In the Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers episode "Pound of the Baskervilles", a parody of Sherlock Holmes named Sureluck Jones was created and was the main character hero of the novels Chip read and admired.

In the Phineas and Ferb episode "Elementary My Dear Stacy", Candace and Stacy read the entire collection of the Sherlock Holmes books and decides to use Holmes' method of deduction with Stacy's help to bust Phineas and Ferb's activity: A water-slide. As usual, though the waterslide disappeared before Candace and Stacy could get to Linda and Winifred.

In the Gravity Falls episode "Headhunters", Sherlock Holmes appears as a malicious living wax statue that tries to murder Grunkle Stan for having locked him and the other wax statues away when they stopped making him money. He ends up decapitating Mabel's wax figure of Stan instead. When Dipper and Mabel fight off the wax statues, Dipper lures Holmes to the roof of the Mystery Shack, leading him to be melted by the light of sunrise. Holmes was voiced by John Oliver.
