6. Animaniacs, "Variety Speak" (1995)
Medium: TV series
Steven Spielberg's witty '90s cartoon often featured skits that parodied Hollywood, like this musical number that decodes trade magazine Variety's Tinseltown-term loaded headlines. One of the cutaways imagines Oliver Stone directing a Home Alone sequel for the check. Of course, the scribe behind Scarface would stick a machine gun in Kevin McCallister's hands for his take.
