** The 100th episode, "My Way Home", is a parody of... you guessed it... ''Film/TheWizardOfOz'', complete with a protagonist who just wants to go home, a search for a literal heart for a transplant, "Over the Rainbow," and a painted yellow floor... among [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/My_Way_Home other references.]]

* ''Series/MrRobot'' has a darker take on this. The first half of "m4ster-s1ave.aes" is a dream of Elliot's that parodies 90s sitcoms like FullHouse (complete with 90s-esque commercials for E Corp). Eventually it is revealed to be [[spoiler: a dreamworld created by [[SplitPersonality Mr. Robot]] to spare Elliot the trauma of being beaten half to death.]]

* ''WebAnimation/ParkBench'' tried to do this in Episode 16, but the professor messed it up. (The parodies attempted were of ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'', ''Series/DoctorWho'', and ''DragonsDen''.)

** "Dangerous Curves" is an unusual example. It's basically a parody of the 1967 Audrey Hepburn/Albert Finney movie ''Two For The Road'', but it's done so subtly that a lot of people didn't even suspect that might be a parody. Since a majority of ''Simpsons'' viewers have probably never even heard of ''Two For The Road'', that was probably intentional.
