* There was a 1970's South African band named Rabbitt which achieved some minor local success. The guitarist, Music/TrevorRabin, went on to become a member of Music/{{Yes}} at their commercial height and writing the majority of their best-selling (and arguable MagnumOpus) album ''90125''. The other members of Rabbitt are mostly forgotten except as a footnote in Rabin's career.

** For the supporting cast (with the exception of the adult actors), Creator/RobertPattinson garnered more success and fame thanks to the Film/{{Twilight}} franchise and is still doing movies. Creator/TomFelton initially has something to start with after the franchise and Alfred Enoch (who played Dean Thomas) is one of the lead characters in ''Series/HowToGetAwayWithMurder''. The rest were either focused on modeling or in theatre.

** [[Creator/JuliaLouisDreyfus Julia Louis-Dreyfus]] can be considered ''Seinfeld'''s breakout, as she eventually went on to star in ''Series/TheNewAdventuresOfOldChristine'' and ''Series/{{Veep}}''. However, it took her almost a decade to finally find a successful post-''Seinfeld'' role.

** ''Series/{{Victorious}}'' during its run was one of Nick's most popular live action shows. After it ended in 2013, Music/ArianaGrande embarked on a massively successful music career as pop star, churning out numerous iconic hits in a short time and scoring platinum albums, and has never looked back since. Her meteoric rise has completely eclipsed the show itself, easily becoming the most successful musician ever produced by Nick, while the rest of cast (Leon Thomas III, Matt Bennett, Elizabeth Gillies, and, [[{{Irony}} most ironically]], the title star Creator/VictoriaJustice, who the show was meant to be a vehicle for) have long since faded into obscurity.

* After Music/TheJonasBrothers broke up in 2013 due to being dropped by Creator/TheDisneyChannel and having long-since faded into obscurity, two of its members form careers of their own to commercial (though not quite to the level of the band at their prime) and critical (much moreso than the band) success. The first was Music/NickJonas, who became a ContemporaryRAndB singer with a much more mature sound that was far removed from his original band. He scored a pair of hits with "Jealous" and "Chains" off his debut SelfTitledAlbum, and found success as an actor, starring ''Kingdom'' and ''Series/ScreamQueens2015''. Music/JoeJonas formed DNCE, a band has an upbeat funky disco sound, and scored a hit with "Cake By the Ocean", though only time will tell whether or not they'll be a one-hit wonder. Averted with Kevin Jonas.
