This is the thread where we discuss whenever a Disney comic references something that is not owned by Disney or was not at the time. For example, the 2000 Egmont story "Battle Beasties" is a reference/parody of Pokemon.
Korhonen's "Beam Me Up, Mr. Fargone": Star Trek. Not a direct parody--there are no versions of the famous central Star Trek characters. More of an homage to the Star Trek phenomenon, show + fan conventions.
Solstrand's "Temping Trouble": Harry Potter. Magica De Spell temps at what is clearly a Disney-comics version of Hogwarts, complete with central characters.
"A Última Flor do Cosmos" has a reference to "2001: A Space Odyssey": a robot that becomes kind of mad, in one of the last squares says "everyting began with a relative of mine, who encontered a black monolith".
"Zé nas Estrelas" is a spoof of Star Wars, from 1997 (at that time, I think Star Wars was not yet owned by Disney)
