Would Oney NG's "Dragonzball P" web ani short be an affectionate parody of Dragonball Z? Or is it just a regular parody?
Can't tell without more context, sorry.
I really think the various categories need to be streamlined. In particular, anything specifically internet-based. We have subcategories "New Media" and "Web Original", plus main article tabs "Web Animation" and "Web Video". Are there any major differences that require these to all be different subheadings? Couldn't they just be distilled into "Web Original" (non-animation) and "Web Animation"?
A good number of these examples are barely parodies, let alone affectionate.
Tremors, while not an out-and-out parody, includes several gentle swipes at 50's monster-movie plots. (if it's not a parody, why is it here?)
Squad-level tactical combat games Freedom Force and Freedom Force vs. the 3rd Reich are affectionate parodies of Silver Age comic books. (No they weren't, see archived discussion)
The examples I think need to be reviewed: Mad magazine, Teen Titans Trouble in Tokyo,Snakes on a Plane, Vampires Suck,Die Hard, Princess Bride, Power Rangers, Apollo Justice,and Spore. There are probably more, but I don't to complain about X that I don't Y.
A parody does not automatically make it an affectionate parody. An affectionate parody also isn't a few 'take that, me'.
Have to agree that doing a bit of cleanup on the examples wouldn't hurt.
slight mistake regarding this entry under "Western Animation": "Shin Chan and Robot Chicken have parodied Star Wars and demonstrated more knowledge of and reverence for the originals than most, including character names and terms that aren't mentioned in the movies."
Crayon Shin-Chan is an Anime, so it should be removed and made it's own entry, since it also parodies things like Ultraman and Kamen Rider
