** The first episode to feature "Sideshow" Cecil Terwilliger was aptly named "Brother From Another Series". In one bit, Bart has covered Cecil's eyes to surprise him, and pulls the standard "Guess who?" gag, to which Cecil replies, "[[TheUnseen Maris?]]" ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' blandly lampshades this with a Frasier-esque title card reading "Frasier is a Hit Show on the NBC Network." Taken even further in "Funeral for a Fiend", which introduces Bob and Cecil's father Robert, played by...John Mahoney.

* YouLookFamiliar: Creator/PiperLaurie guested twice as different characters, though her first appearance was voice-only, as a caller to KACL, precluding her from 'looking' familiar to the audience. Interestingly, both characters she plays are domineering mothers (probable TypeCasting or ActorAllusion after her career-defining performance in ''Film/{{Carrie}}''), and could conceivably be one and the same character (having a 22-year-old daughter in 1994 and a (different) late-40s daughter in 1999 is not outside the realms of possibility), though this is not suggested during her latter-day appearance.

** In one episode Frasier and Niles try to help a former Shakespearian actor Jackson Hedley revive his theatrical career by producing him in a one man version of ''Theatre/{{Hamlet}}'', but [[spoiler:they realize to their horror that he's actually a terrible actor, who does a laughably overwrought performance of the play]]. The gag is that Hedley is played by Creator/DerekJacobi, an acclaimed Shakespearian actor, whose previous roles include Hamlet in Creator/TheBBC's ''Complete Dramatic Works of William Shakespeare'' series.
