Biggest Cash Cows of All TimeCartoonfan202 This is going to be one of my last two lists before I go on a hiatus from making lists.
The Top Ten
It's the anime that most kids are familiar with, and it has exploded into decades of video games, trading cards, and an anime lasting over 700 episodes. I hope Nintendo is enjoying raking in the dough that this franchise made for them, as well as their other stuff, such as Mario, Zelda, etc. Those are also big cash cows, and they will be added to the list as well. - Cartoonfan202
Yep, they do everything to meet their user's quality standards. That's why they are one of the best franchises in the world. - Neonco31
Makes sense though.
Want Proof that they are Cash Cows they sold a Pencil for $100 and people still bought it - christangrant
It's literally everywhere. You can't escape from it. It has everything: toys, books, clothes, jewelry, coloring books, makeup, fruit snacks, and who knows what else. I used to get annoyed whenever I saw a Frozen related item in the store, but now whenever I go to the store, I just accept that a Frozen related item is obviously going to be there and that there is no escaping from this franchise. No wonder it's the highest grossing animated film ever. - Cartoonfan202
I'm sorry, this has to be the most milked to death one on this list. - mattstat716
Why is Frozen above? No one pays attention to Frozen compared to Minions. They even made a 2 hour long commercial and put it on theaters. At least Frozen isn't a bad movie, but this movie is terrible. Call of duty eh, Apple makes devices, and obviously electronic devices are expensive. And Pokemon is well-known and it's addicting, so Nintendo and Game Freak have to satisfy their users - Ohno
Basically Merchandise the Movie - cjWriter1997
I know, right? It's the Frozen of Illumination. - Cartoonfan202
Even worse than Frozen
This is probably Hasbro's most famous board game. It has many variants, electronic versions, and even a promotion at McDonald's at one point. It's also sold in 101 countries. - Cartoonfan202
JK Rowling has already moved on to other things, but this franchise isn't going anywhere. The books are always New York Times bestsellers, the author has become a billionaire due to the series, it has several successful movies, and we also have Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them. - Cartoonfan202
That one character that is milked to death! (even though he is my favorite Dc Character.) Basically the Meryl Streep of Dc! If you know what I'm saying!
Batman is a major cash cow along with with Superman, Spiderman, etc. Batman has raked in the dough for DC by having countless toys, video games, comics, video games, T.V. shows, and who knows how many films. This franchise may never die and probably won't for the next decade. - Cartoonfan202
Garfield is probably a bigger cash cow than Peanuts. Garfield has comic strips, tons of merchandise, a movie, and several animated T.V. shows and specials. - Cartoonfan202
Before Shrek, Dreamworks was known for making movies that almost no one remembers and were only made to capitalize on the success of it's competitor, Disney. However, everything changed with Shrek. It received critical acclaim and even won the first Academy Award for Best Animated Feature. Ever since then, Dreamworks has been more popular and the Shrek franchise is extremely popular, with tons of sequels, a spinoff, food chain promotions, and is one of the most revered internet memes ever. - Cartoonfan202
This is only 32? - DCfnaf
"The BBC has Doctor Who over in its home country, the UK, as well. Let's see... an original Long Runner series (including a T.V. Movie) with an equally massive Doctor Who Expanded Universe and two non-canon movies. And since the 2005 revival with the new series, the Expanded Universe expanded even more (with material for both the classic and new series), bringing along two successful spin-off series of their own ( Torchwood and The Sarah Jane Adventures). And the merchandising, of course."-T.V. Tropes - Cartoonfan202
Similar to Frozen, you can't escape from Shopkins. Every time I go into the store, there are Shopkins everything: from clothes to books to makeup to accessories to home, decor, and party, and of course, legions and legions of toys and sporting goods. The list goes on. There's also a web series that was made available on Netflix for streaming, and a direct-to-dvd movie. However, I'm somehow not annoyed by seeing Shopkins merchandise in the store all the time, because I'm okay with Shopkins. However, that is NOT the case with the extremely overrated cashgrab known as Paw Patrol. - Cartoonfan202
