* 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!"

When on a comedy the characters make jokes at the expense of the studio or network funding their movie or TV show. In the U.S., the favorite target out of the Big Four Networks seems to be FOX, although all networks are AcceptableTargets at some point or another (Creator/{{NBC}} has seemed to ''encourage'' it since about 2006, right around when it became the ButtMonkey of the four major networks).
