** ''Batman Black & White: Volume Three'' has the story "Urban Renewal"; it features some nostalgic flashbacks by characters to the "old days", and the flashbacks are drawn in UsefulNotes/{{the Golden Age|of Comic Books}} style as opposed to the more realistic present-day scenes.

* Harry Enfield did this a lot in his sketch shows, especially with the Cholmondley-Warner & Grayson sketches on ''Series/HarryEnfieldAndChums''. His later series ''Series/HarryAndPaul'' featured Retraux versions of modern films, such as a 1930s melodramatic version of ''Film/TheBourneIdentity'' and a silent version of ''Film/BrokebackMountain'' starring Creator/LaurelAndHardy.

* ''Series/{{Hustle}}''. An exposition scene explaining how an old-style con worked was done in the form of a black & white silent movie.

* The Norfolk Southern railroad has twenty "heritage units": [[http://www.nscorp.com/content/nscorp/en/news/norfolk-southernsheritagelocomotives.html modern freight locomotives painted in the liveries of predecessor railroads]] such as the Central of Georgia, Erie, Norfolk & Western, Penn Central, and Wabash.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Theatre/Grease'', first written in the 1971, is one of the first things people think of when they think of the 50s.
* ''Theatre/TheDrowsyChaperone'' was written as a parody of 1920s era musicals such as ''Theatre/AnythingGoes''. Without the Man in the Chair present, it could easily be mistaken for one, but then again, it's his commentary that makes the show so funny - otherwise it's just another over-the-top musical.

Added DiffLines:

* There's a newsreel playing in the queue for ''Ride/IndianaJonesAdventure'' that explains how Indiana Jones found the Temple of the Forbidden Eye, and that Sallah needs you (the rider) to go into the temple to find him. Given that the rest of the queue features period music, it's easy for an unobservant guest to assume that the newsreel is also generic window dressing from the era that they built the ride around. (Given that it features Sallah explaining the safety mechanism of the ride vehicle, you'd have to be ''really'' unobservant, but still.)


Added DiffLines:

* Each episode of ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' starts with a WWII-style newsreel either setting the scene or recapping the events of last week's episode, complete with film grain effect and boisterous narrator (who is actually a character in the series, but the two don't seem to have any relationship besides having the same voice).

Added DiffLines:

* The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X-KChYBFiB0 opening sequence]]of ''WesternAnimation/TheTripletsOfBelleville'' has a visual style reminiscent of Max Fleischer classic cartoons.

** Larry's talk show is, itself, rather Retraux. Like [[TheTonightShow Johnny Carson]], Larry does a lot of big, broad sketches where Larry and Hank wear elaborate and silly costumes. This style of comedy sketch became more or less extinct in late night after Carson's retirement, however. Characters occasionally remark InUniverse that none of the other talk shows do this sort of thing anymore.

** "Soos and the Real Girl" features another old game, ''Romance Academy 7'', a PC DatingSim similar to ''Franchise/TokimekiMemorial'', apparently from the [=1990s=]. Like ''Fight Fighters'', it has sprite-animation by Paul Robertson and was poorly translated. However, its main character, Giffany, is [[AIIsACrapshoot smart enough]] to have learned proper English.

* ''American Pickers'' did a commercial entirely in 8-bit NES style. Considering the premise of the show, it's quite fitting. Interestingly, the music seems to use the extra channels of the Konami [=VRC6=] chip with Sunsoft's trademark DPCM bass.

* One of the more unnerving "photos" of SlenderMan is [[http://actualplay.roleplayingpublicradio.com/wp-content/uploads/Slender-Man-2.jpg designed]] to look like it was taken in the early [[TheNineties Nineties]]. Details of note include a date watermark and added graininess, the latter of which is more pronounced due to the camera distortions that always pop up when Slendy is around.

* ''8mm'' is a app that simulates Super 8 8mm analog home movie effects for use on iPhone camera videos. Celebrities such as Music/HilaryDuff and SelenaGomez have (according to WordOfGod) used it for effect on Website/{{Instagram}} videos.
