* Creator/MichaelCrichton wrote the scrip for the 1973 film ''Film/{{Westworld}}'', which was about a bunch of tourists who go to the eponymous western themed amusement park, the animatronics gain sentience and start hunting down the park attendees. In 1989 his book, ''Literature/JurassicPark'', was published, and tells the story of a group of tourists who go to an island populated with cloned dinosaurs, which through a series of events, escape from their enclosures and proceed to eat the attendees.

** The basic premise of dinosaurs cloned for the purpose of a theme park gone wrong was a plot point in ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'''s "Cursed Earth" arc.

* After having had a huge hit with ''Series/TheHollywoodSquares'' (1966-1981), creator MerrillHeatter recycled the "quiz show with celebrities in a ginormous board" premise twice: first with ''Series/{{Battlestars}}'' (1981-83), then ''AllStarBlitz'' (1985).

* In TheEighties, Creator/{{Kenner}}'s ''Rose-Petal Place'' toy line was essentially the ''WesternAnimation/StrawberryShortcake'' franchise (which Kenner had made toys for) with characters themed/named after flowers instead of food.

** The 1982 Coy and Vance-era episode titled -- appropriately enough -- "Coy vs. Vance" uses the same premise as an episode from two years earlier, "Carnival Of Thrills." Both episodes were about one of the Duke boys (Bo in the earlier episode, Coy in the newer show) falling for the voluptuous operator of a stunt show, the other Duke cousin learning that the new girlfriend has a dark secret to hide about the show (in both cases, the mechanic directed to sabotage the vehicle used in the main event stunt to cause an accident and the show to collect insurance), Bo/Coy refusing to believe them to the point where a fistfight breaks out ... and Bo/Coy learning in the end Luke/Vance were right and then teaming up to either successfully perform the stunt and/or expose the scheme and bring the stunt show operator and her henchmen to justice.

** While the modern Heisei era shows more variety, it still falls into this, especially when certain writers are part of it. ''[[Series/KamenRiderAgito Agito]]'', ''[[Series/KamenRider555 Faiz]]'', and ''[[Series/KamenRiderKiva Kiva]]'' all feature identical PoorCommunicationKills plotlines (detailed on that trope page) and all three were written by Creator/ToshikiInoue.


Added DiffLines:

* ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' has some seasons that come off as little more than English "dubs" of ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' shows. Opinion-wise, it can actually be something of a toss-up: ''[[Series/PowerRangersSamurai Samurai]]'' is generally considered one of the worst seasons (despite ''[[Series/SamuraiSentaiShinkenger Shinkenger]]'' being a fan-favorite) because of the perceived lazy writing and poor acting. On the other side of the coin, ''[[Series/PowerRangersTimeForce Time Force]]'' also cleaves fairly closely to its source show ''[[Series/MiraiSentaiTimeranger Timeranger]]'', but fans tend to have a better opinion of it thanks to the changes that ''were'' made and the quality of the acting.
