* In ''[[Webcomic/{{Melonpool}} Melonpool,]]'' Melotians have the natural ability to pick up Earth TV braodcasts with the antennae growing out of their heads. The main character, Mayberry Melonpool, is completely obsessed with them - especially ''[[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries Star Trek.]]''
* The alien title character of ''[[Webcomic/{{Zortic}} Zortic]]'' is similarly obsessed with Earth's TV transmissions, and is also a huge Trekkie. The two strips have even [[CrossOver crossed over]] more than once.

This can be justified in various ways. Perhaps the character is a time traveler, or spent a great deal of time on Earth at one point, or [[AliensStealCable has intercepted Earth's TV and radio transmissions and fallen in love with them.]]

* The Junkions from ''WesternAnimation/TheTransformers'' are the kings of the AliensStealCable version of this. Their entire language was constructed from Earth television broadcasts they intercepted, and they speak in nothing but ad jingles and other TV references.

* Another ScummVM game, ''SimonTheSorcerer'' contains a fair share of references also. Somewhat justified what with Simon being transported from a modern world into a magical fantasy realm, but the fantasy realm itself seems pretty heavy on the references and not just to fairy tales and fantasy books, mind you.

* In ''Webcomic/{{Exiern}}'', the evil (if mostly snide and sarcastic) wizard Faren at one point gets his head lopped off. (He gets better.) While just a head, he starts singing, "[[Music/TalkingHeads Same as it ever was, same as it ever was...]]"
