There have been comments about how M*A*S*H became a different show from how it started. It started as a comedy with some drama, and morphed into a drama with some comedy. This led me to wonder what other shows have had a significant direction change over the course of their run. One that comes to mind is the stop-motion-animation series Moral Orel. It started out as a pretty repetitive series, with each episode involving Orel learning a biblical lesson and taking it in a completely wrong direction, often causing havoc around town. However, towards the end of the Second Season the series took a radical change in direction, with the Third Season focusing on the other people in town and becoming very dark and disturbing. One episode, "Alone", was so disturbing that it led to the series' cancellation.
