* AccidentallyAccurate: They once did a parody of ''ComicStrip/{{Cathy}}'' called ''Amy!'', which depicted Music/AmyWinehouse hiding drugs in her beehive hairdo. Then someone filmed her pulling a vial of cocaine from her hair, and suddenly it's like, "They knew!".



* AccidentallyAccurate: In their WesternAnimation/ThomasTheTankEngine and Unstoppable parody, Thomas is depicted as having both ends of his running plate dipped, not just the front. While it was done in order to not infringe on the character's image, [[https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/a/a5/LB%26SCR_E2_class.jpg this is actually how a real life Billington E2 tank engine's running plate is built.]]

* OutlivedItsCreator: Bill Gaines passed away in 1992, but the magazine is still in business. (He's still credited as the "founder" among "The Usual Gang of Idiots".) Also, ''ComicBook/SpyVersusSpy'' creator Antonio Prohías retired in 1987 and died in 1998, but his strip still appears in the magazine, originally written by Don "Duck" Edwing and drawn by such artists as Bob Clarke, George Woodbridge and Dave Manak; currently, the strip is scripted and drawn by Peter Kuper.

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: ''{{Literature/Twilight}}'', ''Series/JerseyShore'', along with [[BitingTheHandHumor some of CN's own series]] are made fun of, especially the first in the series' early episode. These date the series fairly specifically to the early 2010s.

* OneOfUs: With constant references to Internet memes, VideoGames, and cartoons from the 1980s and 1990s abound, it's VERY easy to assume that the writers are this.

** Also present in the ''Franchise/StarWars'' parodies. Dick [=DeBartolo=] and Nick Meglin co-wrote the ''Film/ANewHope'' parody, with Harry North as the artist; the next four had just [=DeBartolo=] writing and Mort Drucker drawing. Inexplicably, the last one switched to David Shayne for the writing and Hermann Mejia for the art.

Added DiffLines:

* ExecutiveMeddling: Mike Snider revealed in his now-defunct blog that his first approved piece for the magazine, a parody of "A More Humane Mikado", was greatly altered by the editors, who felt that ''Theatre/TheMikado'' would be too unfamiliar to readers. As a result, the parody barely scanned to the song at all.

* BannedInChina: One page containing a strip mocking the British royal family had to be ripped from 25,000 copies manually before that issue could be sold in the UK. Though they have relaxed their attitude on such things since then.
