    The first series that came to my mind was that Beetlejuice cartoon from the early 90s.

    And I remember Police Academy: The Series. The Zed in the cartoon neither looked nor sounded anything like Bobcat Golthwait, but as I would learn later on, the producers most likely didn't want the cartoon characters to resemble their live action counterparts too closely so that they wouldn't have to pay the movie actors royalties.
    Oh yes, I remember Police Academy: The Series- Ruby-Spears produced it for Warner Bros. Television, back in 1988. I also remember Robocop- there were also live-action TV series spinoffs to both shows, too. Let's also remember, the Ruby-Spears' Police Academy series used primarily Canadian voice-over talent with the exception of Howard Morris.
    Like it or not, I never apologize for being a fan of whomever they may be.

    I loved how there were so many cartoons based on R-rated properties.

    The OP never stated he was unaware of the existence of these types of shows. He was wondering if it was still a common practice in recent times. Shows that are 20+ years old aren't exactly current.

    Tron Uprising is the only current one I can think of. They definitely dwindled in numbers once creator driven shows came back.

    Beetlejuice was the best film-based cartoon I've ever seen. I remember seeing it on Nick when it was great.

    I think that Tron: Uprising is the most recent cartoon series to be based off of a live action film. I think it was more common place in the 80s and 90s than it is now. There are more animated movies to make an easier transition from movie into TV series and there might be more complaints from parents if PG-13 or more likely R-rated films had cartoon series aimed at kids than when they were more common place.

    Disney, unfortunately, wasted a golden opportunity with Tron: Uprising- 2 years ago, I spoke about what things would be like if Disney Channel slotted Tron: Uprising opposite Cartoon Network's highly rated Star Wars: The Clone Wars, in order to bring back to Saturday mornings what's been missing, TV program competition for viewers. At the same time, it would've helped Disney Channel to succeed the late ABC Kids as a major animation programmer on Saturday mornings. BTW, for all of those animated programs, based on live-action PG-13 or R-rated films, there was a good reason to tone them down- to make those programs viewer friendly, while in compliance with the syndicators/network's Standards & Practices policies. It's a real shame that people didn't realize that.
