** ''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, storylines, 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.

** For a more faithful adaptation check out the 1977 AirProgramsInternational adaptation. It was made for television, has a runtime of fifty-one minutes and most surprising of all kills of Moby-Dick himself while keeping Ishmael as a sole survivor making it a strange combination of the two endings: the one that was published and the WhatCouldHaveBeen ending where the whale would have been killed by the Pequod destroyed forcing the crew to pull the carcass by rowboat.

* By its sheer popularity it would seem natural that ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' would have this, but ZUN refusing to give his support to any official adaptation has killed most expectations of one. The closest it got were some {{fanime}}s of extremely high quality, namely ''Anime/MusouKakyouASummerDaysDream'' and then later ''Fanfic/FantasyKaleidoscope''.

** ''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 [[TheDCU DC Universe]], most famously ComicBook/HarleyQuinn.

** Like Batman, Superman has seen a number of animated movies, including ''WesternAnimation/SupermanBrainiacAttacks'', the aformentioned ''Superman/Batman'' movies, ''WesternAnimation/AllStarSuperman'', ''WesternAnimation/SupermanVsTheElite'', and ''WesternAnimation/SupermanUnbound''.



** Another series, more parodic in tone, began airing in 2013: ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo''. ''Go'' is even lighter than the earlier ''Teen Titans'', to the extent that there's an episode in which Dr. Light -- yes, ''[[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil that]]'' [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil Dr. Light]] -- performs a temporary HeelFaceTurn and has tea with Raven and Starfire before the boys show up belatedly and give him a reason to start hating the Titans all over again.

* Creator/JamesThurber's ''The Secret Life of Walter Mitty'' got transposed into the feline world, to become Filmation's ''The Secret Lives of Waldo Kitty''. The framing story involved live action cats, with Waldo getting in a tough scrape and imagining himself to be one of several animated hero cats, each of which was itself an animated adaptation/parody of some other show (e.g., "Captain Herk" of a distinctly Enterprise-like starship). The animation took up the bulk of each episode. Unfortunately, Filmation thought they could do this series without involving Thurber's estate -- they soon discovered they were wrong, which is why when the show went into syndication the live-action scenes were removed and the title was changed (to ''The New Adventures of Waldo Kitty'').
