** Similarly ''Film/StarTrekVITheUndiscoveredCountry'' was living in the shadow of the flop of The Final Frontier and the new restricted budget literally made the film impossible to make until a new head came in at Paramount, who knew director Nick Meyer personally and agreed to provide as much money as it would take so that the film could be made.

** When ''Anime/DragonBallZai'' was licensed by Funimation fans had hoped that Creator/CartoonNetwork would air the show and were quite shocked when they decided to pass on it. Then Nicktoons announced that they would air it. It not only proved to be a HUGE success for them, it also made Viacom consider airing anime on their channels. Then when the Buu Saga came around Nicktoons passed... and it got saved by Toonami on Creator/AdultSwim, where it airs with no censorship.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan'' was nearly canceled in its first season by [[Creator/{{Toonzai}} TheCW4Kids]] (who had just replaced Creator/KidsWB) due to it not being a Creator/FourKidsEntertainment program. However, Creator/DisneyXD successfully managed to negotiate it out of their hands and moved it to that network for another season- though it still fell to cancellation in the end, but due to being ScrewedByTheLaywers.

* The dub of ''Anime/DigimonFrontier'' was aired at six every morning for a few years before the creation of Jetix finally gave it a more favorable timeslot, meaning now people would actually know it existed.

* The dub of ''Anime/DigimonFrontier'' was aired at six every either in the early morning or in the afternoon during its' run (as a result of Creator/{{Disney}} buying out Creator/FoxKids and moving ''Digimon'' to their UPN spinoff of ''OneSaturdayMorning''), then rerun for a few years before the creation of Jetix finally gave it a more favorable timeslot, meaning now people would actually know it existed.

* With "happy" sci-fi like ''Franchise/StarWars'': ''Film/ANewHope'' and ''Film/{{Superman}}'' nobody thought a dark, depressing, and outright horrific sci-fi could be made. Nevertheless Creator/TwentiethCenturyFox took the chance on little-known British director Creator/RidleyScott and a movie simply called ''Film/{{Alien}}''.

* ''WesternAnimation/BewareTheBatman'' was [[InvisibleAdvertising barely advertised]] at all on Creator/DCNation, eventually put on hiatus for no reason other than to make room for more ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'' episodes, and then delayed. Almost a year later, the show was picked up by Creator/{{Toonami}} on Creator/AdultSwim, who decided to show all 26 episodes at 3:00am weekdays, only to have it pulled from their hands when Cartoon Network decided to write the series off their taxes. [[ItGetsBetter Fortunately]], Toonami made a last-minute decision and did a marathon of the final seven episodes right before it disappeared forever.

** A bit of a zig-zag: The "Paul is dead" myth has yet another story as to how it developed. EMI had qualms about the public accepting the Beatles' 1966 song "Paperback Writer" because it wasn't a typical pop song about love and romance. Brian Epstein, the boys' manager, thought of drumming up publicity for it by having one of the Beatles "die." George and Ringo refused, and John offered to take part but since he was a practical joker, everyone would have caught on. So Paul was the one who "died." At that point, all he cryptic clues that have led people to believe to this day that the [=McCartney=] out today is either a twin brother or a highly-trained lookalike were strategically planted.

* ''SakuraTaisen'', being largely a DatingSim series, has long been labeled a holy grail of localization, with plenty of hardcore fans in the West who knew there was little reason anyone should give the games a chance. Enter [[Creator/NipponIchi NIS America]], who in April 2010 decided to give the US the fifth game in the series. Which was originally released in 2005. On the UsefulNotes/PlayStation2, a system that has been long since succeeded by the UsefulNotes/PlayStation3. And they even went through the trouble of having it ported to the Wii, a much more relevant system in this generation when it comes to games with such graphic quality.
