** Usually Garfield has the last word in the theme song. In one episode, he gives a Take That to ComicStrip/{{Heathcliff}}. In another episode, he says that his show has what he calls "the Garfield Guarantee", which involves a Take That against both [[Franchise/TheSmurfs annoying blue people]] and [[Franchise/{{Transformers}} giant]] [[Anime/Voltron robots]] at the same time. Other versions include "Maybe not as funny as pro wrestling, but a lot more realistic" and "Don't watch NBC. They don't have cartoons anymore."

*** In general, ''Bender's Game'' vacillates between an AffectionateParody of ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'', a mild and still affectionate Take That against some of the more {{egregious}} tropes of the game (such as the very Gygaxian use of multitudes of random-roll tables) and a flat-out Take That against the anti-D&D hysteria of the '80s (with Bender becoming an over-the-top parody of the "steam-tunnel gamer" urban legend -- the gamers who supposedly lost their minds and grip on reality playing D&D).

** The episode "Total Rickall" appears to be one directed at ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' for its constant use of plot-irrelevant {{CutawayGag}}s. The premise it that alien parasites that disguise themselves by creating fake memories in their victims and appearing as people from those memories are in the Smith house. Each time the characters have a fake flashback, a new character is introduced. Rick constantly gets annoyed and at one point interrupts a fake memory.
