** ''Literature/TheAreasOfMyExpertise'' has a list of U.S. presidents to have hooks for hands, and Yale University was founded as an elaborate prank. Also, UsefulNotes/ThomasEdison kept thousands and thousands of crickets as pets and colonial Oregon (state motto: "In Oregon, where the shadows lie") was a cross between {{Mordor}} and The Nothing from ''TheNeverendingStory''.

* Creator/FritzLang serves as Ed's [[TheMentor mentor]] in ''Anime/FullmetalAlchemist: [[TheMovie The Conquerer of Shamballa]]''. Ed has no idea who he even is until about halfway through the film and even then he's not particularly impressed with him.

* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'', Mandark uses his science to turn the head of George Washington from Mt. Rushmore into a stone HumongousMecha so he can smash Dexter's lab. Dexter retaliates by likewise animating the Lincoln head and they clash...until the two Presidents find common ground in their legendary honesty, stop fighting, and walk off together chatting amicably.

* In ''Film/TheLegoMovie'', Abraham Lincoln, Cleopatra, and Michelangelo all appear in LEGO form at the Master Builders' meeting. The latter has another layer of hilarity added on, as the name Michelangelo is called twice: the first time it's the sculptor, and the second time, it's [[Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles the Ninja Turtle]].
