* ''Series/SesameStreet'':
** When actor Will Lee, who played Mr. Hooper, passed away in 1982, the producers were faced with the usual options for dealing with loss on a kids' show: [[TheOtherDarrin cast a new actor]], or [[PutOnABus have the character simply leave the show]] (either with an explanation, such as he retired, or [[ChuckCunninghamSyndrome without]]). [[TakeAThirdOption Instead]], ''Sesame Street'' ran an episode where Big Bird understands that [[KilledOffForReal Mr. Hooper had died]], it was OK to miss him, and that even though life would never be quite the same when someone beloved dies, it will get better. In tribute to him, the portrait Big Bird was going to give him still hangs in his nest to this day, more than 30 years later.

* Madge Sinclair, the voice actress for Sarabi in ''The Lion King'', passed away at the tail end of 1995. By then, ''The Lion King II: Simba's Pride'' was in its earliest stages of production, and reportedly Sarabi was meant to appear in that as well. But due to the passing, the filmmakers decided against recasting her and left Sarabi absent out of respect for Sinclair.

Added DiffLines:

** Not quite an ''actor'', but the Fifth Doctor's could-have-been companion Kamelion, a shapeshifting robot, had to be written out of the series when the mechanical prop's software designer, Mike Power, died in a boating accident. As he'd only just finished programming the expensive apparatus and hadn't had the chance to write down the instructions, the prop malfunctioned constantly and became such a liability that the character spent the rest of his tenure in a back room of the TARDIS, then was given a MercyKill in Five's last story.
