!!References in other works:
* According to the director's commentary, ''WesternAnimation/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]].
* Parodied with Laddie the Wonder Dog in the Discworld novel ''Discworld/MovingPictures''.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'' has Billy addicted to a heroic Labrador also named Laddie; Billy often wonders aloud, "How many times can that kid fall down that well?" PS, he keeps watching the same video over and over.
* On ''The Jimmy Dean Show'' in the 1960s, Dean's co-star [[Franchise/TheMuppets Rowlf the Dog]] several times mentioned how much he admired Lassie, and Lassie made two guest appearances on the show. In the episode with Lassie's second guest appearance, Rowlf did a skit in which he acted out a Lassie-like scenario narrated by Dean, heroically fighting through hostile terrain, swimming across a raging river, and racing up the other bank to stop the criminals about to dynamite the bridge! ...at which point, Rowlf stopped the skit and complained that it would have been nice if somebody had mentioned the bridge ''before'' he swam across the raging river.
** Rowlf's admiration for the famous collie resurfaced in the soundtrack of ''[[Film/TheMuppetMovie The Muppet Movie]]'' when he and Kermit sang the duet "I Hope That Something Better Comes Along." Rowlf sings, "Or a collie that's classy ... a lad needs a Lassie ..." [[note]]This verse was edited out of the actual movie, though it still exists on soundtrack recordings.[[/note]]
* Spoofed in the "Mindy and Buttons" segments of ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}''. Its TitleSequence was a direct parody of the ''Series/{{Lassie}}'' opening.
* ''Series/ItsGarryShandlingsShow'' did a parody, involving a dog named [[LawyerFriendlyCameo Laffie]].
* ''Series/InLivingColor'' did a parody, involving a pit bull.
* ''WesternAnimation/MarthaSpeaks'' features the in-show TV program "Courageous Collie Carlos", of whom Martha is a major fan.
* Two in ''Series/WhoseLineIsItAnyway'': one suggestion for the everpopular ''Scenes From A Hat'' game was 'what Lassie is really trying to say', and later on an actual Lassie became the only animal guest on the show.
* "Sassy the Wonder Dog" is a series of radio ads from The Shelter Pet Project, where Timmy and Sassy often pause from helping one of Timmy's luckless friends out of the well in order to tell the listeners about adopting a dog from local animal shelters.
