'' have been recovered on YouTube after years of people searching for them (heck, some people didn't even ''know'' that JSRF had an American ad). ''Banjo-Kazooie'' took 14 years to be recovered (aired in 1998, uploaded to the internet in 2012), ''Secret of Mana'' took '''17 years''' (aired in 1993, recovered in 2010 from a French VHS that had French subtitles), and JSRF took 9 years (aired in 2002, recovered in 2011).

* In [[TurnOfTheMillennium 2000]], MarvelComics finally released a volume of ''Essential ConanTheBarbarian''... which was never followed up, as Creator/DarkHorseComics acquired the license soon after. Seven years later, Dark Horse started reprinting not only the original Conan ongoing, but also ''Savage Sword of Conan the Barbarian'', ''King Conan'', and all the other ComicBookAdaptation(s) of Creator/RobertEHoward's works.
* The SamAndMax comic collection, Surfin' The Highway, was printed in 1995 and went out of print. For years second hand copies were going for a substantial amount of money. However, in 2008, with the success of Telltale's SamAndMax games, the company was able to rerelease it. As Steve Purcell works for Telltale, the rerelease was greatly expanded.
* ''SuicideSquad'', a popular late-1980s series which had super-villains being sent on black-ops missions in exchange for a full pardon for their crimes, remains uncollected and plans for a black-and-white Showcase Presents reprint were scuttled by issues involving royalty rates for DC Comics published from 1976-96. These royalty rates also have screwed other Showcase titles such as Jonah Hex (Volume 2 can't be released because the issues that would be collected would contain issues published in this timeframe) and scuttled plans for Showcase volumes collecting "Captain Carrot and the Zoo Crew" and "Who's Who in the DC Universe".

** And as of 2015 onwards, DC have been releasing print [=TPBs=] of the series.
* An infamous case is ''ComicBook/{{Hellblazer}}'', which has huge chunks of the series uncollected. Although original series writer Jamie Delano's work is finally in the process of being reissued in trade paperback (as of 2010 everything from Issue #1 through "The Family Man" is available), not one issue of Paul Jenkins' forty-issue run on the title has been collected, despite this including some of the series' pivotal events such as Constantine's [[spoiler:encounter with God, rescue of Astra from Hell, and creation of his own demon-self]].
** This was finally corrected in 2016, with the reissue of Jenkins' complete run.

* The anime version of ''Manga/BoboboBoBobobo'' experienced this when it had a one-run on ''{{Toonami}}'' in 2005, and only two DVD sets were released in the states. The company that was distributing them went under rather quickly and without notice. But in 2012, S'more Entertainment officially released the anime in two box sets (divided into 38 episodes each) in the states.

However with a catch,the japanese episodes of the series did not actually come with a subtitled track. Even though the box set says they are included,they most certainly are not. So if you were hoping for the original with a professional sub track,your journey has not yet ended.

* Four Fujiko Fujio anime, ''Perman (1967)'', ''Kaibutsu-kun (1968)'', ''Umeboshi Denka'', and ''Jungle Kurobe'', were extremely rare after their initial airing for years due to a lack of reruns and home media releases. However, it wasn't until the 2010s when all four series were released on DVD in Japan, finally making them available again. King Record released ''Kaibutsu-kun'' in October 2010 and ''Perman'' in November 2014, while Toei Video released ''Jungle Kurobe'' in December 2015 and ''Umeboshi Denka'' in January 2016.

* The circumstances surrounding the holdup of the 1960s ''Series/{{Batman}}'' TV show were numerous, even compared to other works. The prints of the series are owned by 20th Century Fox, but the characters are owned by DCComics, which is owned by competitor Time Warner. Fox went to court in 2008 to battle Creator/WarnerBros. regarding rights issues with the then-unreleased ''Film/{{Watchmen}}'' adaptation, of which the acquisition of the rights to the ''Batman'' series was a key sticking point. Even besides that, there were still many other factors.\\

* ''The Iron Petticoat'', a 1950s film featuring the only on-screen performance of BobHope with Creator/KatharineHepburn, was suppressed by Hope shortly after its original theatrical release, as he had bad memories of the making of the film, including fights between him and writer Ben Hecht (Hope insisted on having him and his gag writers write schtick for the movie, and Hecht resisted.) Hope had ended up with all rights to the movie, and sat on it for the rest of his life. It was only in 2012 that his estate relented and allowed the film to be released on Blu-Ray and for TV broadcast.

* In Australia, Creator/MadmanEntertainment successfully licensed the ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'' dub and put out a pair of boxsets constituting the series' complete run. No word on whether they'll follow up on any of the other ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'' series currently lacking full dub releases, nor on any such thing for the rest of the world.

* For years, [[VideoGame/SimCity Sim City 3000]] was the only game of the series not to have any sort of legitimate digital release after going out of print. This wasn't because of poor reception or sales, but because it coundn't run on DOSBox like its predecessors (and couldn't run natively on modern Windows like Sim City 4 can). After many years of remaining a conspicuous gap in the series, EA and Website/GOGDotCom finally teamed up to bring it back in mid-2016, and this time it's compatible up to and including Windows 10.
