Adventure Time references in The Simpsons
In the episode Treehouse of Horror XXV, multiple knockoff versions of The Simpsons, produced by other franchises started walking up to the door. One of which was a group of Simpsons that looked like Adventure Time characters. Homer looked like the Ice King, Marge looked like Princess Bubblegum, Bart looked like Finn, Lisa and Maggie looked like Fionnas, and Santa's Little Helper looked like Jake.
In Monty Burns' Fleeing Circus, the episodes couch gag is meant to be a parody on the Adventure Time theme song, with Adventure Time versions of The Simpsons content. The original singer of the Adventure Time theme song, Pendleton Ward, even provided the voice for the parody song that went along with it.
