* WesternAnimation/StrawberryShortcake and Franchise/CareBears in Asia: Both went from Playhouse Disney Asia to Boomerang Asia, and then later to Cartoonito Asia thanks to [[ExecutiveMeddling Hasbro's meddling]] (which also caused the shows to become unavailable in a lot of parts of Asia). And then both went back to Boomerang Asia when Cartoonito Asia was shuttered. It's unknown right now if they have a home anywhere else in the region after Boomerang Asia got closed down for Toonami Asia.

* ''Series/HolmesOnHomes'' was the only show with a pulse on the US Discovery Home network. When Discovery decided to make that network Planet Green and mothball the entire Discovery Home lineup, HGTV quickly snapped up Holmes for their own channel; an easy call as HGTV '''{{Canada}}''' is actually the one that produces the show. It got a timeslot upgrade to Sunday evenings and continues to do just fine for HGTV, and [[TakeThat outlived Planet Green]], which became the American-centric Destination America on Memorial Day 2012.
* ''HomeMovies'' from Creator/{{UPN}} to Creator/AdultSwim.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/MonsterHunter'' had been exclusive to Sony platforms for years before the development team chose to release ''Monster Hunter Tri'' on the UsefulNote/{{Wii}} due to the high cost of developing games for the UsefulNote/PlayStation3 at the time. While ''Monster Hunter Portable 3rd'' had been released on the UsefulNotes/PlayStationPortable, all current main series games have been primarily released on the UsefulNotes/Nintendo3DS[[note]]''Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate'' had a UsefulNotes/WiiU port as well, though the system's lack of popularity killed the possibility of future ports to the system[[/note]], with official word being that they simply wanted to reach a wider audience over the UsefulNotes/PlayStationVita. That statement doesn't stop the spread of rumors claiming they had a falling out with Sony over the ''Portable 3rd'' incident[[note]]The planned localization of the [=PS3=] port had been [[NoExportForYou vetoed by Sony of America]] due to their desire to have trophies implemented and Capcom's desire to get the US Ad-Hoc Network updated so the game would have online play, a very important feature in the West due to the fanbase being more spread out than in the series' native Japan[[/note]], however.
