* HeyItsThatVoice: They actually got a fair number of the original voice actors to parody their own roles, such as the cast of ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'' or getting Creator/MarkHamill to do SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker and (in one sketch) [[Franchise/StarWars Luke Skywalker]].
** Who would've expected UsefulNotes/AbrahamLincoln to be voiced by [[Wrestling/HulkHogan HULK HOGAN]]??
** Creator/KellyHu does a lot of the voices.
** As does [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Sarah Michelle Gellar]]. One of those times ''was'' voicing Buffy and herself, admittedly...
** Creator/SethMacFarlane, Creator/MilaKunis and Alex Borstein, Seth Green's castmates from ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' did several voice roles on the show.
** If Broadway fans listen closely every once in a while, they may hear the voice of Eden Espinosa, known for starring as Elphaba in ''Theatre/{{Wicked}}''.
** Donald Faison of ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'' fame is known to provide many voices for the show. Including Stormtroopers and Nick Furry.
** ''Series/{{Community}}'''s Donald Glover is Mace Windu ''and'' a Stormtrooper in the third Star Wars special.
** Zac Efron voiced a couple of characters, like a deranged Music/BillyJoel.
** Creator/FrankWelker and Creator/CreeSummer both returned to their roles as [[WesternAnimation/InspectorGadget Dr. Claw and Penny Gadget]], respectively, in "Cyberdyne". Welker also voiced every instance of [[Franchise/{{Transformers}} Megatron and Soundwave]].
** Appropriately enough for a FriendToAllLivingThings, Creator/HaydenPanettiere voiced a cat (namely [[WesternAnimation/ThunderCats Cheetara]]).
** Creator/ScarlettJohansson voiced a number of characters.
** Creator/RachaelLeighCook does a few as well, most notably [[Franchise/MastersOfTheUniverse Evil Lyn]].
** Creator/DanielRadcliffe voiced Thomas the Tank Engine in one episode.
** Larisa Oleynik returned as [[Series/TheSecretWorldOfAlexMack Alex Mack]].
** Bitch Puddin' is Creator/KateeSackhoff, who also reprises [[Series/BattlestarGalactica2003 Starbuck]] in a few sketches.
** Yes, that is Creator/MichaelChiklis and Creator/ChrisEvans reprising their roles from ''Film/TheFantasticFour'' (and ''Series/TheShield'') in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yp6ugLTzRLE this sketch.]]

* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: A season 1 episode featured a ''Film/{{Scarface}}'' parody involving cereal mascots. The sketch in question was suddenly replaced for unknown reasons, and the original episode with said sketch hasn't re-aired since, nor does it appear on DVD or on Adult Swim's website.

Added DiffLines:

* CastingGag: Many, many voices are brought on just for the gag. For example, Creator/CreeSummer voicing Penny in an ''WesternAnimation/InspectorGadget'' parody, Soleil Moon-Frye voicing Series/PunkyBrewster in "No Need for Glomer", Dana Snyder portrays [[WesternAnimation/AquaTeenHungerForce Master Shake]] as a critic of the Robot Chicken show, and the late Robert Culp reviving his character Bill Maxwell for a ''Series/TheGreatestAmericanHero'' parody.
-->'''Master Shake:''' People watch this. On TV!
** And one of the greatest--''Creator/MarkHamill'' coming on to do SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker for "[[VideoGame/BatmanArkhamAsylum The Arkham]] [[Film/TheShawshankRedemption Redemption]]".
** Joining in on that greatness is ''Creator/PatrickStewart'' reprising the role of Gurney Halleck from ''Film/{{Dune}}'', noting how much more awesome and practical riding [[JustForPun Dune]] Buggies are compared to the spice worms. This is actually a double Casting Gag, since it's likely also a reference to the infamous dune buggy scene in ''Film/StarTrekNemesis''.
** A sketch about a musical starring Franchise/TheAvengers has none other than ''Avengers'' co-creator Creator/StanLee lend his voice and likeness to the piano player.

*** "Bad Boy Meets Damaged Chick with Daddy Issues" makes reference to "Film/HerbieFullyLoaded" starring Lindsay Lohan and Breckin Meyer. Guess who voices Lohan in the sketch?
