* When characters in old Looney Tunes or MGM cartoons use the term "Come with me to ze casbah" they are actually referencing the 1937 film "Algiers", where Charles Boyer's "Pépé Le Moko" used this line. Note that people will probably not realize this, even if they HAVE seen this movie, because it was only used in the trailer.

* When ''Disney/{{Moana}}'' came out eagle-eyes viewers liked to point out the "easter egg" in ''Disney/LiloAndStitch'' where David (Lilo's Sisters Boyfriend) is seen wearing Mauis Fishhook as a necklace. The Internet was quick to point out that this was the equivalent of thinking that every character that wear a cross or crusifix in movies is in reference for ''Film/TheLastTemptationOfChrist''.
* On the comments of some ''WesternAnimation/InsideOut'' videos on YouTube, [[note]] mostly of talking toys of the character, but one instance occurred on How It Should Have Ended's take on the film[[/note]] people who have never seen the film will often assume that Bing Bong's dolphin noise was a reference to the ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'' episode "Sailor Mouth" by being used to censor a profane phrase. He's actually part dolphin, which is why he makes that noise. [[http://globalsoftpirka.tumblr.com/post/121738750013 This post]], which was made around the same time said videos popped up, probably led to this confusion.

''Film/TheLastTemptationOfChrist'', never mind the fact that ''Lilo & Stitch'' predates ''Moana'' by fourteen years.

* Many kids today will hear old Hawaiian standards only to think they first came from ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'' or ''Disney/LiloAndStitch''.

** Scranton, Pennsylvania: ''Series/TheOfficeUS'', and for older folks the song [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/30,000_Pounds_of_Bananas Thirty Thousand Pounds of Bananas]] by HarryChapin, which was in turn based on a real event.

* Chances are, if you hear the names "Dante and Vergil", you'll be thinking of the two iconic brothers from ''Franchise/DevilMayCry'' as opposed to the original ''Literature/DivineComedy''.

* The "Kyubey's Face" shots from ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' -- where all you see are his eyes, with the background being the color of his skin -- where actually first used for Kero in ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura''.

** If you've ever heard someone use the phrase "ready to rock and roll", they're more likely to have heard the phrase from a song in the episode "The Trouble With Truman" than the Elvis song of the same name, either because their kids watched the show or they themselves watched it when the show was popular.

* ''Series/TheNoddyShop'': People who grew up with this show will probably be more familiar with Johnny Crawfish than the comedian he was based off, Creator/JohnnyCarson. One of his songs, "Tooth Fairy", also falls under this trope, being a spoof of "Beauty School Dropout" from ''Film/{{Grease}}''.

** Japanese children will know the song as "The Ogre's Pants", which is a folk song that is sung to the same tune. The song is well-known in Japan for being the favorite song of Baikinman and Dokin-chan from ''Anime/{{Anpanman}}''.

*** Justified in this case, since Disney credited CharlesPerrault as the original author, rather than TheBrothersGrimm. In Perrault's version, the stepsisters are not [[LaserGuidedKarma punished]]. Instead, they beg Cinderella for forgiveness, and not only [[EasilyForgiven does she forgive them]], but she also arranges for them to be married into nobility. Apparently this ending was ''too'' happy, even for ''Disney'', so in the movie, the stepsisters have to settle for not being mutilated.
