* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'' sees a temporarily brainless Patrick say "M-O-O-N, that spells moon!" This was more or less the catchphrase of Tom Cullen in Literature/TheStand, and just [[Creator/BillFagerbakke who]] do you suppose played Tom in the 1994 miniseries adaptation of the book?

* In the ''WesternAnimation/AladdinTheSeries'' episode "When Chaos Comes Calling" Iago is given a human head, which closely resembles his voice actor Gilbert Gottfried. It could also be an allusion to animator Will Finn's process into designing the character; Finn caricatured him, then gave him a parrot's body. Also related to InkSuitActor.
* In ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'', Bullock (played by Patrick Stewart) shows off a device he calls the "Hologram Deck." When Dick and Stan point out the resemblance to the holodeck from Star Trek, Bullock claims not to know what that is.

** Grant Walker, voiced by Daniel O'Herlihy, has decided that things are too rough and has decided to replace an old society with a new city, and is willing to take drastic steps to take out the old one.

** Also, in the episode [[Series/TheGreatestAmericanHero "Believe It Or Not, Joe's Walking On Air"]], Peter notes the similarity between the voices of Dr. Hartman and Carter Pewtersmidt -- both played by Seth [=MacFarlane=] -- who do indeed sound nearly identical. Hartman and Carter then converse about this, with Carter noting it as being a bit lazy, whereas Hartman figures that there are only so many voices out there, with some bound to sound similar.

** In the second ''Star Wars'' spoof, Peter short-circuits the argument by bringing up ''Without a Paddle'', which causes Chris to scream and run out of the room angrily. ''Without a Paddle'' was a horrible box office flop that starred Seth Green.

** ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueAction'' took the concept of actor allusion to its ultimate limit in the short "Missing the Mark" when the Joker (most famously voiced by Mark Hamill) and the Trickster (played by Mark Hamill in ''Series/TheFlash1990'' and as two different version of the character in ''Series/TheFlash2014'', and here voiced by Mark Hamill) abduct famous actor Mark Hamill (voiced by himself), who helps in his own rescue by fooling the Joker and Trickster by imitating their voices, allowing his rescue by Swamp Thing...who in ''Justice League Action'' is voiced by Mark Hamill.
