FunRoms are mentioned several times in Star Control II. The first reference is made by Fwiffo, stating that the "SOS message in alien language" from the Moon Base was nothing more than a Melnorme FunRom called "Winky´s Happy Night".
Another possible reference is made by "normal" Spathi captains, and refers to a "Cool Entertainment Product" involving a grand adventure through space etc., in effect being a reference to Star Control II itself. Some have suspected that this is a FunRom.
Also, Tanaka claimed that his life was over, because in addition to his race being dead and his world being an airless rock, he had seen all of his FunRoms over a hundred times. This mood changed only when the captain told him that he had "something better than FunRoms" on board after returning from Admiral ZEX.
