* ''Series/{{Frasier}}'': ''The Dr. Frasier Crane Show'' debuted on KACL on May 21, 1993, the airdate of the ''{{Cheers}}'' finale. ** The season 11 episode "Caught in the Act" has a gag about Kelsey Grammer having played the character of Frasier Crane for 20 years (first in ''{{Cheers}}'', then in ''Frasier''). In the episode Frasier meets his ex-wife, who's had a long career as the children's entertainer "Nanny G":

** This editor wonders why the most obvious was not named. When the sisters finally defeat the witch she melts. DG even comments, as if to make it more clear, "She, melted."

* The live action adaptation of Mei-chan no Shitsuji pulls an interesting one of these, when Shibata Kento is at an amusement park with Mei and Mikuru, and points out a live super hero show at the park, but Mikuru isn't interested. Kento is played by Takeru Sato, better known (To this troper, at least) for playing Ryutaro Nogami of ''Series/KamenRiderDenO''. It's also worth noting that the actor playing the male lead is Hiro Mizushima, another Kamen Rider alum, in his case having played Souji Tendou from Kabuto.

* ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' got its own MythologyGag in to the original series in the episode "Legacy". In the beginning, Picard mentions ''Enterprise'' is passing the planet Casmus II. Casmus II was a planet visited by Kirk's ''Enterprise'' in the 79th and final episode of the original series, "The Turnabout Intruder." "Legacy" was episode #80 of ''The Next Generation'', the point at which its run surpassed its predecessor's.

* In addition to the ReferenceOverdosed nature of the show, ''{{Psych}}'' is also a fan of this trope, with things like Shawn professing his love to Curt Smith (which is actually James Roday's love).

** In the series finale, "All Good Things...", not only do they [[MeetYourEarlyInstallmentWierdness superbly recreate the look of the first season]], right down to the ''TOS''-style miniskirt uniforms on the women, but the name of the shuttle used by Picard and Yar on their first approach to ''Enterprise'' in the past? ''Galileo'', which was the most famous of the shuttles on board the original ''Enterprise'', yet never before had been referenced on ''The Next Generation''.

* Much like ''Series/TinMan'', references to the original in the 2009 remake of ''ThePrisoner'' could make for an incapacitating drinking game. In the first episode alone:
