* ''Ride/BackToTheFutureTheRide'': In 2006, when Universal Studios announced their decision to replace the attraction with ''Ride/TheSimpsonsRide'' at both the Hollywood and Orlando parks, fans immediately went to the web posting several petitions in order to save it. However, the Hollywood park execs decided to hold a ceremony a month before the official closing in 2007. Notably, Creator/ChristopherLloyd and ''BTTF'' co-creator Bob Gale were in attendance and a contest was held for the grand prize of [[CoolCar a classic 1981 [=DMC-12=] [=DeLorean=]]] alongside other franchise memorabilia. As a kind gesture, Universal later made the ride videos available to the public on the 25th Anniversary Blu-Ray re-release of the ''BackToTheFuture'' trilogy in 2010. The last operating iteration of the ride closed at Universal Studios Japan in 2016.

* ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' is both a success story and a saving throw failed. When Creator/ComedyCentral took it off the air, both a letter campaign and an ad in ''Variety'' saved it and brought it to the Creator/SciFiChannel. However, after three seasons there, the powers that be yanked it again and not even a letter campaign would save it.
