* In ''WesternAnimation/TheAngryBeavers'' episode "Salmon Sez", the Beavers' dam is blocking a group of salmon from migrating, thus preventing them from spawning. Not knowing what "spawn" means, Daggett comes up with his own definition in acronym form: '''S'''mashing '''P'''roperty '''A'''nd '''W'''homping '''N'''orb. He then comes to the conclusion that the salmon want to "[[AccidentalInnuendo SPAWN [his] brother]] [[DeathBySex to death]]!" Unfortunately for ''Creator/{{Nickelodeon}}'', the character name (and trademark) ''WesternAnimation/{{SPAWN}}'' was used without the written permission of ''Creator/NamcoBandai'', ''Creator/WarnerBrothers'' and ''Creator/{{HBO}}''.
