* The very short lived VanBeurenStudios WesternAnimation/FelixTheCat shorts, an attempt to revive the franchise after the original theatrical cartoons fell to the wayside due to multiple factors (including the death of his owner Pat Sullivan and the latest efforts absolutely paling in comparison to the new MickeyMouse sound films, and the fact that Felix still had a popular newspaper comic running) only lasted for three shorts (with a fourth one never getting past the story stage) due to VanBeurenStudios abruptly going belly-up when RKO negated their contract in favor of distributing Creator/{{Disney}} [[WesternAnimation/ClassicDisneyShorts shorts.]]

* The Creator/TedHughes book "Ffangs the Vampire Bat and the Kiss of Truth" ends with Ffangs [[HumanityEnsues becoming human]], his sister getting kidnapped and Ffangs setting off to find her. The last line of the book is "The adventures of Ffangs will be continued in the next book", but the sequel was either never written or never published.

* Mid-to-late [[TheNineties '90s]] hip hop supergroup The Firm -- consisting of Music/{{Nas}}, Foxy Brown, AZ, and Cormega (who was later ousted and replaced with Nature) -- was hyped as one of the hottest new groups in hip-hop after their formation, appearance on Nas' ''It Was Written'' album, and signing to Dr. Dre's record label. In 1997, they released their debut album... which got such a lackluster reception by both consumers and critics that any interest in more music from the group was nixed, and they went their separate ways the year after. While Brown has mentioned that there have been discussions of The Firm reuniting, the project seems to be an OldShame for nearly everyone involved.

* ''Saban's Series/MaskedRider'', an Americanized adaptation of ''Series/KamenRiderBlackRX'' and one of several Saban projects hastily compiled to cash in on the success of ''PowerRangers''. The result was so painfully homogenised that ''Franchise/KamenRider'' creator Shotaro Ishinomori forbid any more American adaptations of his work. This ban would persist until 2009, when ''Series/KamenRiderDragonKnight'' was developed as a series much closer in spirit to the original source. ''Dragon Knight'' itself suffered from this as well. Poor toy sales and ratings (partly due to ScrewedByTheNetwork) plus financial troubles with Adness Entertainment meant that any possible follow-up adaptation was dead. It didn't help that the final two episodes didn't even air on TV, only online.

*''Film/ShinKamenRiderPrologue'' was so named for a reason, but we didn't get past the prologue. He was intended to eventually 'evolve' into a more Rider-like form in future installments.

* Creator/JohnKricfalusi's ''ComicBook/SpumcoComicBook'' had a very short lived run for unknown reasons. The initial run of the comics only lasted three issues under Creator/DarkHorseComics in 1995, with Creator/MarvelComics distributing one more issue in 1997 before the comics were cancelled altogether.

The initial run of the comics only lasted three issues under Creator/DarkHorseComics in 1995, with Creator/MarvelComics distributing one more issue in 1997 before the comics were cancelled altogether. Per word of Spumco employee Stephen Worth, it was a Catch 22 situation that killed the series early; comic book stores were the wrong market for funny comics, since readers were mostly interested in superhero comics instead of the gag oriented stories, and they couldn't get regular book stores to stock their comic books.
