* The children's book ''Benjamin Franklin Lives!'' supposes that the Revolutionary figure never died but was instead put into suspended animation by the AncientConspiracy [[ShownTheirWork the Modern Order of Prometheus]]. He [[RipVanWinkle wakes up]] [[CultureClash in modern times]] just in time to help the kid protagonist with his science fair project. Unfortunately something went wrong with the reanimation process (he is powered by electricity, [[ItRunsOnNonsensoleum somehow]]), and [[HilarityEnsues every time he either runs low on energy or gets overcharged]], he becomes a zombie or [[PopCulturalOsmosis he turns into a rampaging monster]]...

** ''Literature/MoreInformationThanYouRequire'', which has a particular thematic emphasis on presidents, plays this trope for all its worth. Notably, UsefulNotes/TheodoreRoosevelt is an internet MemeticBadass, George Washington was history's greatest [[TheStoner drug addict]], Thomas Jefferson was in league with the molemen (and Sally Hemmings ''was'' a transgender moleman), most of UsefulNotes/AbrahamLincoln's presidency was actually faked by Edwin Booth until the real Lincoln was tragically murdered by Booth's [[CainAndAbel vengeful brother John Wilkes]], Aaron Burr was an EvilOverlord [[Franchise/StarWars chewbacca]], and John Quincy Adams was [[ThingsThatGoBumpInTheNight the boogieman]]. And let's not forget Napoleon Bonaparte's [[MoonBase lunar colonies]] or the picture of [[BigfootSasquatchAndYeti Sasquatch]] labelled Creator/JDSalinger.

** In the episode ''Escape from the House of Mummies, Part 2'' there is a B-story going on that the audience only gets to see parts of, making the appearances of UsefulNotes/SigmundFreud, EmperorCaligula, and Creator/EdgarAllanPoe come of as very random bits of humor. This trope would also seem to cover flashbacks to earlier events surrounding the ORB and the creation of the Guild of Calamitous Intent which was appartently put together by old rock musicians and is now run by Music/DavidBowie.
