** When [[Series/DoctorWho the TARDIS and the Doctor]] show up, he acknowledges that he's never seen the show, but feels he's absorbed enough information about it through [[PopCulturalOsmosis nerd osmosis]]. Being a companion isn't as fun as he expected it to be. He wasn't impressed with the TARDIS being BiggerOnTheInside because [[ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}} Snoopy]] did it first with his dog house. He thinks that the locations that they travel to are sound stages, and solves the problem of the Doctor's greatest enemy by effortlessly knocking over a Dalek.

* Sometimes this is just generally played for laughs. A good example is when a museum in the DC Universe is showing off a priceless diamond, and the curator says, "All right, we all know what's coming, so let's try to get through a round of h'ors d'eurves before the first ice-themed supervillain shows up."

A StopMotion series on Creator/AdultSwim, from Williams Street Productions. Created by Creator/SethGreen (the voice of Chris on ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', Oz from ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' and Dr. Evil's son from ''Film/AustinPowers'') and Matt Senreich (editor of ''Toyfare'', a magazine for action figure collectors), the show features a rapid-fire series of stop-motion shorts (inspired by Toyfare's ''ComicStrip/TwistedToyfareTheatre'' comics), ranging in length from a few seconds to several minutes long. The comedy in these shorts tends to vary wildly between BlackComedy, pop-culture parody and satire, out-and-out surrealism, or some combination of the three.

%%* * HelpHelpTrappedInTitleFactory: [[spoiler:Poor Maurice.]] Half of the Season 4 episode titles make up a note from a man named Maurice who is trapped in a DVD factory. The other half is a response from the factory claiming that Maurice was trying to unionize the factory.
* HiddenDepths: For all Munson's mocking of the nerds, he's honestly as nerdy as they are: he knows enough about RPG mechanics to accurately fill out a character sheet, and he's actually farther along in ''Series/TheWalkingDead'' than The Nerd is.

** The "Cheese League" skit has an intro for a super spy team of mice apparently at war with a faction of evil mice, GI Joe style, only for the whole team to be promptly massacred by a small (and entirely mundane) cat.
