4) M*A*S*H

The film was released in 1970 and the TV show didn’t come out until 1973. The famous theme song was written by the director’s son for the film, a tune that made millions (as opposed to the film, which did not).

3) Dirty Dancing

The classic 1987 film set in the ’60s was made into a TV show only a year after the hit first debuted in theaters. The TV remake starred Patrick Cassidy and Melora Hardin.
