Added DiffLines:

* UrExample: This show is basically a prototypical example of TheAbridgedSeries, as it splices parts of ''WesternAnimation/SeaLab2020'' with a GagDub, exaggerating the characters' personalities and generally parodying the original, although it was produced with the permission of the owners of the original show.

'''''Sealab 2021''''' is one of the first Creator/AdultSwim original shows, which parodies the 1970s animated series ''WesternAnimation/{{Sealab 2020}}'' (and, to a lesser extent, the entire genre of [[LimitedAnimation crudely-animated]] [[TheSixties 60s]] and [[TheSeventies 70s]] cartoons produced by Creator/HannaBarbera) through combining recycled footage and animations with a GagDub. The show lasted from November 2000 to April 2005 with a total of fifty-two 15-minute-long episodes over four seasons.

* ForeignerForADay: In the episode "Let 'Em Eat Corn", Capt. Shanks has Sealab declared a sovereign nation (to get out of paying income taxes), which sets off a wave of increasingly goofy sub-secessions amongst the crew. By the end of the cartoon, even Stormy's furniture and bathroom fixtures (which he claims are robots known as "Change-A-Trons" and "Plumb-bots") have declared their independence.

* InMediasRes: Many episodes. Lampshaded in the late series episode "Shrabster", which plays out like the movie Film/{{Memento}}, with the announcer from SuperFriends cutting in frequently with "Earlier...!"

* TakeThat: A brief one toward Series/StargateSG1, when Quinn suggests that having your only black character be a primitive alien outsider who carries a "space spear" is racist.

Added DiffLines:

** This was particularly mean-spirited because the episode aired right when Creator/AdultSwim was axing anime left and right to make room for original programming.
