In a turnaround, an episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' has Bart and Milhouse watching an unnamed version of ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark''. Which was in turn a reference to the ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' episode "Simpsons Did It".
** And WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse in "The Ring" and "Obama Wins!".

* ''Chronicles of Albion 2: The Wizbury School of Magic'' features a talking painting called Tripstaff. After you hang it on the art room wall, clicking on it produces a wide variety of increasingly ridiculous excuses, one of which is "Sorry, can't talk now, I'm watching a ''[[LiveActionTV/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Fluffy the Werewolf Slayer]]'' marathon."

** This occurs several times in ''ComicBook/StarWarsTales''; there are minor appearances of characters from outside the franchisee who appear in the background such as [[WesternAnimation/ToyStory Buzz Lightyear]], [[WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}} Bender]], a Franchise/{{Predator}}... among the few characters who sometimes pop up.

* ''WesternAnimation/XMen'' would sometimes feature cameos from Marvel characters who were off-limits due to belonging to other networks or production companies. The use of generic placeholder names in the scripts, such as "Large Green Neanderthal Robot" for an android duplicate of the [[Comicbook/TheIncredibleHulk Hulk]] or "African Mutant Refugee #3" for Comicbook/BlackPanther, helped get these past the lawyers. In one instance, after being told that he couldn't use Comicbook/SpiderMan in an episode, storyboard artist Larry Houston managed to sneak him in anyway by showing his arm firing a line of webbing.

* ''WesternAnimation/FantasticFour'' did the same thing, such as showing a group of plain-clothed tourists who were clearly supposed to be [[Comicbook/{{Wolverine}} Logan]], [[Comicbook/{{Cyclops}} Scott Summers]], Comicbook/JeanGrey, ppComicbook/{{Storm}} Ororo Munroe]] and [[Comicbook/{{Gambit}} Remy LeBeau]] in "Nightmare in Green," or Storm and her godson Mjnari popping up in Wakanda in "Prey of the Black Panther." "Nightmare in Green" also showed a shot of the Juggernaut's hand bursting out of the water, a reference to an earlier ''X-Men'' episode where he'd been hurled into the ocean by Gladiator.
