* In 1966, ''{{Shane}}'' got turned into a TV series. Because David Carradine is the natural substitute for Alan Ladd.

* Coming in second, ''Series/StargateSG1'' replaced the entire cast (save for a few minor characters), but was able to leverage the implied potential of the movie's set-up with minimal retconning. They later reversed the process by making two DTV movies in turn [[TheMovie based off the series]].

* Allegedly there was even talk of doing one of these for the ''Film/AlienTrilogy'' of all franchises, but apparently that was a bridge too far and it never got past the planning stages. Some of the weirder entries in the toyline originated with this concept.
* ''Starship Troopers'' spawned a CGI-series ''The Roughneck Chronicles''. It was surprisingly well done, but massive ongoing behind-the-scenes production problems doomed it.

* All three of Creator/JimCarrey's 1994 breakout hits (''Film/AceVenturaPetDetective'', ''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 Creator/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).

** ''WesternAnimation/LiloAndStitchTheSeries'' followed up on [[Disney/LiloAndStitch the original film]] by introducing audiences to Jumba's other experiments (who were briefly alluded to in the first movie's prologue). In this show, Lilo and Stitch had to find his "cousins" around Kauai, reform them, name them, and find them a place where they could use their abilities for good. Like the ''Aladdin'' example above, this show was also bookended by a pilot movie (''WesternAnimation/StitchTheMovie'') and a finale film (''WesternAnimation/LeroyAndStitch''). Unlike the other entries in this list however, this show managed to be referenced in a later DAC film[[note]]Splodyhead/Experiment 619's cameo in ''Disney/BigHero6''[[/note]] and also introduced a BreakoutCharacter who now gets a steady stream of merchandise released to this day.[[note]]Stitch's love interest, Angel/Experiment 624[[/note]]

* ''Disney/LiloAndStitch'' received a second TV series in 2008 (read about the first one under the "Western Animation" folder below) called ''Anime/{{Stitch}}'', which took Stitch and the other alien characters and placed them on a fictional island in the Ryukyus, with him getting a new best friend over there. However, it did not tie-in to the earlier entries of the franchise until the heavily-edited English dub a year later, and would later officially establish itself as a TimeSkip SequelSeries in its third season. (Even then, that season was produced and animated by [[Creator/ShinEiDoga a different studio]] who took over from [[Creator/{{Madhouse}} the first two seasons' animation studio]].)



* ''[[Series.WarOfTheWorlds War of the Worlds]]'' followed on from the 1953 film, taking the large time lapse as justification for introducing an entirely new set of characters.

** ''WesternAnimation/AladdinTheSeries'' is a well-received TV series that took place after the events of the first movie's sequel, ''Disney/AladdinTheReturnOfJafar''. The second movie was intentionally a pilot, introducing a reformed Iago and the new voice cast. The third movie ''Disney/AladdinAndTheKingOfThieves'' was the finale, and watching the movie trilogy without knowledge of the series, things won't make any sense.

** There was also a ''Disney/{{Hercules}}'' cartoon series, a midquel of sorts in which he attends [[HighSchool an academy]] for gods and mortals with classmates like Icarus and the seer Cassandra. Hades was also a recurring villian, even though the movie didn't have Hercules meet Hades until he was an adult.

** Also averted with ''Disney/TheRescuers''. Similar to ''Atlantis'', originally, Disney was actually going to make a TV series off of that film, but due to the financial failure of ''Down Under'' (which became the only true flop of Disney's Renaissance era), combined with [[AuthorExistenceFailure the death of]] Eva Gabor, it, as with all future ''Rescuers'' films, were scrapped, and was actually eventually reworked into the show ''ChipandDaleRescueRangers'' instead.

** Arguably, the most popular, and most remembered Disney cartoon, airing just after ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'', ''WesternAnimation/TheNewAdventuresOfWinnieThePooh''. This one borrowed the title from the movie it's spun from, and altered it, like ''WesternAnimation/JungleCubs''.
*** ''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 ''WesternAnimation/MyFriendsTiggerAndPooh''. While not without its detractors, the ''Franchise/WinnieThePooh'' franchise has arguably garnered the most positive response [[{{Sequelitis}} compared to other Disney continuations]].
