* ''WesternAnimation/TheCritic'':
** "Every Doris Has Her Day": Jay needs a date for a musical premiere and (after assorted failures) resorts to holding a call-in contest on his show, wherein any woman who says "the name of Spielberg's adorable extra-terrestrial" wins. It doesn't work, as the only caller is a guy who thought the answer was [[Film/CloseEncountersOfTheThirdKind Richard Dreyfuss]].
** "A Song for Margo": one of the movies that Jay reviews is ''D.T.: The Drunken Terrestrial'', where the sloshed alien insists on trying to fly after having a few and falls out of the basket during the moon shot. Unlike a lot of other movies featured on the show, Jay actually liked this one.
* ''WesternAnimation/TalesFromTheCryptkeeper'': the bike chase in "Fare Tonight" ends with Camille peddling, Mildred riding in the basket, and the two jumping a movable bridge in the process of rising. While in midair, we see them and their bike pass right by a full moon. Being such movie fans, they lampshade this "ever cinematic" moment.

Added DiffLines:

** In "Fannie 911", the scene where Roger becomes sick and turns pale upon becoming too nice resembles E.T. also becoming sick and pale near the end.
** Roger Smith in general has a body shaped like E.T.
