** Speaking of ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'', one of the earliest Homestar toons ("Marshmallow's Last Stand") featured a snipet of the theme fom ''The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly''. When the toon was released on DVD, the audio was changed for legal reasons. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] by Matt Chapman (as Homestar) in the commentary when he tells Mike Chapman "don't listen to this part, we're gonna change it." when the original audio can be head in the backound.
*** [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] somewhat in the cartoon "On Break", in which Mike and Matt perform an a-capella rendition of "Yakety Sax" that ends somewhat differently from the original song. Afterwards, one of them asks, "Does it end different?"
** Another would be WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation, which originally featured segments of various "appropriate" songs during the opening and closing credits. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] at the start of the first episode with the new theme music.

* Used regularly on ''WebAnimation/HowItShouldHaveEnded'' to imitate the themes of the movies they're parodying, featuring "The Stuff" ([[TransformersTheMovie "The Touch"]]), and the Terminator beat with an extra note.

* The song in ''WebAnimation/CharlieTheUnicorn 3'' is a knock-off of "Under The Sea" from ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'', but with a middle-eight based on the "[[{{Pokemon}} Pokérap]]".

* In the ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama'' story, ''[[Fanfic/LegacyTotalDrama Legacy]]'', Trent tweaks an obscure Creator/GilbertAndSullivan song [[note]]"[[http://math.boisestate.edu/gas/utopia/webop/ul021.html A Wonderful Joy Our Eyes To Bless]]" from ''Theatre/UtopiaLimited''[[/note]] for his tribute song, albeit not to get around copyright because the song was already in the public domain. He writes his own verses but makes only minor changes to the refrain and the tune.

* The theme to ''Theatre/AvenueQ'', despite being a ''Series/SesameStreet'' parody, sounds more like the one to ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', a sitcom parody. It also sounds similar to the theme song to fellow PBS show ''[[WesternAnimation/NoddysToylandAdventures The Noddy Shop]]''.

Added DiffLines:

*** The main riff of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dcD1q_fU9tk "Tempest"]] is suspiciously similar to the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JbJbYFyklTg Hyrule Castle]] theme from the ''Franchise/LegendOfZelda'' series.
*** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uT59_TkasU8 "Whisper"]] is similar to [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t97u9qmgwN0 "A Walk in the Woods"]] from ''VideoGame/HaloCombatEvolved''.

* The final refrain of "Letting Go"("not letting go, not letting go, never letting go, never letting go... of you") from ''Vanities: The Musical'' resembles the ending of "Friend Like Me" from ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}''. The verse and pre-chorus of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pPqYpwHRDkg Hey There, Beautiful]] are an alteration of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eJEE78PUNsQ&feature=fvst Mr. Blue Sky]] by Electric Light Orchestra, although the latter has a longer verse melody.

* MitchBenn's songs on ''Radio/TheNowShow'' are generally to tunes that ''sound like'' the songs he's parodying, since the UK doesn't have a "fair use" exception for parodies.
