** 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]].

* The developers of ''VideoGame/XCOMEnemyUnknown'', Jake Solomon and Ananda Gupta, have [[https://mobile.twitter.com/agauntpanda/status/401702145831223297 regularly]] [[https://mobile.twitter.com/solomonjake/status/624583121548247040 shown]] their support for [[https://m.youtube.com/user/Beaglerush Beaglerush]], an influential player of their games. They would later [[https://mobile.twitter.com/beaglerush/status/393240150911635456 give]] him a code to review the upcoming Enemy Within expansion. In turn, Beaglerush goes through every single piece of [[https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/18RgjzMfgO1CYuaoRQH2tAZ7nP4UvBtIKZpTRR7dzaUs/htmlview?sle=true#gid=942779548 fanart]] submitted to him, especially praising talented artists and writers such as Vesmolol's [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10974108/1/Alive-and-Impossible fanfiction]].
** 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.

* As with ''Murdoch Mysteries'', ''Series/MissFishersMurderMysteries'' takes quite a few liberties with the [[Literature/PhryneFisher source material]], but author Kerry Greenwood likes it anyway.

Added DiffLines:

* Composer Alberto Ginastera gushed about Music/EmersonLakeAndPalmer's adaptation of his work "Toccata", praising it as "diabolical" and saying that the band had "captured the essence of my music, and no one's ever done that before". Music/AaronCopland also liked the band's adaptations of "Hoedown" and "Fanfare for the Common Man". On the reverse side, Keith Emerson, who wasn't always thrilled with covers of his band's work (most likely because it's so difficult to play and few people have the chops to pull it off properly), praised Music/JordanRudess' covers of ELP, most notably "Tarkus".
