* ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'' first came out in 1999, and it was meant to [[GrandFinale end with the movie]], which was released in 2004. However, when Nick saw that the movie did so well in theatres, they tried to talk Stephen Hillenburg into reviving the show, but Stephen refused to, so they hired Paul Tibbitt to make the new episodes and the show was uncanceled, and still airs to this day. As is often the case, many fans have agreed the show has [[SeasonalRot definitely gone downhill]] since then and has lost the amount of popularity it once had.

* After three seasons, Creator/{{Nickelodeon}} abruptly canceled ''WesternAnimation/{{Doug}}'' in 1994 due to contractual issues, despite having originally ordered [[SixtyFiveEpisodeCartoon sixty-five episodes]]. Creators Jim Jinkins and Joe Aaron were furious at their actions and refused to work with them ever again. Soon after, Jinkins and Aaron were approached by Creator/{{Disney}}, who had then just purchased Creator/{{ABC}}, and that gave the series another chance, running for two seasons before it was canceled again when [[HistoryRepeats said network got into a similar contractual dispute]].

* ''Otokozaka'' ("A Man's Hill"), a martial arts manga by Creator/MasamiKurumada published from 1984 to 1985, was canceled after only six months in serialization, ending with an infamous cliffhanger of the main character running down a brick road and the kanji ''mikan'' (未完, "Not The End") displayed. It resumed serialization on ''Weekly Playboy'' (no relation to the American ''PlayBoy'' magazine) in 2014.

* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' is most likely the TropeCodifier, as uncancellations have become more common since then. Brought back by {{FOX}} after a long hiatus once DVD sales took off and reruns on Creator/AdultSwim brought in better ratings than what it had on FOX, who realized exactly how much money they stood to make off the most popular cartoon since ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark''. What's especially notable here is how in the returning series premiere, Peter recited [[TheLongList an excruciatingly long list]] of FOX shows that ''Family Guy'' was canceled to make room for but were themselves inevitably, if not always abruptly and swiftly, canned (see the page quote for all the shows that tried and failed at replacing ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''). Ironically, since its uncancellation, FOX has absolutely ''refused'' to cancel it again, despite fans saying [[SeasonalRot the show has suffered greatly from lackluster writing and too much reliance conventions such as cut-away gags, cultural references, and throw-away jokes]] in the following years; even Creator/SethMacFarlane himself has said he ''wants Family Guy'' to end already, but FOX won't let him.

* ''[[VideoGame/DragonQuest Dragon Warrior]]'' went on a very extended hiatus in North America after ''[[VideoGame/DragonQuestIV Dragon Warrior IV]]'' was released in 1992. [[Creator/SquareEnix Enix]] apparently had intentions to localize one of the next two games on the SNES, but these efforts died when they closed their American branch in the mid 1990s. The series was resurrected eight years later when Enix brought over a GameboyColor compilation of the first two ''VideoGame/DragonQuest'' games, but the release of ''VideoGame/DragonQuestVII'' the year after really cemented the uncancellation of the series in America. Then plans for bringing the ''VideoGame/DragonQuestIV'' remake to the U.S. were scrapped when the original development studio shut down. It took seven years and the Square-Enix merger before the U.S. finally saw the [=PS1=] version's bonus content on the DS.
