** One episode features one huge mythology gag. It's a bunch of kids telling their RashomonStyle stories about the Batman, one being 60's campy, one being Miller's Dark Knight, and at the crowning moment of funny they stumble upon a very feminine boy stroking a feather boa saying, "I love Batman, that rubber costume, the car that can drive up walls," and another kid remarks something along the lines of, "oh please give me a break Joel," an [[TakeThat/WesternAnimation obvious reference]] to JoelSchumacher and his Batman movies.

** The last scene of the series shows the Justice League running down a flight of stairs in groups; each group has a common bond, such as being part of the infamous "Satellite era" or being JackKirby creations.

** The opening scene of "Insecurity" has Black Spider in a parallel of the opening shot of ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan'', which was the previous series of show runner GregWeisman. As a CastingGag, the same actor who voiced Spider-Man in the show was brought back to voice Black Spider in his brief appearance.

*** Beyond that, there have been cameos by other Hanna-Barbera characters. [[WesternAnimation/ThePebblesAndBammBammShow Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm]] appear as beach-goers in one episode, while [[WesternAnimation/TheAmazingChanAndTheChanClan Suzie Chan]] makes several non-speaking cameos as a student at the Mystery Inc. gang's high school.

Some of the more significant ones, having more serious plot relevance, include the Blue Falcon and the cast of ''Johnny Quest'' in "Heart of Evil," and the villain of that episode was recurring ''Johnny Quest'' antagonist Dr. Zin.

** In another episode, the family is watching FOX's latest round of animated programming. Homer comments that animated shows are great for networks "because they don't have to pay the actors squat!" Flanders then walks by the window, stating that "they can replace them and no one can tell the diddly-ifference!" in an obviously-different voice. At the time, the Simpsons' cast had been engaged in very bitter salary disputes with senior management.

** A season four episode features anthropomorphic rhino [[UsagiYojimbo Gennosuke]], exploring NYC when he becomes taken with a muscular punk's outfit. One "shopping" trip later, he is seen wearing the outfit: a tight yellow wifebeater, cargo pants, and an ammo belt strapped across his gut--the outfit anthropomorphic rhino Rocksteady wore in the original TMNT series. To complete the look, Casey Jones slaps a helmet on him as he leads the rhino away.
