** ''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}'' and ''ComicStrip/KrazyKat'' are among the few strips that ended with their creators.[[note]] ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'', ''ComicStrip/TheFarSide'', and some other strips have ended too, but their respective authors are still alive.[[/note]] ''Peanuts'' is an especially notable aversion of this trope; the very last ever Peanuts strip ran ''one day before'' the death of author Charles Schulz, who specifically forbade anyone to continue the strip after his death.
** On the other hand, the ''Peanuts'' TV specials did continue after Schulz's death. Bill Melendez, the director of nearly every ''Peanuts'' special since ''WesternAnimation/ACharlieBrownChristmas'', was still in charge, but then he died too, which also failed to stop new ''Peanuts'' TV specials from being made.

** Speaking of Clark, another one of his well-known projects, ''Series/{{Pyramid}}'', was revived the same year he died (five months after, in fact). Though that version sank like a stone, another edition has since popped up and is running on Creator/{{ABC}} hosted by Michael Strahan.
* ''Series/{{Password}} Plus'' ended up outliving original host Allen Ludden by about a year. ''Password'' as a franchise would continue on with two more incarnations, ''Super Password'' and ''Million Dollar Password'', over the course of the next two decades.

* ''Series/FamilyFeud'' and ''Series/ThePriceIsRight'' have outlived producers Creator/MarkGoodson and Bill Todman. The former outlived its first two hosts, Richard Dawson and Ray Combs[[note]]although this is due in part to Combs committing suicide in 1996[[/note]], as well as Gene Wood, who announced both hosts' versions. The latter outlived its original creator, Creator/BobStewart.
* Going back further in the game show field, ''Series/TheJokersWild'' outlived its creator and original host, Creator/JackBarry, by two years. (Creator/BillCullen took over shortly before Jack's death.)

* MickeyMouse, DonaldDuck, Goofy and the rest of the Disney gang, to the point where U.S. Copyright laws must be rewritten every decade or so to prevent [[ClassicDisneyShorts the original shorts]] from falling into the PublicDomain.[[note]] A bit of paranoia on the company's part; even if every single one of those old cartoons fell into the public domain tomorrow, the Walt Disney Corporation will not lose control of those characters, because they're all still ''trademarked''. As they know full well (and publicly reminded people upon learning they'd accidentally let a Donald Duck WartimeCartoon go P.D.), Trademarks, so long as they're maintained, ''never'' expire. As an example, about half of the classic WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes shorts are public domain, including the origin toons for almost every major character, but Creator/WarnerBros still owns the characters (and the masters for the cartoons).[[/note]]
