* The ''Series/SesameStreet'' movie ''Follow That Bird'' involves the other characters tracking down and rescuing Big Bird from some seedy amusement park operators. Note that this is a film for a PBS educational TV series aimed at toddlers--it does not make for sweet dreams among its target demographic.
** There's also ''Film/TheAdventuresOfElmoInGrouchland'', where the title character goes down Oscar's trash can to retrieve his stolen blanket.
** And "Don't Eat The Pictures" had them helping the spirit of an Ancient Egyptian boy escape a demon and pass into the afterlife.
** In ''Big Bird in China'', Big Bird and Barkley [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin go to China]] [[VisualPun on a very slow boat]] - and encounter two shape-shifting Chinese gods once they get there.



* ''Film/TheMuppets'': The 2011 movie is about saving the studio from demolition by a greedy oil tycoon.
* The follow-up to ''The Muppets'' was ''Film/MuppetsMostWanted'', about Kermit (while on a European tour with the rest of the Muppets) being temporarily replaced with an insane criminal who looks almost exactly like him (save for a shorter collar and a mole), and getting thrown in a gulag because of it.
* Some of the earlier ones were this to an extent as well (even ignoring the [[UniversalAdaptorCast book adaptations]]). ''Film/TheMuppetMovie'': Save Kermit from Doc Hopper! ''Film/TheGreatMuppetCaper'': Save the Baseball Diamond from Nicky Holliday! ''Film/MuppetsFromSpace'': Save Gonzo from TheMenInBlack! ''Film/TheMuppetsTakeManhattan'' is the only one that's just about a bunch of frogs and pigs and bears and things putting on a show, and even it amps up the epicness a bit.

* ''The WesternAnimation/ShaunTheSheep Movie''. A typical episode of the TV show involved Shaun and the flock getting up to mild hijinks, and Blitzer trying to put a stop to it before the Farmer notices. In the movie, Shaun's hijinks lead to the Farmer ending up in the Big City with EasyAmnesia, and Blitzer and the flock have to go on a quest to retrieve him, falling afoul of a DiabolicalDogcatcher in the process.

* The TV-movie for AreYouAfraidOfTheDark definitely counts. The TV series was simply a story every episode, where a member of the Midnight Society tells a scary story with made-up characters enduring the peril. The movie was about the Midnight Society ''themselves,'' beginning with the death of the main character's grandfather, leading into the group having to gather pieces of a broken record to find clues as to the location of a mysterious "Silver Sight," which turns out to be [[spoiler:a silver marble that has to power to erase people from existence]], and adds a creepy old man and a CreepyChild who are both a little ''too'' interested in the situation. Ladies and gentlemen, ''Tale of the Silver Sight.''

* Zigzagged with the ''Anime/SailorMoon'' movies. While the stakes aren't any higher than the show, the plots are more epic, minor characters like Tuxedo, Luna and Chibi-Usa get ADayInTheLimelight, and the villains aren't from the manga (although Creator/NaokoTakieuchi did [[GodCreatedCanonForeigner develop them]].

** ''WesternAnimation/TheSpongeBobSquarePantsMovie'' was much more epic than the show. While most episodes of the show were (and still are) basically about anything and didn't take themselves very seriously at all, the movie involves [=SpongeBob=] and Patrick going on an adventure to retrieve King Neptune's stolen crown and, while generally lighthearted, still has some very dramatic moments and unconventional moments. Plankton finally stole the krabby patty recipe and the consequences of it were worse than merely driving the Krusty Krab out of business. It's justified because it was intended to be the GrandFinale, with all episodes produced afterwards chronologically occurring before the movie.

** The show itself never features any of the characters saving anything other than their treehouse and usually deals with problems faced by individual characters. And yet when the movie rolled around, suddenly everything needs to be "bigger"[[note]]Featuring spy gadgets, kids infiltrating corporate buildings, a runaway bus, explosions, and a bulldozer army[[/note]]. The movie is such a notable example that this Trope use to be known as "Why is Arnold saving something?".

** It's worth noting that ''Star Trek'' episodes with a clear villain are fairly rare, but 10 of the 12 ''Franchise/StarTrek'' films are centered (more or less) around a BigBad [[note]] ''Film/StarTrekTheMotionPicture'' and ''Film/StarTrekIVTheVoyageHome'' being the two exceptions[[/note]], usually one with a personal vendetta against the captain.

* ''Film/{{Help}}'': Granted, anything with the Beatles in at the peak of their power is fairly awesome anyway, but then you throw in the British Army's tanks surrounding the band playing near Stonehenge accompanied by StuffBlowingUp, the stadium of people singing 'Ode to Joy' to calm a tiger. That last one may just be a shot of StockFootage, but it's still epic.

** Slated to be played straight by ''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyTheMovie2017 My Little Pony: The Movie]]''. Simply put, after an AttackOfTheTownFestival, Twilight Sparkle and the crew are forced to abandon Ponyville and go on a world-travelling adventure in order to defeat the latest BigBad, while his [[TheDragon dragon]] is consistently hunting them down. Right off the bat a bigger scale of adventure and stake compared to the usual stuff.
