* ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' assembled the entire (and then-living) cast of ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' for an episode and spent 23 minutes lovingly mocking the show. Most of ''Futurama'''s writers are huge ''Franchise/StarTrek'' fans, though series creator Matt Groening insists he's never seen an episode.
** Except for Creator/JamesDoohan, who was replaced with Welshy. [[spoiler: Briefly]].

* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' contains a wonderful parody of ProfessionalWrestling in the episode "The Blind Bandit." "[[ThirdPersonPerson The Boulder]] has conflicted feelings about fighting a [[CuteBruiser young]], [[BlindSeer blind]] [[ExtraordinarilyEmpoweredGirl girl]]!"
** The Boulder was actually voiced by former WWF wrestler Mick Foley, as well as being a visual parody of [[Wrestling/DwayneJohnson Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson]].
** Not to mention "The Ember Island Players". How can you not love a show that ''[[TakeThatUs parodies itself?]]''

** A meta-example: the 20+ minute animation "Trey Gets Stoned" is one of both the show itself (seriously, the animation is indistinguishable) and TreyParkerAndMattStone. Not surprising, since it was made by several fans.

* ''WesternAnimation/ReBoot'' had nearly every episode that had at least one affectionate parody. One of the ways they can do this is the nature of the Games, where it transforms an area of Mainframe and comes with its own built-in story. But one interesting thing they did was that each parody flowed with the theme of the episode or was merely a fun backdrop to the main story. It is most notable in the third season, where ''every'' episode owes something to some franchise or genre. Just in the first half: ''Franchise/EvilDead'', ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'', ''Film/JamesBond'', ''MortalKombat'', ''Film/{{Braveheart}}'' / ''XenaWarriorPrincess''[=/=]''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'', ''Franchise/StarTrek''[=/=]ComicBooks, ''Series/ThePrisoner'', Spaghetti Westerns and {{Pirate}}[=/=]GreatEscape.

* The 1988 WesternAnimation/MightyMouse episode "Don't Touch That Dial" featured not-so-affectionate parodies of ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones,'' ''WesternAnimation/TheJetsons'' (both paired up as "The Jetstones"), ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'' ("four totally off-the-wall characters sworn to eliminate any trace of humor in the world today") as well as an affectionate parody of ''RockyAndBullwinkle''.
