Later in that film, Stewie, trying to chase his future self takes a car surrounded by Jawas by shooing them away.
  • In "Chitty Chitty Death Bang", In the episode about Stewie's birthday, the psycho baby himself pulls a weapon on an airport security guard and says he will spend the rest of his life "in frozen carbonite."

Later he shoots a guard at the airport saying, 'Enjoy spending forever trapped in carbonite, my friend.' He then becomes encased with his hands up like Han Solo. Stewie freezes an airline pilot in carbonite so he can pass down his wisdom. Stewie remembers when he was still a sperm swimming to his mother's egg. He is the same as his normal self but inside a sperm "space ship". His attire and how he battles the other sperm with laser cannons, etc spoofs the death star battle of this movie. Stewie freezes the aeroplane pilot in carbonite just like what happenned to Han Solo in this film.
  • In "Peter, Peter, Caviar Eater", Peter mentions a Star Wars Collectible Glass when discussing vases. Brian snaps Peter out of his rich snobbery by using the glass and the story of Lando Calrissian's betrayal. He also does a parody of the famous "I am your father" line.

A fellow sperm swims up on them and shoots other sperm down as Darth Vader did with the other ships in ANH. When Peter and Lois decide to have another baby, Stewie goes into Peter's testicles and destroys sperm ships in a parody of the attack on the Death Star, which both of Peter's balls are shown to look like.

  • In the beginning of the episode "PTV", when Stewie has a sword-vs-rubber-chicken fight with Osama Bin Laden, their initial movements match those of the start of Yoda's duel with Count Dooku in Attack of the Clones.

  • In "The Courtship of Stewie's Father", Peter conducts the Sand People Choir in a cutaway. When the Sand People run away, Obi-Wan Kenobi appears and says "The Sand People are easily frightened, but they'll soon be back, and in greater numbers."

  • In "Brian Sings and Swings", Meg walks in on Chris in the bathroom while his hair and cap is being placed on his head, with a sample from The Imperial March being played in the background.

Han asks if this is still okay, and Peter replies that it was just his fat that was cut open.

  • In "Chick Cancer", a cutaway recerates the scene in A New Hope when the Rebel commander describes the battle plan and Luke says to another pilot, "It's not impossible. I used to bullseye Womp Rats with my T-16 back home; they're not much bigger than two meters." After this, the other pilot pulls Luke aside and the two argue about Luke humiliating him. The argument is in the style of Curb Your Enthusiasm and includes the show's theme music at the end.
  • In the episode "Barely Legal", Stewie mentions the time when Palpatine figured out the formula for great Star Wars dialogue. This leads to a cutaway scene showing Palpatine sitting on his throne saying "Something, something, something, dark side. Something, something, something, complete..."
  • In "Peter's Two Dads", Peter sees a Force Ghost of his father shortly after his death accompanied by Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda.

Among the objects was a genuine Kenner model of the Millennium Falcon.

  • In episode 318, Star Force: Fugitive Alien II, the episode opens with Tom Servo and Crow engaging in an "ontological discussion about the nature of puppets" and their "symbiotic relationship to man." After touching on Big Bird and H.R. Pufnstuf, the conversation turns on the definition of "puppet" and how it differs from a costume.
  • Tom then admits he doesn't know how to classify Yoda. The end of the movie features a long sequence that can be described as either an homage or blatant theft of the trench run from Star Wars.

  • In episode 418, Attack of the Eye Creatures, a spaceship blows up, followed by a rapid jump-cut to a policeman in an entirely different location saying "What the—" The movie never specifies how the policeman knew about the explosion. Crow reacts by saying "There's a great disturbance in the Force."
  • In episode 420, The Human Duplicators, the bots discuss the revelation that Dr. Kolos (Richard Kiel), creator of the androids, was an android himself. "I thought it was really great that Richard Kiel finally came out in the end and confessed that he was indeed an android," says Joel. "I mean, it's not like we didn't know it all along..." This prompts a discussion of other famous robots "coming out."
  • In episode 513, The Brain That Wouldn't Die, during a shot of an artificial respirator, Mike does a Darth Vader impersonation: "Luke, join me or you'll star in Corvette Summer."

    a Star Wars billboard and blasts it with his laser. "So there's just a sign that says 'Star Wars'?" asks Mike. "Reminding one of the movie Star Wars," Servo answers. The billboard does not show any of the actual promotional Star Wars posters, merely the words. (Laserblast was released in 1978, the year after Star Wars.) After the sign explodes, Crow complains, "I hadn't finished reading that." Later, during another Billy Duncan laser-blasting spree, Crow says, "Mark Hamill in Falling Down."

He then does two cycles of Vader-breathing.
  • In episode 913, Quest of the Delta Knights, the heroes are chased through a tree-village. One of the men shouts out, "I'm coming!" in a high-pitched voice. Mike asks, "So the Ewoks grew up to be big, stupid men?"

Comic Book Guy is ahead of them in line cos-playing in a eBay-bought outfit, the actual plaid clothes of the director Randall Curtis (a spoof of George Lucas), with expandable pregnancy panels added to fit his rotund figure. The movie is horrible, with an extremely long and boring Senate debate scene and an annoying character named "Jim-Jam" (Jar Jar Binks) introduced, so Marge convinces the children to write Randall a letter of complaint. Their only reply is to be written off with free Jim-Jam cereal (which is simple alphabet cereal with more J's, as Curtis says later on) and merchandise. The family later decide to visit California, and the kids crash Cosmic Wars Ranch, where they meet Mr. Curtis himself. They convince him that better technological FX are no replacement for good storytelling, and the director agrees to go back to his roots, which is old western and samurai movies; he rides off on a tauntaun to the video store. The entire first act is seen as a prime example of Lucas bashing in pop culture.

    • In the episode Steal this Episode, one of the pirated films Homer Simpson aired was Cosmic Wars Episode VII. The claim that a space-time rift cancelled out Episodes I, II, and III referred to the bad reception to the Prequel Trilogy of Star Wars, the positive reception for The Force Awakens when it came out, and also the events of the 2009 Star Trek movie.
    • In the episode The Man Who Came to Be Dinner, it was mentioned that Diz-Nee bought out the Cosmic Wars franchise, a clear allusion to Disney's buyout of Lucasfilm and the Star Wars property back in 2012.

    The Chewbacca Defense in use

    Kyle's costume, shouting, "Why don't you go back to Endor, you freaking Wookiee!" Kyle responds, "Wookiees don't live on Endor! There is so in the coldest non-magical sector of the Galaxy." and Cartman mocks him. Kyle later finds out, much to his chagrin, that all of his classmates (with the exception of Cartman, Stan and Kenny) are dressed up like Chewbacca as well. 
  • In the episode "Chickenpox," Cartman reads out loud from his paper on the subject of "How I would make Star Wars better":
"I hope that one day, America could be more like Endor, where the Ewoks live. Endor is very cool… They have trees and Ewoks and barbecues which is why I like Endor more than America. It's cool…"
―Eric Cartman[src]
  • In the episode "Clubhouses," Cartman and Kenny's clubhouse is named "Ewok Village 2000."
  • The "Chewbacca defense" is a legal strategy used by Johnnie Cochran in the South Park episode "Chef Aid". In this episode, Cochran (or rather, an animated character parodying the real-life lawyer) shows the jury a picture of Chewbacca and gives a speech about how the fact he is talking to them about Chewbacca during the trial "does not make sense." He continues this line of defense with increasingly silly reasons why talking about Chewbacca during a trial does not make sense. His speech confuses the jury to the point that one juror's head explodes. In popular culture, especially on the Internet, the term "Chewbacca defense" has come to mean any legal strategy which attempts to overwhelm its audience with irrelevant arguments to obscure the truth. The defense is based upon the 'fact' that Chewbacca resides on Endor, which is ironically false. (Wookiees being from Endor was a misconception that first appeared in the earlier episode "Pink Eye.")

  • In the episode "The Return of Chef", the title character is killed off and refashioned in a manner similar to Anakin Skywalker's transformation to Darth Vader in Revenge of the Sith. Of particular note is the character, now called "Darth Chef", is voiced by Peter Serafinowicz, the voice of Darth Maul in The Phantom Menace.
  • Yoda appears in "Imaginationland". In the episodes "Imaginationland: Episode II" and "Imaginationland: Episode III", Stormtroopers, Darth Maul, and Luke Skywalker all appear as residents of the titular world.
  • In a very obscure reference to the original television broadcast of The Star Wars Holiday Special from the South Park episode "Mr. Hankey's Christmas Classics", a parody of a recurring bumper from New York's WCBS-TV 2 featuring anchor Rolland Smith saying, "Fighting the Frizzies…at eleven" was repeated several times during the episode, and parodied again in the credit sequence.[2]

  • The entire movie is a parody of Star Wars.
  • Luke and Han are combined into one character, named Lonestar.
  • Chewbacca is replaced by Barf.
  • Princess Vespa replaces Leia, and the famous "buns" hairdo is also replaced.
  • Dark Helmet, a character that is supposed to be like Darth Vader, has an absurdly large helmet.
  • Yoda is replaced by Yogurt, a merchandising expert, and master of the Schwarz, which is like the Force.
  • In addition to lightspeed, Dark Helmet's flagship has "Ludicrous Speed".
  • All characters are on a desert planet that resembles Tatooine early in the movie.
  • One of the lightsabers has the same thing in Star Wars.
  • The heroes encounter small, cloaked humanoids who are clearly parodies of Jawas.
  • The replacement for the Death Star is a Statue of Liberty shaped spaceship that steals the air from planet atmospheres.
  • Dark Helmet was a college room mate of one of Lonestar's relatives.
  • Instead of interrogating Vespa, Helmet threatens her with plastic surgery.
  • Instead of Vader's lightsaber, the characters wield rings with energy beams, and these rings also focus the power of the Schwarz.
  • Stormtroopers are replaced by black-armored soldiers.
  • The only droid is a gold robot named Dot Matrix, who is a parody of C-3PO.


  • 1.1: "Beginnings". In an early scene, Tim asks Daisy how things are going. She replies, "Same as always", to which Tim responds, "That bad, huh?" in a parody of Luke Skywalker and Han Solo's dialogue in Jabba's Palace in Return of the Jedi.
  • 1.4: "Battles". A clerk at a dog pound says that if a dog is not sold, "we put them down…all of them" a quote is made by Darth Maul in The Phantom Menace. Daisy then screams, "Noooooo!" in a parody of the scene from The Empire Strikes Back where Luke Skywalker learns that Darth Vader is his father.
  • 1.5: "Chaos". Tim invites Brian round to watch the Star Wars trilogy. Tim cries in joy as the Yub Nub song plays, and brings up his theory that the Imperial officer who decided not to shoot down the escape pod containing R2-D2 and C-3PO in A New Hope is responsible for everything that later occurs in the film. This leads to a discussion on chaos theory. Later, during the planning of Colin's rescue, the following dialogue occurs, mimicking the scene in the Rebel briefing room where Luke Skywalker and "Fake Wedge" comment on Jan Dodonna's plan:
Tim: "Now, we're going to go over the fence here. It's about two meters high, so we're going to have to do a bit of climbing."
Brian: "That's impossible!"
Mike: "It's not impossible. I used to climb over my, uh, neighbor's fence when I was a kid; it was about two meters."
Later in the episode, Tim assigns the group callsigns: he is "Han", Mike is "Luke" (to which Mike objects, asking if he can be "Han" instead), Daisy is "Leia", Brian is "Chewie" and, as Tim is running out of names, Twist is "Jabba". Twist asks if Jabba is "the Princess", to which the others hastily respond, "Yes". A music in the background that resembles the Imperial March.
  • 1.7: "Ends". An argument between Tim and Daisy concerning Tim meeting up with his ex-girlfriend ends with the following dialogue, that uses the same dialogue between Luke Skywalker and Han Solo prior to the Battle of Yavin:
    Daisy: "Right, well, take care of yourself, then."
    Tim: "Thanks."
    Daisy: "I guess it's what you're best at, isn't it?"
  • 2.1 "Back". Tim says he had some things to "work out" with George Lucas following the end of series 1; we then cut to a sequence wherein Tim burns his evil fire-breathing dragon in a parody of Luke Skywalker burning his father's armor on Endor in Episode VI. Later, when Tim, Daisy and Mike arrive home to find the government agents waiting with Brian, Brian says, "they arrived right before you did." Tim responds with, "you Lando!"
  • 2.2 "Change". Tim rants at a young boy about the "jumped-up firework display of a toy advert" he believes The Phantom Menace to be, after the boy asks for a Jar Jar Binks doll. His boss, Bilbo Bagshot, then chastises him for his irrational hatred of the film, reminding him that the Ewoks were just as "rubbish" as Jar Jar, but Tim doesn't mind them. In comparison with Jar Jar, Tim says, the Ewoks are like Shaft. He is fired, but a woman at the DSS takes a shine to him because he didn't like The Phantom Menace. Later, when Tim overcomes this problem, rival comic book store owner Derek, whom Tim now works for, says "well done, Tim. 'You've taken your first step into a larger world'", quoting Obi-Wan Kenobi's line to Luke Skywalker in A New Hope.
  • 2.5: "Gone". Following a confrontation with Tim and Daisy, Duane Benzie (Peter Serafinowicz, also voicing Darth Maul) finds and steals their house keys, declaring "At last, I shall emerge the enemies. At last, I shall have revenge", as a reference to the quote: "At last we shall reveal ourselves to the Jedi. At last we will have revenge".
  • 2.6: "Dissolution". The final scene also parodies of the final scenes of The Empire Strikes Back. Mike and Brian set off in Mike's van to find Marsha, prompting the following dialogue, held over walkie-talkies:
Mike: "When we find Marsha, we'll contact you."
Brian: "We'll, er, we'll find her Daisy…promise you."
Tim: "We'll see you at the rendezvous."
[Mike yawns, which, over the radio, statics]
Mike and Brian drive off as the closing music of the film starts. The sound of the Millennium Falcon departing is also used for Mike's van. The last shot is of Tim with his arm around Daisy, both looking out of the window of their flat, just as Luke and Leia look out of the window of Redemption. The scene irises out, and the music segues resembles the Star Wars end theme as the credits roll in the familiar Star Wars style against a starry backdrop.
The scene where Daisy opens her new lipstick is shot in the same as Luke Skywalker turning on his lightsaber for the first time, and sound effects are the same.
  • The documentary "Skip to the End" features an epilogue for the show, featuring Simon Pegg and Jessica Stevenson in character as Tim and Daisy. Tim says he loves Daisy, to which she replies, "I know", possibly as the lines are quoted spoken by Han Solo and Leia Organa. Finally, Tim calls their baby Luke, presumably after Luke Skywalker, though Daisy replies, "Tim, we're not calling her 'Luke'."

Speed Racer: The Next Generation

  • In one episode, Conor is trying to get Speed to answer a question. To get his attention, Conor puts a bucket over his head and starts making breathing noises, which are similar to the ones that Darth Vader's breathing apparatus makes. He subsequently says "Speed, I am your father!"

  • In series 5, a regular section called "Dan Quayle in Space" (named "The Empire Strikes Back") opens with ex-US vice president-like Dan Quayle waving a light stick around while it is making lightsaber sounds. Afterwards, a puppet of Salman Rusty comes on in a Leia-esque hologram saying "Help me Obi-Wan Kamanie, you're my only hope!" After a brief exchange a surly/angered/macho robot named FU2 says "Feel the Force Dan, feel the Force!"

SpongeBob SquarePants

  • In Plankton!, when Plankton controls the brain as Spongebob walks across Spongebob's house and quotes Darth Vader "I have you now!"
  • In Missing Identity, SpongeBob (Tom Kenny) eats some of Gary's (the snail's) petfood which tastes so awful that SpongeBob lets out a howl so loud and deep that a guy at the Snail Po (a play on Alpo) HQ says, "I not sure, I feel... a disturbance" parodying the Destruction of Alderaan. The sonic wave is the "million voices crying for help." "Patrick, are you with me or against me. Can you give me a hint?"
  • In the episode Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy V, Barnacle Boy says "I'm crossing over to the dark side" only for it to turn out to be a part of the Krusty Krab not lit up, Mr. Krabs replies "Why should I waste money to light the whole store."
  • in "Mermaid Man & Barnacle Boy 3" we see Man Ray frozen in tartar sauce, just like Han Solo frozen in carbonite.

  • In "Dunces and Dragons", Princess Pearl's hairstyle looks like Leia's hairstyle.
  • In "Patty Hype", when Mr. Krabs comes out after sneezes for dust, it resembles Princess Leia waking Han Solo from carbonite freeze from Return of the Jedi.


  • In the episode Chalky Trouble the Sherriff shows up at the Cuyler's house dressed as Princess Leia and references A New Hope by saying "Help me Obi-Wan, you're my only hope," then picks up Early and kisses him and says "For luck," followed by saying "From Star get it?"

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine

Star Trek: Enterprise

  • The Xindi superweapon is a large, spherical station/ship with a beam weapon capable of destroying an entire planet. Its appearance and function strongly resemble the Death Star, which was intentional, as Rick Berman wanted it that way.
  • One episode features a ship called the ISS Avenger, which was named as an homage to the Star Destroyer Avenger. The homage is all the more appropriate in that the episode takes place in the Mirror Universe, where Starfleet is not a primarily scientific branch of the diverse, benevolent Federation, but the brutal military arm of the oppressive, Human-dominated Terran Empire.
  • The episode Kir'Shara features a holographic device that contains ancient Vulcan teachings called the Kir'Shara. The Kir'Shara is shaped like a Sith Holocron, and it's purpose (containing ancient teachings) is similar to the purpose of holocrons. The history it records - the schism in which the cool, logical Vulcans and the fiery, passionate Romulans evolved into separate races - is also similar to the ancient Force Wars between the light and dark sides.

Star Trek: The Next Generation

  • The name Vader can be seen on a gravestone in the episode "Sub Rosa" (see here).
  • in "Encounter at Farpoint", the drug dispenser worn by Q is labeled "Army R2D CPO" a reference to R2D2 and C-3PO (see here).

Star Trek: Voyager

  • The names of some Star Wars species are also used for species on the show, such as Quarren and Bothans - Quarren is used for a character as well.
  • One episode features a character named Kashyk.
  • Several episodes feature a spherical Borg vessel. Having been created by ILM for Star Trek: First Contact at the same time that they were working on the Special Edition re-releases, its resemblance to the Death Star has been stated to be at least somewhat intentional - a schematic of the ship in one episode is a near-perfect replica of the Death Star plans seen in the briefing before the Battle of Yavin.
  • One episode mentions a species called the Nar Shaddan, an obvious reference to Nar Shaddaa - in fact, the three crew members meeting with the Nar Shaddan were the only ones not kidnapped by the Quarren.

Stargate Atlantis

  • In the episode "Rising," Major Sheppard mentions that he is from "A galaxy far, far away."
  • In the episode "The Lost Boys," Colonel Sheppard echoes Anakin Skywalker's dialogue from The Phantom Menace to a Wraith dart he is piloting: "R2, I need you to turn the auto-pilot off! Now! [pause] Worth a try."
  • In the episode "No Man's Land," Colonel Sheppard clings his F-302 fighter to the belly of a Wraith Hive ship undetected, much as the Millennium Falcon does in The Empire Strikes Back. He later explains, he "saw it in a movie once."
  • Jason Momoa, the actor who plays Ronon Dex, as well as other cast members, have stated that they think of the character Ronon as the Atlantis version of Chewbacca ([3]).
  • In the episode "Lifeline", Colonel Sheppard says "Hold up, Chewie" to Ronon.
  • In the episode "Condemned", Colonel Sheppard says "Take it easy there Chewie" to Ronon.
  • In "The Daedalus Variations" Sheppard says to Ronon, after he slams the railgun control panel, "Easy Chewie, those buttons are your friends!"
  • In "The Lost Tribe", Sheppard and Zelenka go onboard a Traveler ship and into its hyperdrive, where the technician in charge states "It may not look like much, but it's got it where it counts. I've added some special modifications myself." This precisely mirrors Han Solo's dialogue when Luke Skywalker, Ben Kenobi and the droids are first introduced to the Millennium Falcon in A New Hope.

Stargate SG-1

  • In the season 6 episode "Memento", Colonel Ronson remarks "That old man better be right, or this will be a real short ride", a reference to A New Hope.
  • In the season 7 episode "Fallen", the scene of the F-302 destroying the power core is a humorous homage to Return of the Jedi, complete with similar visuals and terminology. There is also a subtle Star Wars reference in the dialogue as they prepare to launch the F-302: "Airstrike, this is command base, you are go for takeoff", O'Neill: "Yeah, I thought we were going with red leader on this one". Red Leader (or Red 1) being the callsign of Luke Skywalker's wing commander at the battle of Yavin.
  • The season 8 episode "Lockdown" had the System Lord Anubis possessing several members of the SGC, and upon returning in future episodes, Anubis also frequently took to using clone bodies to maintain his hold on the living realm, similar to Palpatine in Dark Empire and his use of Transfer essence. In addition, his defeat also had him entering an eternal fight with the Ancient Oma, mirroring Palpatine's defeat in Empire's End. Anubis himself also bore a strong resemblance to Palpatine, in terms of constantly wearing a dark shroud (in Anubis' case, it was because he was stuck in a half-ascended state).
  • In the season 9 episode "Crusade", Vala (who has become pregnant without sexual intercourse) asks if anyone has heard of a child being conceived without a father, and Teal'c immediately mentions Darth Vader but is cut off when Vala asks "how did that turn out?" Vala's child, however, was more similar to Palpatine.
  • In the season 10 episode "200", a mock scene depicts the never before seen Furlings as four-foot tall koalas, with a high-pitched voice and living in a village similar to the Ewoks in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, though unlike their Star Wars counterparts, the Furlings possess knowledge of advanced technology.
  • In the movie Continuum, Daniel Jackson ironically remarks "Oh, we have him now" when faced with the seemingly insurmountable odds they face compared to the fact that they have the benefit of surprise. This is a reference to Darth Vader's line in A New Hope, "I have you now".
  • Throughout the run of the series, Jack O'Neill would refer to humans acting without SGC authorization (such as the NID) as 'darksiders', and to incidents where SGC members or allies would turn on them as "turning dark side" in reference to the dark side of the Force.

Stargate Universe

  • In the episode "Water" Eli Wallace after entering a star system with an ice planet, refers to it as the Hoth system.

Static Shock

  • In "Shebang", Hotstreak goes on a fiery rampage after being disappointed in "Space Battles: Episode 9".
  • In the episode "No Man's An Island", Static and Hotstreak travel through a forest on vehicles that look very similar to speeder bikes from Return of the Jedi. When a group of villains find them, a chase scene commences very similar to the chase scene in the movie. In addition, a slight variant of the Imperial March plays.

Steven Universe

  • Like Star Wars, Steven Universe primarily focuses on extraterrestrial stuff.
  • Many gems, such as the Diamonds, bear imperialistic behavior, with the Diamonds acting like the Sith, while the Crystal Gems share the same role as the Rebel Alliance.
  • The Gem corruption is quite like the Rakghoul plague as both are capable of turning sentients feral.
  • Gems are capable of detecting each-other's presences telepathically, much like force-sensitives.
  • An episode was dubbed "Restaurant Wars".
  • In "I Am My Mom", Steven turning himself in to Aquamarine and Topaz and getting captured references Han Solo getting frozen in carbonite from The Empire Strikes Back.


  • In the Season 1-Episode 12 called "Charging into the Night"
  • The Groms have to work overtime at the Sci-Fi Convention the hotel is hosting. There are some spaceships that resemble those in Star Wars, and a droid that resembles a the Viper Probe Droid from "The Empire Strikes Back".
  • Reef reads Johnny's speech cards out loud, saying "Head of Big Nerd Council!" (referencing the Jedi Council), and "Nerd-i Master!" (referencing a Jedi Master).
  • There is a small man wearing a Yoda costume and he is seen in the beginning of the episode and the end as well. When the power goes out at the end of the episode, Emma is walking down the stairs and she screams for help. The man in the Yoda costume turns on a flashlight and says "Help it is, you seek." in the way that Yoda talks.

Storage Wars

  • When Dave Hestor's truck roles in, a knock-off version of the Imperial March sometimes plays.
  • Barry found some Star Wars items in a locker, and a Revenge of the Jedi production member jacket ultimately put him in the black.

  • During the episode "The Ghost of Suite 613," Arwin (with a Welding Mask on) says "The Force is strong in this one" with Darth Vader's voice.

The Suite Life on Deck

  • In one episode, Zack, Cody, Marcus, Woody, Mr. Moseby, and Esteban play Broadway Musical Charades and Esteban guesses "Star Wars". Mr. Moseby asks why he would guess "Star Wars", and Esteban responds by stating he thought Mr. Moseby was using a lightsaber.
  • In one episode Zack tries to use a Jedi mind trick on Mr. Moseby, but Cody says, "We're spies not Jedi! That's crazy!" Then, Zack tries to use a Jedi Mind trick on London and it works.
  • In the Episode "Twister (part 2)" Bailey daydreams a parody of The Wonderful Wizard of OZ. When the Cowardly Lion (Woody) is introduced, he calls himself Chewbacca and calls the Tin Man (Cody) C-3PO. Bailey even comments that Woody got his movies mixed up, but Woody replies "I like this movie better... Including Star Wars".


  • In "Distant Sun", as Winn is rescuing Mon-El from his cell, the latter quotes Leia's line of "Aren't you a little short for a Stormtrooper", much to Winn's excitement.
  • In "Resist", Cat Grant mistakenly calls Guardian "Darth Vader", and then admits that she never was a big fan of Star Wars anyway (coincidentally, Cat Grant's actress is the wife of Harrison Ford, who played Han Solo).
  • In "Battles Lost and Won", Supergirl briefly quotes Star Wars to Brainy, only to discover that the supercomputer doesn't understand the reference.

The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! (TV animated series)

  • In one episode, Star Koopa, Mario, Luigi, Princess Toadstool and Toad are traveling through outer space onboard a spacecraft known as the Flying Pizza, and are on their way to help the Mushroom space colonists. The colonists are in trouble, due to the fact that Darth Koopa is threatening to blow up their planet. However, Mario's group is unaware of the fact that they are being pursued by Darth Koopa's Koop Star. "Star Koopa" is an parody of A New Hope, with several characters and vehicles, such as Darth Vader (Darth Koopa, King Bowser Koopa's alter-ego, a version of Bowser with Vader's helmet, lenses and cape), Grand Moff Tarkin (Mouser, a boss in Super Mario Bros 2's Game ), Obi-Wan Kenobi (Obi-Wan Toadi), the stormtroopers (Stormtroopas, Koopa Troopas, enemies of Super Mario's games that wear costumes similar to those of Darth Vader's Imperial Stormtroopers), the X-wing Starfighters (Mushroom Starfighters) and TIE/LN starfighters (Stormtroopa Starfighters), being spoofed. Mario and Co are on their way to protect a Mushroom space colony, only to be caught by Darth Koopa's ship, the Koop Star. They fight off some Stormtroopas, followed by Koopa himself, but Koopa ends up freezing them. After having them thawed out, he gives Princess two options: Tell the colonists to surrender, or have their planet destroyed with his Birdo Ray. When Princess refuses to give up, the Birdo Ray is set to fire in thirty minutes, and Mario and Co get dropped into the Koop Star's trash compactor. Death Star Trench Run; Ex: Darth Koopa: I have you now, macaroni-mouth!; Tractor Beams; Lightsaber Plungers; Obi-Wan Toadi ; Princess: Just say the magic words, Luigi! May the pasta be with you!


  • In the episode titled "Simon Said", Sam and Dean track a psychic that can coerce people into doing whatever he says. This ability sparks familiar chords with Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope where Obi-wan Kenobi uses a similar method to evade capture from a group of Stormtroopers, so familiar in fact that the characters make references to the movie when the ability is used; Dean shouts "He full on Obi-Wan-d me! It’s mind control, man!" when the psychic "convinces" him to give him his car and, later, when the psychic helps Sam and Dean in finding some files in the county office, he convinces the guard to go get a cup of coffee, throwing in the line "These aren't the droids you're looking for" for good measure.
  • In the episode "Swap Meat", several Star Wars T-shirts can be seen in the boy Gary's bedroom.
  • In the episode "Pac-Man Fever", Charlie says to Dean, "I love you." Dean responds, "I know." This is the same as the famous exchange of the same lines between Leia and Han, before Han is frozen in carbonite.


  • Kit Cloudkicker's last name could be an analogue to the family-name "Skywalker".
    • Kit himself is also quite similar to Ezra Bridger.
  • The Overdrive on the Sea Duck is much like the hyperdrive on the spaceships, especially when both are used to make a getaway.
  • Don Karnage and Hondo Ohnaka share a lot in common, they even share voice-actor Jim Cummings.

Talkin' Bout Your Generation

  • Star Wars is often referenced in the show as it is one thing that is recognized by all generations.
  • One episode Guest Starred Graeme Blundell, who was the actor of Padmé Amidala's Father, Ruwee Naberrie in deleted scenes of Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith.

Teen Titans


You don't need to see Beast Boy's identification

  • In "Episode 257-494," super-nerd Control Freak takes the Titans into various TV shows, where he displays the powers of each genre. In a sci-fi series called "Clash of the Planets," there are numerous Star Wars references, including Control Freak becoming a Darth Vader-like figure with a lightsaber (the saber featured two different-colored blades ignited side by side) and telling his nemesis "I am your father." Beast Boy, an avid fan of "Clash," attempts to use Jedi mind powers is the Jedi mind trick. Temporarily donning Raven's Jedi robes and waving his hand, he intones, "You don't need our identification."
  • In the episode "Fear Itself", Control Freak takes over a video rental store. Raven responds to his lame actions by saying, "I'm petrified.", in which Control Freak responds, "You will be.. you will be.", quoting the same line by Yoda responding to Luke Skywalker on Dagobah in The Empire Strikes Back.
  • In the episode "Transformation", Starfire begins to morph into a stange creature, which ends up in her leaving Earth and travelling to several planets until she finally finds one to reside on. When the rest of the Teen Titans try to find her, they fly the T-Sub out of a creature with huge teeth that close down, almost eating them, a reference to when Han Solo flies out of the exogorth, or "space slug" in The Empire Strikes Back.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2003)

The Fairly Oddparents

  • In the original 7-minute pilot episode featured on Oh Yeah! Cartoons and also featured in The Adventures of the Crimson Chin and Cleft the Boy Chin Wonder, when Timmy's fairies send Vicky into space, they are seen both wearing Darth Vader helmets (without the mask portion) while piloting TIE Fighters. Wanda says "The Force is strong with this one" while Cosmo says "'I am your father!' I've always wanted to say that."
  • The TV movie "Abra Catastrophe!" begins with a parody of Star Wars, showing Timmy Turner fighting Darth Vader with lightsabers during on their battle on Bespin in The Empire Strikes Back. A spoof of Jar Jar Binks from Episode I makes an appearance shows up, but is thrown off the edge and the duel resumes. Later, Timmy is hanging on the platform. Vader tries to persuade him to join him on the Dark Side. Timmy says that he'll never join him. Timmy states that he didn't care about girls dig, he is 10. Vader cuts Timmy's hand off with a green lightsaber, Timmy says that he'd only got two of those. Vader mentions that Timmy get another hand, "a really cool robot one". Timmy starts catwalking and holding on the edge, and says "How did you know all this?" Vader says that "because I am your father", then lifts his mask, revealing he is Cosmo, one of Timmy's fairies, and says "Your godfather."
  • In "Movie Magic", (Star Wars Death Star trench run in Timmy's film.) (shot of Death Star-like Ball) "Red Leader. Red Leader, I'm starting my attack run on the Death Ball." "You've turned off your targeting computer, is something wrong?" "Yeah, there's a kid in here!" Timmy says, "Don't look at the camera, ugh. Can I get a professional in here." (Death Ball explodes)
  • Timmy Turner, Invader Zim and The Powerpuff Girls also appears in Lizzie McGuire, which has all Star Wars references
  • In "Hard Copy," Timmy makes a magical copy of everything in his catalogue, including "Space Wars" toys, resulting in "Dark Laser" (parody of Darth Vader) attempting to take over the world. Dark Laser reappears in "Escape from Unwish Island", "When L.O.S.E.R.S. Attack", and "Mission: Responsible."
  • In the same episode, there are several Droideka-like robots deployed by Dark Laser, two of which are destroyed when Wanda activates her lightsaber (which is her wand) (complete with sound effects) to deflect the blaster bolts fired at them. Also, Timmy pilots a "Starfighter" which closely resembles a Y-wing while wearing a helmet that clearly resembles a Rebel pilot's helmet. Later, Cosmo flies in at the last minute to save Timmy and Wanda in his own fighter (a green pet carrier), much like Han Solo's sudden reappearance in the Death Star battle in A New Hope. Dark Laser's ship is also called the Death Ball, an obvious parody of the Death Star.
  • In "Timmy TV", Wanda uses her fairy magic to freeze Cosmo in carbonite because he looks hideous at the moment, just like Darth Vader doing the same thing to Han Solo.
  • In "Father Time", Timmy's future self uses a lightsaber to bong Mr. Turner's trophy.
  • In "A New Squid in Town", Cosmo and Wanda are frozen in carbonite by an alien princess. Wanda is frozen like Han Solo, while Cosmo is frozen picking his nose. Luke trench run, visor drops down. Idiots in Love, carbonite Fairies.

  • In "Hex Games", features a scene in which Timmy is skating through the dense jungle, with Cosmo on his back saying "Learn to skate in difficult environments, you must!" a reference to when Yoda trained Luke in The Empire Strikes Back.
  • Wishology
    • Timmy is the "Chosen One" in reference to the fact that Anakin Skywalker is the Chosen One.
    • Wishology: The Exciting Middle Part is a complete parody of Star Wars:
      • Jorgen Von Strangle says "I just felt the disturbance in the Fairy Force, like a thousand fairies cried out in agony," which is directly spoof of a quote made by Obi-Wan Kenobi when Alderaan is destroyed by the Death Star in A New Hope.
      • On their way to Planet Frigidarium, the group dresses up as the main characters of Star Wars: Timmy is dressed as Luke Skywalker, Mark Chang as R2-D2, Dark Laser as Darth Vader, Mr. Crocker as Chewbacca, and Vicky as Princess Leia. Inside the cantina, Crocker clears his throat in a way that sounds like Chewbacca's voice. All the aliens inside resemble other characters from Star Wars.
      • Timmy ignites the lightsaber on his hand, this is the same sound effect in Episode IV.
    • The opening sequence of "The Final Ending" features text that briefly recaps the conclusion of the previous part of the Wishology story in the style of the Star Wars opening crawl.
