** The Comicbook/NewGods infant ''did'' eventually receive a proper finale, in the form of the OGN "The Hunger Dogs", written and drawn by Jack Kirby himself! It's not very well known, however (even amongst many of DC's writers) due to being released shortly before and overshadowed by [[Comicbook/TheDarkKnightReturns a certain other famous comic book...]]

* The uncut, uncensored English dub and Western DVD releases of ''Anime/YuGiOh''. They were very well-received by older anime fans at the time, but were heavily overshadowed by the success of the standard, kid-oriented CutAndPasteTranslation with preteen audiences, and the dub/release only lasted a few episodes.

* ''Fridays'', an early 1980s sketch show that, at the time, was prepped to be ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'''s replacement as the latter show's quality was in the toilet with its notoriously awful sixth season. Sadly, ABC fell out of love with the show as quickly as they fell in love with it. It was canceled after the network tried to air the show on primetime after moving it from 11:30pm to midnight.

* Not so much a show, but rather a channel itself devoted to cancelled shows. The Dutch channel Veronica pretty much runs on this stuff. The average plot: 1.) Show is announced with a lot of fanfare. The same teaser is shown over and over again. 2.) Show airs, some people get hooked. 3.) Show disappears without a warning. 4.) People check out the series online and learn that it only ran for a couple of episodes before getting cancelled. This goes for most sci-fi/action dramas listed above. There is a clue though, every time they first announce the show with the teasers, the show will be referred to as 'The hit series <insert showname>'. Latest victim: ''FlashForward''.

* ''VideoGame/AdventRising'', featuring a story written by science fiction god Orson Scott Card. The game was planned from the get-go to be a trilogy, but like ''Psychonauts'', was pushed out the door too quickly by Majesco (who was facing bankruptcy at the time). The result was a unpolished and glitchy (albeit still playable) game. When given just a month to polish it for the rerelease of the game on PC, the average ratings jumped a considerable amount. The game ended on the definition of a cliffhanger, and the original team (who have long since left Majesco, and were recently bought by Epic) has expressed interest in finishing the trilogy, but Majesco won't release the rights to them. They're too busy with ''Cooking Mama'' I guess...
** And who could forget the terrible marketing ploy they used to sell copies of their unfinished game. The main selling point of the game was an in-game contest where players had to find a symbol in one of the levels. Whoever found the symbol first and submitted undeniable proof to the developers would win a large sum of money. Cue a crafty player finding the symbol, sending the proof, then having the developers back out.
* Working Designs. They were mostly known for their excellent localizations of the VideoGame/{{Lunar}} series.

Adding the fact that the head writer for the series is now working for Naughty Dog and the voice of the series' BigBad is dead, and you can tell they're not going to put out another game any time soon.

* In 1995, Creator/{{Capcom}} (yes, the same Capcom that makes Franchise/MegaMan and Franchise/StreetFighter games) decided to enter the pinball business. During that time, they produced what pinball fans consider to be some of the greatest pinball machines ever made and never produced anything short of a critical darling. In addition, their usage of non-proprietary parts made repair easier and less costly than the Williams, Bally, and Gottlieb machines of its time. The problems were that Capcom never figured out how to market its pinball quite as well as the other companies, nor could they produce large numbers of any of them. As a result of few people knowing these machines existed and very low production numbers (most were in the single digits) Capcom left the pinball business in 1997. Every machine Capcom made is now highly sought after, and chances to play them are incredibly rare.

* ''VideoGame/DinoCrisis'' promised an interesting [[JustForFun/XMeetsY premise]], and while not as popular as its sister franchise ''ResidentEvil'' or its inspiration ''JurassicPark'', it won over enough fans largely by emulating the SurvivalHorror aspects of the one and exploiting [[EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs the dino appeal]] of the other. ''Dino Crisis 2'' took the series in a new direction, which made it something of a ContestedSequel, but ''Dino Crisis 3'' turned out to be a FranchiseKiller, much to the dismay of fans of the previous titles. No sequels have ever been announced since then.

* ''Series/{{Stromberg}}'', a German comedy show extremely similar to ''TheOffice'', got recommissioned for several series, even though it was never a success. Still, they've got a large cult-fanbase.

* ''Series/TheTick'': Not only did the cult-favorite [[WesternAnimation/TheTick animated series]] last only three seasons, but its live-action counterpart sadly ended with only one season (and two episodes never even aired).
