* The long running radio and television program ''Radio/OurMissBrooks'' concluded with a [[TheMovie cinematic]] [[GrandFinale series finale]]. The movie dispenses with the usual series theme, opening with a fanfare and a cheery new tune.

* Due to copyright and licensing issues, this trope occasionally occurs with DVD releases of TV series when [[HomeVersionSoundtrackReplacement a theme song has to be removed and replaced with generic music]] (most notably the DVD releases of MarriedWithChildren, for which the studio were unable to obtain the rights for "Love and Marriage", and had to substitute a lame generic piece of music. Public domain releases of shows such as BeverlyHillbillies and PetticoatJunction have also run into this.
* John Sullivan wrote the theme music for ''OnlyFoolsAndHorses'' when he wrote the first series, but the BBC decided to go with a different theme composed by Ronnie Hazelhurst. Sullivan disliked the new theme, and before the second series aired he persuaded the producers to use his own compostions instead.

* Starting with season three, ''Series/HappyDays'' dispensed with Bill Haley & His Comets' "Rock around the Clock" in favor of an original song called "Happy Days" by Pratt & McClain which had previously been played over the closing credits and which had become a hit in its own right. (Haley likely had no cause to complain, as the use of his song on "Happy Days" had helped return it to the Billboard charts in 1974, 20 years after it was first recorded.)
