"Hit the road, Jack" is a very popular song and used in plenty of films and TV.

But that list doesn't include any SciFi or fantasy movies or TV. That's not conclusive - I know the Wikipedia list is incomplete because it didn't include my favorite use, from "Failure to Launch". Despite its name it's a romcom, not an astronaut movie so it doesn't count.

Was it ever used in a SciFi or fantasy movie or TV at all? If so, which one was the first one to use it?


It's listed on the soundtracks of Escape from New Jersey and Ella Enchanted. I'm not sure if Space Cowboys count as SciFi.
