Does this only apply to events outside the series making something funny, or events inside the series? The description seems to be saying that only outside influences apply. If that is the case, where do the in-universe examples go? I'm asking this question because I'd rather not end up in an edit war with somebody over whether or not Fred and George's prank in the Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone counts.

I'm removing My Little Pony from this page. It's Western Animation, it doesn't need it's own separate category.

I've added back the link. It is indeed Western Animation, but the MLP subpage has been made, so it has to be listed here (or on that page, but I think it's easier to put it here) to index it. Many large tropes have subpages for a single work.

Is this trope really for things that become funnier because of events within or outside the series? Shouldn't those be two separate tropes?

Hilarious at hindsight is not different to Fridge Brilliance so it is really necessary?.

It seems very different to me. Fridge Brilliance is about a viewer working something out in his own mind. This trope is about the interplay between events the series.
