* In the original ''WesternAnimation/InspectorGadget'' episode "Focus on Gadget", Gadget gets his nose caught in an airlock door, which is a nod to the closing sequence of Creator/DonAdams' prior series ''Series/GetSmart'', where the last CONTROL HQ door closes on Maxwell Smart's nose when he attempts to shut it manually.

** Another episode has the family recreating their family photos, including one that says "Happy 1987." Bart, Homer, and Lisa look like their Tracy Ullman counterparts before shaking their heads and reverting back to normal.

* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries''
** 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 Creator/JoelSchumacher and his Batman movies.
** And another one was all-but an homage to the 1960s "campy" Batman starring Creator/AdamWest... who, appropriately, voiced himself as "The Gray Ghost" and his actor.
** The episode [[Recap/BatmanTheAnimatedSeriesE25TheClockKing "The Clock King"]] has one. First, let's admit that The ClockKing is an AtrociousAlias So Fugate, who is NotWearingTights, who averts all the tropes under the EvilMakeover and who [[TheyLookJustLikeEveryoneElse looks just like everyone else]] [[ComicBookMoviesDontUseCodenames never uses that codename]]. However, it's the episode title, so they work this:
-->'''Batman:''' [[StockPhrases I'm here to clean your clock]], Fugate.\\
'''Temple Fugate:''' Don't count on it, Batman. When it comes to ''clocks'', I am ''king.'' [[GratuitousFrench En garde!]]



* The writers of ''WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'' seem to love these:
** Iron Man jokingly mentions needing an electrical socket or a pair of batteries to recharge his armor at several points. While this would seem ridiculously outdated today, he did indeed use those to recharge his suit back in UsefulNotes/{{the Silver Age|of Comic Books}}.
** Black Widow is stated to have "Champion-class" security clearance in the ComicBook/{{SHIELD}} organization. In the comics, Black Widow was part of a team of superheroes known as the Champions.
** Hawkeye sarcastically states that the team should move to the West Coast at one point. In the comics, there was indeed a team known as the [[WestCoastTeam West Coast Avengers]], lead by none other than Hawkeye himself.
** Hawkeye and Black Widow are introduced as SHIELD black-ops agents rather than reformed supervillains like in the original ''Avengers'' comics. This concept was introduced in ''ComicBook/TheUltimates'', a modern day AlternateUniverse story.
** Additionally, the Skrull impostor disguised as ComicBook/CaptainAmerica wears the same costume worn by the UltimateUniverse incarnation of Cap.
** Hawkeye tries to piss off Chemistro in one episode by pretending to mistake him for Paste Pot Pete and the Hypno-Hustle, two outdated D-list Marvel villains.
** The show uses J.A.R.V.I.S., Tony Stark's AI system from the original ''Film/IronMan'' movie.
** When trying to rebuke claims that [[Comicbook/TheIncredibleHulk Hulk]] and ComicBook/RedHulk are not one and the same, Maria Hill mentions that she heard the Hulk "used to be gray". While his green form is the most iconic and well known iteration, the Hulk was indeed colored gray in his earliest [[UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Silver Age]] appearances, and he's returned to that form several times since.
** When Cassie Lang, the daughter of Scott "Ant-Man" Lang, is kidnapped, Hank Pym shoots her with Pym Particles, shrinking her down to a tiny size. After being rescued by her father and restored to her normal size, Cassie asks her father if they can "do that again." In the comics, Cassie would eventually become the size-changing Stature of the ComicBook/YoungAvengers.

** When Ultra Boy (not going by that name) makes his only appearance in "Champions," Phantom Girl calls him cute. The two are an item in the comics.

* ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold!'' features a few nods to Craig Bartlett's original ''Arnold'' comics. For example, the ending of the episode "24 Hours to Live" is based on the strip "[[http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20090624121327/heyarnold/images/d/db/Arnold_Narrowly_Avoids_a_Thrashing.jpg Arnold Narrowly Avoids a Thrashing]]".

** In "Treehouse of Horror XIII", Homer makes clones of himself. One of them resembles his old design from "The Tracey Ullman Show", with the same voice and catchphrase (the 'Frosty Chocolate Milkshakes' line).
