** A season 36 episode featured a fake trailer for the movie ''Unstoppable''. Denzel Washington (played by Jay Pharoah) asks Chris Pine (played by [[Series/MADtv Taran Killam]]), "Where'd you learn trains, huh? ''ThomasTheTankEngine''?" Couple months later, Cartoon Network's sketch show ''WesternAnimation/{{MAD}}'' came up with their parody of ''Unstoppable'' that also had a reference to ''Thomas The Tank Engine'' (only ''MAD'''s version combined ''Unstoppable'' with ''Thomas The Tank Engine'').

** The fact that SethMacFarlane would become one in a long line of ''SNL'' hosts is funny, considering that all three of his cartoons (''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', ''WesternAnimation/TheClevelandShow'', and ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'') have trashed ''SNL'' and its cast members. What's really funny is that the ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' episode "420" (the one where Brian petitions Quahog to legalize marijuana) has a scene where Peter is so stoned that, rather than set up a cutaway joke, just shows a list of celebrities he hates. The two people on that list are Music/JustinTimberlake (who isn't a cast member, but has hosted and cameoed enough times to at least qualify as an honorary cast member) and Andy Samberg (who actually left the show before the season 38 premiere, which is the episode that Creator/SethMacFarlane hosted, and is now on the FOX sitcom ''Series/BrooklynNineNine'').

* At the 2014 White House Correspondents Dinner, Joel Mchale joked that the Kardashians were Republican "because they’re always trying to screw black people.” One year later, in her tell-all interview, Caitlyn Jenner revealed she is Republican.

** In Issue #235 (Dec. '82), in MAD's satire of RockyIII (called "Rockhead III"), "Rockhead Bulboa" finds himself standing nose-to-chest when he faces off against the wrestling champion. When he is again standing nose-to-chest with "Blubber Lang," he says, "If this kind of posing keeps up, I want my next match to be with Dolly Parton!" Subsequently, Sylvester Stallone starred in the movie ''Rhinestone'', with -- you guessed it -- Dolly Parton.
