** ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' is arguably the most successful example of the Animated Adaptation. It spawned [[Franchise/{{DCAU}} seven in-continuity spin-off shows]] that lasted from the early 1990s right through to the early 21st century, as well as computer games and movies. It kept some of the character designs and all of the tone of Creator/TimBurton's movies (well, it was dark but not in a Tim Burton kind of way), but took place in an AlternateContinuity. It also originally placed a moratorium on death, although this was relaxed for the spin-off movies and the rest of the {{DCAU}} in general, including ''The New Batman Adventures''. Also, several characters were popular enough to become {{Canon Immigrant}}s to the mainstream [[Franchise/TheDCU DC Universe]], most famously ComicBook/HarleyQuinn.

** There was one in the 1980s with [[EarWorm a catchy tune]], which was most famous for having him meet up with Doctor Doom ''repeatedly''. This one eventually became ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManAndHisAmazingFriends'', for which it is known better, as well as a ''WesternAnimation/SpiderWoman'' spinoff.
** ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManTheAnimatedSeries'' was pretty much John Semper doing the best he could with horrible animation, censorship and ExecutiveMeddling, yet still doing pretty well.
** ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan'' is widely considered an AdaptationDistillation. While the show does stay true to the comics(through using a lot of elements from the original spider-man comics that were written by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko; the show brought in characters, story lines, and plot elements with a similar balance of action, drama and comedy as well as a high school setting.) it also tends to utilize material from all eras of the comic's run and other sources such as the more recent the [[Comicbook/UltimateSpiderMan Ultimate Comics]], and the [[Film/SpiderManTrilogy movies]], (through a few of the the designs of some of the characters but they were principally based of the characters from the mainstream comics ) making a spider-man cartoon that is recognizable to both older and younger fans.
** ''WesternAnimation/{{Ultimate Spider-Man}}'' is loosely adapted from the comic book with the same name while using some elements from the mainstream and marvel cinematic universe. The series tries its best to put a different spin on all the old characters and try to bring in something new.

* ''WesternAnimation/BackToTheFuture: The Animated Series'' focused on Doc Brown's family after the events in ''Film/BackToTheFuturePartIII'', mainly his sons, Jules and Verne. They would often go on adventures through time and space via a rebuilt [=DeLorean=] and the time traveling train engine seen at the end of ''Part III''. Marty [=McFly=] was still getting dragged along with them, and every time period, including ancient Rome, had an ancestor of Biff Tannen running around. The present-day Biff always got a small skit at the end of every episode. There were also live-action segments at the beginning and end featuring Creator/ChristopherLloyd as Doc and Bill Nye as his assistant, which led to the creation of Nye's program ''Series/BillNyeTheScienceGuy''.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/user/pixlpit PixlPit]] has made various animations using audio from {{Lets Play}}ers such as ''LetsPlay/{{Markiplier}}'' and ''LetsPlay/JackSepticEye''. These differ from other fan animations in that the story in [=PixlPit's=] is often unrelated to the video they were taken from - for example, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8pWeU_eMkxE Markiplier Animated: Night out]] turned audio of Markiplier playing ''VideoGame/SilentHills'' into a video of Markiplier accidentally going into a gay bar.
