* ''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).

* ''MythologyGag/StarWarsRebels''


Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels'':
** As in the original trilogy films, the series starts with an Imperial Star Destroyer gliding ominously across the top of the screen. (This time, it's in a planet's atmosphere.)
** During one scene, Zeb [[PaperThinDisguise poses as a "Hairless Wookiee"]] in order to infiltrate an Imperial compound. Zeb's design is based on the early concept art for Wookiees.
** Obi-Wan's holocron message (itself a ContinuityNod to ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'') ends with him saying the remains of the Jedi Order need to stay in hiding, but "Film/ANewHope will emerge."
** The Inquisitor is [[Film/RevengeOfTheSith Pau'an]].
** Kanan's speeder-bike is described in supplementary materials as being a Joben-T85 produced by Zebulon Dak Speeder Corporation, referring back to the ending of the first arc of the ''WesternAnimation/{{Droids}}'' cartoon.
** The pilot droid RX-24 from "Droids in Distress" was the pilot in the original ''Ride/StarTours'' ride. They're both even voiced by Paul Ruebens.
** In "Breaking Ranks", Kanan and Hera go after an Imperial kyber shipment, mention of which goes all the way back to a May 1975 synopsis of an early draft of ''Film/ANewHope'' (although its own page]].first actual appearance was as the MacGuffin in ''Literature/SplinterOfTheMindsEye'' and it's now spelled as [[SpellMyNameWithAnS "kyber crystal"]]).
** The Imperial troop transports bear a strong resemblance [[http://a.dilcdn.com/bl/wp-content/uploads/sites/6/2013/09/t_vh_vin_imperial_troop_transport.jpg to this 1979 toy]], down to the prisoner cells mounted on the sides.
** The training obstacle course in "Breaking Ranks" is [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Tyu3rrBgHk&list=PL148kCvXk8pBBJ1-qxpc_fdnlg0WiFWDS confirmed by Dave Filoni]] to be based on both the Box and the clone training yard from ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars''.
** The lines that the Grand Inquisitor says to Ezra in "Gathering Forces" are similar to what Emperor Palpatine says to Luke in his throne room in the Death Star in ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi''.
*** Kanan has a [[VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic star map]] in the holocron.
*** [[spoiler:Ezra's]] lightsaber sounds similar to Kylo Ren's from the ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' teaser.
*** When [[spoiler: Ezra]] first activates his lightsaber, [[http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/starwars/images/2/21/Star_wars_old.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20100708051712 he holds it very similarly to Luke in a poster for Film/ANewHope. ]]
** The title of the episode "Idiot's Array". In the old Expanded Universe an "Idiot's Array" is [[InstantWinCondition a winning hand]] in sabbac (and the episode establishes that that's still the case in the new continuity).
** The [[spoiler:Kanan vs Vader]] fight in "The Siege of Lothal" is noticeably slower and heavier than fights in the rest of the series, resembling the original Obi-Wan vs Vader fight in ''A New Hope''.
** "Shantipole" is the project name for Quarrie's B-Wing development program as well as the planet it takes it name from. In the old {{EU}}, Shantipole was the name of the asteroid base where the same B-Wing development program (called the Shantipole Project) was conducted by Admiral Ackbar.
** The ''Hammerhead''-class corvettes used by Princess Leia resembles the Endar Spire from ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic''. They even share the same class name, ''Hammerhead'', with the difference being that the former are corvettes while the latter were cruisers.
** The Empire's national anthem in "Empire Day" is an upbeat remix of the Imperial March.
** Darth Vader's helmet design is reminiscent of Ralph [=McQuarrie=]'s original concept, which featured a brow that made him look very sinister.
** The outfit worn by the young Princess Leia is taken from unused concept art [=McQuarrie=] did of Leia for ''A New Hope''.
** The Lasat term for the Force, "The Ashla", was the proper name for the Light Side of the Force that George Lucas created for early script drafts. The Dark Side on the other hand was referred to as the Bogan, which the Bendu brings in Season 3.
** Ahsoka states "There is always a bit of truth in legends", referencing the formerly ExiledFromContinuity elements in the ''Legends'' continuity.
** The Bendu's name is a reference to Lucas's idea of the Jedi-Bendu, who became the Jedi in the final product.
** The Imperial Security droids in "The Wynkahthu Job" bear a strong resemblence to the Phase-II Dark Troopers from Videogame/DarkForces.
** Kanan using the Force to launch a missile back into the imperial walker that fired it is a reference to ''[[VideoGame/TheForceUnleashed The Force Unleashed II]]''. The fact that he resembles Rahm Kota while doing it is a bonus.
** The mid-season trailer for Season 3 has [[spoiler:Maul confronting Obi-Wan Kenobi on Tatooine, like he did in the ''Old Wounds'' comic]].
** The code word to shut down the droids Thrawn spars with is "Rukh", the name of his Noghri bodyguard in the ''Legends'' continuity. He'd later appear in Season 4.

** In "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS7E3AFlurryOfEmotions A Flurry of Emotions]]", the fairy tale Twilight reads to the sick foals, ''Gusty the Great'', is about the heroic unicorn Gusty and her encounter with the treacherous Grogar. Gusty was one of the main characters of the original ''My Little Pony'' cartoon, and Grogar a major villain from the same show.
