* Spoofed in ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'' where Control Freak threatens to reboot the Titans and reveals he did once before to ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans''. He admits that was a mistake. The Titans go on to Retool themselves to avoid this.

** At least she kept top billing. Fritzi Ritz had a similar flapper theme, but was pushed to the side by her niece and the strip renamed ''ComicStrip/{{Nancy}}''.

Everything can be changed! Done for a variety of reasons, ranging from poor UsefulNotes/{{ratings}} to [[RealLifeWritesThePlot someone leaving the show]] to [[ExecutiveMeddling network fiat]], but basically means everything (premise, casting, setting, tone, writing, general emphasis) can be "tweaked" to take the show in a different direction, which can result in some EarlyEpisodeWeirdness. Not everything changes; some retools are subtle, some not so much. Drastic retooling runs the risk of alienating the current viewership ("[[TheyChangedItNowItSucks change is bad!]]"), if any.

* ComicStrip/BeetleBailey started out as a strip about a ne'er-do-well college student. Then, very early in the series' run, the main character joined the army, where he has been for the last sixty-three years.

Added DiffLines:

* The Detroit-era ''Comicbook/JusticeLeagueOfAmerica''. Basically, ''Justice League'' wasn't as popular as it'd been in it's heyday, so the Gerry Conway got rid of most of the heavy hitters like {{Batman}}, {{Superman}} and WonderWoman in order to focus on a younger, more diverse team of new characters like Comicbook/{{Vixen}}, Gypsy and Comicbook/{{Vibe}}. He was hoping to ape the success of the ''New Comicbook/TeenTitans'' and the ''Comicbook/XMen'', but [[DorkAge it went over about as well as you'd expect]]. Thankfully, its failure did lead to the ''Comicbook/JusticeLeagueInternational'' revamp.

** The 2009 ''Film/StarTrek'' retooled ''the entire franchise'' after the dismal box office results of ''Film/StarTrekNemesis''. The focus was changed to a [[AlternateContinuity different timeline]] following the (now changed because of [[spoiler:Romulan influence]]) adventures of the crew from the original series. This has been widely panned by the fandom, and resulted in such an upsurge of fan films set in the original timeline (and often featuring original actors reprising their official roles) that Paramount has begun trying to suppress the fandom 'detool movement' through the legal system.
