** 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.

* Every anime indulge-r knows of ''Manga/DragonBall''....only whenever someone hears the name Son Gokuu, VERY FEW people are going to ever going to think about the original Monkey King from ''Literature/JourneyToTheWest'' over the iconic Saiyan protagonist, [[BilingualBonus since Son Gokuu is the Japanese rendering of the Chinese name Sun Wukong]]. This expands to many other works that involve the usage of Wukong's name in that form of Japanese rendering (also ranging to Japanese dubs of any original ''Journey to the West''-based media), which only shows how a majority of people are rarely associated with the original works and/or drama adaptations. It's to the point that in a nutshell, where people don't realize that ''Dragon Ball'''s version of Wukong/Gokuu was based off another prior guy with the same exact name (孫悟空).
