** ''Dragon Ball Z'' itself began in weekly syndication in 1996 before Creator/CartoonNetwork famously picked it up and added it to its Toonami block in 1998, where it finished and was in reruns for almost ten years. In addition, TheWB's Saturday morning Toonami block premiered the Garlic Jr. Saga episodes in the Summer of 2000 before they were rerun in Cartoon Network.

* The ''Franchise/{{Halloween}}'' franchise has a history of this. [[Film/{{Halloween 1978}} The first film]] was produced and released independently by Compass International Pictures. The [[Film/HalloweenII1981 second]] and [[Film/HalloweenIIISeasonOfTheWitch third]] films were picked up by Universal. The [[Film/Halloween4TheReturnOfMichaelMyers fourth]] and [[Film/Halloween5TheRevengeOfMichaelMyers fifth]] films were also produced independently, but distributed by Galaxy International Releasing (who had a deal with 20th Century Fox). Disney-owned Miramax bought the rights to the franchise in 1994, and released ''[[Film/HalloweenTheCurseOfMichaelMyers Curse]]'', ''[[Film/HalloweenH20TwentyYearsLater H20]]'', and ''[[Film/HalloweenResurrection Resurrection]]'' under their Dimension Films label. Dimension inherited the sequel rights when it jumped ship to The Weinstein Company, who released the two Rob Zombie films (with Creator/MetroGoldwynMayer handling theatrical distribution for the first). Dimension dropped the franchise in 2015, and the rights reverted back to Miramax (now independent from Disney). Trancas Films (Moustapha Akkad's production company, who ''has'' produced all the films) is working with Blumhouse on the next film while Miramax shops the project to new distributors.

* Creator/SamRaimi's ''Evil Dead'' series. All of them were produced by Raimi's Renaissance Pictures, but the [[Film/TheEvilDead original film]] was released by Creator/NewLineCinema, ''Film/EvilDead2'' was Rosebud Releasing (a division of Embassy, whose catalog is now owned by [=StudioCanal=]), and ''Film/ArmyOfDarkness'' was Universal domestically, and MGM overseas. The [[EvilDead2013 reboot]] was [=TriStar=] Pictures, and ''Series/AshVsEvilDead'' is currently on Starz. Because of this, ''Ash vs. Evil Dead'' could not legally reference events from ''Army of Darkness'' in its first season, but were able to some in the second season after reaching an agreement with Universal.
** Anchor Bay had the home video rights to the original trilogy for the longest time, though now they only have the first film and the ''Ash vs. The Evil Dead'' TV series. Lionsgate has the second film, and ''Army of Darkness'' is back with Universal, though they did license the film to Scream Factory. The reboot is on Blu-ray from Sony Pictures. Now Anchor Bay is owned by Lionsgate, so they now technically have the whole franchise except for ''Army of Darkness'' and the reboot.

* Many of the contributors of ''Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses'', including [[Creator/DougWalker That Guy himself]], started out on Website/YouTube. In That Guy's case, he was driven to create the site because Website/YouTube started removing his videos due to copyright issues.
** Some of them seem to have moved back to YouTube recently, such as Doug, Lindsey, Brad and Todd on the League of Super Critics, while still continuing on Blip. Doug even go as far as to make a few YouTube jokes in recent Nostalgia Critic episodes.
* ''WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation'' started out (very briefly) as a series of Website/YouTube reviews before getting picked up as a proper series by the online "magazine" ''The Escapist''.
* Likewise ''WebAnimation/ExtraCredits'', which then hopped ''again'' when ''The Escapist'' cut out the funding for the series, moving back to Website/YouTube briefly before ending up on ''Webcomic/PennyArcade's'' PATV. After that, they got their own website with their videos hosted on their youtube channel, and now the website is mostly defunct and content is split between two youtube channels [[https://www.youtube.com/user/ExtraCreditz ExtraCredits]] and [[https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC-7oMv6E4Uz2tF51w5Sj49w Extra Play]].

* ''Manga/OnePiece'' from Fox Box (later [[Creator/FourKidsEntertainment 4KidsTV]]) to Creator/CartoonNetwork. Partway through their broadcast, 4Kids just stopped airing the series on their block (alegedly due to content restrictions). The remaining 4Kids dubbed episodes later aired on Creator/{{Toonami}}, leading to the eventual Creator/FUNimation dub. In 2013, the Creator/FUNimation-dubbed episodes returned to premiering Toonami, now a part of Creator/AdultSwim.

* For ''Anime/DragonBallZBattleOfGods'', Creator/FUNimation partnered up with Screen Vision to release the film into US and Canadian cinemas. By the next year when it came time to release ''Anime/DragonBallZResurrectionF'', they had their own theatrical distribution arm ([=FUNimation=] Films), and released the film into theaters themselves. For some reason, the US releases of those films retain TwentiethCenturyFox credit on them.

** The two anime films were both produced by Production I.G., but they have different distributors. The original film was released by Shochiku in Japan, and Manga Entertainment (at the time, owned by [=PolyGram=]) outside Asia. Unlike most anime properties, Manga outright ''owns'' some distribution rights to the film permanently since they co-funded its production. Manga was sold to Anchor Bay in 2004, who was bought by Starz in 2006, who themselves were bought by Lionsgate in 2016. The second film, ''Innocence'', was released by Toho in Japan and DreamWorks' [=GoFish=] Pictures overseas (though Manga reached a deal to release it in the UK and Australia). After Creator/{{Paramount}} inherited their back catalog, they licensed it to Bandai. When DreamWorks' deal expired, the film was out of print for years until FUNimation licensed it in 2016.
