* The trailer to the late 1990s canceled AllCGICartoon film ''Blue Planet'' features one at Creator/{{Pixar}}. It starts with parodies of Buzz from ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'' and Flik from ''WesternAnimation/ABugsLife''. They talk about how the film is a happy family friendly story before they both get graphically stomped on by the films protagonist. It's complete with a ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' ShoutOut: "Oh my god, you killed Lenny. You bastard!"

* A take-that to Brooklyn from the film ''Film/TheMadMissManton'': --->'''Lt. Mike Brent''': Look, lady, it's been ten minutes since you called us. The murderer, that is if there is a murderer, could be in Brooklyn by now - that is, if anybody wants to be in in Brooklyn.

* It is believed by some fans that the villain of ''WesternAnimation/{{Up}}'', Charles Muntz, is a jab at Charles ''Mintz'', the man who took the rights to WesternAnimation/OswaldTheLuckyRabbit away from Creator/WaltDisney, in addition to his animation team, forcing him to start over with his own company and create WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse. However, This has actually been {{Jossed}} by Pixar staff, who claim that it was just a coincidence.
