The Cat From Outer Space (1978)
The spaceships that the cats travel in bear a striking resemblance to the spaceship that Jake the cat travels to Earth in.
Close Encounters of the Third Kind
Just after Morris Katz "meows" his signal, the mothership appears outside the Planet Express building. The mothership then signals back at Katz in very loud and deep tones which are forceful enough to break the second-floor window. This same thing happens the first time that the mothership "replies" to the keyboardist while on the back side of Devil's Tower in the classic 1977 movie.
To signal the flying saucer, Morris Katz mews the "Meow Mix" jingle.
