Added DiffLines:

* The ''WesternAnimation/VeggieTales'' song "We're Vikings!" sounds very similar to "A Pirate's Life For Me'' from Pirates of the Carribean. It even contains the line "A viking's life for me!" at the end of each verse.

Added DiffLines:

** The episode "Ugh", during a parody of ''Film/2001ASpaceOdyssey'''s uplifting sequence uses music that sounds frustratingly similar to, but ''just'' different enough from, "Music/AlsoSprachZarathustra".

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' does some almost indistinguishable please-don't-sue-us versions of songs like "Happy Birthday To You" and "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town" - the latter has to be listened to very, very closely. The excuse in the director's commentary was 'we thought it'd be alright because the songs would have changed over the years'.

** The song Sonic, Tails & Knuckles perform in Battle Of The Boy Bands sounds a bit like Can't Stop by The RedHotChiliPeppers.

* ''{{Histeria}}'', an educational cartoon about history, parodied a lot of songs with similar, but original, melodies. In the episode on Teddy Roosevelt, adapted versions of "Wooly Bully" (as "Bully Bully") and "Ghostbusters" (as "Trustbuster") were both used, altered enough to be free of royalties.
