* SmartAnimalAverageHuman: Creator/DaveBarry repeatedly mentions that the smartest character on Lassie is the dog, as the family is forever getting themselves stuck in deadly situations that Lassie needs to fetch the rest of the family to get out of. And even then, Lassie needs to bark for ten minutes before they finally get the message despite this happening every week. He believes Lassie has to do their income taxes as well.

* According to the director's commentary, ''Film/WhereTheDeadGoToDie'' was originally conceptualised as a Lassie parody, and the first segment still, is, while the others have other stories. Suffice to say, this is a ''very'' dark BlackComedy example, since the Lassie analogue, the [[DarkIsEvil black]], [[RedEyesTakeWarning red eyed]] labrador named [[PunnyName Labby]], is a horrific {{Hellhound}} that convinces the child protagonists to murder his parents, rips his unborn sibling out of the mother's womb, and [[DepravedBisexual has sex with him and the mother's corpse]].
