Dragnet (1987)
Not the original pair, but the nephew of the original and his new partner. I like this take on the idea. Not really a remake, but more a sequel. It's a good way to go about the remake idea.

Most Zorro stories these days start with an heir taking over the Zorro name, but this did it in an intriguing way by making the "heir" not only someone unrelated to the original, but also rather a clutz at first.

Robin Hood (1973)
The traditional Robin Hood tale, but portrayed by animals.

An interesting side-note here. For a bit of time in the medieval ages, there were a set of animal stories that were extremely popular among the common folk, and the main character was a fox. So this movie is almost a blending of the two ideas, in a way.

The language was Shakespeare, but the setting was pure modern-day. Baz Luhrmann did an excellent job translating the Shakespearean English in a way that even modern-day teenagers could take interest in.

Hamlet as told from the POV from Rosencratz and Guildenstern. An incredible and hilarious take on what happens to characters of a play when they're not "onstage."
