* ''Magazime/{{MAD}}''
* ''Magazine/{{Punch}}'', a British magazine launched in 1841, was a groundbreaking satirical periodical, including satire of then contemporary society and politics. (It closed, a shadow of its former self, in 2002, having been fighting a losing battle against ''Private Eye''--for which see below--for at least 30 years).
* ''Punch'' was an express attempt at replicating a French satirical magazine of the day, ''Le Charivari'', a Paris magazine that lampooned July Monarchy-era French politics and mores--as evidenced by the British publication's full title, ''Punch, [[EitherOrTitle or the London Charivari]]''. The actual ''Charivari'' of Paris stopped doing satire shortly after ''Punch'' started, turning into a lifestyle magazine, after falling afoul of Louis-Philippe's censors.
* ''Punch'' also inspired an [[TransAtlanticEquivalent American publication]] named ''Puck'' (which ran 1871-1903).
* The pornographic magazine ''Magazine/{{Hustler}}'' uses satire to express Larry Flynt's beliefs and opinions. Almost always Juvenalian.
* The articles in ''Magazine/PrivateEye'' are mostly Juvenalian satire...when they aren't hard-hitting straight-up exposés of real wrongdoing. Sometimes articles do dip into the Horatian (particularly the Prime Minister parodies, which are usually too ridiculous to be truly stinging). Incidentally, the founders of ''Private Eye'' in TheSixties specifically cited (again) ''Punch'' in its heyday as their inspiration--rather than as it existed in their time, which they found rather insipid (and which eventually was reduced to writing nasty articles at the ''Eye''[='s=] expense).

* Even Music/JohannSebastianBach took a crack at satire, with his "[[Music/SchweigtStillePlaudertNicht Coffee Cantata]]" satirizing the then-emerging opinion that [[MustHaveCaffeine drinking coffee]] was a bad habit. Apparently, MoralGuardians were just as annoying in Bach's time as they are today.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{MAD}}'': Its a spiritual and satirical successor to Mad TV, in the form of an animated sketch series. It even had the nerve to ridicule James Cameron's: ''Film/{{Avatar}}''.
* ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'': It's done an excellent job with poking fun at Human Life. Even the aspects of daily life in the far-future have devolved into a tortured mockery of itself. In a most Juvenalian manner.
* ''WesternAnimation/YinYangYo'': Yin Yang Yo! often satirizes feminism by bringing up the hypocrisy done or said by radical feminist Saranoia, and to a lesser extent Yin. The episode "A Walk in the Woods" satirizes childhood obesity where Yin and Yang stayed indoors surfing the Internet all day and eating junk food.
* ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'': This show mocks and laughs at American Retro Pop culture, also old fashioned media censorship policies.
* ''{{WesternAnimation/Animaniacs}}'' uses this kind of humor 4 years later.

* Superflat is a PoMo art movement that was started by Takashi Murakami who was inspired by Creator/HideakiAnno. It sometimes satirizes many aspects of Japan (particularly things sparked by {{Anime}}) such as consumerism, the prevalence of {{UsefulNotes/Kawaisa}}, {{Lolicon|AndShotacon}}, and {{Fanservice}} along with the {{Otaku}} subculture that is the driving force behind all of them. However, since certain artists associated with Superflat are lolicon otaku themselves, it could also be seen as a form of self-parody. Furthermore, it should be noted that not all Superflat works are satirical in nature - Superflat Monogram, by Murakami and Creator/MamoruHosoda, for instance, is merely a Louis Vuitton commercial.
* UsefulNotes/{{Dada}} was a PoMo movement that was a satire of modern art and post-WWI malaise.

* Al Capp's ''ComicStrip/LilAbner'' is a brutal but comedic satire on society and culture.
* The ''ComicStrip/{{Dilbert}}'' comic strip is a satire of the corporate world. Mostly Horatian.
* ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'' contains a variety of satire. Most often Calvin himself acts as satire of [[ItsAllAboutMe narrow-minded self-centeredness of people]] or the shallow ethos of the consumer society, sometimes other things. His father's behavior is often satire of certain kind of parental behavior. Both of them sometimes offer satire of [[SeriousBusiness hobbies taken too seriously]] (bicycling for Dad and chewing gum for Calvin). And there's more.

* ''FanFic/LilyAndTheArtOfBeingSisyphus'' is a hilarious and exceptionally well-made satirical mockery of popular conventions in Harry Potter Fanfiction, the Harry Potter fandom, and the universe of Harry Potter in general. Of special note is the relationship between the Mundane and Wizarding worlds- which is sharply delineated in the source material and most fanfiction. In the protagonist's eyes ''there is no divide'', and a significant element of the humor stems from everyone around her being unable to parse this.

* Superflat is a PoMo art movement that was started by Takashi Murakami who was inspired by Creator/HideakiAnno. It sometimes satirizes many aspects of Japan (particularly things sparked by {{Anime}}) such as consumerism, the prevalence of {{UsefulNotes/Kawaisa}}, {{Lolicon}}, and {{Fanservice}} along with the {{Otaku}} subculture that is the driving force behind all of them. However, since certain artists associated with Superflat are lolicon otaku themselves, it could also be seen as a form of self-parody. Furthermore, it should be noted that not all Superflat works are satirical in nature - Superflat Monogram, by Murakami and Creator/MamoruHosoda, for instance, is merely a Louis Vuitton commercial.
