** An early sketch on how a historically-white country club would be like with new black members would pretty much repeat itself with the 2007 film ''Who's Your Caddy?''.

* TheWeirdAlEffect: In several instances, particularly with their music video parodies, like Crystal Waters' "Gypsy Woman" (remade into "My Songs Are Mindless" with Kim Wayans) or Snow's "Informer" (remade into "Imposter" with Creator/JimCarrey.)

*** According to Takei it's not. He was upset at Kelvin!Timeline Sulu being revealed as gay after all, as TOS era Sulu is canonically straight. Unless one has the odd view that gay performers can -only- play gay characters, there's nothing much hollow about a fictional character having different desires than his actor.

** "The Dysfunctional Home Show with [[TheAlcoholic Grandpa Jack]]" is eerily similar to Creator/SamAndMickey's interpretation of Barbie, especially their cooking show episodes. In both, the title character is [[AbusiveParent abusive]] to their more responsible loved one who helps to oversee the show to make sure they don't screw it up, both of their spouses left them due to their behavior, they burned the meal they were trying to prepare and even at one point, concerned witnesses rush on-camera to stop them from engaging in a dangerous act (drunk driving and knife-juggling, respectively.)

** Related to the above, one sketch is of ''The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'' and with Sinead O'Connor being a guest. Of the pictures that she ripped up, she refused to do it to a picture of Arsenio Hall, saying that she loves him. Nowadays in real life, both of them hate one another, so much that days after Prince's death O'Connor publicly accused Hall of regularly supplying him with drugs and he in turn sued her for millions on the grounds of defamation.



** In Snow's "Informer" video spoof, "Imposter", we can see Carrey wearing a button-down shirt with a large question mark on it. [[Film/BatmanForever This won't be the last time we see him sporting a fashion with question marks...]]

** For those who don't know already, there was a time when JimCarrey (who was credited as his real name "James Carrey" for most of his tenure) was the crazy white guy on ''In Living Color'' -- and that Jamie Foxx was on this show from season three to the end.

** Considering that ''Series/TheGoldenGirls'' has a large gay following, it's funny to hear gay film critics Blaine and Antoine trash the show in one sketch.



** Marlon Wayans was also on this show as a feature player, but only for season three.

* ValuesResonance: While many of the segments tend to [[ValuesDissonance invert]] this trope, the topics about race relations (specifically the ones featured in the "Why?" segments, i.e., why do newscasters put accented emphasis on foreign-sounding names of minorities but not Caucasians, why even the simplest of products advertised by minorities have to include rapping, etc.) still have prevalence to this day.
