** There's also "The Snuke" (''24''), "Fantastic Easter Special" (''TheDaVinciCode''), and "Die Hippie Die" (''Film/TheCore''). As well as "Behind the Blow" (VH1 documentaries). Basically, the creators of South Park are in love with this trope.

* ''Manga/{{Patalliro}} Saiyuki'' is an entire ''series'' based around the concept of a parody episode, recasting the characters in a theme of ''Manga/{{Saiyuki}}'' or ''Literature/JourneyToTheWest'', usually to hilarious results.
* Half of all ''Anime/GalaxyAngel'' episodes. There was a Wild West episode, a {{joshikousei}} episode, a MagicalGirl episode (which was really a ''Anime/SailorMoon'' episode, but you can't blame them for having SmallReferencePools)...

* ''Manga/{{Gintama}}'', something of a parody of shounen manga in itself, also features several parody episodes, mostly of Japanese series such as ''Manga/DragonBall Z'' and a bizarrely cast ''Manga/NausicaaOfTheValleyOfTheWind'', not to mention a 2-part satire of ''Franchise/{{Saw}}'' and a movie-parody episode that touched on everything from ''Franchise/StarWars'' to ''Anime/MillenniumActress''. And of course the almost frame-for-frame [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fxE2zS5U_NM End of Gintamangelion]].
** Hell, there's even parody ''arcs''.
* The ''Franchise/LupinIII'' franchise ''frequently'' uses this trope. The original Manga stories simply used the Arsene Lupin Sansei character as a vehicle to drive a story, through whatever tale Creator/MonkeyPunch wanted to tell.



* Most of the ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' parallel works are these, although some have plot relevance. Not an episode perse, but they do feature new footage. The Manga version has quite a few more, and there's another, spin-off manga featuring the cast in a modern high school.
** Episode 6 might get a distinction as a parody of a stereotypical HotSpringsEpisode, considering the fact that it all goes to hell and what not. The same could be said of Episode 12, which is a parody of a stereotypical BeachEpisode.

* Many, many, MANY episodes of ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor''. To the point that it was becoming the regular formula for every episode. Most notably was the ''Animatrix'' parody that worked out really well, and one episode parodying ''Film/TheMatrix'' again, superhero comics, children books, ''Anime/DragonBall Z'', and... the ''PinkPanther''? All in one episode.

** All three segments of "Three Kings" were, as the name implies, parodies of Creator/StephenKing films adapted from books: ''Stand By Me'', ''{{Film/Misery}}'', and ''TheShawshankRedemption''.

* The "[[Series/TwinPeaks Dual Spires]]" episode of ''Series/{{Psych}}'', with the added bonus of the original cast of the show being parodied providing copious amounts of AdamWesting.

* 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.]]
