* 1949 WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes cartoon ''WesternAnimation/AHamInARole'' features a cartoon dog who works for Looney Tunes but really wants to do Shakespeare. The dog even has a portrait of Shakespeare on his wall! Over the course of the cartoon the dog recites from ''Theatre/{{Hamlet}}'', ''Theatre/RomeoAndJuliet'', ''Theatre/RichardIII'', and ''Theatre/JuliusCaesar''.



* ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom''[='=]s Mr. Lancer's underwear could count as a shout out cause it's covered in little Shakespeare heads.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/Borderlands2'', Psychos have a random chance of reciting the "too solid flesh" soliloquy in its entirety if you let them. Appropriate, since Psychos love to scream about meat and flesh in general, plus the soliloquy contains the word "Hyperion", the name of the MegaCorp whose CEO is the game's BigBad.

* Literature/VorkosiganSaga: Miles Vorkosigan frequently quotes from Shakespeare, especially but not exclusively ''Theatre/RichardIII'' -- like Shakespeare's Richard, Miles is a physically deformed smooth talker with a possible but dubious claim on the throne (although a good guy).
** In ''Brothers In Arms'', he memorably recites the entire text of ''Theatre/RichardIII'' as a side effect of being hit with a TruthSerum.
** When his future wife, Ekaterin, is questioned if Miles had a role in her husband's death, he mentally quotes "Was any woman in this manner wooed...", referencing Richard's famous ComfortingTheWidow scene (I.ii). This becomes something of a FunnyAneurysmMoment when Miles' political enemies help make it a widespread rumor that Miles killed Ekaterin's husband.
** He pretends to be rehearsing a snippet from the same scene in ''The Warrior's Apprentice'', as a hastily improvised excuse for being unchaperoned with [[ChildhoodFriendRomance Unlucky Childhood Friend]] Elena.
** At one point, he needs to write Ekaterin a letter of apology. After going through several drafts, he tries one in poetry, but grumbles, "[[Theatre/MuchAdoAboutNothing I was not born under a rhyming planet.]]"
** He has a {{conversation|alTroping}} with Ekaterin's son Nikki about ''Theatre/{{Hamlet}}'', because Nikki is worried that Miles might have killed his father and that he'll have to get revenge. Miles points out that "Nobody expects you to carry out a really good revenge till you're at least old enough to shave," so, since Nikki is eleven, even if Miles did kill his father he doesn't have to worry about revenge for several more years.
** Cordelia and Mark have a conversation in ''Mirror Dance'' that heavily references ''Theatre/TheTempest'', with Mark comparing himself to Caliban.

*** In Chapter 4, if the player has Guybrush use one of the severed legs on the altar without dipping it in sugar water, he will quote a few lines in a spoof of "Alas, poor Yorick" from ''Hamlet'' (V.i) (this is done in the PS3 version in order to net the player a "Guybrush Goes Classy" silver trophy).
*** Speaking of PS3 trophies, there are a few trophies that are shout-outs too ("What's in a Name?" from the balcony scene of ''Theatre/RomeoAndJuliet'' (II.ii), and "Adieu, Adieu..." which is a reference to Hamlet's father's written line, "Adieu, adieu, remember me," from ''Hamlet'' (I.v)).
