Creator/PhilLord and Creator/ChrisMiller (the ''Film/TwentyOneJumpStreet'' movie, ''WesternAnimation/CloudyWithAChanceOfMeatballs'', ''WesternAnimation/CloneHigh'') [[http://collider.com/lego-movie-greenlight/126173/ penned and directed the first live-action/animated theatrical LEGO movie]], called ''WesternAnimation/TheLEGOMovie'', released in 2014. And, as the first trailer reveals, the movie itself takes from both classic Lego characters as well as its newer licensed success; Franchise/{{Batman}} is a main character (with cameos from Franchise/{{Superman}}, Franchise/WonderWoman, the Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles, and others) along side one of the generic Builder dudes.

* UnreliableCanon: Trying to decipher the canon (outside of its more story-oriented themes such as ''Franchise/{{BIONICLE}}'') can be a real mess, though it hasn't stopped many from trying. Perhaps the greatest unreliability is the LEGO timeline and universe.

* FanNickname: Cheese slopes are the most well-known, but other parts, mini-figs and themes have been nicknamed.
* FunWithAcronyms: AFOL (Adult Fan of Lego), TFOL (Teen Fan of Lego), MOC (My Own Creation), SNOT (Studs Not on Top), and lots more!
** Others include BURP (Big Ugly Rock Piece) and POOP (Piece Out of Other Pieces).
* MisaimedMarketing: Cleverly averted. The 2016 DC Super Heroes set manage to tie in loosely to ''Film/SuicideSquad'', but avoid any outcry over the subject material by using the comic versions of the Squad instead.

* In the episode ''To the Lighthouse'' of ''TheSarahConnorChronicles'', John Henry is seen building a mountain out of LEGO bricks. However, he talks about Solek on Voya Nui, when it's supposed to be Karda Nui, and the Toa protecting the Mask of Life, when they were actually trying to claim it before the Makuta do. Since John Henry is a robot with Internet access (and in fact commented that there are no ducklings on Voya Nui in that episode), it[=/=]he should know better.

* A pair of minifigures actually serve as the flight attendants of the backpack in which [[{{Franchise/Barbie}} Barbie and Ken]] arrive in the ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'' short "Hawaiian Vacation."
** A LEGO rabbit appears in ''WesternAnimation/ToyStoryOfTerror''. Notably, it's able to use the bricks it's made up of to shapeshift into objects the characters need, like a stairwell.
* A BlackComedy [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R2i_CKDrZUw sketch from]] ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' wrings plenty of horror from the PerpetualSmiler expression typical of LEGO minifigures. Just a few of the show's other LEGO-themed sketches include "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LqmWWLWLYsE The Great Pyramid]]", "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=udKbB-di1oY LEGO My Pieces]]", "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MHaDiyA-0BY LEGO Babel]]", and "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mGAqY9f9tWg LEGO Star Wars]]" (with Billy Dee Williams reprising his role of Lando Calrissian).
