Letters are no longer all that gets sent in, partly because although the internet makes communication easy, the general consensus is that the networks will take tangible mail more seriously. Taking that simple fact to an extreme, fans will, en masse, send in items that are significant to the characters and/or situations found in the show they're trying to save. It appears now that sending food or snack items is an automatic Circular File for the items, and the show is not likely to be saved by fan effort directed this way.

* Speaking of Disney, fans were taken aback by the [[ShockingSwerve abrupt]] discontinuation of ''VideoGame/DisneyInfinity'' and have made a lot of noise as a result. These range from just rallying to out-right [[UnCancelled uncancel]] the game (even if just to the end of the fourth fiscal year so ''Infinity'' could have its last hoo-rah for Christmas), to licensing the rights to the game and figures to someone else, to at least releasing the promised Disney/PeterPan figure or even the heavily teased figures of [[WesternAnimation/GravityFalls Dipper and Mabel]] and/or WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck as a final thank-you to the fanbase.[[note]] What makes these four characters significant to the fanbase is that Peter Pan was specially chosen to gain a figure for the Toys-to-Life game by some of the series's biggest fans, Mabel (and by extent, Dipper) were the winners of a Player's Pick poll, and Darkwing Duck has been teased since ''Disney Infinity 2.0'', and it would seem downright insulting to the fanbase to hype up or green-light any one of these figures only to never release them.[[/note]] Time will tell if any of this amounts to anything...

* ''WesternAnimation/CodeLyoko'' fans have been campaigning for a fifth season ever since the show ended in 2008. After some years of deliberation, [=MoonScoop=] made a new show, entitled ''Series/CodeLyokoEvolution'' and made it live-action.

* ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'' got screwed out of its impending GrandFinale movie known as ''The Jungle Movie'' back in 2002, when the first film, ''Hey Arnold! The Movie'' flopped on the box office. Furthermore, show creator Craig Bartlett left Nickelodeon after a contract disagreement with execs. The series [[CutShort ended]] with two huge cliffhangers: Arnold's response to Helga's AnguishedDeclarationOfLove in the first movie, and the fate of Arnold's parents, which was brought up by the hour-long episode "The Journal". For '''over a decade''', it seemed that The Jungle Movie being made was an impossible dream. Even Bartlett had accepted the fact that it would never get made. Despite this, in 2009, fans began sending mail to Nickelodeon and writing online petitions hoping the movie would get made. Long story short: in November 2015, Nickelodeon announced exactly what ''Hey Arnold!'' fans had been fighting for: a new Arnold movie written by Craig Bartlett that would bring closure to the series, tie up loose ends, and reveal the whereabouts of Arnold's parents. (It hasn't been ''directly'' stated to be The Jungle Movie, but all signs point to this being the case.)

* ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' fans organized a letter-writing campaign to save the show, and it was brought back for a fourth and final season.



* ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'' fans bought what they could of the first half of season 2 to try and bring the second half to dvd, but Buena Vista still won't budge. Strangely enough, unlike other canceled examples here, it still airs...but in the dead of night, as filler. Also, the creator himself has gotten involved to try and revive the property through comic book sales, as well as continue the story away from the CanonDiscontinuity season made after he left. There doesn't seem to be a rhyme or reason, or even an organized effort, so their offices randomly get gobs of celtic/scottish-centric objects, pictures, what have you, every now and then. On June 25, 2013, they released the second half of season 2 for select members of a group and later a general retail release October 14, 2014. This is 7 and a half years and nearly 9 years of effort, respectively from the release of the first half.
