* ''Film/BillAndTed'' had an AnimatedAdaptation titled ''WesternAnimation/BillAndTedsExcellentAdventures'', which lasted for two seasons. The first season of the animated series aired on Creator/{{CBS}} and was produced by Creator/HannaBarbera. It actually featured KeanuReeves, Alex Winter, and Creator/GeorgeCarlin reprising their roles from the film and pretty much expanded on the time-traveling premise of the first film. The second season aired on Fox, where ExecutiveMeddling to {{retool}} the series as a tie-in to their (quickly forgotten) live-action series, also titled ''Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventures''. The show was now animated by Creator/{{DiC|Entertainment}} and Bill & Ted were now played by their actors from the live-action TV series. Needless to say, the show didn't last a third season.

* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'', while not a true example, did borrow quite a few elements that were introduced in Creator/TimBurton's two Batman films. Most obviously, the show used a slightly reworked version of DannyElfman's theme for its opening and closing sequences.

* ''Mama'', based on ''I Remember Mama'', was an early (1949-1957) television example. It was actually the first show to be cancelled and then revived in response to a deluge of viewer mail.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'' was an AnimatedAdaptation of the ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'' film series, and the series actually dealt with the CelebrityParadox by having the live-action movies exist in-universe as movies "based on" the events of the cartoon series (the cartoon Ghostbusters even attend the first movie's premiere). The "real" in the title, though, comes from a legal dispute over {{Creator/Filmation}}'s own ''[[WesternAnimation/FilmationsGhostbusters Ghostbusters]]'' cartoon, which, because it was based on an older TV series, was [[DidntThinkThisThrough meant to force the studio to choose another name]].
* All three of JimCarrey's 1994 breakout hits (''[[Film/AceVentura Ace Ventura: Pet Detective]]'' ''Film/DumbAndDumber'', and ''Film/TheMask'') were made into Saturday morning cartoons, despite their mature content (though all three cartoons did have a sizeable amount of risque jokes that [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar slipped by the censors]]). Out of the trio of Jim Carrey movies made into cartoons, ''WesternAnimation/TheMask'' was probably the most-remembered by 1990s cartoon nostalgists and had a longer shelf life (three seasons; two seasons ran on Creator/{{CBS}} and one ran in syndication). ''Film/DumbAndDumber'' lasted only a season on Creator/{{ABC}}. ''Ace Ventura'' had a good run on both Creator/{{CBS}} and {{Nickelodeon}} (and even had SethMacFarlane as a show writer), but was mostly memorable for having a pair of {{Crossover}} episodes with ''WesternAnimation/TheMask'' ("The Aceman Cometh," which was the series finale of "The Mask" and "Have Mask, Will Travel," which was the season finale of ''Ace Ventura'''s second season).

* ''[[Franchise/RoboCop1987 Robocop]]'' had ''two'' [[WesternAnimation/RoboCopTheAnimatedSeries cartoon]] [[WesternAnimation/RobocopAlphaCommando versions]] (along with the usual scads of toys and other merchandising aimed at children} -- which seems a strange demographic for a movie that was rated "R" for its over-the-top violence, gore and near-constant [[ClusterFBomb dropping of the f-bomb]].

* Dreamworks Animation broke into the business with ''ThePenguinsOfMadagascar'', and had ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'', ''WesternAnimation/MonstersVsAliens'' and ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon'' followed Suit.
** ''WesternAnimation/{{Turbo}}'' is a special case in that the follow-up series, ''Turbo F.A.S.T'', isn't by Dreamworks themselves.

* MGM's ''AllDogsGoToHeaven'' had a series, fittingly titled ''All Dogs Go To Heaven: The Series'' (with a pretty nice, sitcom-y [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c46RanY5CV0 theme song]]). According to the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/An_All_Dogs_Christmas_Carol Other Wiki]], the [[DirectToVideo direct-to-video]] movie ''An All Dogs Christmas Carol'' was aired as its final episode.

*** ''New Adventures'' was actually just the start of the series' expansion, followed by numerous movies (both theatrical and direct-to-video), another series (The Book of Pooh), more movies, and pre-school series ''MyFriendsTiggerAndPooh''. While not without its detractors, the ''Franchise/WinnieThePooh'' franchise has arguably garnered the most positive response [[{{Sequelitis}} compared to other Disney continuations]].

* The true "winner" of turning an R-rated movie into a cartoon for children has to be ''WesternAnimation/HighlanderTheAnimatedSeries''. [[ClusterFBomb WTF!!!!]] Fortunately, all of the decapitations happened slightly off screen.

** ''WesternAnimation/TimonAndPumbaa'' spun off from ''Disney/TheLionKing''; it had surprisingly good imitations of the film's voice actors.
*** A second ''Lion King'' show, ''The Lion Guard'', will air in 2015.
