Though this is a day late, I felt it my obligation to state this anyhow:

On this date, The Partridge Family television series expired on ABC primetime, at the age of 96. It was perpetually slaughtered in competition with CBS' All in the Family and NBC's Emergency!.

A full week later Saturday Morning intervened and The Partridges were transposed to ink and paint (courtesy of Hanna-Barbera) and sent into the future for Partridge Family 2200 A.D. on CBS.

I thought that was a put-on about the animated series. Mercifully I do not remember that one. (Oy!)

On the topic of shows that had a second life as animated series, I remember when "Planet of the Apes" was cancelled as a prime time live action series, and got a second life via cartoon on a Saturday morning slot.
"Return to the Planet of the Apes".

Found this on DVD a few months back.

Vaguely remember it.

Haven't had time to open and watch it though.... maybe during my upcoming vacation time.
