** Whereas ''JAG'' was canceled after 10 seasons, ''NCIS'' is still a ratings juggernaut after 12 seasons (and counting) and has become so successful that it has become its own franchise (''Series/NCISLosAngeles'' and ''Series/NCISNewOrleans''). At this point, most viewers probably don't even remember that ''NCIS'' was a spin-off itself. When by-then-retired [[DaChief Admiral Chegwidden]] makes a cameo in the 10th season finale of ''NCIS'', it's basically an EasterEgg to ''JAG'' fans because the average ''NCIS'' viewer had no idea he used to be a main character.

* Cruise Ferry's are ocean going vessels used to transport people and their cars over long distances, essentially being a combination between a cruise ship and a ferry and the name implies. However they are derived from a much older classification of ship called cargo liners. Cargo liners carry people and general cargo. They were never all that popular as they usually didn't address why a ship would need to carry both.

* In 1981 Hasbro released a line called My Pretty Pony, based around a 10" tall pony doll with grooming tools, accessories and so on. In 1983 they spun off a new line of smaller, simpler, baggable or pocketable pony dolls called Franchise/MyLittlePony... which needs no further introduction (apart from noting that the franchise that it launched has, for the most part, been running ever since). My Pretty Pony was nothing like as successful, and basically died when the original 1981 production run was exhausted.

* While the ComicBook/XMen are still one of the most popular comic book franchises of all time, SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}} has become a massively popular character in his own right, to the point that his comics are treated like their own thing, independent of the franchise they spun off from while still sharing [[Franchise/MarvelUniverse the same universe]]. He even gives ComicBook/{{Wolverine}} a run for his money, [[WolverinePublicity publicity-wise]].
