    Theme Parks 
  • Disneyland is full of these to former attractions. To whit:
    • In The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, just as you leave the Heffalumps and Woozles part, if you look behind you, you can see three trophy heads - Max, Buff, and Melvin, from the attraction that once occupied that spot: Country Bear Jamboree. In Florida, at Walt Disney World, turning around at the right moment you will be able to see a picture of Mr Toad handing over a deed to Owl as an homage to Mr Toad's Wild Ride which used to occupy that space.
    • Somewhere in the projector room in the queue for Indiana Jones Adventure, there is an Eeyore signnote  - that spot used to be the Eeyore section of the old parking lot.
    • In Autopia, there's a bronzed Midget Autopia car, referencing the long-gone attraction.
    • Swiss Family Treehouse, based off of the movie Swiss Family Robinson, once occupied the spot where Tarzan's Treehouse is now. A gramophone in Tarzan's Treehouse still plays the Swisskapolka
    • The Mighty Microscope from Adventure Thru Inner Space is still there - you can see it across from a mechanical arm that almost hits the Starspeeder 3000 in Star Tours and the comet scene pays a subtle nod to the snowflakes from Adventure.
      • The new Star Tours once again features the Mighty Microscope on left hand side of the screen in a lit corridor just before the Starspeeder 1000 leaves the unfinished Death Star 1 through a docking bay.
    • An actual engine from the Mine Train thru Nature's Wonderland sits at the edge of the Rivers of America
      • Similarly, one of the first rooms of Big Thunder Mountain is a cavern with pools of multicolored water utilizing forced perspective. This is a reference to the Rainbow Caverns section of Nature's Wonderland which partly occupied the area of Big Thunder Mountain.
    • Mike Fink Keel Boats transported guests along the Rivers of America until 1997. One boat, the Gullywhumper, is moored as a prop along the rivers.
    • There are four shout-outs to the House of the Future in Innoventions alone.
    • The audio-animatronic critters from the old America Sings attraction were mostly moved to Splash Mountain (a lot of them are on the riverboat at the end of the ride, which can also be seen from the train between New Orleans Square Station and Toontown/Fantasyland Station). Two of the ducks from America Sings were stripped of their outer coverings and turned into the small robots in the Star Tours queue.
  • Universal Orlando Resort's new water park, Volcano Bay, includes a subtle Shout Out to the resort's previous water park, Wet 'n Wildnote . The new park features a pair of water slides named Maku and Puihi. Maku means "Wet" and "Puihi" means "Wild" in the Maori language.
  • Being famous for its mermaid show, one of Weeki Wachee Springs' regular shows is an adaptation of The Little Mermaid.

  • The BIONICLE web serials contain small references to The Wizard of Oz and Jaws. The Mata Nui On-Line Game meanwhile hid a quote from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy in the Cypher Language on one of the Ko-Koro temple walls and the statue from Tintin: The Broken Ear can be seen in Vakama's hut.
  • In G.I. Joe, the redheaded Shana O'Hara was born in the South (specifically, Atlanta, Georgia). She is, indeed, a fierce and attractive Southern Belle. Her codename? Scarlett.
  • GoGo's Crazy Bones:
    • The character Jaws is made to look like the shark in the movie poster for the movie Jaws. The character's even named after the movie!
    • Another Gogo's character, Cupix, quite clearly appears to have Tetris running on his screen.
  • The Star Monsters series has characters in it that can go through evolution in the following fashion: A Star Monster evolves into a new Star Monster, and can then evolve into another new Star Monster from there, if possible. Sound familiar?
