Interesting how the most successful spin-offs were a product of one very successful TV show.

Mine would be Meg Griffin from Family Guy. Meg moves out west to California to attend college and meets her grade school sweetheart. She would have adventures with her new boyfriend and his sister as well as other students while enjoying the California lifestyle.
Another would be Hayley Smith from American Dad. She would go off to College while trying to reconnect her hippie beliefs. She would have new roommates and teachers.

I wonder why there weren't college-set spinoffs for Mary Stone ("Donna Reed") or Betty Anderson ("Father Knows Best"). Two very attractive ladies with strong teen followings that ended up having lengthy careers. It just seems the obvious thing to do.
