* ''Series/TalesOfTheGoldMonkey:'' The Gold Monkey of the title never has any importance past the first episode, and only shows up in the background of Louie's bar in the remainder of the season. On top of everything else, it's actually made of brass.

** Speaking of the Golden Girls, spin-off ''Series/EmptyNest'''s pilot was made as an episode of the Golden Girls, and almost everything about it was dropped after the pilot, including it's premise. The pilot starred an older married couple dealing with the fact that their children had all left home; The series was about a widower whose two adult daughters still lived at home. The only things which carried through to the series were the main character's job as a doctor, and the wacky neighbor played by David Leisure (although that character also changed name and career).

* ''Series/{{Constantine}}'' replaced the pilot's ''female lead'', who was featured heavily in the trailers. Liv was the daughter of a powerful wizard and the pilot looked like it was setting her up to be John apprentice. But audiences hated because she was such a stupid AudienceSurrogate, and ''ComicBook/{{Hellblazer}}'' fans hated her because she wasn't from the comics, so the end of the pilot was rewritten to get rid of her. Zed, a character from the comics, replaced her in the second episode.

* The very first episode of ''{{Series/Webster}}'' had Art [=LaFleur=] as a regular, playing George's co-worker at the radio station. However, since ExectuiveMeddling wanted the show to focus on Webster and not the adults, he was deemed extraneous and never appeared again.
