* The opening pages of the first issue of ''ComicBook/AdventureTime'' replicate the show's opening flight over the Land of Ooo, with the implication that Jake is filming it with a video camera. The next couple of pages include Jake jumping on Finn's head and Finn riding a giant Jake through the mountains, replicating the first two sequences of the credit sequence proper. Later in the arc, the opening flight is replicated with SceneryGorn to show the effects of the Lich's attack.

Added DiffLines:

* In the ''Series/CrazyExGirlfriend'' episode "That Text Was Not Meant for Josh!", when Paula starts telling her husband about Rebecca, they quote the ''entire'' first season opening, complete with the show's title appearing at the end of the scene (this was set up by the fact that the regular theme and title were not where they were supposed to be).


Added DiffLines:

* In the ''WesternAnimation/ScaredySquirrel'' episode "The Talented Mr. Peacock", where Scaredy's everyday life is being disrupted by a peacock who is copying his every movie, a nearly beat-for-beat recreation of the show's intro happens at one point only with Mr. Peacock instead of Scaredy. ''Even better'' is what happens immediately after:
-->'''Scaredy''': ''(stands there in stunned silence)''\\
'''Dave''': Scaredy Squirrel is a character created by Melanie Watt.[[note]]This phrase is usually spoken by an announcer at the end of the intro[[/note]].

** Done again where Ms. Krabappel tries to make Bart go home (It's complicated. Maggie has gotten addicted to an annoying children's show. Okay, maybe not ''[[ItsALongStory that]]'' complicated). Bart is so terrified of it that he begs her to make him write some convoluted standard on the blackboard; she responds with "People got tired of that chalkboard gag ''years'' ago!"
** And that is referenced in a chalkboard. "Nobody reads these anymore."
