5. Pee-Wee's Playhouse

The King of Cartoons, originally played by Gilbert Lewis...

Replaced By...

William H. Marshall.  Lewis left after the first season due to the show's production moving from New York to Los Angeles. Or maybe he simply abdicated his crown.

Aunt Viv, originally played by Janet Hubert...

Replaced By...

Daphne Maxwell Reid. Hubert and Will Smith did not get along, which likely led to her being replaced after the third season.

Darrin, originally played by Dick York...

Replaced By...

Dick Sargent. Sargent was actually originally offered the role but had to turn it down due to a commitment to another series. But after health problems forced York to quit after season five, Sargent was brought back. Although they could have just explained the whole thing was due to a witch spell.

8. Roseanne

Becky, originally played by Lecy Goranson...

Replaced By...

Sarah Chalke. Goranson left during the fifth season to attend Vassar but wound up returning several times during season eight.
