* ''Series/WheelOfFortune'' used an Alan Thicke tune called "Big Wheels" until 1983, when it was ousted for "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wf37Dgj92QM Changing Keys]]", composed by show creator MervGriffin. "Changing Keys" was re-orchestrated several times (with Merv having little to no hand in the last two remixes) until the theme was finally retired in 2000 for an unnamed theme by Steve Kaplan. And ''that'' theme was retired in 2006 for the current tune, "Happy Wheels" by Frankie Blue and John Hoke.

* Downplayed for ''TheNewAdventuresOfWinnieThePooh''. The same theme was used throughout the series, however later episodes rerecorded it with a slightly different instrumentation. Also while earlier episodes used a short orchestral variant for the ending credits, later episodes used an instrumental version of the full opening theme. Played straight with the ''Growing Up with Pooh''[=/=]''The Magical World of Winnie the Pooh'' DVD releases of the series however.[[/folder]]

Added DiffLines:

* To promote their then-upcoming dub of ''Anime/DigimonDataSquad'', Disney decided to dub the remaining Digimon movies that had stayed in Japan. When it came to dubbing [[Recap/DigimonAdventure02M2DiablomonsCounterattack the 02 movie]] and both ''[[Recap/DigimonTamersM1BattleOfAdventurers Tamers]]'' [[Recap/DigimonTamersM2TheRunawayDigimonExpress movies]], however, they didn't have the rights to "Digimon are the Champions" as their themes. Instead, they had to use the ''Anime/DigimonFrontier'' theme (and associated score, for that matter) across all [[Recap/DigimonFrontierMovieRevivalOfTheAncientDigimon four]] movies.
** When ''Anime/DigimonAdventureTri'' was dubbed into English by Toei and Eleven Arts rather than Saban, rights issues led to the lack of the original English theme song again. This time, [[Main/SuspiciouslySimilarSong a new song with a similar feel to the original]] called "Digimon are Back Again" was recorded and used.

* ''Series/TheTwilightZone'' originally had a dreamy theme by BernardHerrmann - the one everybody knows didn't come along until season two, when CBS decided it needed something more upbeat. Herrmann wrote two alternative themes which weren't used, and Music/JerryGoldsmith wrote one which was also turned down; CBS music head Lud Gluskin then put together two short tracks written by Marius Constant, and the rest is history (ironically, Constant was never credited with the theme on the show).

* For the first three seasons, ''Series/TheDeadZone'' used the moody and evocative "New Year's Prayer" by JeffBuckley. At the top of season 4 this was replaced with "Dead Zone Epic" by Blues Saraceno, to the annoyance of many fans. The visuals, original created for and timed to the Buckley version, remained unchanged, making the new tune feel like a poor fit--at least until you got used to it. The new tune was in place for two seasons; Season 6 had TitleCard credits.

* Oddly subverted for anime based on [[YoshihiroTogashi Yoshihiro Togashi's]] works. Both ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'' and the 2011 version of ''Manga/HunterxHunter'' [=OPs=] stayed the same ("Smile Bomb" and "Departure" respectfully) with only the visuals really changing to reflect the current story arc. Played straight with the [=EDs=] which used different songs.
