*** When the show was cancelled, Glen Murakami raised the possibility of it one day being resurrected under the new title ''Titans'', citing the way ''Batman: The Animated Series'' was cancelled before being revived as ''The New Batman Adventures'' a few years later. Unfortunately, this never occurred.

** Had the show been renewed again, there were plans for an additional 13 episode season of ''Justice League Unlimited'', which would have been one large arc featuring the League traveling through time and encountering heroes like Comicbook/EnemyAce and the Atomic Knights. There were also ideas for the hypothetical season to take place in the ''Batman Beyond'' time period featured in "Epilogue". However, nothing ever really evolved beyond the initial idea phase, as the writers were all sure "Destroyer" was going to be the final episode.

** The episode "Showdown" was originally going to show Comicbook/RasAlGhul battling enemies across three time periods, starting with Comicbook/JonahHex during the 1800's, before moving to Comicbook/EnemyAce during WorldWar1, and finally jumping to the present to show him fighting Batman. The creators couldn't find a place to fit in Enemy Ace, so they just settled on the Jonah Hex plot.

* What do ''WesternAnimation/TheProudFamily'', ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'', and ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' have in common? They were all originally pitched to be Nicktoons on Nickelodeon. While there's no word on why Nickelodeon didn't pick ''The Proud Family'', ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'' wasn't picked because Danny Antonnucci (the show creator) was afraid Nickelodeon was going to [[ExecutiveMeddling bombard his show with notes on how to tone down the content and make it more palatable for Nickelodeon's audience]][[note]]Nickelodeon these days isn't as adventurous as Creator/CartoonNetwork is when it comes to airing shows that shock the censors. While there are some in the current line-up that [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar love to get one over on the censors]] like ''Sanjay and Craig'', ''Fairly Oddparents'', and some of the older episodes of ''Spongebob Squarepants'', none of them can reach the bar set by such past shows as ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow'', ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife'', or even ''WesternAnimation/KaBlam!''. In comparison, CartoonNetwork is considered a child- and family-friendly network, but most of their programming outside of AdultSwim have become infamous for delighting young and old alike with its risque content, particularly these days when nearly all of their original programming carries a TV-PG rating[[/note]]. ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' is an interesting case because its pilot was shown on Nickelodeon's ''WhatACartoon Show'' rip-off ''Random Cartoons'' and, despite how popular the short was, the network rejected it twice before Cartoon Network claimed it -- and it couldn't have come at a better time for Cartoon Network, since it was in the midst of its 2004 to 2009 DorkAge, where all of its classic cartoons were sent to Boomerang, its Cartoon Cartoon era was over (ending with ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'''s finale movie and truncated final season), it was airing live-action shows and movies in a desperate and misguided bid to be like Nickelodeon (the infamous CN Real programming and its airing of such movies and syndicated shows as ''Goosebumps'', ''Dumb and Dumber'', ''Hellboy'', and ''The Mask''), and the few cartoons it had (''Chowder'', ''Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack'', ''The Mr. Men Show'', ''Camp Lazlo'', and ''Class of 3000'') weren't favorably received or were getting ScrewedByTheNetwork, and it needed something -- anything -- to WinBackTheCrowd.

** A few specifics: the Huntsclan's plot with the Aztec skulls was originally going to last the entire second season, with the third season dedicated to Chang resurrecting the Dark Dragon. "Homecoming" would have been a two-parter involving Sun Kim being KilledOffForReal and a revelation that Chang was [[IAmYourFather Jake's grandmother]]. However, when it became clear the series would not be renewed, the two seasons were crammed together, and Disney vetoed the above ideas, declaring it too dark (and resulting in WritersCannotDoMath, since they couldn't say Jake's mother was born out of wedlock). Also, Rose was supposed to stay in New York after losing her memories, with Jake attempting to rebuild their relationship, but Disney decided this was "[[ViewersAreMorons too confusing]]", so she was relocated.

* Speaking of David Mitton, in early seasons of ''WesternAnimation/ThomasTheTankEngine'', several other stories adapted from ''Literature/TheRailwaySeries'' such as "The Missing Coach" and "Gordon Goes Foreign" were planned and semi developed, however, the two episodes were binned, the former due to being too dialogue heavy and [[ViewersAreMorons difficult for young children to understand]], whilst the latter was canned due to the requirement of extra one-shot sets. For the latter story, a modified Henry model would have been used to represent The Foreign Engine. Several finalized stories were retooled drastically to befit this (e.g. the original "Tender Engines" would have been a more accurate adaption of "Tenders For Henry" with the Flying Scotsman making a full appearance rather than just his tenders) with the show eventually choosing to focus on original stories featuring the original cast. By the time new props could be afforded, the show had traded hands and separated itself completely from the original novels (to the point where several established plot points were retconned, though the seventeenth season undid several of these).

**''Prometheus and Bob'' was going to get a [[LiveActionAdaptation live-action movie]], but it was scrapped due to a lack of interest. ** Henry and June were to get their own spin-off, ''The Henry and June Show'', and the pilot aired in Spring 1999.

[[folder: Transformers]]''Star Wars'']] * ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsCloneWars'': Shaak Ti was going to be killed off in the finale, but her death was moved to ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'' and it was later [[DeletedScene deleted from the final cut]]. She was eventually killed off in the now non-canon ''StarWarsTheForceUnleashed'' video game. * ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' had a lot of ideas that were discarded: ** The original premise had Anakin and Obi-Wan in recurring roles, while the main characters would be a Twi’lek Jedi named Sendak (named after Maurice Sendak) and his Togruta padawan Ashla (later becoming Ahsoka), who would team up with a smuggler pilot named Cad (later becoming Cad Bane), his mistress Lupe and their Gungan strongman Lunker. This premise would be [[RefittedForSequel reused]] for its sequel series ''StarWarsRebels'', though the characters would be changed: Sendak became human Jedi Knight Kanan Jarrus, Ashla became Kanan's male padawan Ezra Bridger, Cad became female Twi'lek smuggler pilot Hera Syndulla, Lupe became Mandalorian Sabine Wren and Lunker became Lasat strongman Zeb Orrelios. ** Another premise was to have the series taking place in a recurring location and to keep landscapes to a minimum, which bore similarities to ''Series/{{Firefly}}''. ** Ahsoka was going have to have an Icelandic accent and was originally Obi-Wan's padawan, but it was discarded which resulted Ahsoka to become Anakin's padawan instead. ** ARC trooper Alpha-17 was going to be a character in the show until George Lucas nixed the idea because it would mean having too many names beginning with A. As a result, we got Rex, who's [[{{Expy}} similar to Alpha]], but with a different name. ** Plo Koon was originally going to speak only in his Kel Dor language, but it posed problems for him communicating with his fellow troopers, so they decided to have him speak in Basic (the English language of Star Wars). ** Mace Windu and Boba Fett's talk in the end of "Lethal Trackdown" was going to be longer, but had to be cut for time, hence why it feels incredibly rushed. ** Darth Bane and [[KnightsOfTheOldRepublic Revan]] were to appear in "Ghosts of Mortis", even getting all the way to modeling, but were cut because them appearing as force ghosts seemed counterintuitive to the now established means for how a force user can appear as one. *** In season 6's episode, "Sacrifice", Darth Bane and a great many other unnamed Sith Lords do show up as Force Ghosts to taunt Yoda. Even considering the nature of Revan and his alignment to the force, it is possible that Revan was there too. ** Originally, at the end of "Carnage of Krell", Captain Rex was originally going to be the one to kill the traitorous [[spoiler: General Pong Krell]], but ultimately, they decided it didn't fit Rex, so they ultimately had [[spoiler: Dogma]] be the one to pull the trigger. ** For a short while the season five finale was intended to end with [[spoiler: Ahsoka just going back to the order as if nothing happened]] but the majority of the writers felt it would be a good time to break away. ** Filoni revealed quite a few of these during the 2013 Star Wars Celebration Europe 2: *** During the run of the series, he tried multiple times to have Ahsoka [[HorseOfADifferentColor ride on the back of a]] wolf. *** There was story-line planned that would've tied the series into the events of Film/RevengeOfTheSith. However it was rejected by Lucas, before the cancellation. *** There would've been a Yoda-Wookies-arc, had the series not been canceled. ** Creator/AshleyEckstein originally auditioned for the role of Padmé, but they found she sounded "too young" for her. However they also found her perfect for Ahsoka. ** The series ending Yoda-arc was supposed to include the Priestesses talking about the Father to Yoda, but it didn't make it past the first scripts. ** [[http://starwarsblog.starwars.com/2014/03/10/to-fans-of-star-wars-the-clone-wars-thank-you/ A blog post]] by Dave Filoni revealed several things that were planned for the future of the show, such as: *** A new Quinlan Vos story, including a duel with Darth Maul (though apparently that was supposed to be in ''Son of Dathomir'' but was cut). *** The return of Lee-Char. *** Another Ahsoka/Bo-Katan team-up. *** Boba Fett, Cad Bane, Bossk, Embo, and more in a new bounty hunter arc. *** The return of a NotQuiteDead Echo. ** Writer Brent Friedman also revealed a number of interesting factoids about the planned future episodes for the show [[http://makingstarwars.net/2014/05/brent-friedman-writer-clone-wars-talks-season-7-8/ on his Twitter]]. *** An arc about a group of soldiers known as "The Bad Batch", which would feature the return of Echo. *** Multiple Bounty Hunter arcs were in development. *** Captain Rex had a story arc that would involve him being injured, which also would have focused on he and R2-D2 working with a reprogrammed Super Battle Droid, which would be destroyed by the end of the arc and its death would effect Rex. *** Another Yoda-centered arc was planned. *** A major arc would center around Anakin dealing with Ahsoka's absence. ** On the bright side, the ''Son Of Dathomir'' comic series and the forthcoming novel ''Dark Disciple'' are signs that the untold tales of ''The Clone Wars'' will make it into circulation one way or another. The above events discussed for unproduced episodes will likely be canonized. ** Celebration Anaheim revealed many, many things such as: *** The Yoda-Wookie arc would have taken place after the Bad Batch arc and Yoda and the Bad Batch would work with Wookies to fend off Separatists and Trandosians. There would've been much more mysticism involved including Wookies summoning tree gods to help them fight the invaders and a conflict bewteen the Bad Batch and the Wookies. Also the mantis-esque enemies from Knights of the Old Republic would have appeared. *** An arc about the Pykes, with possibly Ahsoka as the main character. *** An Arc about Ahsoka living after the Wrong Jedi Arc, including her getting swindled by a crooked salesman who sells her a broken used speeder. Filoni also hinted that Barriss Offee may have returned in this arc. *** Barriss was originally going to commit suicide after she confessed to her crimes via blowing herself up, but Filoni spared her so he could use her later. *** A 'Top Gun' arc with Rex and R2 *** A Mandalore vs Separatists arc. **** That would've been in ''[[ComicBook/DarthMaulSonOfDathomir Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir]]''. *** An arc that would've been an 'X Files' arc, something creepy and disturbing and it was possibly a Yuuzhan Vong as well *** Another giant crystal arc. *** Kyle Newman voicing a Toong. *** An Eight part Vos/Ventress arc that was turned into the Dark Disciple novel. It would've had Vos act a lot like his comic book persona. * ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels'': Agent Kallus's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7zstnZrz_3M reveal trailer]] shows that at one point in development he was going to be a Chiss ([[Literature/TheThrawnTrilogy Thrawn's]] species).

** An episode called "Thirtysimpsons" was written for season 3, but never produced. It would have been a crossover with {{Thirtysomething}}.

The script was written by George Meyer, but the episode was never produced due to fear of the Church of Scientology suing, as well as potentially offending cast members such as Nancy Cartwright (though that didn't stop Creator/TreyParkerAndMattStone from doing a similar episode for ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'', which not only got them in trouble with Scientology[[note]]or rather, Creator/TomCruise[[/note]], but also led to Isaac Hayes leaving the show). A rejected season 7 episode involved the topic of racism and was called "Homer vs. Dr. Hibbert on the Issue of Race", but it was deemed to be too potentially controversial and heavy-handed in exploring the subject. "Homer's Phobia" was also going to be called "Lisa Goes to Camp," where Lisa gets into kitsch culture, and Bart does the same thing, only for Homer to worry that Bart will end up gay.
