* The most likely factor in the cancellation of ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyTest''. According to TV producer David Straiton, he and Scott Fellows created the concept for Johnny Test back in 1996, and unsuccessfully pitched it to a number of networks. Years later, he found out that Scott Fellows got the show on TV and David Straiton got no credit and no money from it, which led to David Straiton suing Scott Fellows for fraud and accounting malfeasance.

** The worst part? On Amazon, a used copy of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will set you back about $33.31 for the 360 version and $56.99 for the [=PS3=] version. That's excluding postage costs. For a game that's still being played competitively to this day, that's a bit much.

* In a similar vein as the example above, 4Kids couldn't continue with [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2003 their]] ''Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'' adaptation after Creator/{{Nickelodeon}} acquired the ''TMNT'' franchise from Mirage Comics. Unlike the example above, however, 4Kids lost the rights to their adaptation to Nickelodeon as well.

* The pre-October 1950 ''WesternAnimation/{{Noveltoons}}'' will likely take a while to get an official home video release as Paramount sorts out royalty issues over the use of the characters in the shorts (Paramount owns those shorts, while all the shorts from that point until 1962 are owned by Creator/{{Universal}}, who owns the characters in question). These issues, ironically, were the result of [[HoistByHisOwnPetard Paramount's own dumbfuckery]], having sold the characters and the post-October 1950-1962 cartoons to Creator/HarveyComics, which Universal now owns.
