** It has also forever burned the voices of Creator/KevinConroy and Creator/MarkHamill into the minds of everyone that grew up in the 1990s and 2000s as '''the''' voices of Batman and SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker... You'd think after ''Film/TheDarkKnightSaga'', DC may have tried to get new voices for the characters, but both returned to their roles in ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamAsylum'' and ''[[VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity Arkham City]]'', and rather than Creator/ChristianBale voicing Batman in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanGothamKnight'', ''Film/TheDarkKnight'' tie-in Direct-to-Video movie, guess who played Batman instead? (Though this had more to do with both Nolan and Bale's disapproval of the animated tie-in, simply because it was "for kids" and "a tie-in", despite getting the same MPAA rating as the movies.)

** Though there wasn't a ''Film/{{Terminator}}'' cartoon ([[http://stason.org/TULARC/movies/terminator/7-4-Marvel-Comics-The-Terminator.html not that they didn't try]]), there was a range of children's toys based on the film, which at the time was still rated 18. There is a now CGI animated adaptation, called ''Terminator Salvation: The Machinima Series''.

* In a looser sense, every TV iteration of ''Franchise/AlvinAndTheChipmunks'' falls into this trope as the characters were originally used for novelty records.

** ''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.
