* After a six-year absence, the GIJoe action figure line was relaunched in 1982 with smaller figure size, a team concept, and an actual enemy to fight in the form of the Cobra organization. The revived figure line would continue until 1994. After several failed attempts at new lines, the 1980s "Real American Hero" figures would themselves be revived in 1997.
* Heck, even the lovable Weebles toy line that originated in the early 70s recently got a revival as you can obviously see in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yr83YRkbXpw&feature=related this commercial]] that surprisingly has a techno remix for the catchy jingle that obviously describes what happens when you push them around!

* The Toys/{{Furby}} was revived twice: once in 2005 (which got a special on Nickelodeon called "WesternAnimation/FurbyIsland"), and a very successful one in 2012, which was the top-selling toy of the year in 2012, and even got merchandise, much like the original Furbies.

In {{Theatre}} "revival" has a slightly different meaning, closer to a straight {{eemake}}. Any production that has not been performed in a significant amount of time and is brought back to the stage is called a revival - usualy it will be recast, sometimes it will get bonus material added in the form of a new song or two, sometimes the production values of the show such as the set design will get a revamp. The Tony Awards give separate awards to revival productions including Best Revival of a Musical and Best Revival of a Play.

See also {{Uncanceled}}, which is the restoration of the original, largely unchanged, as opposed to a new series based off the old. The differences are sometimes entirely behind-the-scenes. Compare AfterShow, which usually immediately succeeds the original show and typically involves at last a partial change in cast or setting.

** ''Series/LetsMakeADeal'' ran from the 1970s to the 1980s. It was revived in the late 2000s with Wayne Brady as the host. Many people liked Brady's take on the show and former host Monty Hall approved of Brady's performance.
** ''Series/{{Whammy}}'' is the revival of ''Series/PressYourLuck'' with the set being updated to a more modern look and the iconic Whammy character being rendered in 3D animation instead of the cartoony 2D animation. Most people hated the changes to the set and they also didn't like the host, Tom Newton, for being so over the top.

* Also from Hasbro are the ''MyLittlePony'' cartoons. Less frequent than ''Transformers'', but nonetheless they've had three or four different cartoons. ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' has experienced a massive explosion in popularity, due in no small part to the fact that the creative director is LaurenFaust of ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' and ''WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends'' fame,[[note]]Who apparently didn't particularly care for the original cartoons, and was a little skeptical when her bosses told her this is what they wanted her to be doing,[[/note]] who bent over backwards to make the show enjoyable for parents as well as the actual target demographic.

* ''{{Transformers}}'' does this constantly - in fact, whenever Hasbro feels like making more money. At first there was ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'', which took place in the same continuity as ''TransformersGeneration1'' and as such fully fits the defnition of a revival, but after that Hasbro decided to go the way of {{Alternate Universe}}s with ''Anime/TransformersRobotsInDisguise'', the Anime/UnicronTrilogy, Creator/MichaelBay's [[Film/{{Transformers}} movies]], ''TransformersAnimated'', and after gaining their own network, ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime''
