* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'': The Warner Brothers ([[InsistentTerminology and the Warner Sister]]) can be taken as a throwback to TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation and other comedies of the time like those of the MarxBrothers, especially considering that their backstory is that they were created in the Thirties. Also they stole many, many jokes from them.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow'' was like a tortured, horrifying version of [[TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation Golden Age cartoons]], complete with animation style and specific gags copied from Creator/TexAvery (and ''Looney Tunes'' to a lesser extent).

** ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' took most of its inspiration from the classic Disney animated musicals of TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation. It was so successful, it wound up [[GenreTurningPoint resurrecting the entire genre]] and kicking off what came to be known as [[TheRenaissanceAgeOfAnimation the Disney Renaissance]].

-->'''Blow:''' ''What I'm trying to do as a designer is take everything about adventure games I don't like -- 'cause I loved adventure games when I was a kid but, man, as a game designer now who has ideas about design I just look at them and I think they're all really bad and I just kind of solve them in a way that uses our modern understanding of game design as best as I can.''

** Most of the works of (''Manga/{{Monster}}'', ''Manga/TwentiethCenturyBoys'', et al...) hearken back to the suspense-thriller gekiga stories that first appeared in the '60s, particularily Creator/OsamuTezuka's attempts to get in on the act, such as ''{{MW}}'' & ''Adolf''.

** ''[[ComicBook/NineteenSixtyThree 1963]]'', which is a sendup of early Marvel comics, especially those of StanLee (Moore was able to replicate Lee's PurpleProse and self-promotion abilities perfectly).

* Despite the ''very'' common misconception that ''Film/PacificRim'' is an imitation of ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion,'' it's actually a very straightforward throwback to the {{Kaiju}} films and HumongousMecha anime of the 1950s-70s, the same material which ''Evangelion'' famously deconstructed in the '90s, making this a clear-cut case of OlderThanTheyThink. * ''Film/TheMonsterSquad'' is a throwback to the classic Franchise/UniversalHorror films, particularly the ones featuring a CrossOver of two or three monsters such as ''Film/FrankensteinMeetsTheWolfman'' and ''Film/HouseOfDracula.'' ''The Monster Squad'' ups the ante by bringing five monsters together, but otherwise stays pretty close to the spirit of the classic films.
