Police Academy, but that's about it. From the third movie onward, they were definitely more or less kids' movies (with an occasional risque' joke for the grown-ups watching) and that's when the animated series, action figure line, and (later) the live-action television series happened. For like a year around 1989/1990-ish, Police Academy was a modest hit with the kids. Not huge, but it got a little buzz. So arguably its biggest "success" as a brand came after it morphed into a kids-friendly property, even though that also marked the point the franchise officially jumped the shark and then fizzled out shortly thereafter.

I'm hard-pressed to think of too many other examples, though.
