** An inversion of the Trope. While "Hand und Franz" never eclipsed Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger by a long shot, many of their features and {{Running Gag}}s are incorporated in the [[TheAhnold numerous expies of him]].

* ''Manga/SgtFrog'': The anime commonly includes {{Shout Out}}s to older works to entertain some of its older audiences, so naturally for many younger viewers, it's often the first they've ever heard of certain things.
** Lampshaded by the Dub, in which the narrator tells people to search for ''Series/SpaceSheriffGavan'' on Youtube. Interestingly, that show actually ''was'' shown in America, but it's highly likely that most viewers never saw it.

* ''1066 and All That'', a 1930 parody of the patriotic Whiggish school history books of the early 20th century, has long outlasted the works it is parodying.

Occasionally the trope can be inverted, where the parody is forgotten, but aspects of it get associated with the original work.

Named for the fact that, when listening to the [[LongRunners earlier work]] of Music/WeirdAlYankovic, modern fans may be so unfamiliar with the songs being mocked as to not even realize that the Weird Al's song ''is'' a parody. For example, many people are now more familiar with "I Lost on ''Series/{{Jeopardy}}''" than with the original "Jeopardy" by the Greg Kihn Band (or even the original ''game show'' from the sixties). Some may even have forgotten Jimmy Webbs "[=MacArthur=] Park," or Coolio's "Gangsta's Paradise" (or Music/StevieWonder's "[[SampledUp Pastime Paradise]]," for that matter), remembering only Weird Al's "Franchise/JurassicPark" or "Amish Paradise."

* There was a popular AMV a few years ago called "Euphoria". It combined the song "Must Be Dreaming" with the anime ''Anime/RahXephon''. Rather better-known these days is a parody from ''AMVHell 3'': "[[Manga/AzumangaDaioh Osaka]] Must Be Dreaming". (Same visual effects, same song, but with clips of Osaka.)

* These days, it's nearly impossible to find references to the original 4 Non Blonds song "What's Up?". It has been almost entirely supplanted by the [[WesternAnimation/HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse He-Man]] parody remix, "HEHEYYEYAAEYAAAEYAEYAA" (part of a larger parody by Slackcircus created in 2005).

* This is simultaneously parodied and {{lampshade|Hanging}}d in ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' when the Warners meet UsefulNotes/RasputinTheMadMonk. They toss him into a dentist's chair and announce that they need to give him some "Anastasia." A girl in a tiara and a poofy dress then hit Rasputin on the head with a hammer. Dot [[BreakingTheFourthWall turns to the camera]] and deadpans, "Obscure joke. Talk to your parents."
