  • In Homestuck, the Captor lusus is a "Bicyclops". To further cement the reference, their blood color is yellow.

  • Futurama: Bender's Game features a parody of the movie with the Planet Express ship getting more "submarine-shaped".
  • One episode of The Simpsons also parodies this movie (a dream sequence Lisa has under laughing gas). The same erpisode has a shot of part of Mr. Burns' mansion — a ridiculously long corridor studded with doors on both sides.
  • The Batman: The Animated Series episode "What Is Reality?" features a hallway of Scooby-Dooby Doors like this film — in which one door opened by John precipitates a train roaring outward; likewise, when Batman opens a door labeled "Crazy Intent", a loco-motive roars out.
  • The Powerpuff Girls episode "Meet the Beat-Alls" has two brief appearances by the Fab Four themselves: one with the character designs from this film, the other with the designs from their 1965 series. Sergeant Pepper from the Townsville police is based on Old Fred.
  • The Super Jail episode "Don't Be A Negaton" features a shared hallucination that begins with visuals similar to the ones in the film (referenced with the Twins riding a Submarine-like thing) and then becomes something MUCH worse.
  • The Teen Titans episodes featuring "Mad Mod", especially the second of the two, "Revolution", employ visuals that are a large-scale homage to this film.
  • The Danger Mouse episode "The Dream Machine" has DM and Penfold inside Baron Greenback's dream cloud which has a series of doors with strange things emerging from them.
  • The end credits sequence from Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs is an homage to the film.
  • In the first episode of the South Park "Imaginationland" trilogy, when the boys first go to Imaginationland, one of the imaginary creatures to greet them is a Blue Meanie.
