* ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'': Rick Sanchez and Morty Smith originated as parodies of [[Franchise/BackToTheFuture Doc Brown and Marty McFly.]] Morty's role is mostly situational--his awkward and nervous personality makes him the opposite of the effortlessly cool [=McFly=]--while Rick is Doc's eccentric mad scientist persona explained by [[TheAlcoholic rampant alcoholism]].

* ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'': ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'' takes many of its characters from Justin Roiland's earlier work:

Rick Sanchez and Morty Smith originated as parodies of [[Franchise/BackToTheFuture Doc Brown and Marty McFly.]] Morty's role is mostly situational--his awkward and nervous personality makes him the opposite of the effortlessly cool [=McFly=]--while Rick is Doc's eccentric mad scientist persona explained by [[TheAlcoholic rampant alcoholism]]. On top of that, they're also expies of Doc and Mharti, characters from a much more direct parody of ''Back to the Future'' made by the same people as ''Rick and Morty'', and the character archetypes of a drunk, spiky-haired old man and his grandson were reused in several of Justin Roiland's cartoons between ''Doc and Mharti'' and ''Rick and Morty''.
** Mr. Jellybean is a clear expy of Crumply Crumplestein from Justin Roiland's ''Unbelievable Tales'', both being bean-shaped pedophiles who hold well-respected positions (Crumply is a DepravedKidsShowHost while Mr. Jellybean is a king).

* ''Bimble's Bucket'' takes ''a lot'' of similar character archetypes from Mike Jupp's previous show ''WesternAnimation/TheDreamstone''. While [[KidHero Bimble]] is basically a Rufus duplicate, [[TheBlindLeadingTheBlind Dolly Clackhanger]] and her [[MinionWithAnFInEvil docile minions]] very much resemble Sgt Blob and his cadets, with Mudge replacing Urpgor as their pompous rival for the approval of despot BigBad Queen Kak, who replaces Zordrak. In some cases even the character designs are only slightly tweaked from those of the initial show (the hero species are anthropomorphic rabbit-like civilians while the villains are big nosed humanoids).

** The pessimistic, deadpan protocol droid AP-5 is very similar to [[Franchise/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy Marvin the Paranoid Android]] (and Stephen Stanton modeled his performance on Creator/AlanRickman, who voiced Marvin in [[Film/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy the movie]]).

** A computer virus from an episode is based of of Keramon from Anime/DigimonTheMovie. They look nearly identical and they both [[spoiler: end up splitting into multiple ( read: Thousands!)copies in an attempt to do something horrible and are only stopped at the last second]]
