* PaddingtonBear - an open-top blue taxi by OMC Electronics in 1993 based on the 70s stop-motion series, and later, a regular taxi by Jolly Roger (which comes in two colors- Dark Red and Black) which was based on the 1997 Creator/{{Cinar}} series, The Adventures of Paddington Bear.

* WesternAnimation/{{Cars}} - Lightning [=McQueen=], courtesy of EMT. Merkur has re-released [=McQueen=] with a different facial expression and a new soundboard and has also spawned Tow Mater and Lightning [=McQueen=] again, but this time, in his Dinoco paint job. Also spawned unlicensed rides of [=McQueen=], Mater and the rest of the cast. Motoi did make a "Phantom Plane" ride with the same colour and face as Mater.

* Classic Creator/{{Disney}} characters - Perhaps most infamously, a questionably designed Donald Duck ride. The ride itself was designed so that Donald was laying on his back, chilling, while the rider would be on his tummy... and his bill would end up being close to any given rider's crotch. The ride was originally designed by [=ElektroMobilTechnik (EMT) GmbH=] when they first secured the Disney license, but the license persisted when Merkur bought over EMT, in which then production of those rides were dropped and more sensible designs were made. However, some of the EMT-era machines are still out in the open, including in Johnny's Saloon in Huntington Beach, California, USA, where it's used as a naughty photo op (for adults, of course). Merkur still holds the license to manufacture Disney rides, however the license is now shared with Cogan Italy. Disturbingly however, Chinese ride makers have started making rip-off versions of said offensive Donald ride. Apparently they don't understand why it's so popular but want a piece of the pie nontheless.

* Series/BearInTheBigBlueHouse - Two versions were made by [=Fun2Learn=], both of them feature Bear, Pip and Pop on a boat. The first version, released in either the 1990s or the early 2000s, had boat sounds (could be something to do with licensing) and no start message, whilst the second version, released in October 2002, had boat sounds as well as the theme tune and a start message. Both versions feature Noel MacNeal as the voice of Bear. In Welling Tesco, there was a Bear in the Big Blue House ride with the sounds muddled up.

* Disney/TheLionKing - Made by Coinstar or Merkur Electronics, based off Pumbaa. One could argue that they missed an opportunity to produce a Simba cub ride, or even an adult Simba one, given the numerous adult Simba knockoffs in Asia (and that Bafco UK produced a safari van ride with a lion cub that looked suspiciously like Simba as a cub on it and also Whittaker Bros. have spawned the Park Ranger, Big Top Circus and Toytown Zoo in the 90s featuring the Simba cub on the roof too).
