* ''[[Disney/OneHundredAndOneDalmatians 101 Dalmatians: The Series]]'' got a tie-in novel released shortly before the show premiered, "Cruella Returns". It tied four episodes together ("You Slipped a Disc", "Leisure Lawsuit", "Cone Head", and "Snow Bounders"), with many differences from what actually happend in the episodes (such as Mooch's gang being made up of a bunch of random stray dogs instead of Dipstick and Whizzer, etc.).

* Many animated Disney and Pixar films will inevitably have thousands of tie-in novels and storybooks. Some of them are straight-up retellings of those movies' plots, while others are sequels to said movies. For example, ''Disney/TheLionKing'' was actually accompanied by several tie-in books that not only recounted that movie's events, but also covered more information about the film's main characters, such as how [[BigBad Scar]] got his um, scar in the first place and what was his name before he even got that scar. However, some of the events that happened in those books are actually not considered canon with the movies (for example, another ''Lion King''-based book claimed that Simba had a son, but the DirectToVideo sequel had Simba bear a daughter).

* ''Series/{{Smallville}}'': Copious numbers of books have been released, which tend to be MarySue FanFic level quality (meteor freaks more powerful than Clark, a new perfect love interest who seduces Clark and dies tragically, and so on). This is not always the author's fault -- as the TelevisionWithoutPity crew will tell you, the actual series is just as poorly written.

* ''Franchise/StarTrek'' -- A huge range of novels based on all eras of the franchise (and the spaces in between) exists, including novelizations of all Original Series and Animated Series episodes and ''StarTrekNewFrontier''. Other than the novelizations, these are all officially declared ''non''-canon by Creator/{{Paramount}} and Creator/GeneRoddenberry. When Jeri Taylor was the WordOfGod on ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'', her original novels about the crew's history were considered canon. They aren't any more.
