Added DiffLines:

* An InUniverse example is in ''Series/RemingtonSteele''. The main character, a classic movie buff would always find a film plot that matched the week's case. Several episodes did it outright, including ''Film/TheSting'' and ''Literature/AndThenThereWereNone''.

* ''Series/WonderWoman'': "Judgement from Outer Space" is basically TheDayTheEarthStoodStill1951 set during WWII and Andros taking the place of Klaatu. There's even a scene at the Lincoln Memorial.

Added DiffLines:

* ''[[Franchise/WinnieThePooh My Friends Tigger and Pooh]]'': "Rabbit and Turtle's Re-Run" is one for ''Literature/TheTortoiseAndTheHare''. Apparently, the story was about their grandfathers and they re-enact it to find out how it really ended.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/GleahanAndTheKnavesOfIndustry'' has been described as "''Literature/DonQuixote'' for the Millennial age," [[{{Downplayed}} but]] they only share the same initial premise. The actual plot varies wildly from the classic Spanish novel.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/ItalianoMedio'' starts as a ''Limitless'' parody, but it actually follows closely ''Film/FightClub'' if one thinks about it: dissatisfied man has a wild, outgoing alter ego who makes his most secret fantasies become true, becomes part of a group of eco-terrorists, and when their plot is set in motion he no longer wants to be part of it.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Anime/DarlingInTheFranxx'':
** Episode 10 shows that life in the Plantation inner city is basically ''Literature/BraveNewWorld'', and the kids are pretty much one of the lower classes used by the "adults" for their needs.
** The plot of "The Beast and the Prince", the book that shows up in Episode 13, is strikingly similar to Hans Christian Andersen's version of ''Literature/TheLittleMermaid''.

* ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'''s sixth season had a skit parodying ''Literature/OfMiceAndMen'' with the cast replaced with characters from ''WesternAnimation/RockyAndBullwinkle''. The skit ends with Rocky about to kill Bullwinkle in the same manner as George killing Lenny.
