* ''Anime/BloodC'' is Creator/{{CLAMP}}'s first and (probably last) original anime work after the low BD/DVD sales and the mixed-to-negative reception of the show. A movie, ''Blood-C: The Last Dark'', tried to undo some of the damage, but was still weighed down with the same flaws as the TV series and bombed at the Japanese box office (though its BD sales were still moderately good). This led CLAMP to move their studio to Kyoto and return to some of their previous manga works (''Manga/{{xxxHolic}}'' and ''Manga/TsubasaReservoirChronicle'') and putting some of their newer ones (''Manga/DrugAndDrop'' and ''Manga/{{Gate7}}'') on hold.

When ''Tsubasa World Chronicle'' finished publication in 2016 with only two volumes, CLAMP released a sequel of ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura'' which will also have an anime in the future. Time will tell whether ''Cardcaptor Sakura'' will become a CareerResurrection or just another attempt to milk the franchise.

* In 2010, Creator/WarnerHomeVideo left Cinram, which had handled its videodisc replication business for nearly seven years since purchasing Warner's videodisc replication facilities, in favor of a more lucrative deal with Technicolor. Within five years, Cinram was bought out by, coincidentally enough, Technicolor. It's been said that the Warner exit did a lot of damage to Cinram not even renewed deals with Creator/TwentiethCenturyFox and Warner Music Group could repair.

* [[Creator/MaxAndDaveFleischer Fleischer Studios]] (of ''WesternAnimation/BettyBoop'' and ''ComicStrip/{{Popeye}}'' fame) was for a time one of the most popular animation studios in the U.S. and Creator/{{Disney}}'s biggest competitor throughout the 1930s, but its attempts to [[FollowTheLeader follow Disney]] into the feature animated film market with ''[[WesternAnimation/GulliversTravels Gulliver's Travels]]'' and ''Film/MrBugGoesToTown'' in the late 1930s/early 1940s (coupled with a move to UsefulNotes/{{Miami}} from [[UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity New York]] around the same time) drove the studio into serious debt. After a fairly public spat between brothers Max and Dave Fleischer ended up sending the studio into disarray, their distributor Creator/{{Paramount}} responded by purchasing the studio in 1942 and firing the brothers, reorganizing and renaming it Creator/FamousStudios. Although they had some success with ''WesternAnimation/CasperTheFriendlyGhost'' and the SupermanTheatricalCartoons in the 1940s, Paramount could never recreate the pre-''Gulliver's Travels'' level of success that the studio had in the 1930s, and it was ultimately shut down in 1967 after Paramount itself was purchased by Gulf+Western.

** And finally, the box fofice failures were the beginning of the end for founder and CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg himself, with his ambitions against Disney finally getting the better of him. His studio's [[WesternAnimation/{{Home}} next]] [[WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda3 two]] films were financial successes, but not on high enough of a level to please shareholders. This, combined with increasing pressure from said shareholders, eventually led to Katzenberg agreeing to sell the studio to [=NBCUniversal=] after just thirteen days of talks (after scrapping a plan to take the company private with PAG Asia Capital) and divest his involvement with DWA on a heavy basis.

* ''WesternAnimation/PenguinsOfMadagascar'' was instrumental in ending Creator/DreamWorksAnimation[='=]s reign as an independent, pioneering animation studio after more than a decade. It took several job losses over the next two years to get to that point:
** When [=DreamWorks=] anticipated it would lose $49 million from the film due to the film's poor domestic box office intake, Pacific Data Images, who helped produce this film and the studio's famed ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}}'' series, was shut down as part of a restructuring of the company.
** It also ended the long run of chief creative officer Bill Damaschke, who had been with the studio since 1995, and the short run of COO and longtime Disney executive Mark Zoradi, who had been with DWA since earlier that summer (Zoradi would take over the Cinemark theater chain months later), as part of the restructuring.

* In 2010, tech company Fusion Garage released their own PC tablet called the [=JooJoo=], meant to compete with the new iPad. They had originally started this project with [=TechCrunch=] founder Michael Arrington, but eventually broke off and did the tablet themselves, incurring a lawsuit from Arrington in the process. When the tablet hit store shelves, its ungainly size and weight compared to the coming iPad, along with a battery-life issues and poor lag, ended up making the tablet a failure and unplugged Fusion Garage's business within two years, owing creditors $40 million.
