* ''VideoGame/SuperRoboMouse'' was originally announced for the Wii U eShop before getting cancelled, but then the creator got motivated by playing in an arcade and decided to un-cancel Super Robo Mouse and release it as a multi-platform game.

* CopperCab's videos were almost done for, when his channel got hacked by someone that he had known in real life that got annoyed by his supposed arrogance. However, CopperCab fought for the rights back to his channel and succeeded by only dying his hair and doing a dance/rap video, and uncanceled his videos from that moment on, ever since.

There are rumors that this was staged.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{ReBoot}}'' aired two seasons between 1994-1996 and was canceled by ABC because of the Disney buyout. They even had a sly dig at them in the final episode of the second season by calling the enemy vehicles Armored Binome Carriers (ABC's). "The ABC's, they turned on us!" "Treacherous dogs!" But the show was co-financed by YTV in Canada so they managed a decent {{Syndication}} deal and eventually produced a third season in 1998 that wrapped up the major plots and gave a happy ending to the characters (although left hints towards a new story arc). After being picked up by Cartoon Network and doing well in the ratings, they helped finance a fourth season in 2001 that resolved prior issues and ended on a {{Cliffhanger}} which had to be resolved in comic book form. There are continuing rumors of a revival still. The rumors were confirmed in October 2013 when it was announced that a new series was being developed, although this will be more of a [[AccidentalPun reboot]].

* ''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 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.

Thus far DBZKAI's Buu revival has been Japan only
** ''Anime/DragonBallKai'' received this treatment as well [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff thanks the U.S. market]]. Despite good ratings, the lack of revenue in the merchandise caused it to be cancelled at the end of Cell Saga, meaning the Buu arc would be unfinished. However, the series proved to be so popular on Nicktoons TV and Toonzai that it led to the Buu Saga commissioned for foreign markets a year and a half later.

* ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' Contrary to popular belief it only happened once, when Disney officially canceled it after RPM and Saban brought it back under Saban Brands. Though it had several close calls before.

* ''{{Toonami}}'', Creator/CartoonNetwork's sensational {{anime}} block launched in 1997, hit a speed bump thanks to an aggressive [[FourKidsEntertainment 4Kids]]-imposed ReTool that left it in LighterAndSofter territory- and pigeonholed the fanbase. Eventually, incompetent scheduling and poor variety of shows led to its end late 2008. However, just like with WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy and WesternAnimation/RobotChicken, Creator/AdultSwim struck again! On AprilFoolsDay 2012, they aired a loving joke broadcast of Toonami, suspiciously aimed toward an ulterior motive: test the waters to see if the block was really that cherished. A Twitter feed for viewers was added for viewers to express their interest in a possible return and the fandom proceeded to ''[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome flood the feed]]'' with pleas to revive the block. Rumors the return was a hoax were dispelled when SteveBlum, voice of Toonami host TOM himself, and Creator/KyleHebert, a fellow voice actor with equal stature got involved. One month later, licensing deals were struck, and just like that [[{{Tagline}} Toonami is Back]] [[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch Bitches]].

* ''{{Slayers}}'' lasted 3 seasons in its original run, ending in 1997. A fourth season was planned, but the main cast's other commitments, along with various production issues, kept it from happening...for 11 years. Season 4 finally aired in 2008, with a fifth season arriving the following year.
