** The ''WesternAnimation/BoJackHorseman'' episode "Fish Out of Water" borrows much of its plot from ''Film/LostInTranslation'', with a washed-up actor going to a dreamlike foreign country to shoot promo material, not being able to understand the language, and trying to connect with a woman.

*** [[Recap/DoctorWhoS13E2PlanetOfEvil "Planet of Evil"]] is based on ''Film/ForbiddenPlanet'', which itself was a whole-plot reference to ''Theatre/TheTempest''. It also uses elements from Universal's JekyllAndHyde.



*** [[Recap/DoctorWhoS14E5TheRobotsOfDeath "The Robots of Death"]] is a mashup of Creator/IsaacAsimov's work, particularly his Baley/Olivaw books (especially in the subplot concerning the [[ThoseTwoGuys human and robot detective team]]). Only the plot structure itself is TenLittleMurderVictims.

* In ''Series/{{Community}}'' has done a few of these. An easy one to spot is Abed's birthday dinner with Jeff which is a reference to ''Film/MyDinnerWithAndre''.

* In ''Series/{{Community}}'' has done a few of these. An easy one to spot is Abed's birthday dinner with Jeff which is a reference to ''Film/MyDinnerWithAndre''. The twist is that Abed ''deliberately set it up to be so''--he wanted to take a break from being the MetaGuy and have a real conversation, and aping that film was the only way he could think of to try and do that. Jeff points out the irony that it's possibly the most meta thing he's ever done.

* ''ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse'': Some select stories homage other works in their entirety. For instance, one Italian one was based on ''Literature/Fahrenheit451'', just with the Ducks living in a dystopia where all books are forbidden. There's also a Danish one based on ''Film/TheShining'', though obviously with less ax-murder.
