A series which has outlived its creator can (and often is) put through {{retcon}}s, CharacterDerailment, ExecutiveMeddling, etc. Sometimes this is simply for financial reasons; other times, it's because the current series-runner is also RunningTheAsylum. It can even be accidental.

* WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse, WesternAnimation/DonaldDuck, WesternAnimation/{{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 [[WesternAnimation/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]]

* ''ComicStrip/{{BC}}'': Johnny Hart's daughter and grandson continued the strip after he died. Like ''Dick Tracy'', listed below, Hart's death is generally considered to have made the comic better, as over the previous decade he had used it (especially Sunday strips) as a platform for his fundamentalist Christianity.

* The ''Literature/StClares'' series by EnidBlyton. The St. Clare's series consisted of six novels that spanned the six years set in the school. Three books covered the first year, one for the second, one for the fourth, and one for the fifth. In 2000, Pamela Cox wrote two more St Clare's books, one set in the third year and one in the sixth; at least one was just a pastiche of previous plots with wildly out-of-character moments and anachronistic phrases.
