* A Real Life tragic incident involving ''Literature/TheCatInTheHat'' balloon knocking over a lamppost and injuring a woman resulted in new wind restrictions for the balloons, and new size restrictions for their designs, which in turn forced the retirement of many longtime favorites, including WesternAnimation/ThePinkPanther and WesternAnimationWoodyWoodpecker. A similar incident involving a balloon of the M&M's characters less severely injured a little girl, who notably pleaded that Macy's not retire it on her account. It was, however, removed anyway in 2007, to be replaced with a float saluting Broadway.

* Probably the franchise most represented in the parade over the years would be ''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}'', usually Snoopy (with or without Woodstock), but also for a few years represented by two balloons, one of Charlie Brown, the other of the elusive football he's trying to kick. Most likely various {{Muppet}} based balloons (Kermit, Grover, Big Bird) would be next, followed by Disney (MickeyMouse, DonaldDuck, Goofy, Buzz Lightyear, various one-year balloons celebrating upcoming Disney films).
** Balloons of WesternAnimation/{{Underdog}} and [[RockyAndBullwinkle Bullwinkle]] were also long-running features of the parade in the past; both balloons were referred to in, among other places, ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''.

* The ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry'' short, "The Little Orphan", took one of the basic concepts of "The Milky Waif" (always-hungry orphan Nibbles appears at Jerry's doorstep), and turns it into a Thanksgiving story by showing that Jerry had volunteered to host an orphan mouse for the holiday. Less lion-roaring PapaWolf Jerry, more [[FoodFight Food Fighting]].

* ''Film/MiracleOn34thStreet'' actually begins on Thanksgiving with the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade in need of a Santa Claus performer (in RealLife, the parade always ends with a Santa's sleigh float, and thus Santa).
