-->'''Roger Myers, Jr.:''' TV is built on plagiarism! If it wasn't for ''[[Series/TheHoneymooners The Honeymooners]]'', we would have never had ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones''! If someone hadn't made ''[[Series/ThePhilSilversShow Sergeant Bilko]]'', there'd be no ''WesternAnimation/TopCat''! WesternAnimation/HuckleberryHound, [[BreakingTheFourthWall Chief Wiggum]], WesternAnimation/YogiBear? Hah! Andy Griffith, Creator/EdwardGRobinson, Art Carney.

* DeliberateValuesDissonance: The 1919 "Itchy" cartoon, where Itchy attacks an Irishman, in a parody of the older threatrical cartoons that have racist caricatures in them (which also included the Irish, but these days, censors mostly edit the racist caricatures of blacks[[note]]both native Africans and African-Americans[[/note]], Jews, American Indians, Mexicans, and Asians[[note]]mostly Chinese and Japanese stereotypes, but Indians and Arabs are often targeted as well[[/note]]. Caricatures of Pacific Islanders, the Irish, the Scottish, the French, the British, Russians, Australians, Americans, and Italians[[note]]most of the time[[/note]] aren't cause for alarm by the censors unless MediaWatchdog groups specifically say it's offensive).

** Nowadays the idea that Chester Lampwick had created Itchy way back in 1919 and is still alive to this day seems even less likely than it did in 1995.
** In Universe the 1919 "Itchy" cartoon, where Itchy attacks an Irishman, in a parody of the more rampant ethnic stereotypical to downright racist jokes in old cartoons.
* WritingAroundTrademarks: The "Schoolhouse Rock" parody is never identified as such.
