American Dad! has the department stores C. J. Neppey (J. C. Penney), Big Buy (Best Buy), and CostGo (Costco).
In the Halloween episode, Francine mentions going to Tar-Jays (Target, but playing off the joke of pronouncing the name as if it were French in order to make it sound more upscale) and picking up some Huggies.
A Stardoes appears in "Arthur's Perfect Christmas".
Another episode has a thinly disguised Brosnan-eraJames Bond film with the hero named James Houndnote "James Hound" is also the name of a little known Terrytoons character..
And of course there's Bionic Bunny, who is totally not Superman. (Though he has a different origin story from what little we see of his show; apparently he's a cyborg instead of an alien, making him more a reference to The Six Million Dollar Man) A later episode has a show called Dark Bunny, seemingly a counterpart to Batman.
Teletubbies has been parodied three times on the show. Once as the show "Love Ducks" in season 4, "Vidiboobies" in Season 5, and "Silly Squirrels" (which is a combination of that show and Care Bears). in Season 10. Additionally the same episode to feature the "Vidiboobies" also featured an un-named parody of Rugrats
One of Arthur's favorite shows is The Magic Toolbox, which features the segment "And Now Let's Talk To Some Kids".
The episode "A Date With The Health Inspector" features the search for the "Xbox Killer". Though dialogue referred to the Xbox by name, the console itself was drawn with a Y-shaped motif on top in place of the X-shaped motif found on real Xboxes.
The episode "Smokin' With Cigarettes" featured Creepy Child Lamilton Taeshawn beating up his grandmother at a local "Walli-Mart." Curiously, Wal-Mart is referred to by name in later episodes.
In "The Fried Chicken Flu" we have Bluto's (Popeyes), Temple's Chicken (Church's Chicken) and Chick-Le-Fay (Chick-fil-a).
In the ChalkZone episode "That Thing You Drew", Rudy Tabootie's favorite comic book artist "Drew Yerface" has a "Beep" in his driveway.
Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers doesn't make a lot of use of this trope, but it does have an episode ("The Case of the Cola Cult") partly revolving around a beverage named "Coo-Coo Cola"note Which has been used in other animated productions as well. While there isn't any Coke-like logo seen anywhere, the theme song mentioned that "it's bottled in Pensacola" where the Coca-Cola Company did have a bottling plant at that time.
In the original pilot, Cosmo and Wanda first appear to Timmy by popping out of his Magic 9 Ball (Magic 8 Ball).
Another episode deals with a string of robberies at "Wall 2 Wall Mart"
One episode plot involves Timmy getting a job as a basketball ballboy to pay for a new V Cube (combo of Xbox and Nintendo GameCube) game system.
One Family Guy Halloween episode gives us this exchange near the end:
Stewie: Brian, you took me out on my first Halloween tonight, and you showed me an exciting time. And for that, I'm going to let you pick out some candy from my bag. Brian: Oh, thanks. Stewie: And keep in mind we can't use any brand names, due to advertising concerns. Brian: Right, okay, I'll have a Mr. Wiffle bar, a Kooky Nut Pop, some Gyminyms, uh, a Zip-Zap, a Choco-Buddy, uh, a $64000 Bar, a Not-A-Finger, and a Dawkin's Peanut Butter Disk. Stewie: God, I hate television...
Similar dialogue appeared in "Cool Hand Peter", which is currently the page quote:
Peter: Boy, I feel like I haven't eaten in a week. Hey, if we pass a McDaniel's or a Burger Queen, let's hop out. Quagmire: Oh, that's right. We're on television. Joe: Oh, I'd love a flame-broiled Bopper! Quagmire: So frustrating. We all know what we're talking about!
Joe: I put in a call from the McDaniel's payphone while you guys were getting that nine-piece Chicken McFingers and those Diet Conks and those Fresh Fries. Quagmire: Oh, come o- Th-they don'town French fries!

(Enjoy your affordable Swedish crap!), (Kid)Nappster, Iffy Pop popcorn, Mom's eyePhone and Taco Bellvue Hospital: Normal, healthy baby? Supersize it for 79 cents!
Patient: How's my tumor, doctor? Chihuahua in Doctor Clothes: ...Grande.
The "Box" Network which cancelled Planet Express (whose neon "B" on their building logo once glitched to look like an "F") is demonized after Futurama was cancelled by the Fox Network. Their tirades against Box also introduce us to Carton Network.
Futuristic product placement is even used in the closing logo, which reads "30th CENTURY FOX TELEVISION" (or "30th TELEVISION" in syndication)
Many of Nicktoons TV's earlier station IDs featured late-1990s and early-2000s Nickelodeon IDs with the "Nicktoons" name put in.
Phineas and Ferb: Over the credits of "Phineas' Birthday Clip-a-Thon", we hear Candace saying "Mom!" repeatedly, to the tune of the theme song. At the end, she says, "Mom! Phineas and Ferb digitally tuned my voice!" (rather than AutoTuned.)
In "Total Rickall," Rick is remembering a barbecue he hosted. He mentions that he's like Tom Cruise in "Cuisine" instead of Cocktail. Played with because he keeps asking if "Cuisine" is the right name, though he never gets an answer.
"Ricksy Business" contains this exchange alluding to Little Richard and the opening line to "Tutti Frutti":
Rick: It's like that old song, "blomp blomp-a noop noop a-noop noop noop". You guys know that song? From Tiny Rogerts? You never heard of it? You know, the black effeminate guy from the '50s? No-nobody? A-all right, whatever.
Also mentioned, Kelly brings her older brother to a Shipley's Donuts look-alike donut shop only to deliver some donuts to the police station before resuming his job as a female superhero.
Referenced on the show is a un-named department store at the Megadale Mall (as much as a girly-ified McDonald's-themed restaurant, known as McRobin's, as a cross between McDonald's and Robin (you know, the sexy-looking heavyweight girl) from Pilotwings 64).
The Coca-Cola Company, a corporate sponsorship of SheZow, had the official names of "Kelly", "Maz" and, of course, "SheZow", shown on their "Share a SheOke with" Coke bottles (the word "SheOke" is a nod to the "Coke" product brand).
And in "Treehouse of Horror XXI" (see the "Quotes" tab), the names of the board games that Bart and Milhouse look over are Taffyland, Drops and Risers, Consternation, Ravernous Ravernous Rhinos, Mouse Catch, Battleboat, Funopoly, Crate of Apes, Yahtzu, and Tiddlywonks. Plus a scene from a Clue-like game: "Colonel Ketchup, I say it was you that killed him in the parlor with the letter opener."

"Million Dollar Maybe" features the Funtendo Zii, as well as the couch gag for "Lisa Goes Gaga".
Many of their stores are parodies of real-world stores, with a few name knock-offs: Sprawl-Mart, CostMo. Oddly their store Try-N-Save has a similar sign design as a Chicago business Buy-N-Save which may have been established a couple years later.
"Hungry Hungry Homer"
Bart: Ow! Why did I get this LEGO shirt? Marge: Don't you mean Blocko shirt? Bart: Right, right. Blocko shirt.
Parodied in the episode 'Lisa Simpson, This Isn't Your Life', the family travels and drives by McDonalds, Walmart and 7-11, with Bart saying "I've never heard of any of these places."
And again in "The Mook, the Chef, the Wife and Her Homer", where it's revealed that Krusty actually pays off the mob to keep McDonalds and Burger King out of Springfield.
And again in "22 Short Films About Springfield", where police officer Eddie talks with Lou and Chief Wiggum about a McDonald's he went to in Shelbyville.
"In the Name of the Grandfather" has Oirish knockoffs of IT companies like Mick-rosoft, Hewlett-Fitzpackard and Cisc'O Systems, in a scene where Lisa is talking about how Ireland has risen to the forefront of technology.

In Smeshariki, Losyash uses the operating system "Okna 96", a parody of Windows 95/98 with a similar boot screen. ("Okna" is Russian for "Windows".)
South Park goes as close as it can get to real brands, with names like "HBC" (NBC), "Harbucks Coffee", "Wall-Mart", and "J-Mart", as well as the "Okama Gamesphere", a pastiche of the Nintendo GameCube. Due to the occasional Product Placement deal, however, some episodes have featured stuff like the PSP or the Nintendo Wii...plus, you know, World of Warcraft.
The "Fantastic Easter Special" episode features a CONY television set.
And of course, Cheesy Poofs, originally intended to be Cheetos Puffs.
The episode "Stanley's Cup" does refer to the actual Pepsi Center, plus the National Hockey League's Colorado Avalanche and Detroit Red Wings. However, the team uniforms use the town names instead of the logos◊, Reebok (NHL's uniform provider) is disguised as "CLK", and the scoreboard has generic logos. (amusingly, South Park Studios has long provided its talents\characters to an NHL team, the Los Angeles Kings)
In "All About Mormons", Gary and his family are shown playing a board game called LIVING, a parody of Hasbro's The Game Of Life. Kyle, Stan and Kenny are also shown playing this game in "Cartman Sucks".
Played with in Steven Universe; Steven's current home game system is a DOLPHIN, which in real life was the production codename for the Nintendo GameCube. The system itself is hooked up to a SUMY-brand television. Word of God, however, is that this series takes place in an Alternate History to our own, so these may be actual names, rather than knockoffs. The characters are also seen watching videos on TubeTube, and posting "cheeps" (which correspond to actual tweets on an official Character Blog).
In Super Mario World, the giant television in "Rock TV" is made by Koopasonic (spoofing Panasonic).

The Transformers: Certain characters whose toys originally came from Diaclone transformed into specific sponsored race cars. Mirage turned into the Gitanes-sponsored no. 26 Ligier JS-11, Jazz turns into the Martini Racing no. 4 Porsche 935 Turbo, and Wheeljack turns into the Alitalia-sponsored Lancia Stratos Turbo No. 539. To avoid infringement, the brand names were changed to: "Citanes", "Martinii", and "Alitalla". Unreleased in Transformers was another toy using the Stratos mold but with a different head and bearing the deco from real cars' tenure under Marlboro (changed to "Marlboor").
Looks to be averted with TakaraTomy's upcoming Masterpiece Wheeljack, which features more accurate Alitalia livery, with the correct spelling - if Takara's promotional pictures are accurate.
Inverted with the original Megatron toy, whose alt-mode was a Walther P38 pistol, and features the Walther company's logo.
In the Transformers Animated episode "A Fistful of Energon," Bumblebee and Sari are absent due to spending the day at "Five Banners Roller Coaster Kingdom."

An advertising poster for "Coca Curla" can be seen in the Woody Woodpecker cartoon "Solid Ivory".
The New Woody Woodpecker Show (1999 Fox Kids series) has "Butterscottie Finger-Pies" and they can be seen at "Lash and Nash's Cash and Dash".
Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog does this in "Sonic's Song", which features a record album by a band called "KIZZ", complete with a similar logo. Another one appears in the episode "The Mobius 5000" with a brand of gasoline called "86", complete with ball logonote Which ultimately leads to the "86 on the chicken" joke..
