Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/LittleBear'' was often listed as ''Maurice Sendak's Little Bear'' in reference to the animated television series, but this is an oddball case. Creator/MauriceSendak only ''illustrated'' the original ''Little Bear'' books, which were written by Else Holmelund Minarik. This even resulted in RecursiveAdaptation titles that were illustrated by someone other than Sendak still carrying a ''Maurice Sendak's Little Bear'' logo. It's not entirely surprising though given that the ''Little Bear'' name has avoided the OneMarioLimit, with several other picture book and picture book series out there with a character called "Little Bear."

* ''KennethBranagh's Film/{{Hamlet}}''. Oddly, part of what made it so different was how closely Branagh, as lead actor ''and'' director, chose to follow the exact words of the play (to the point where he added back lines which have been missing for three hundred years).

* ''Creator/DickClark's New Year's Rockin' Eve''. Going by TheOtherWiki, Dick's name was first attached in the wake of his stroke when he could no longer host it himself. (If it did show up before that, it would have been ''Actual Creator's X'' and ''Host's X''.)

* In the 1960s kids' cartoon "Beany and Cecil" (also called "Matty's Funnies with Beany and Cecil"), creator Bob Clampett shoehorned his name in every episode about six times, including in the opening theme song, which also features a cartoon rendering of him. Every half-hour episode consists of three cartoon shorts, and in the beginning of ''every'' one of them, the main characters sang "so here are Beany and Cecil in--a whole half-hour--Bob Clampett cartoo--oon!" TheOtherWiki reports that he was known as "a shameless self-promoter." Well...yeah.

** Done with their TV shows too. Curiously, TheOtherWiki (and a JerkAss on the Disney Wiki) insists on ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfTheGummiBears'' and ''WesternAnimation/HouseOfMouse'' always being referred to with the "Disney's" preface.

* ''Executive's X'' -- Putting the name of a producer or other executive with big-name power on the posters for much the same reason as, but this is worse because these people are usually directors or writers themselves. There's an implicit suggestion that the named person had something to do with it creatively when he most likely just gave it some money (or, at most, came up with a plot outline and a few characters). Sometimes rendered as ''Creator/StevenSpielberg Presents: WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}''. [[DirectorDisplacement Many people still labour under the impression that Tim Burton directed]] [[invoked]] ''The Nightmare Before Christmas'' (it was really HenrySelick; Tim Burton came up with the original story, but didn't write the screenplay).

Added DiffLines:

* OlderThanSteam: Although the thing was built long before, few not present in 1480 know the Art/SistineChapel was named after the man who had it restored to glory, UsefulNotes/ThePope Sixtus IV. Still, he had no real involvement with the artwork which makes the Chapel famous today, so it's not as if we've forgotten a secret genius of Western Art.

** Possibly so that Disney has some trademark to fall back on should someone challenge its ownership of a generic term or PublicDomainCharacter's name. For example, they couldn't trademark ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars}}'', so they trademarked "Disney {{Pixar}} Cars". Likewise, should someone invalidate [[http://tarr.uspto.gov/servlet/tarr?regser=serial&entry=71295828 Disney's trademark on "Pinocchio"]], that wouldn't affect a trademark on "[[Disney.{{Pinocchio}} Disney's Pinocchio]]". Certain TV listings may list ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'' as ''Disney's Recess'', but not usually.
