* Apparently this was the reason the anime version of ''Manga/BoboboboBobobo'' got canned as parent groups claimed the show promoted bullying.

* * ''WesternAnimation/WanderOverYonder'' fans launched the [[http://savewoy.tumblr.com/ #SaveWOY]] campaign. They bought episodes on iTunes, wrote letters and emails, and they sent [[https://www.change.org/p/walt-disney-encourage-disney-to-make-wander-over-yonder-season-3 a ton of]] [[https://www.change.org/p/disney-xd-bring-wander-over-yonder-back-for-season-3 petitions to save]] [[https://www.change.org/p/the-walt-disney-company-tell-disney-to-bring-wander-over-yonder-back-for-a-third-season the show]]. Creator/CraigMcCracken actually respectfully honored the fans' commitment, as did the cast and crew of the show, but there was no 11th hour save. The last episode of WanderOverYonder aired June 27, 2016, and there has been no word from Disney about reviving it or otherwise bringing it back in other forms. But the fans continue to fight.

* ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' is a very unusual, and very famous, example. [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam The original series]] suffered from low ratings and had its episode count cut from 49 to 39 (though the staff begged for an extension and ended up with the odd number of 43 episodes). After this, creator[=/=]director YoshiyukiTomino had the idea to recut the series into a trio of {{Compilation Movie}}s; thanks to positive press from anime magazines and word of mouth, the trilogy was a colossal success, and the rest is history.

* When ''VideoGame/EarthBound'' was announced for the Japanese UsefulNotes/WiiU VirtualConsole [[NoExportForYou but nowhere else]], fans posted on Miiverse pleading Nintendo to release it in the west. In a later Nintendo Direct, Nintendo announced an international release for ''VideoGame/EarthBound'', citing everyone's responses on Miiverse as the reason.

* Ever since ''Series/GirlMeetsWorld'' got canceled by Disney Channel, fans have been endlessly requesting that Creator/{{Netflix}} would pick up the rights to the show to continue it (complete with it's own hashtag for the campaign, [=#GirlMeetsNetflix=]), asking Disney Channel to release the rights so it can be continued there, and some even ask Creator/{{Hulu}} to pick it up.[[note]]Except the show is a hit worldwide for its life lessons, so sending it on Hulu is not a good choice as the service is only available in the US and Japan, unlike Netflix which is available worldwide.[[/note]] Some even plan to send paper airplanes to the three companies involved as a ShoutOut on the transition scenes where Riley throws the paper plane. Even some internet sites [[http://www.justjaredjr.com/2017/01/10/girl-meets-world-fans-rally-netflix-to-pick-up-the-show-girlmeetsnetflix/ noticed the big]] [[http://www.whats-on-netflix.com/news/girl-meets-world-fans-ask-netflix-to-revive-disney-show/ efforts the fandom]] [[http://www.seventeen.com/celebrity/movies-tv/news/a44333/girl-meets-world-fans-think-netflix-is-the-last-hope-to-save-the-show/ is doing]] just to have the show continue. As of the moment, Netflix is planning to discuss the probability of getting the rights from the channel, with most of Netflix's Customer Service representatives encouraging the fans to keep it up.
** When all was said and done, the ploy failed as creator Michael Jacobs took to Twitter to [[https://twitter.com/GMWWriters/status/859787187537141760 proclaim]] that he wasn't able to get another company, Netflix included presumably, to pick up the show.

* ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'' campaign group Operation Head Pigeons and convention company Wasabi Anime joined forces for a letter writing campaign titled Project Massive. Invadercon II: Doomcon attendees sent letters to Nickelodeon with proof of donations to New York based charity Toys of Hope in lieu of physical items. Subsequently the mailing address went online for a second phase not requiring a donation, with visible Twitter based support from Creator/RichardStevenHorvitz and Rikki Simons (voices of Zim and Gir respectively). The show cancelled midway second season, contrary to popular belief, solely due to Viacom's budget cuts after their stock fell. It remained out of production all these years because an enthusiastic (once again contrary to popular belief) Creator/JhonenVasquez wants the show to return in its full budget glory and no less than that. OHP awaits results from Viacom AND further minor updates from Nick New York press department's Katelyn Balach, who allegedly agreed to collect and present the letters to the powers that be. In 2015, a comic series was announced, and the show enjoys syndication on Nicktoons fairly regularly. In April 2017, it was announced that there would be a new made-for-TV movie that would air the same weekend as the new Hey Arnold! Jungle Movie (see above).

* Fans of the pre-Paul F. Tompkins multi-comedian version of ''BestWeekEver'' have discussed sending cans of soup to VH-1, the point being that we already have ''TheSoup'', we don't need another one-host pop culture mocking clip show.
