* Pretty much the whole main plot of Season 3's "Tweek vs. Craig" becomes this after Season 19's "Tweek x Craig". In the former, the two are goaded into fighting each other and Clyde outright says (albeit slightly misguidedly) that they "really hate each other". In the latter, the two start dating to satisfy the town and end up at the very least very close friends, with some later official notes even stating that Tweek is one of the only two things Craig actually cares about.

*** The However, many people who don't like Trump may instead find this a FunnyAneurysmMoment -- including the writers themselves, as the season 28 episode "Havana Wild Weekend", the first episode after the 2016 election, started with a chalkboard gag where Bart wrote "Being right sucks."



* In "Itchy and Scratchy Land", Homer and Marge go to a 70s nostalgia bar, where Marge points out how the bartender looks like JohnTravolta. The bartender, who is indeed Travolta, mutters "Yeah, 'looks like'." Right around the time the episode originally aired, Travolta made [[CareerResurrection his comeback]] with ''Film/PulpFiction''

** In ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution'' when the Brotherhood is first introduced to [[ComicBook/ScarletWitch Wanda]], Lance sarcastically asks if she's Pietro's old girlfriend when in fact she is his sister. Later, in the [[TheUltimates Ultimate Avengers]] universe, they would be [[BrotherSisterIncest boyfriend and girlfriend, as well as brother and sister]]!

* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'' had a scene in which Terry tried to remember all of the U.S. presidents. He recites them up until Clinton (the current president at the time of the show's production), and then draws a blank. All he can remember is that the president after Clinton was "the boring one" (implying that Al Gore was supposed to be President after him). Depending on political leanings, this is either very funny or [[FunnyAneurysmMoment very depressing]], since Gore never did become President as expected.

* In "Jungle love", Peter is demoted following an inebriation that caused damages in his brewery, he is placed under the authority of Opie, a mentally challenged man who only talks in gibberish and asks Peter to put his finger in his mouth and then bites it. This gets absolutely hilarious when it is revealed 11 seasons later that Opie was not retarded: he was only drunk all this time!
