* Nickelodeon's ''Turkey Television'' had a recurring sketch starring [[Series/YouCantDoThatOnTelevision Adam Reid]] as a kid secretly keeping an alien in his closet. All we ever saw of the alien was an E.T.-like hand that would reach out of the closet, with a glowing light. The skits consisted of Adam having goofy conversations with the alien.

However, he turns out to be Creator/StevenSpielberg, and he approves of it.

* ''Series/StrangerThings'':
** Several episodes frame the kids' relationship with Eleven in a way that's deliberately similar to Elliot's relationship with E.T. Mike lets her hide in his house from government agents, he shows her his Star Wars action figures, she hides from his mom in the closet, she reveals her powers of telekinesis, she rides on the back of his bicycle at one point, the kids disguise her with a dress and a blonde wig when they take her out in public, and she [[spoiler:uses a radio to communicate with another world]] in one pivotal scene. The first episode even introduces Mike and his friends playing ''Dungeons and Dragons'' -- the same way Elliot and his friends were introduced in ''E.T.''
** [[spoiler:The scenes where the group is escaping on bikes looks like it's about to recreate the flying bikes scene from ''E.T.''... until Eleven flips a van with her mind.]]
** In the second season, Eleven wants to go out trick-or-treating disguised as a ghost, figuring no one will recognize her. This works for ET, but Hopper denies Eleven the opportunity to even try something that risky.
** In the second season, Will mentions that his favorite candy is Reese's Pieces, which factor heavily into ''E.T.'' Dustin's relationship with Dart is also largely built around feeding it candy.
