This is the reason why Chuck Cunningham blipped out of existence in the Happy Days universe.

Cupcake is a - say it with me now! - Time Lord.
  • Look at the controls for Cupcake's time machine - set in the middle of a room with big circles on the walls, with six sides full of unlabeled dials and switches. That is clearly a TARDIS control panel. (Of course, out-of-universe HB wanted to do an animated Doctor Who, she's clearly a holdover)
    • Even weirder she may not be the first one in Hanna-Barbera, The The Super Globetrotters fought a guy who directly called himself The Time Lord, several years earlier.

How well does it match the trope?
