* One arc of ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'' ends with a climactic battle in the Fuji TV station, which broadcast the show in Japan. It's mercilessly destroyed, although part of the architecture is used to destroy the BigBad. The English dub just refers to "the TV station," which is a shame--the dub aired on Fox and everything!

* The autographs of Creator/WolfgangAmadeusMozart's horn concertos, apparently all intended for Joseph Leutgeb, a horn player 23 years Mozart's senior, include various insulting remarks directed at the performer. Most notoriously, the Rondo of K. 412 includes a mocking running commentary in Italian that begins with the incorrect tempo marking "Adagio."

* Something similar happened on ''Series/DestinationTruth.'' Josh Gates is browsing through a marketplace in Turkey (I believe) and sees a beautiful rug. The shop owner tells him the price and Josh looks surprised. They then cut to him looking at much smaller rugs, roughly the size of a sheet of paper (the shop owner suggests using them under a telephone,) and Josh says "I work on cable, my friend, this is all I can afford." He never explicitly mentions Syfy, but the implication is there.

* In one episode of ''Radio/TheUnbelievableTruth'', Miles Jupp starts attempting to ''predict'' that John Finnemore will lie in the next sentence, and obviously loses points. In the ensuing debate about whether this innovation is really a good idea, David Mitchell claims that letting a format stagnate is one of the founding principles of Radio 4.

* ''Franchise/{{Ultima}}'': In ''VideoGame/UltimaV'', "ELECTRONIC ARTS" is found in the profanity filter file. In ''VideoGame/UltimaVI'', the pirates are named after Electronic Arts employees Trip Hawkins, Bing Gordon, Stewart Bonn and Joe Ybarra. In ''VideoGame/UltimaVII'', Elizabeth and Abraham form the initials EA, and the cube, sphere and tetrahedron generators match the square, circle and triangle of the EA logo. The cube, sphere and tetrahedron appear in the morphing object in ''VideoGame/UltimaVIII''.

* ''Series/DickAndDomInDaBungalow'' did this on their final episode. They launched into a huge song and dance number about how the show was "Good clean family fun from the BBC" (It was the most complained about kids show the BBC aired), how it had a constant weekly spot on ''Series/PointsOfView'', how members of the Houses of Parliament had complained about the show and how it was funded by your parents licence fee. Before having the largest slime-fest ever on the show. Then after the credits, the show was revealed to be dream by the then head of the BBC, before the two hosts woke up in his bed laughing manically. See it [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6yFoqUDqq3I here]]
** Also, just after the Houses of Parliament incident, the BBC asked them to be "more educational". They responded the next week by adding a teacher in the background during the game segments, who wasn't mic'd up, only being able to here him through the hosts microphones, (such games included: Euugghhhh... Yum Yum in which mushy peas and custard were thrown at kids to catch and Make Dick Sick, in which the objective was to make the host throw up) and replace the cartoons ''WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain'' and ''WesternAnimation/FairlyOddParents'' with episodes of ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'', (Which at the end of the show they destroyed the tape).

* In ''Disney/TheLionKing'', Zazu starts to sing "It's A Small World." Scar [[BigNo freaks out]] and demands him to sing [[AnythingButThat anything else but that]]. [[Theatre/TheLionKing The stage musical]] uses "Be Our Guest". It doubles as a MythologyGag, since "Be Our Guest" was from [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast the first Disney animated film that became a musical and paved the way for Lion King to come on Broadway]]. When ''Beauty and the Beast'' closed, it got replaced with [[Film/MaryPoppins "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious."]] In later runs, it was replaced with [[Disney/{{Frozen}} "Let It Go".]]

* On ''MatchGame PM'', Gene Rayburn would note that all players would receive a home version of ''Match Game.'' Richard Dawson would quip "The loser gets ''two'' of them!"
* A Bill Cullen episode of ''ThePriceIsRight'' had all contestants overbidding on an item, the result of which nobody would win it. Bill noted that a bonus was involved with a check for $1000. To make it official, Bill tore the signature off the check, after which he'd snark "I've always wanted to tear up Goodson and Todman!"
