* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: In-universe; in the ''Cloverfield'' parody, ''Cliffordfield'', [[Series/SesameStreet Big Bird]] screams, "Don't let him get me! I'm a one-of-a-kind children's character!" When Clifford crushes him, Big Bird turns into WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants and groans, "Okay, I see your point," implying that the children of today would probably look at Big Bird as a SpongeBob knock-off, when really it's the other way around.

** ''[[Film/TheSocialNetwork The Social Netjerk]]'' has the LawyerFriendlyCameo of [[RegularShow Mordecai and Rigby]] telling Sean to speed up the sketch as they're on next. At the time, their show was indeed right after Mad.

An animated parody show created by WarnerBros Animation, based on the iconic humor magazine ''Magazine/{{MAD}}''. Much like the magazine, ''Mad'' the TV series presents parodies on anything and everything. Each parody is rendered in a different style of animation, and few of the sketches last for more than a minute. Also, you get animated ''ComicStrip/SpyVsSpy'' and Don Martin shorts. Basically, it's either a less [[CrossesTheLineTwice line-crossing]] version of ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' with a little bit of ''WesternAnimation/KaBlam'' or ''Series/{{MADtv}}'' if it stuck to the source material for longer than three seasons, was 15 minutes long, had more animated sketches than live-action sketches, and didn't feel like a [[AlternateCompanyEquivalent rip-off]] of ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' and ''InLivingColor''.

This show is not to be confused with the FOX sketch show ''Series/{{MADtv}}'', though, according to TheOtherWiki, ''MAD'' is actually the revived and revamped version of ''Series/{{MADtv}}'' promised to show following its 2009 cancellation.
