Added DiffLines:

* Canonically, the theme of ''WesternAnimation/Steven Universe'' is a song written by Steven about the Gems. This is shown both in the pilot and in the footage accompanying the extended theme song.
** The song is also sampled in several of the background pieces, such as 'Fight, Flight, or Love', 'Steven's Shield', and 'Dad Museum'.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' episode "Bart Gets Famous", Bart comes downstairs whistling the ''Simpsons'' theme song only to be reprimanded by Marge for whistling "that annoying tune." (This is the first of many self-referential jokes within this episode.)

* In "I Want to be Tall" on ''Literature/LittlePrincess'', Little Princess sings to the theme tune that she's a big princess when faking being tall. In "I Want My Plaster," the "brave song" is the theme tune sung on "la." In another installment, the Queen is playing an instrumental of the theme on a radio while taking a bath. (With the radio on the edge of the bathtub no less, which really isn't advisable.)

* Season 5 of {{The Real Ghostbusters}} does this quite a bit, mostly characters humming the tune but in episode 14 Ray sings the opening lyrics.

** "Take My Siblings, Please" has Wakko playing with this trope while singing to himself: "''[[TinyToonAdventures We're tiny, we're toony, we're all a little looney...]]'' Nah, I'm tired of that one. ''It's time for Animaniacs!''"
** And ''another'' episode featured Beethoven attempting to compose his fifth symphony. Songs he tries and rejects include the themes of ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'', ''TinyToonAdventures'', and ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}''. Apparently the writers liked this gag.

* Done as a deliberate [[BreakingTheFourthWall fourth-wall breaker]] on ''SamuraiJack'', where a boy whose family Jack stays with overnight expresses his admiration for the famous roving hero by singing a line from the show's theme song.

** Hardhead sings the ending theme at a karaoke party in the ''TransformersHeadmasters'' episode "The Shadow Emperor, Scorponok".
** Kakuryu sings a bit of the end theme to ''TransformersVictory'' in an early episode. Considering the theme tune sings about driving villains away, and [[spoiler:The Dinoforce eventually turns against Deathsaurus]], this qualifies as {{foreshadowing}}.
