* Keep an eye out for wacky theories about Christian allegory in ''In the Night Garden''. Makka Pakka lives in a cave, and garages his scooter in another cave, rolling a round stone in front to close the entrance (like Christ's tomb). He also goes around washing everyone's faces (John the Baptist). Igglepiggle goes out in a boat (sermon from the boat/"fishers of men"). Upsy Daisy (Mary Magdalen). The Pinky-Ponk (merkabah). And so on. The point is that the creators of ''In the Night Garden'' are all old enough to have had compulsory religious education at school, and have all the Christian imagery floating about in their heads, waiting to slip out into a programme concept.

* "Particle Man". Is it a pastiche of superhero comics, an allegory for the struggle between science and religion, or just a goofy little song by TheyMightBeGiants? The TMBG Wiki actually has an "interpretation" section for each of the band's songs.

->''"I understand. The bird represents God and coyote is man, endlessly chasing the divine, yet never able to catch him. Itís hilarious."''

->''"I understand. ->'''Anime Fan #1:''' This anime is pretty good, but this girl's outfit is super annoying. The bird represents God {{fanservice}} is really obnoxious.
->'''Anime Fan #2:''' Um, actually, if you watch the show the boob window on her suit is clearly satirical. It's a meta-commentary on human sexuality,
and coyote is man, endlessly chasing also it serves as a metaphor for how she wants other people to go past her outer-self and look within to her true self. It makes sense in context. And also the divine, yet never able original mangaka intended an allusion to catch him. Itís hilarious."''
the final scene of ''Literature/TheGrapesOfWrath'' with the breastfeeding scene. There's a lot of subtlety in play here that is clearly going way over your head!
->'''Thomas Manga, Original Creator:''' No, I just wanted to see titties.

** This is not to mention the several scholars who have been theorizing that the book has political undertones.
*** Henry Littlefield, seemingly the first of the bunch, and probably the most well-known, believed that the books argue in favor of bimetallism, a form of economic policy tat sought to create a fixed exchange ratio betwene the U.S. dollar, gold, and silver. Apparently, in his interpretation, the Wicked Witches of the East and West and clearly allegories to wealthy investors from the east coast and those who became wealthy as a consequence of the Gold Rush, respectively, as both of those groups opposed the adoption of silver and preferred to maintain the gold standard (as it would've severley devalued the U.S. dollar). The Good Witches of North and South represent the interests of farmers, who supported the change to bimetallism as to lessen their debt. The Yellow Brick Road in here represents the Gold Standard, which causes the Scarecrow (in here an allegory to farmers) to trip several times, but Dorothy can walk through it with the Silver Slippers.
*** Ranjit S. Dighe implies that the Winged Monkeys might be an allegory to Native Americans in their enslavement to the Wicked Witch of the West.

* The genre of ProgressiveRock is known for songs which are loaded with allegory, metaphor, obscure symbolism, and the ConceptAlbum, in which all the songs on an album are all based on a specific theme, or which are all part of a larger story. For instance, the song "SuppersReady" by Music/{{Genesis}} was based on the Literature/BookOfRevelation. Or their ConceptAlbum ''Music/TheLambLiesDownOnBroadway,''; which is about... [[MindScrew take your pick]].
