* {{Averted}} with ''WesternAnimation/BeavisAndButthead'' and ''{{WesternAnimation/Daria}}''. While there were plans to do a crossover, it quickly became apparent that the drastically different tones of the two shows meant there was little audience overlap, and thus not much to gain from doing one. The only hint that ''Daria'' is even a spin-off of the former is in the first episode, when Helen specifically mentions that they moved to Lawndale from the town of Highland, Texas where ''B&B'' is set; even episodes about Daria's childhood obfuscated the connection.

* ''Series/DoctorWho'' occasionally does this in reverse, with Capt. Jack returning and revealing his connection to Series/{{Torchwood}} in the last three episodes of Series 3, and Torchwood and [[Series/TheSarahJaneAdventures Sarah Jane]] getting caught up in the Series 4 finale. The producers have gone on record that the Doctor will ''never'' appear in ''Torchwood'', as that would encourage Who's younger fans to watch a show which...isn't exactly aimed at them.

* ''Series/CriminalMindsSuspectBehavior'' spun-off of ''Series/CriminalMinds'' in a PoorlyDisguisedPilot and went on to share a character: Penelope Garcia was the technical analyst for both teams. There were no other explicit crossovers between the two shows, but there were references. In ''Criminal Minds'', JJ encourages Prentiss to make a move on Mick Rawson from the ''Suspect Behavior'' team (which she decides against), and an episode of ''Suspect Behavior'' features a picture of JJ on Garcia's desk after [[spoiler: she was forced off the team, which serves as the only hint they might still be in contact]].
** When ''Criminal Minds'' got a second spin-off, ''Series/CriminalMindsBeyondBorders,'' they got their own technical analyst, Monty, but Garcia shows up anyway to accuse him of stealing her octopus mug even though he doesn't drink coffee[[note]]though he does enjoy some nice ''tea''[[/note]].
