* ''Series/XenaWarriorPrincess'' was also a spinoff but was easily more popular than ''Series/HerculesTheLegendaryJourneys'', no doubt due to the obscene levels of [[LesYay implied lesbianism.]] It was also much more willing to be experimental in its stories, and considering how different Hercules could be, that's saying something.

something. Though Xena did suffer from one of the worst cases of SeasonalRot ever so ''improved'' might not be a completely accurate statement. Considering that Hercules was much better at being consistently good Xena may be the only example of a show being a SurprisingImprovedSequal AND an example of Sequelitis.

* ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'' was a great (if a bit flawed) show, but its successor ''{{WesternAnimation/Animaniacs}}'' is considered an improvement in nearly every way, and has aged ''much'' better to the point where it's considered ''one of the greatest cartoons of all time''. Some fans even consider ''WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain'' to be this to ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}''. It helps that it was based on what is generally agreed to be the show's best segment.

** Among the Wolverine spin-off trilogy, the critically-bashed ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine'' was followed by a SurprisinglyImprovedSequel with ''Film/TheWolverine'', which was itself followed by ''Film/{{Logan}}'', critically adored (92% on Rotten Tomatoes) and praised by many critics as [[http://www.businessinsider.com/logan-reviews-critics-2017-3/#its-dark-and-risky-1 "one of the best superhero movies ever"]] for its darker tone.

** ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad'', critically acclaimed for its action, [[ShowDontTell visual storytelling]], acting, surprising amounts of CharacterDevelopment and depth despite a very simple story, and relentlessly feminist message. It earned universally positive reviews - 97% on Rotten Tomatoes (a point higher than ''Film/SchindlersList'') and [[OutOfTheGhetto an Academy Award nomination for Best Picture]], unheard of for a [[ScifiGhetto summer action movie]]. It was only a few weeks after its release that fans and critics started calling it one of the greatest action films ever made.

** ''Film/MadMax'' and ''Film/MadMax2TheRoadWarrior''. The first was impressive for a low-budget action film to come out of Australia, though by today's standards is rather slow-paced and tedious (despite some excellent auto-stunts). The second film practically popularized the ScavengerWorld and TheApunkalypse in film, filled with balls to the wall action and is the best remembered film in the series, at least until...

* ''Fanfic/Intercom'', the FanSequel to ''InsideOut''. It builds on the premise of the movie, continues to explore different directions to take the many characters, introduces new characters that aren't carbon copies of previous characters, shows the consequences of the previous film, and the new premise isn't just a straight rehash of the original. Sounds like all the basic building blocks to a sequel just as good if not better than the original.

* ''WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTail'''s sequel, ''Fievel Goes West'' is a definite BaseBreaker, but there's a good portion of the fanbase who see it as better than the original. It certainly has a lot more going for it than say, the sequels to [[WesternAnimation/TheLandBeforeTime other]] DonBluth [[WesternAnimation/TheSecretOfNIMH2TimmyToTheRescue classics]]- it has some very solid animation for the time, and a few genuinely great songs.
