* The original ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' was a whopping 26 episodes and one season long. It spawned a massive fandom and franchise and created many modern Anime tropes whole cloth. The kicker? The show was initially unpopular on its original time slot (aimed at young adolescents) until an older audience discovered it and put Creator/StudioGainax on the map. Of course, it's since subverted this by becoming a CashCowFranchise - two movies were released shortly after the anime ended, and since then, tons of non-canonical merchandise and AlternateUniverse stories were made. This culminated in a big-budget [[Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion 4-part movie saga]].

* Aside from the recording of, and very few and unsuccessful promotional appearances for, their debut album ''Wednesday Morning, 3 A. M.'' in 1964, and numerous short-lived reunions since the breakup, the career of SimonAndGarfunkel spanned between 1966 to 1970, releasing five studio albums and the soundtrack to the film ''Film/TheGraduate'', becoming one of the most popular and influential duos of TheSixties and helping to popularize FolkRock music throughout the world.

* While Pets.com was one of the many victims of the dot-com bubble in the late 90's and early 2000's, the sock puppet used in their advertisements has kept a considerably high profile since then, having sold Bar None insurance for over a decade.

In serial media (comic books, anime, western cartoons, etc.), this trope can manifest as a work that was cut short or simply not meant to be a LongRunner, but the impact it left on the genre is still felt.

* ''Series/TheGreatestAmericanHero'': As lampshaded by Peter Griffin in the title quote, the show only ran for about 2.5 seasons, but is still more or less the go-to show for Superhero parodies. The show lives on today in a comic book, as well as many shoutouts in everything from ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'' to ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'' to ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' to ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'' to ''WebVideo/TheCinemaSnob''. Of course, having an awesome theme song will do that for you.

* Willy Brandt was elected chancellor of Germany in 1969 with one of the slimmest majorities in German history (12 seats out of 518). He was reelected by a big margin in 1972 and resigned over an espionage scandal (a personal aide turned out to be a Stasi spy) in 1974. In those five years, he single handedly set the pace for German foreign policy of the next decades. His "Ostpolitik" (Eastern policy) and the "Wandel durch Annäherung" (change through rapprochement) approach set the tone for East-West relations and there are memorable images (Brandt [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warschauer_Kniefall kneeling in Warsaw]], Brandt in East Germany and deafening cries of "Willy Willy") are still known to most Germans today. He was the first German chancellor to visit Israel and won a Nobel Peace Price in 1971 (which was announced in parliament during a session). In domestic policy he helped lower the voting age from 21 to 18, which helped in the aforementioned 1972 elections which he won largely on the youth vote. To this day many influential leftists in Germany cite Willy Brandt as one of their major inspirations.
