* Creator/MelBrooks screened Film/HighAnxiety for Creator/AlfredHitchcock. When the movie ended, Hitch didn't say anything; he just walked out. The next day, Mel received a box with expensive good bottle of wine, with a note saying "Mel: no need for anxiety about ''HighAnxiety.'' - Hitch"

* The WesternAnimation/{{Tumblr}} blog "[[http://thischarmingcharlie.tumblr.com/ This Charming Charlie]]", combining ''NewspaperComic/{{Peanuts}}'' strips with lyrics from Music/TheSmiths, is another example of mixed reaction, garnering a cease-and-desist from Universal Music on behalf of Johnny Marr and praise from Morrissey. Since the two jointly hold the copyright, and they have to agree in order to pursue a claim, and [[CreativeDifferences they don't]], the site remains.

** When Yankovic approached Music/{{LadyGaga}}'s management to spoof "Born this Way," he got turned down. Gaga herself heard about it, tore her management team a new one, and gave Yankovic a green light to spoof what he pleased.

* So many former ''Franchise/StarTrek'' actors have approved of ''Film/GalaxyQuest'' that [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galaxy_Quest#Reaction_quotes_from_Star_Trek_actors there's an entire section]] on TheOtherWiki's page about it. The best are from Creator/GeorgeTakei (who called it disturbingly accurate) and Creator/WilWheaton (who wanted to be cast as a guy who hated the child actor).

** Under Creator/StevenMoffat, the Big Finish Doctor Who series was given permission to use post-2005 characters and concepts, beginning with ''Series/{{Torchwood}}'' and UNIT, apparently at Moffat's own insistence. The audio series were also, unconditionally [[AscendedFanon given full "canon" status]] in one of [[Recap/DoctorWho50thPrequelTheNightOfTheDoctor his episodes]].

** Jake and other developers have also been very vocally impressed by the ''[[VideoGame/XCOMLongWar Long War]]'' GameMod and cited it as a major reason for including modding tools and assets with ''VideoGame/XCOM2''.

** One episode was devoted entirely to fanmade AVGN video games (and the recently released ''VideoGame/TheAngryVideoGameNerdAdventures''), from games available on the internet, to physical homebrew cartridges that he was given at conventions and meetups. Particular praise went to a hacked version of ''Mega Man 2'' that featured the Nerd in Mega Man's place.

* Doug Drexler, a popular AscendedFanboy within the ''Franchise/StarTrek'' series, was tickled pink when he was approached by Cryptic Studios for approval of making one of his popularly designed ships, the ''NX-Refit'' (namely a ''NX''-class from ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'' outfitted with a secondary hull that makes it a go-between of the ''NX''-class and the popular ''Constitution''-class) for ''VideoGame/StarTrekOnline''. In fact, Cryptic Studios approached CBS for permission to use this and they suggested they talk to Drexler himself.
