* 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]]''.

* 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.

* One of the remixes done in ''WebAnimation/RWBYChibi'' is "I Burn ([=PleaseDon'tSueUs=] Remix)", which mixes Yang Xiao Long's theme with an approximation of Creator/{{Survivor}}'s "Eye of the Tiger".

* ''[[Series.DeadRingers Dead Ringers]]'' managed to avoid this trope a surprising amount of the time despite being completely based on impressions and parodies, as most of its regular targets were also [[Creator/TheBBC BBC]] productions. They did use Suspiciously Similar theme music for some of their one-off sketches, though, such as when they put one of the BBC's most well-known political interviewers into a superhero story to form [[http://www.clickteam.info/davidn/music/paxman!.mp3 The Continuing Adventures of Paxman]].
