** There was a similar one done with ''Film/TheSoundOfMusic''. In the first ending [[TheHeroDies the von Trapp family were shot and killed by the Nazis]] (which the audience was appaled by, [[InfantImmortality especially the children's deaths]]), in the second [[FaceHeelTurn the Von Trapps join the Nazis]] (this ending was popular only [[AllGermansAreNazis in Germany]], [[ArgentinaIsNaziland Argentina]], and parts of the US midwest), and in the last one the kids fight back with ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}''-style superpowers.

* SubvertedKidsShow: ''CLOPS'' (where cartoon characters and childhood figures are arrested for various crimes), ''The Power-Slut Girls'' (a Powerpuff Girls parody featuring Tara Reid, Creator/BrittanyMurphy, and Creator/ParisHilton as crimefighting media whores -- now a FunnyAneurysmMoment due to Brittany Murphy's death), the parodies of the Rankin-Bass Christmas specials (''Rudolph The Rednosed Reindeer'' and ''Santa Claus is Coming to Town'') that always seem to be crossed with violent Mafia films, like ''Film/TheGodfather'' and ''Film/{{Scarface|1983}}'' (the 1983 version with Al Pacino), ''Dennis The Menace To Society'', the one-shot sketch ''The Ring-A-Rounds'' (a ''Wiggles'' parody that put a happy spin on such topics as divorce, post-partum depression, living with alcoholic parents, foster care, and childhood obesity) and the ''Series/SesameStreet'' parodies they did during the last few years of the show that dealt with such kid-unfriendly topics as avian flu, childhood obesity, plastic surgery, America's economic decline, sexual predators on the Internet, and Donald Trump's greed (which was in fact targeted in ''Sesame'''s 25th anniversary special with parody character Ronald Grump).

** Their Disney Princess sketch starts off like your standard Disney song, but then it's revealed that she's in South Central LA, running into bums, tranny hookers, and gangbangers, before going to a movie set to shoot "Snow White and the Seven Positions".

* DrJerk: Series/DrPhil is parodied to be this in every sketch where he shows up (or just [[Series/TheOprahWinfreyShow Oprah]]'s lapdog if she's also present). His "advice" usually consists of insulting people or punching them in the face. Also, he's not really a doctor.

* DoubleEntendre: In a ''Series/{{Chips}}'' spoof featuring several cast members from ''Series/That70sShow'', Creator/MilaKunis as DaChief does a marvelous one:
-->Things are gonna be different now that I'm in charge. Cause I'm really hands-on. I'm gonna be on top of you non-stop. I'm gonna be riding you so hard you'll be begging for mercy. There's no pulling out. I'm gonna work you all night long. You will wanna explode. But I won't let you quit until I'm satisfied!

*** ''Funkenstein'' parodies black remakes of monster movies like ''Film/{{Blacula}}'' and stars [[Film/{{Frankenstein}} Funkenstein]] and his maker, Dr. Funkenstein, who encounter black parodies of the Franchise/UniversalHorror monsters, like [[Film/TheInvisibleMan the Invisible Man]] and werewolf hookers.

* BlackIsBiggerInBed: Parodied in the "Flashlight" sketch, where two white guys whose car break down try to get a flashlight to work that requires shaking it for a while in a [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything very masturbatory fashion]]. When they're interrupted by two cops (one black, one asian) who think they just ran into a bunch of gays trying to get their groove on, the black cop whips out an enormous flashlight that impresses the two white guys. In what can be considered the inverse ethnic stereotype, the asian cop then presents a recharchable penlight.

** 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.
