* Apart from [[Disney/LiloAndStitch the obvious]], ''WesternAnimation/LiloAndStitchTheSeries'' had two bookends - ''WesternAnimation/StitchTheMovie'' (so named because marketing couldn't agree on what to call the series until it was too late), and ''WesternAnimation/LeroyAndStitch''

* ''[[WesternAnimation/GIJoeTheMovie G.I. Joe: The Movie]]'' was supposed to get a theatrical release, but due to the box-office failures of the ''Transformers'' and ''MyLittlePony'' movies, it ended up being a straight-to-video release instead. The Movie was suppose to kill off Duke in order to set the tone apart from the first two seasons of TV series (where the NobodyCanDie rule was played straight). But due to the fan backlash of Optimus Prime's death in ''WesternAnimation/TransformersTheMovie'' (which was actually inspired by the decision to kill off Duke), Duke's death was quickly revised thanks to some last-minute dubbing (he ended up "falling into a coma" and recovering off-screen).

* ''WesternAnimation/PenguinsOfMadagascar'': Is an unusual example, as even though it is not canon with the television series ''WesternAnimation/ThePenguinsOfMadagascar'', it still draws more inspiration from that than it does the film series.
