** When an Imperial Officer tries to rally his fleet to attack the rebels in retaliation for [[Film/ReturnOfTheJedi blowing up the Death Star and killing Emperor Palpatine]], one of his peers shoots him down, citing that those two events [[InstantWinCondition means the Empire lost and they they all have to throw down their guns and go home]]. While the original ExpandedUniverse already turned this into a case of RealityEnsues, this trope hits even harder now that Film/TheForceAwakens is coming out, where The Empire still exists in some form despite the events of ''Jedi''.

** The writers have managed to overlook the fact that [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Ash's Pikachu]] doesn't live in a Poké Ball ''twice'', first in season 2 and again in season 6.

** One sketch spoofing ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' had Ash wondering what it's like for Pikachu to be inside his pokeball. Except that Pikachu ''never'' goes inside a pokeball because '''he hates being inside it'''. ** Goku carrying a handgun in the Christmas special. Guns of almost any caliber are inane, insane jokes in the DBZ universe. Goku as a kid kicked missiles and rockets back at the ones who launched them. Buu's puppy and the farmer who greeted Raditz in the pilot are about it for gunfire casualties in almost 300 episodes.

Except that Pikachu ''never'' goes inside a pokeball Poké Ball because '''he hates being inside it'''. *** In a much later skit, Ash has Pikachu inside his Poké Ball as he uses it to play tennis with Misty in retaliation for Pikachu urinating on Ash's carpet, and the resulting motion sickness gets Pikachu to throw up. In canon a Poké Ball places the Pokémon in a virtual environment, so the ball being shaken up on the outside would have no effect on the Pokémon inside. ** Goku carrying a handgun in the one Christmas special.skit.

** Palpatine in the Star Wars specials is portrayed as LaughablyEvil, in addition to being a JerkAss and [[SirSwearsALot a huge potty-mouth]]. Also, in the final special, he apparently gets a DeathEqualsRedemption fate (that or RedemptionEqualsDeath). And he was manipulated the entire time by one of his apparent {{Unwitting Pawn}}s; the ''true'' Dark Lord of the Sith... Darth [[spoiler: '''Jar Jar Binks!''']]

** TheBabySittersClub is a cult/monopoly made up of [[AlphaBitch sociopathic Alpha Bitches]]. * BigLippedAlligatorMoment: Technically all of them are this, but skits like J.R.R.Tolkien Jr Jr stands out [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=skMj9vCD2ko see why]]. This is actually invoked in-universe, as the narrator has no idea what he just watched.

** An episode had the Nerd hanging out with [[Series/DoctorWho the Doctor]], and a lot of the jokes revolved around the show being cheap. It seems like the writers of the sketch only watched the Pre-Revival era of the show, but even that is questionable considering the Doctor in the sketch didn't look like any of the ones in the series (the closest resemblance being Peter Capaldi).

** Another example would be in ''TheMuppets / Film/IKnowWhatYouDidLastSummer'' sketch; Fozzie's been stabbed and [[AllPartOfTheShow wanders out on stage]], and JustForFun/StatlerAndWaldorf heckle him and [[ExactWords call him an ambulance.]]
