Added DiffLines:

* Rock band Downplay were together for over ten years, but never had anything close to mainstream success. Dustin Bates and Ron [=DeChant=] started a side project called Starset. Starset quickly became one of the hottest new acts on rock radio, scoring a top 5 hit with "My Demons" and several more top 20s, achieving more in one year than Downplay did in a decade.

** ''Coast to Coast'''s second spinoff featured Moltar, another Space Ghost villain, broadcasting action cartoons from the Ghost Planet. Creator/Toonami was a ''massive'' smash hit that eclipsed all the other descendants of Space Ghost, with its amazingly high production values and [[{{Uncancelled}} resurrection]] of several syndicated {{anime}} and WesternAnimation series. While it was later [[{{Retool}} retooled]] to get away from its Space Ghost roots, ditching Moltar and replacing him with [[RobotBuddy TOM]], it remains a genuine icon of today's pop culture and the most popular spinoff of this family yet. It spent four years cancelled after being massively ScrewedByTheNetwork for several reasons, but ''one'' AprilFoolsDay showing of Toonami four years later was enough to launch a groundswell of fan support that got it {{uncancelled}}. Yeah, it's a phenomenon.

Yeah, it's a phenomenon. In late 2015, a ShoutOut was made to the block's roots, with TOM's spaceship being destroyed and his escape pod landing at what appears to be Moltar's old studio on Ghost Planet, which TOM promptly reactivated to broadcast anime once again.



** The G3 came into existence primarily because West Germany wanted their standard rifle to be locally produced but Fabrique Nationale wouldn't let them do so with the FAL that everybody else was using. The [=MP5=] based on the G3 is still in use with multiple countries, both by police and military forces, and is seen as the definitive submachine gun of the post-war era.

Outside of Germany, the G3 had a modest following and was used primarily by Third World armies that weren't Soviet-aligned but also couldn't afford the FAL; it ran a distant third behind the AKM and the FAL in worldwide sales.

** 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 (''NCIS: Los Angeles'' and ''NCIS: New Orleans''). At this point, most viewers probably don't even remember that ''NCIS'' was a spin-off itself.

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.

Added DiffLines:

** Also New Orleans, which is much more famous than the original one in France, although, like New York, it was named after the Duke of Orléans and not directly after the city he held.


Added DiffLines:

*** How about the original [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isle_of_Portland Isle of Portland]] that the one in Maine was named after? It has a population of about 12,000. A far cry of Oregon's 610,000 or even Maine's 66,000.
** One that would inspire not only one but ''multitudes'' of spinoffs overshadowing it: Springfield, a rural village located in Essex County, England. How did it became important? A native of the village who became one of the leaders of the Massachusetts colony renamed a colonist town after his home village, which grew high and popular enough to inspire more aspiring cities around the U.S., including the ones in Missouri, Illinois, and [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons that one]].


Added DiffLines:

** When one is referring to Mérida, it's usually the city in the Mexican state of Yucatán that they're talking about, rather than the one in Spain (which all other Méridas are named after), Venezuela, or the Philippines. However, the one in Venezuela also gave its name to the state that surrounds it, so to South Americans, it might not be the case.
* In the Eastern Mediterranean, there's Tripoli. Everyone knows that it's the capital of Libya. Everyone hardly knows that it's named after a Greek city in the Peloponnese, which is no small village itself by having a population of about 60,000, but far less populous than Libya's 1.1 million inhabitants. Even without Libya, there's another Tripoli in Lebanon, which has a 220,000+ strong population.
