A later ''[=FoxTrot=]'' arc had Jason stuck inside his Darth Vader helmet until his dad rescued him. When Jason marveled at how his father was able to open the helmet, his dad commented that he had that problem with his Vader helmet during the original trilogy. -->'''Jason''': Wait, you mean that you were a Star Wars fan before I was? -->'''Dad''': Search your feelings, you know this to be true. -->'''Jason''': [[BigNo NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!]] * ''ComicStrip/BloomCounty'' once had an extended dream sequence that parodied ''Franchise/StarWars'', with Binkley as Luke Skywalker and other cast members playing various ''Star Wars'' characters. Notably, this sequence parodied academic discussions of Star Wars more than the films themselves. Darth Vader was a pompous film scholar who decried the Star Wars films as "intellectual Jell-O" fit only for the slow-minded masses. Binkley (as Luke) responds by slicing him in two with a lightsaber, and quipping "Jedi Knights aren't fond of critics." ** [[HilariousInHindsight Even better]], the very next comic has George Lucas telling Binkley that they have six more films, and should get to them by 1998. In the collected edition, Berkeley Breathed remarks "[[ThePhantomMenace I was one year off.]]" ** While Cutter John and the animals usually rode around in his wheelchair playing ''Franchise/StarTrek'', one Sunday strip involved them playing a variation of ''Franchise/StarWars'' (with Opus wearing "Luke" on his helmet) to take a shot at the recent breakup of the Bell System, with a reminder that the former parent company, AT&T, was [[http://s16.postimg.org/kek53bijn/deathstar.jpg still out there]].

[[folder:LiveActionTelevision]] * An episode of ''{{That 70s Show}}'' was set when ''Franchise/StarWars'' was first in theaters (It wouldn't become ''Film/ANewHope'' until years later). Eric worries about losing Donna to another guy, resulting in a dream sequence that puts the cast in ''Star Wars''. The best part is Red as Obi-Wan: "Jedi Knight? More like Jedi [[CatchPhrase dumbass]]."(As a result it became one of Eric's defining gags.)

* ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'' had one episode revolving around it. There was a parody of the Darth Vader fight on a catwalk and they even parodied "Use the Force" with "Use the soup." Another episode stole the trench run from ''A New Hope'', and another episode had a parody of the Death Star scene in Episode 4. On a gigantic [[IWasToldThereWouldBeCake cake]], no less. The episode's climax was a parody of the Super Star Destroyer's destruction - it really [[IncrediblyLamePun cut a slice into Father's plans]]. ** The School Bus Imperial Walkers and the Sled Snowspeeders in a giant Hoth/Snow Day battle.

* The ''SpaceQuest'' series has a number of ''Franchise/StarWars'' references, including a desert planet reminiscent of Tatooine which you crash your EscapePod on after your ship is captured by aliens, a defective R2-like droid, a Bow Tie fighter from the Cologne Wars on the garbage freighter in the third game, Imperial Probe Droid-like sentry bots, a [[LukeIAmYourFather Roger, I am Your Son]] revelation, Obi-wan and Darth Vader dueling in the back ground, et. al. The box for ''SQ 4'' even says "May the farce be with you!".

* ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' has ''[[WesternAnimation/AlvinAndTheChipmunks The Chipmunks Go to the Movies]]'', in which each episode was a parody of a well-known film, never actually did a ''Franchise/StarWars'' episode, but there was a few seconds of ''Franchise/StarWars'' in the title sequence, with Alvin as Luke, Simon as [=C3PO=], Theodore as [=R2-D2=], and David as Darth Vader. * ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'' had three ''Star Wars'' Specials building one episode revolving around it.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'' loves throwing in ''Franchise/StarWars'' references, but the second season episode "Love-Bheits" really takes it over the top and almost becomes nothing but a ''Star Wars'' parody episode.

It actually had Bowser as Darth Vader, the other characters as other ''Franchise/StarWars'' characters and 'Lightplungers'. ** [[SuperMarioGalaxy "May the Stars shine down on you..."]] * ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' does this a ''lot'', although the line between parody and {{Homage}} is often hard to determine.

It has the number "Luke Be a Jedi Tonight". Need one say more? --> Homer... use... the forks! [[ForkFencing Use the forks!]] * In ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' episode "Boogie Frights", the Boogie Man launches a giant disco ball to eclipse the sun so that his fellow nightmare creatures can party in the daytime as well and terrorize humanity forever. The Powerpuff Girls fly out to the disco ball in a dead-on parody of the attack on the Death Star. In the end, Buttercup flies out of the sun like the Millennium Falcon, winging two demons on Bubbles' tail with her heat vision, allowing Bubbles to fire a heat-vision blast that destroys the [[strike: Death Star]] disco ball.
