** There's a sketch where a man's siblings stage an intervention because he goes out of his way to behave as a walking Italian-American caricature. When he finally stops doing it he instead switches to an annoyingly high-pitched voice, claiming it's his normal one.

* TypeCasting: Poked fun at in-universe. Creator/RobertEnglund played Freddy Krueger in all of the original ''Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet'' films and ''Film/FreddyVsJason''. Apart from all the makeup it requires, he does enjoy the role. The whole "typecasting" thing was lovingly mocked on ''[=MADtv=]'' early in that show's run, when Englund did a guest spot for a HalloweenEpisode. During his appearance, everyone kept describing Englund, as his big claim to fame, his other famous genre role of "Willie", the comic relief alien from the original ''Series/{{V}}'' mini-series. Englund responds quite angrily, pointing out to each cast member who calls him "Willie", that he played Freddy Krueger in the ''Nightmare on Elm Street'' films. But everyone keeps referring to him as "The guy who played Willie on ''V''" instead of "the ''Nightmare On Elm Street'' guy", much to his dismay and anger.

** Around the TurnOfTheMillennium, ''[=MADtv=]'' started making ''Series/ThePriceIsRight'' parodies. By this time, Bob Barker had been hosting the show for over 30 years, so they decided to parody what the show would have been like in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W7To54TBBlE the 1970s]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jL_sIKL22I0 the 1980s]], if it were [[UnintentionalPeriodPiece filled to the brim with topical references]] and invoked [[FunnyAneurysmMoment Funny Aneurysm Moments]] (particularly seen in the 1980s version, with Josh Meyers as a yet-unknown Jeffrey Dahmer, Stephnie Weir as Martha Stewart dropping hints that she would later get in trouble for harboring inside information, and Nicole Parker as Tonya Harding before she got into figure skating). In reality, of course, ''Series/ThePriceIsRight'' changed so little during Barker's lengthy tenure that the most visible change in 35+ years was his hair colour (from brown to white).

Not only that, but Rod Roddy (Artie Lange) is depicted as having announced during the 70s; in actuality, Johnny Olson was the original announcer and remained until his death in 1985; a rotation of guest announcers ensued until Roddy (then known at that point as the announcer from ''Series/{{Soap}}'' and ''Series/PressYourLuck'') was picked in 1986.
