** ''WesternAnimation/LiloAndStitchTheSeries'', ''Anime/{{Stitch}}'', and ''Animation/StitchAndAi''. Yes, ''three'' for [[Disney/LiloAndStitch one franchise]], and all were made in the span of just fifteen years from the first film's debut. (Although, the latter two series are actually spin-offs primarily made for the countries where they were produced; only the first one definitively follows the original film.)

** ''WesternAnimation/TimonAndPumbaa'', which compared to the rest of them had little to do with ''Disney/TheLionKing'' besides shared characters (a couple of episodes even had a cartoon focused on Rafiki or the three hyenas from the movie [Shanzai -- with Creator/TressMacNeille as Shanzai instead of Whoopi Goldberg], Banzai, and Ed]).

In the 1970s, there was apparently something in the water supply, because TV executives thought that it would be a pretty good idea to take popular TV shows and redo them in an animated format. If that was all there was to it, this would simply be a very strange thing to do, and sometimes, that's as far as it went: ''WesternAnimation/StarTrekTheAnimatedSeries'' was essentially just a continuation of the original series in animated format, and there it almost made sense -- elaborate alien/monster designs cost a lot less in animation, animation could make designs that were not even possible at the time (or even today), and it gave fans what they were clamoring for -- more ''Star Trek'' -- at a low cost (an Emmy win didn't hurt, either). But most of the time, the folks behind these abominations (correctly) realized that the source material [[AnimationAgeGhetto wasn't really suitable]] to a SaturdayMorningCartoon. And yet this didn't stop them.

** A more direct adaptation came in the 2016 direct-to-DVD film ''WesternAnimation/BatmanReturnOfTheCapedCrusaders'', which is explicitly based off of the '60s show and had West, Ward, and Julie Newmar reprising their roles. A sequel came out in 2017 with Creator/WilliamShatner playing Two-Face, who was deemed too gruesome for the TV show.

* 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.]]
