** ''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.

* 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 Music/KylieMinogue's ersatz, who was baptized as ''Bimbo [[LordOfTheRings Baggins]]''.
