* The first "season" of ''WebVideo/LasagnaCat'' was a relatively forward affair, never going beyond using simple and basic [[ChromaKey greenscreen effects]] and actors in simple costumes. After a SequelGap of nine years, the second "season" arrives and goes all out, using more complicated greenscreen effects, more elaborate costumes, and even sets, props, and several on-location shoots, and does stuff like recreating a whole segment of the pilot episode of ''Series/MiamiVice'' practically shot for shot and creating a whole miniature town in breakfast products only to blow it up.

* ''Series/DoctorWho'' is this trope in spades. For example, the Daleks are galaxy spanning empires that can field thousands of units - and yet the most we ever saw were the same four or so Daleks costumes paraded around in a circle to make them seem more numerous... until the 2005 revival, where the climax of the series featured a Big Budget long shot with millions of Daleks all lusting for the destruction of the Doctor and the extermination of the human race. It made every fan weep tears of joy.
** Ironically (or appropriately), all those special effects that all knocked our socks off 10 years ago? They haven't aged very well.

** The show's Dalek episodes benefitted from this film as well - the rainbow-colored Daleks don't look so garish in black and white, so suddenly the show had more props to work with.

* Both [[Recap/MysteryScienceTheater3000TheMovie the movie]] and the Netflix revival of ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' benefited from this trope, but the Netflix revival showcased this the most, with the Crow, Tom Servo and Gypsy puppets getting major overhauls.

* ''WesternAnimation/ThomasAndTheMagicRailroad'' recreated the series' model train set at double the size on a Toronto sound stage. [[UncannyValley Still couldn't make the faces to move, though]].

* Prior to ''WebOriginal/DemoReel'', Creator/DougWalker purchased an actual studio space for it and other Chicago-based Channel Awesome productions. When ''Demo Reel'' tanked and Doug brought WebOriginal/TheNostalgiaCritic back, the bigger budget went toward a green screen, more sketches with an expanded cast, and amazing props/costumes. Quite an upgrade from being filmed in Doug's parents' basement. This makes the episodes that return to the primary original format of "Critic just sits and reviews a movie" jarringly different from the sketch-based reviews.

* TheMovie of the first season of ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' noticeably upped the power of the characters, to the point that Nanoha's [[WaveMotionGun Starlight Breaker]] ''levels a city.''

* WebOriginal/JonTron has also received a significant budget boost. Unlike the Critic, there isn't much of a difference in terms of content. He just has more money to indulge in all the [[BizarroShow batshit insanity]] that goes down.
