is in canon with the rest of the series. The back of the DVD case claims that "unlike most other movies that got their start on the silver screen, [this one] doesn't suck." ( South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut Stephen Sondheim is known to have sent the shows creators a letter congratulating them on the film's musical score and calling it the best musical he'd seen in over a decade.)
To be specific, the reference is in the form of a two part episode, resolving the question of what happens to the relationship between Saddam Hussein and Satan. Satan has started to date another guy, but by the end, he decides to stay single. There is also mention of the US-Canada war and Terrance & Phillip's near execution in "Terrance & Phillip: Behind the Blow."
Three-part Emmy winning story arc South Park: Imaginationland has been edited into a full length film. (Indeed, it was originally intended to be a second film before being split into episodes instead.)
In an episode of , in which the title characters adore a punk rock band called " The Weekenders Chum Bucket", Tino mourns that he must spend time with his geeky cousin and cannot go on opening day with the rest of the gang to see " Chum Bucket: The Movie". Lampshaded even further when he's talking to them on the phone and hears them in an arcade playing " Chum Bucket: The Movie: The Game."
had Batman: The Animated Series in theaters in 1993.
Batman: Mask of the Phantasm was conceived as a movie, titled Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths Justice League: Worlds Collide, that would form a bridge between and Justice League . The project ended up being put on hold and was finally released long after Justice League Unlimited Unlimited had ended, with an entirely different art style and no continuity ties. There are however little traces of the continuity links from the earlier drafts, such as the League only having six members (Hawkgirl quit the team in the series finale of Justice League) and the members of the League debating whether or not they should expand their roster.
was released in 1986. It took place between two seasons of the animated series and skipped the plot forward by 20 years, to the Transformers: The Movie far future date of 2005.
Spoofed in with "Itchy & Scratchy: The Movie". In the fullness of time, The Simpsons came to be, reversed some of the worst horrors of The Simpsons Movie Flanderization and inflicted Spider-Pig upon the world. And of course, sparked much debate on whether it sucked or ruled.
Also Lampshaded when Homer criticizes the audience for paying money to watch something they could get for free on TV, as quoted on the main page.
Another in-universe example: "Angry Dad: The Movie".
The was meant to serve as a Sponge Bob Square Pants Movie Grand Finale to the series. However, those meddling guys at Nickelodeon decided to continue with the series anyway.
has two movies. First it's Kim Possible A Sitch in Time where they discovered that The Dragon Shego became a Evil Overlord in a Bad Future. The second movie is about the Harmless Villain Dr. Drakken becoming a Not-So-Harmless Villain, and being created as a Grand Finale (until it was Uncanceled) it ended with a kiss.
Teen Titans: Trouble in Tokyo , which, as you can tell from the page quote, was the Ed, Edd n Eddy's Big Picture Show Grand Finale and had the eponymous trio finally become respected by the other kids.
has several The Fairly Oddparents TV Specials, like Abra-Catastrophe, Channel Chasers, School's Out! , The Musical Fairly OddBaby (where Poof made his first appearance), the , and others, but it has actually only one movie, the live-action film Wishology Trilogy Grow Up, Timmy Turner! that takes place 13 years in the future.
After spending time in Development Hell, the movie, which is to be the Samurai Jack Grand Finale of the series, will finally see the light of day.
Inverted with . It has nothing to do with the much more classic 60s specials, yet the sequel is more or less a sequel to those specials.
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Movie The Man Called Flintstone, the 1966 film version of animated series.
The Flintstones Disney's and Recess and Nickelodeon's Teacher's Pet had the full-length theatrical treatment.
Hey Arnold!! , an The Powerpuff Girls Movie Origins Episode for the series. Its working titles were First Flight and "Maiden Voyage.''
According to Word of God, Butch Hartman wouldn't have any trouble giving this treatment to (the four 1 hour specials don't really count). However, due to the Danny Phantom Executive Meddling that ended the series while it was still in its prime, it is unknown at the moment if they will green light the project.
was supposed to get a theatrical release, but due to the box-office failures of the G.I. Joe: The Movie Transformers and 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 My Little Pony Nobody Can Die rule was played straight). But due to the fan backlash of Optimus Prime's death in (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).
Transformers: The Movie : Tiny Toon Adventures .
How I Spent My Vacation had two: Daria Is it Fall Yet?, which bridged the fourth and fifth seasons, and Is It College Yet?, which was the Grand Finale of Daria's class graduating high school and getting ready for college.

Ben 10: Destroy All Aliens Apart from the obvious, had two bookends - Lilo & Stitch: The Series (so named because marketing couldn't agree on what to call the series until it was too late), and Stitch! The Movie
Leroy & Stitch had four Futurama Direct-to-Video Movies, the first one being Bender's Big Score, revolving around Planet Express being bought out by evil nudist alien scammers.
, The Movie of Beavis and Butt-Head Do America . Beavis and Butthead get their TV stolen, try to find a new one, and end up going on a quest that takes them all across the USA.
Beavis and Butt-Head has three movies - a made for TV movie explaining the origins of Donnie, as well as a theatrical release. The second theatrically released movie was a The Wild Thornberrys crossover with . One thing that's interesting to note is that unlike most examples of these, the first two movies are considered to be within the show's canon - and the later seasons of Rugrats had multiple call backs to the movie.
The Wild Thornberrys has My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic .
My Little Pony Equestria Girls is arguably the series of the movie, the pilot having limited theatrical release as a full length animated movie.
