It's also a [[AllohistoricalAllusion cross-timeline gag]]: IOTL, Lucille Ball called President [[UsefulNotes/JimmyCarter Carter]] in... "[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Lucy Calls The President]]". ITTL, [[spoiler:[[NamesTheSame she]] ''[[NamesTheSame is]]'' [[NamesTheSame President Carter]]]]!

** Desilu decide against calling the ''Series/MissionImpossible'' remake ''Mission: Impossible: The Next Generation'', partly because nobody would take [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration show a with that subtitle]] seriously. Despite the lack of a subtitle, fans call the new series TNG, and the original series TOS.
