* HilariousInHindsight: "[[Series/{{House}} Dr.]] {{M|ickeyMouse}}ouse", as a sketch, may or may not have originated as a parody - namely, [[http://tvblog.girlpower.it/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/dottmouse.JPG a 2009 storyline]] on ''Topolino'', that is, the Italian Mickey Mouse magazine parodying the ''Series/{{House}}'' TV series. Which, ''in turn'', got its inspiration from [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r3YF8w9ilmY a commercial]], still from Italy, which celebrated the fact TV network ''Mediaset'' would start airing both franchises. Hell, even the cover you can see on the first link alludes to that commercial.

** In ''Diary of a Wimpy Kid Icarus'', Pit and Kirby fight Mega Man, Sonic, Pikachu, and Donkey Kong in a fight obviously based on ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros''. Only Mega Man wasn't in the game and six players couldn't fight at once. Until the fourth entry, when it became possible.

** [[WesternAnimation/ToyStory Buzz Lightyear]] in the beginning of "The Buzz Identity" says that while Creator/{{Pixar}} moves are sad in the middle ([[WesternAnimation/{{Up}} and sometimes in the beginning]]), they're never sad in the end. Then came ''WesternAnimation/InsideOut'', where one of the biggest {{Tearjerker}} moments happened near the end of the film.

** A 2002 issue showcased wedding photos that were fated to be left out of the album. The first one is "another would-be photographer who doesn't realize that cameras held at arm's length do not make for good self-portraits."

** The skit "Money Ball Z" is about Franchise/DragonBall characters playing baseball. Come Anime/DragonBallSuper, there's an episode where the gang attempts to play baseball and comically failing at it.



* SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome: During a company-wide vacation to the Dominican Republic, Bill Gaines discovered that there was only one subscriber in the entire country, and his subscription was going to expire that month. The entire Mad staff - artists, writers, editors, and Gaines himself piled into a bus and drove out to his house. Gaines knocked on the subscriber's door, and with the entire staff of the magazine looking on, presented him with a renewal notice.



** Al Jaffee loves grossout gags as well, although he hasn't done very many of late. He still has an affinity for grossly overweight women, though.

* HarsherInHindsight: One of Mad's predicted headlines of 1962 was Creator/MarilynMonroe checking into the hospital for a minor ailment, as a WorstNewsJudgmentEver joke. In RealLife, her death was one of the biggest stories of that year.

** "When WesternAnimation/BeavisAndButtHead Grow Old" from 1995 had a joke about Music/MichaelJackson and Lisa Marie Presley celebrating their 50th anniversary together, with Jackson having not been seen in public since his face exploded onstage in 2018, along with Tito having 28 multi-platinum albums.

** And ''boy'' did they get it when they put out [[https://www.google.com/search?q=Mad+Magazine+Mario+cover&biw=1667&bih=821&tbm=isch&imgil=SXM2g9RrFqW8PM%253A%253BiZKOPC7AZ89PoM%253Bhttp%25253A%25252F%25252Fsydlexia.com%25252Fmad_magazine_292.htm&source=iu&pf=m&fir=SXM2g9RrFqW8PM%253A%252CiZKOPC7AZ89PoM%252C_&usg=__81hRPvmI8DvoHoSeIdi1Ieb7AT4%3D&ved=0ahUKEwiGoMud7KrRAhVLRCYKHXgtBMYQyjcIKw&ei=jCZuWIaqFMuImQH42pCwDA#imgrc=SXM2g9RrFqW8PM%3A issue #292]]. They actually put a list on their letters page three months later (in small print, taking up a quarter page) of readers who wrote in to tell them that Luigi should have an L on his hat!

* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: Much like most of Cartoon Network's past and present offerings, this show is packed to the brim with a lot of GettingCrapPastTheRadar moments that confirm that Cartoon Network's censors are either really bad at their job or this is all a part of CartoonNetwork's plan for more risque programming outside of Creator/AdultSwim.

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: The ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'' parody "How I Met Your Mummy" ends with Werewolf!Ted taking so long to finish his story, the titular mummy walks in to tell the kids how they met. ''How I Met Your Mother'' was in season 7 when this sketch aired, but the series finale eventually revealed why Future Ted's wife didn't do something similar: [[spoiler:She died six years before Ted decided to tell their kids the story of how they met.]]

** Any time [[WesternAnimation/{{Cars}} Lightning McQueen]] has something terrible happen to him is this thanks to (the teaser for) ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars 3}}''.



** There's the music video parody of Music/KatyPerry's "Firework" video (called "Flammable" by Katy Putty). Much like the actual song, the parody song does have lyrics that speak out and give hope to those who are often ostracized or feel like they're not special and need to look to their inner light and let it out. The parody (like most good parodies) takes this a bit too far with [[spoiler: the fireworks causing the clay man, the stock paper woman, and the puppet man to catch fire. While the puppet is just singed [he is saved by a man with a fire extinguisher. He is shown running around on fire at the very end though.], the stock paper woman is screaming as most of her is now blackened ash, and the clay man's head melts and falls off his neck as Katy Putty [who inexplicably survives] is carted off by a police officer for arson and murder -- [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking but not jaywalking]].]]
*** [[DownerEnding It's also the last skit of the episode.]]
*** [[HeAlsoDid Not to mention the]] [[FromBadToWorse last]] [[TearJerker of]] [[UpToEleven the]] [[CrossesTheLineTwice first season.]]
