Furthermore, according to the DVD commentary for "Something, Something, Something, Dark Side", they couldn't do the prequels even if they wanted to because there was too much going on in them.[[/note]]

* ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'' has one episode revolving around it. There is a parody of the Darth Vader fight on a catwalk and they even parody "Use the Force" with "Use the soup." Another episode stole the trench run from ''A New Hope'', and another episode had a parody of the Death Star scene in Episode 4. On a gigantic [[IWasToldThereWouldBeCake cake]], no less. The episode's climax was a parody of the Super Star Destroyer's destruction -- it really [[IncrediblyLamePun cut a slice into Father's plans]]. Plus the School Bus Imperial Walkers and the Sled Snowspeeders in a giant Hoth/Snow Day battle.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents'' had an episode that combined original trilogy references with allusions to ''[[{{Prequel}} Attack of the Clones]]'' when Timmy wishes for a copy machine that makes things real. The "Abra-Catastrophe" special also had a limited example in the opening dream sequence. The show is littered with ''Star Wars'' references: another one was when Timmy was trying to win the "Dimmy Awards". One of the scenes he filmed was a parody of the scene where Skywalker was trying to blow up the Deathstar.Creator/ButchHartman is a huge Star Wars fan. The "WesternAnimation/{{Wishology}}" trilogy even had the Cantina scene and Vicky dressing up as Leia.
** Also done in the episode where Poof [[spoiler: went to Spellementary school]]. Foop and Poof got into a "wandsaber" fight with Foop as Darth Maul and Poof as Young Obi Wan.

* An episode of ''SerieS/That70sShow'' was set when ''Franchise/StarWars'' was first in theaters (It wouldn't become ''Film/ANewHope'' until years later). Eric worries about losing Donna to another guy, resulting in a dream sequence that puts the cast in ''Star Wars''. The best part is Red as Obi-Wan: "Jedi Knight? More like Jedi [[CatchPhrase dumbass]]."(As a result it became one of Eric's defining gags.)

From an EvilEmpire capturing a rebel Princess, to a black clad warrior with a familial bond to a party member, to a gigantic superweapon with enough power to obliterate a civilization. Special mention goes to Balthier, a Sky Pirate with a CoolShip and a long lived [[BeastMan Beast(wo)man]] companion, [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold who hides a heart of gold behind a mercenary exterior]].
