* It is slightly hinted that ''Film/{{Spaceballs}}'' parodies ''Film/BeneathThePlanetOfTheApes'' as well. [[spoiler: When [[BigBad President Skroob]], Dark Helmet, and Colonel Sandurz crashland on the Planet of the Apes, an ape says "''Oh shit, there goes the planet.''" The scene changes after that, and never switches back to the planet, making it seem more of a WhatHappenedToTheMouse, but if you've seen ''Beneath the Planet of the Apes'', [[GenreSavvy you can assume what happens next]].]]
