* ''[[ComicStrip/TheKatzenjammerKids The Katzenjammer Kids]]'' (or rather, it's [[AlternateContinuity alternate strip]] ''The Captain and the Kids'') received a less-than-successful adaptation by {{MGM}} in [[TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation the late 1930s]].

* ''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/TransformersTheMovie'' 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.

* Along with the ''SuperMarioBrosSuperShow'' aired ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfZelda'', based in the Hyrule of the first two games in the Zelda series. It became notorious (and the TropeNamer) for Link's obnoxious CatchPhrase, "WellExcuseMePrincess" Much like [[VideoGame/ZeldaIITheAdventureOfLink the second game]], it tends to be a BaseBreaker -- people who experienced it back when it was new tend to [[SoBadItsGood enjoy it more]] than people who became fans because of the later games.

* Several ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' shorts featured cartoon mouse versions of ''Series/TheHoneymooners'' ("The Honey-Mousers", "Cheese It! The Cat", "Mice Follies") and ''Radio/TheJackBennyProgram'' ("The Mouse That Jack Built" which actually featured Benny and the show's cast). There was also two ''Looney Tunes'' shorts that featured characters resembling animal versions of AbbottAndCostello, one as [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RKkL-e5FfEA mice]], the other as [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Tale_of_Two_Kitties cats]] (which also featured the first appearance of Tweety!)

* ''Franchise/HeroFactory'' is struggling to keep one up, perhaps in part because it barely has a story to speak of (very much unlike the above). The first season, ''Rise of the Rookies'', was a 4-episode MiniSeries, while the second, ''Ordeal of Fire'', had to be [[CompressedAdaptation compressed]] into a ''single'' episode. Season 3, titled ''Savage Planet'', became more of a legitimate mini-cartoon again (though only two episodes long), with ''Ordeal'' being reduced to a simple [[DVDBonusContent bonus for its DVD release]]. ''Breakout'' was a two-parter, but the following "seasons" only consisted of a single episode each (''Brain Attack'' and ''Invasion from Below''). Later installments are more glorified toy ads without a shred of pretense, since they have to showcase as many sets as they can under 22 minutes.

** The 2015 reboot had minute-and-a-half long animated webisodes that covered the winter and summer 2015 stories. A Netflix animated miniseries titled "The Journey to One" will premiere on February 2016. * ''Franchise/HeroFactory'' is struggling struggled to keep one up, perhaps in part because it barely has had a story to speak of (very much unlike the above).

Later installments are more glorified toy ads without a shred of pretense, since they have to showcase as many sets as they can under 22 minutes. This may also be due to the fact that just as the story started gearing up to go somewhere in Breakout, the line was put on much lower priority to instead focus on the Bionicle reboot.
