Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/TheMurderbotDiaries'' has ''Rise and Fall of Sanctuary Moon'', which the main character is a great fan of. The only discussion we see of the actual plot is that the colonyís solicitor apparently didnít kill the terraforming supervisor who was the secondary donor for her implanted baby.

* The telenovela in ''UglyBetty'', which has the added bonus in that non-Spanish speakers will have an even harder time understanding what's going on.

** Master Splinter has picked it up in [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2003 the 2003 toon]]. It's briefly {{lampshaded}} in the CGI movie (made doubly funny with VA Mako's delivery), and ''TurtlesForever'' starts with him watching a man say "I'm not your stepbrother - I'm your ''[[UnsettlingGenderReveal half-sister]]''!"

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/CodeLyoko'' has "Hospital of Horrors", which based on dialogue, appears to be horror themed, given that in a ZombieApocalypse episode, background character Millie states her zombified friend had eyes like a character from the show and another episode has a reference to giving someone a transfusion of poodle blood.

Added DiffLines:

** Notably, during Joey's original tenure on the show (and when it was revisited in Season 6's "what if?" episode), the real sets and actors from ''DOOL'' were used. When he returned to the show in the last few seasons it became a completely fictionalized version.
