She boasted in her monologue that the episode marked her fifth time hosting ''SNL'', and led cast members in a celebratory musical number.

** In 2015, ''Series/ShurikenSentaiNinninger'' celebrated 40 years since the debut of ''Super Sentai'' with ''Series/HimitsuSentaiGoranger'' in 1975 by having two special guest stars in Episode 7: the two Red Rangers of the past ninja series, ''Series/NinjaSentaiKakuranger'' and ''Series/NinpuuSentaiHurricanger''. The episode was supposed to air on April 5, exactly 40 years to the day of the premiere of ''Goranger'', but due to the show's entire schedule being delayed by one week because of preemption regarding the death of a Japanese journalist at the hands of ISIS, it became a belated birthday celebration on April 12; nevertheless, Episode 6, which aired on the anniversary date because of it, still acknowledged the milestone by beginning the OnTheNext preview with a photocollage of all 39 teams up to that point.

* Almost always averted with the UniversalStudios parks. There were plans to do a park-wide celebration of Islands of Adventure's 10th anniversary in 2009, but it was cut due to there being virtually no budget for it, as at the time most of it was going into the construction of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. There was no 20th Anniversary celebration of Universal Studios Florida either, presumably for the same reason. In 2015, this was finally played straight when Universal Orlando honored their 25th anniversary, though even then the milestone nods were mostly limited to some special theming around the park and a new temporary logo.

** ''Film/MothraVSGodzilla'' was the 5th anniversary, and the first movie to cross two Toho properties (''Film/KingKongVsGodzilla'' was the first film to cross Godzilla over with another movie monster, but of course Kong isn't a Toho property[[note]]It is worth noting that ''Film/KingKongVsGodzilla'' was Toho's 30th birthday movie though.[[/note]]). Interestingly enough, ''Film/MothraVSGodzilla'' and ''Film/GhidorahTheThreeHeadedMonster'' were produced pretty much right in succession.
** ''Film/GhidorahTheThreeHeadedMonster'', the 10th anniversary film, was the first time Godzilla teamed up with other {{Kaiju}} and the first time he was portrayed as defending humanity. As another note, this was also the first film to cross over more than two Toho kaiju; crossing over a total of ''three'' [[Film/{{Gojira}} different]] [[Film/{{Mothra}} kaiju]] [[Film/{{Rodan}} movies]]; a record of which wouldn't be broken until 1968's ''Film/{{Destroy All Monsters}}''.

** The franchise celebrated 30 years with ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' and ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' doing special episodes that referred back to the original crew. ''Deep Space Nine'' did a revisioned look at the events of the ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' episode "The Trouble With Tribbles" via TimeTravel, and ''Voyager'' also did a TheGreatestStoryNeverTold with what Captain Sulu did during the majority of the events of ''Film/StarTrekVITheUndiscoveredCountry''. The reason why ''Voyager'' had one featuring Sulu was that "The Trouble With Tribbles" was one of several Season 2 episodes to not feature Sulu (thanks to Creator/GeorgeTakei filming ''The Green Berets'') and it just seemed strange to not include the character somehow in the 30th anniversary...
** ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'''s 100th episode, "Timeless", featured the destruction of Voyager with only two survivors from a botched attempt to return home. Harry and Chakotay used TimeTravel to SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong, which made them fugitives of Starfleet. Adding to the occasion was guest star [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration LeVar Burton]], who also directed the episode.

** Its 500th episode had a couch gag that showed all the previous 499 couch gags, all continuing to pan skyward as they play out until it stops with the multiple incarnations of the family sitting at their couch, forming a mosaic "500". In addition, the chalkboard gag is Milhouse writing "Bart's earned a day off" and the opening logo includes a caption declaring "The most meaningless milestone of all!", referencing the chalkboard gag from the 100th episode. Also, Lisa's playing a sousaphone for some reason. The gag for the 499th episode was a surprise 500th episode party. When Lisa points out the error, Moe replies, "Well, guess what? Fox isn't doing this again."
** They also spoofed their actual 100th episode -- all they did was have Bart write the lines "I will not celebrate meaningless milestones."
