* On ''WesternAnimation/MarvelsSpiderMan'' , Gwen Stacy's debut may have people surprised at what a [[AcademicAlphaBitch stuck-up, less-than-kind attitude]] she has. However, this is actually Gwen's attitude when she originally debuted in the comics, and [[CharacterizationMarchesOn the characterization changed and was subsequently forgotten about over the years.]]

* WesternAnimation/WoodyWoodpecker's first appearance was actually as the villain of a short of a now forgotten character called "WesternAnimation/AndyPanda". Oh, and his laugh (produced by Creator/MelBlanc) didnt start with him either. Blanc used it earlier in a few of his Warner Bros. shorts like ''Porky's Hare Hunt''.

** Similar to Zoidberg from ''Futurama'' above is the famous bit from "Last Exit to Springfield" of Homer spinning around on the floor going "WOOP WOOP WOOP WOOP!", which was originally used by Curly, but is now more commonly associated with ''The Simpsons''.

* Now and then someone will accuse ''ThundarrTheBarbarian'' of being a ripoff of ''WesternAnimation/HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse1983'', despite the fact that ''Thundarr'' predates ''He-Man'' by several years.

* Regardless of what the show's fans would like to believe, the Misfits were [[NamesTheSame originally]] a horror-themed punk band from New Jersey formed in 1977, NOT an original creation as a fictonal band in ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}''. The band was obscure at the time and had split up 2 years prior to the cartoon's creation so it was unlikely anyone involved knew of them at the time, but when the band themselves tried to prevent Hasbro from using the name, Hasbro chose to go ahead regardless due to "legal loopholes" involving trademarks. Then former frontman Glenn Danzig gave his approval when he learned of it, no doubt due to his anger with the rest of the band at the time. While the band themselves have not taken any legal action to this day, Jerry Only and the rest of the band refuse to publicly acknowledge the cartoon even exists and will not answer questions concerning their thoughts on it (perhaps to avoid giving the series any attention at all). ''Jem'' fans likewise tend to get angry when it's mentioned, believing the band has no right to complain(and yes, we shall point out the irony in anger over copied names, what with Jem having been the name of a character in Harper Lee's ''To Kill A Mockingbird'' some 20 years prior).

* Most Disney fans assume that WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse is Walt Disney's first cartoon character, and Peg-Leg Pete was created to be his primary enemy. Actually, Pete was the ''very first recurring Disney character'', created in 1925 (before even ''WesternAnimation/OswaldTheLuckyRabbit'') for one of Disney's AliceComedies, a series of shorts which mixed live action and animation. Pete was always a villain, but the fact is that he was imported into the earliest Mickey cartoons to [[RoguesGalleryTransplant give Mickey an established character to fight]], not the other way around.
** For that matter, most people don't know that Mickey was an {{Expy}} of Oswald...but even fewer know that Oswald himself was an Expy of Julius the Cat from the Disney's ''AliceComedies'', who was himself a CaptainErsatz of WesternAnimation/FelixTheCat.

* Here's one: ThePollyanna type in a place that is quite clearly {{Hell}}, run by a creature that is quite clearly {{Satan}}, who acts as a CorruptCorporateExecutive. No, not ''WesternAnimation/JimmyTwoShoes'', but an earlier show called ''TheBaskervilles''.
