* ''WebOriginal/DragonBallZAbridged'' makes a nod to "Cha-la Head Cha-la" that doubles as a BrickJoke, when Goku tells a bird to "teach a dinosaur to ride a ball" in the first Cooler movie.

* From the same franchise, the opening panels of the third of the ComicBook/AdventureTimeGraphicNovels, ''Seeing Red''. We see through Jake's eyes as he surprises Marceline, while she's playing her bass, and she turns and snarls at him in shock, replicating Marcie's appearance in the opening sequence.

** In "Peeping Mom", Bart tries to get away from a stalking Marge. Like in the HD opening, herides his skateboard past Sideshow Bob, Helen Lovejoy, Apu and his kids, Moe, Comic Book Guy. Disco Stu, Crazy Cat Lady, Rich Texan and Chief Wiggum, while Marge rides a bike over Moleman (she couldn't use the car because Homer threw the carburetor at a skunk). Afterwards, Moe says that they can all go inside this bar now that he's passed them again.

* ''BountyHamster'', episode "Twin Cheeks": The first appearance of Cassie's MirrorUniverse counterpart is accompanied by a MirrorUniverse version of the series's OpeningNarration.
* One episode of ''RockyAndBullwinkle'' has Rocky do the flying trick shown in the opening titles.
* One of the more bizarre examples occurs in ''SuperRobotMonkeyTeamHyperForceGo'' where Gyrus Krinkle imagines himself in Chiro's position from the show's opening narration, while wearing a foam head bearing Chiro's likeness.
* A hilarious example in ''RockosModernLife''. Filbert, cursed with bad luck, decides to go on with playing on the game show he was chosen for. Naturally, when he spins the wheel, it goes off its hinges and starts to go on a rolling rampage of destruction, running over various scenes including the last part of the opening sequence (where everybody's chasing Rocko), and cutting off the theme song as it does so.

** Done again in the sixth season "The Duh Vinci Code", as an extended DaVinciCode parody takes the crew to Rome. Their arrival in "Future-Roma" is a brief homage to their own credit sequence, including an ecclesiastical version of the show's theme.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' episode "Oil on Candace," the boys help a friend paint a giant painting on a sand dune while an instrumental version of the theme song plays. One of the tools they use are the giant helicopter-mounted paint rollers used during the "painting a continent" part of the title sequence.

** And in "Fireside Girls Jamboree," one of the merit badges Candace earns is for "discovering something that doesn't exist," in this case a [[PuppyDogEyes puppy-dog-eyed]] version of the unicorn/turtle thing from the appropriate part of the opening.

* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' has an ending shout out for Serena's Master Class showdown with Aria -- the start of it mimics the start of the third XY ending song, "[=DreamDream=]", only now Fennekin has evolved and Sylveon has joined the ranks. To top it off, the BGM during the performance is the same song (slightly remixed) and [[ImageSong sung by Serena's seiyuu]].

* In one episode of ''DragonBallZ'' when Goku is fighting Cell, while powering up he goes on to make the exact same movements he does during the anime's first opening theme song, with the key difference being that here he's in Super Saiyan form.
