* SpinOff: ''Family Dog'', although picked up by CBS instead of NBC. The series was notably done without the input of Creator/BradBird, who intended the original episode to be a stand-alone outing and didn't feel the concept could support a series. (Given its TroubledProduction and the fact that CBS cancelled it after five of the ten produced episodes aired, he was right.)
