* The Creator/{{Codemasters}} computer game ''Rock Star Ate My Hamster'' had a plethora of music stars whose names were knock-offs of real musicians: [[Music/MichaelJackson Wacky Jacko]], [[Music/{{Madonna}} Maradonna]], [[Music/EltonJohn Elvin Dwight]], [[Music/SexPistols Rotton Johnny]], [[Music/TheRollingStones Dick Knackered]], [[Music/TinaTurner Tina Turnoff]] and so on. (This also extended to the names of rival charting bands, such as [[Music/PetShopBoys The Rent Shop Boys]], [[Music/DefLeppard Deaf Leper]] and [[Music/{{Bananarama}} Bazoomarooma]], and the names of directors, such as [[Creator/BusbyBerkeley Busby Berserkely]] and [[Creator/RidleyScott Wrigley Scott]].) Some make sense in context, as you can see. But this is taken to extremes with KylieMinogue's ersatz, who was baptized as ''Bimbo [[LordOfTheRings Baggins]]''.

* The Creator/BobClampett directed WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes short "A Tale of Two Kitties" featured the feline comedy duo of "Babitt" and "Catstello", a clear and unmistakable parody of the decidedly more human comedy duo AbbottAndCostello.
