* HarsherInHindsight: In 2004, the show [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k_-Ik98poTg&t=2m8s aired a sketch]] that featured North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Il hosting a talk show with Creator/DonaldTrump as his personal guest. It drew parallels between both men's famous egotism, seemingly suggesting that the reality TV star would get along well with Kim. In 2015, Donald Trump surprised the world by entering politics, and ended up unexpectedly becoming a serious candidate for President of the United States. While on the campaign trail, he ended up attracting widespread criticism for (among other things) proposing a national registry to keep tabs on American Muslims, suggesting fighting Islamic terrorism by targeting and killing terrorists' families, and encouraging his supporters to physically attack protestors at his rallies. It seems that the two men might have even more in common than ''MAD'' thought.

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: One episode from the late 1990s had a ''Series/FullHouse'' parody of a TV movie reunion. The RunningGag was of the Olsen twins obviously changing between shots, with Mary Kate being overweight. This is hard to watch considering she developed an eating disorder as an adult.

**A 1999 sketch featuring Lorraine Swanson on Who Wants to be a Millionaire had a running gag of Regis Philbin (played by Alex Borstein) lamenting about how the show would work better with a time limit. In 2009, the real WWTBAM would introduce a time limit on each question, a format which was abandoned shortly after, as it was derided for adding too much tension to the game.

* ShallowParody: There's a parody of ''Film/TheDarkKnight'' made during the final season where Batman (played by Matt Braunger) couldn't afford good gadgets because of how bad the American economy has become and make it seem like that without gadgets, his villains could easily kick his ass. While it ''is'' funny, any Batman aficionado will tell you that Batman portrayals haven't been especially gadget-heavy since the campy 1960s TV show starring AdamWest, and, while, Batman still has the coolest toys in later incarnations, he relies mainly on his detective work and physical abilities. Though this case of ShallowParody is undercut with some RuleOfFunny, as the sketch more made fun of the fact that the American economy is in the crapper and a lot of once-rich people are trying to be inventive and resourceful in laughably bad ways.
