* ''Film/{{Garfield}}'', going into the "how Jon got his pets" story that the comic and cartoon never touched. The sequel, meanwhile, was straight-up PrinceAndPauper. The live-action film made Jon much less of a dork than he is in the comics and even had him successfully wooing Liz. The comic strip accordingly hooked the two of them up around the same time, though movie Jon married her while comic Jon has yet to get that far. Curiously, Creator/BillMurray played Garfield, who had previously been played by the late Lorenzo Music in [[WesternAnimation/GarfieldAndFriends the popular 80s cartoon series]]. Lorenzo Music previously played Peter Venkman, Bill Murray's character in ''Film/{{Ghostbusters 1984}}'', in the cartoon series ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters''.

* ''WesternAnimation/YogiBear'', which features the characters from the show as CGI creations and looks like it's going to be a homage of the show. So far it seems very close to the source material, and Music/JustinTimberlake's Boo Boo voice is actually pretty good. It's basically the cartoon in live-action, unlike other adaptations that take the InNameOnly approach.

** The [[Film/StreetFighter 1994 movie]] starring Creator/JeanClaudeVanDamme and Creator/RaulJulia is the first and better known of the two, having come out at the peak of the franchise's popularity shortly after the release of ''[[VideoGame/StreetFighterII Super Street Fighter II Turbo]]''. It was criticized for taking creative liberties with the established canon of the games at that point, mostly due to the filmmakers ignoring the tournament plot of the games in favor of having the movie revolve around Guile leading an international task force against M. Bison and Shadaloo. It has since developed a bit of a cult following throughout the years.
