** ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' did this a lot, and SpinOff ''WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain'' did this just as often, if not more. For example, the biggest band in the world was [[Music/TheBeatles The Feebles]]... until [[YokoOno Yoyo Nono]] came along.

* In Mel Brooks' ''Film/{{Spaceballs}}'' (which parodies, among other sci-fi franchises, ''Franchise/StarWars''), Yoda becomes "Yoghurt" and the Force becomes "The Schwartz". Stop, you're killing me. (Okay, it is a funny movie, but that's certainly the lamest part of it.)
** Not to mention Pizza the Hutt (really stupid). Or "Dark Helmet" (Darth Vader), for that matter.
*** Pizza the Hutt is really more of an incredibly bad pun, given that he is a living blob of pizza toppings.
