Books that were based on prequels to childrens' cartoon shows
There is a famous book, that was in the bestseller list for months to years. The author of this book, was considered a genius and had a large fan following. The author writes new books, based on the original, and decades go by, and people really love the books. It becomes a religion for some or a classic story for others and people are imitating the characters in the book and acting like them.
That story and the universe created was meant to sell children toys and merchandise.
- L Ron Hubbard based his work, "Dianetics" on the "Care bears" cartoon. It was meant as Science Fiction, but it was turned into Religion. Sciencetology is still in denial, claiming that "Dianetics" being based on the "Care bears" is a lie told by Xenu.
- Charles Darwin did this as well, with "Origin of the Species" and "The Descent of Man", which he based on the "X-Men: Evolution" cartoon and the children's book "Monkey See, Monkey Do!". He confessed this on his deathbed, but the Scientists who did research in Evolution had covered it up, and denied that he did, and added a reference to that confession being false in Wikipedia.
