** Richey James Edwards - the guitarist and lyricist for the British rock group Music/ManicStreetPreachers mysteriously vanished in 1995, shortly after the release of the band's album ''The Holy Bible'', which vividly detailed his struggles with depression, self-harm and anorexia. The band continued on after his disappearance, and became commercially successful, but it's widely considered the band's most acclaimed and seminal work came when Edwards was in the group. The three albums that he recorded with the band are considered to integral to the creation of the Music/{{Britpop}} movement and remain highly influential in the British indie rock scene.

* The original, prime-time version of ''WesternAnimation/TheJetsons'' ran for just one season in 1962–63, but syndicated reruns on Saturday mornings kept it popular enough for a [[UnCanceled revived version]] in the '80s and even a 1990 [[TheMovie feature film]].

* ''Series/ChappellesShow'' only lasted two seasons, but it's right up there with ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' as one of Comedy Central's most popular shows, to the point that it's still aired regularly in syndication and on it's home channel, and it's sketches have reached memetic status. The show was highly influential even after it's run (spawning more than a few [[FollowTheLeader imitators]]) and some people regard it as one of the greatest sketch comedies ever made.

* The professional arch-rivalry between Creator/{{Disney}} and Creator/WarnerBros was [[FriendlyRivalry fairly civil]] and all a brief span in the history of American animation, [[BrieferThanTheyThink lasting only from the late 1930s to the mid 1950s]]. To this day, though, it's considered one of the most famous rivalries in Hollywood. It has had such a lasting impact on pop culture that many people tend to refer to it in the present tense, unlike almost all of the other classic Hollywood rivalries. It helps that, unlike most of those other classic rivalry players, Disney and Warner are still very much in business.
** This rivalry is kind of making a comeback, since WB are the owners of Creator/DCComics, while Disney own [[Creator/MarvelComics Marvel]]. Both companies' respective cinematic universes are hot competition right now.

* England's Interregnum – the period between the execution of Charles I and the restoration of the monarchy under Charles II – lasted only 11½ years, from 1649 to 1660. However, the events during that time had a profound impact on English culture – it showed the English people would no longer take kindly to absolute rule, and was the first of many times Parliament would prove its superiority over the King. The excesses of UsefulNotes/OliverCromwell and his supporters left the English with a ''very'' poor opinion of Puritanism (which led to more Puritans going to America, which irreversibly impacted the already rather Puritan culture there). And, Cromwell's Commonwealth militia would eventually become the British Army (it's the only UK military branch without "Royal" in the title because it wasn't established under Royal authority).
* UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler and [[UsefulNotes/NaziGermany the Nazi party]]. Ruled UsefulNotes/{{Germany}} for a mere twelve years, causing untold death (around 35 million), suffering, and destruction. The effects of their rule are felt across the world to this day. …No one said the impact had to be a ''good'' one. To take some positive out of it, it was Hitler's regime and WWII that made (most) of the world give up fascism.

* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Penn_Central_Transportation_Company Penn Central]] existed all of two years before filing for bankruptcy and was folded into Conrail (a state owned freight railroad) six years after that, but it arguably single-handedly lead to the creation of UsefulNotes/Amtrak and the biggest bailout in the US up to that point as well as the closest the US ever came to nationalizing a major industry in peacetime.

* French director Jean Vigo directed only two feature films, ''Zéro de conduite'' and ''L'Atlante'', before his death at 29 years old. He is nonetheless considered one of the greatest directors of all time, and ''massively'' influenced French cinema, including the directors of the FrenchNewWave (he was a favourite of Creator/FrancoisTruffaut). There's even a prestigious award named after him, the ''Prix Jean Vigo''.
