* ''Literature/TheLostWorld'' was also adapted as an A&E miniseries, in association with the ''WalkingWithDinosaurs'' guys, starring Bob Hoskins, James Fox, and Peter Falk. It was a bit more faithful to the source, but - more importantly - the deviations they made were [[AdaptationDistillation actually effective]].

** ''Secrets of the Surface World'' supplement. One of these exists on a plateau in the Amazon rain forest. A British expedition reached it and returned, without any proof of their findings but with a fortune in uncut diamonds (a ShoutOut to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's novel ''Literature/TheLostWorld''). There's a hint that the plateau connects to the Hollow Earth mentioned above.

* Atlantis from "The Atlantis Enigma" in BlakeAndMortimer. An empire created before recorded history, it was destroyed (along with much of the Earth's surface) by a falling meteor and the ensuing tidal waves; the survivors eventually build a new empire in vast underground caverns under the Atlantic, which is what Blake and Mortimer discover. They've progressed to the point of becoming an AdvancedAncientAcropolis, mastering anti-gravity technology, laser weaponry, and space travel, among other things.

** ''The Lost Continent'' (originally known as ''Beyond Thirty'') - the titular continent is Europe, in an AlternateHistory in which WorldWarI never ended because eventually no organized government was left to make peace. The United States never entered the war, and in fact made laws forbidding any ship to cross certain lines of longitude (hence the original title).
