* Creator/RichardScarry's Busy Town series has two animated shows both by Creator/CookieJarEntertainment. The first was "The Busy World Of Richard Scarry" from the late 80's and early 90's which previously aired on Nickelodeon but currently reruns on PBSKidsSprout. This was also the only animated series made while RichardScarry was alive before his death in 1994. A second animated series for Busy Town was made in the late 2000's and animated in flash. [[ShortRunner It didn't last as long as the first animated series did though.]]

* The ''Franchise/GarbagePailKids'' trading cards had an [[WesternAnimation/GarbagePailKidsCartoon animated series]] consisting of 13 episodes that was planned to air on CBS until complaints from MoralGuardians resulted in the show being locked away for years until it was finally made available to the public via DVD. The show's premise was about five Garbage Pail Kids (Split Kit, Patty Putty, Elliot Mess, Terri Cloth, and Clogged Duane) hanging out and fighting crime, with additional segments including movie parodies, Garbage Pail Awards, bulletins warning of pests as if they were wanted criminals, and {{Parody Commercial}}s.

* ''Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch'' as ''WesternAnimation/SabrinaTheAnimatedSeries'' (and ''Sabrina's Secret Life''). Similar in basic idea to the original (if [[ContinuityReboot ignoring its canon]]), only younger (and with balding butcher Uncle Quigley added to the cast as one of Sabrina's caretakers). Melissa Joan Hart's sister took over the title role, while Melissa did the voice of her aunts.

* ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' is probably the most successful and definitely most prolific example of this. Though, originally, the toys were from separate toy lines and had no factions and none of their iconic names. Those were invented by the show's creators and then put into a new toy line. The entire purpose of ''WesternAnimation/TheTransformersTheMovie'' was to "clear the way for the new toy line". The real reason Optimus Prime and many of the others were killed off? Because their toys had been discontinued by the company.

* ActionMan (Action Force in the 1980s) was originally the U.K. version of Franchise/GIJoe, but received a retool as an extreme sports hero who later had his own cartoon.

* ''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[[note]](he was dubbed over by Bill Castellaneta, who voiced the animated version)[[/note]] and Bill Nye as his assistant, which led to the creation of Nye's program ''Series/BillNyeTheScienceGuy''.

* While Creator/HGWells‎' ''Literature/TheTimeMachine'' has seen various adaptations over the years in different media (including an authorized sequel by StephenBaxter), there exists a 2003 DirectToVideo animated movie called ''Time Kid''. There are so many changes and alterations that the only thing the film has in common with the source material is the titular Time Machine and the design of the Morlocks.
