* Following the success of the ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'' movie, Creator/{{Filmation}} cashed in with ''WesternAnimation/FilmationsGhostbusters'', a cartoon based off its 1970s TV show. Forced to cede trademark, Creator/ColumbiaPictures, which produced the ''Ghostbusters'' movie, retaliated by calling their cartoon ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters''. Except that [[WritingAroundTrademarks they really had to rename it due to a conflict with that previous show]]: ''The Ghost Busters''. It had a totally unrelated plot and was long over, but they still held the rights to the name of the TV show. So they had to rename it, and ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'' sounds like just as good a name as any. It's indirectly justified in show, as one or two episodes explain that the movies were just adaptations of the Ghostbusters' adventures—-hence, the Ghostbusters we're seeing ''are'' the real Ghostbusters.\\

However, when that network closed their animation block months after the second season finished, the executives eventually decided to broadcast it on FOX and there[[/note]].

** "The Grampies" segment, where Uncle Grandpa wins every single award against all the other Cartoon Network stars, is a "take that" to the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards and their practice of giving out awards to ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'' at the expense of all other TV kids cartoons. [[note]]The KCAs are nominally channel-agnostic, and Cartoon Network shows are regularly nominated in their category.[[/note]]

** Another episode centres on sleazy talking head G. Gordon Godfrey and his campaign against the League. One of his interviews was with the writer of a book titles "The Innocent Seduced", which accuses superheroes of causing moral degradation. This is a clear Take That to "Seduction of the Innocent", the scaremongering book which lead to the Comics Code Authority.

** The first episode of Justice League takes a shot at the much-maligned plot of ''Film/SupermanIVTheQuestForPeace'', with Superman systematically destroying the world's store of nuclear weapons... because [[spoiler: he's been tricked by an alien posing as a senator, who is rendering Earth defenceless as a prelude to invasion.]]
