I wonder if you're after Galactica 1980, a spin-off of the original Battlestar Galactica that was cancelled after 10 episodes. Airing in 1980, it featured the Galactica crew members reaching modern day Earth and trying to blend in.

I think you're after Runaway Bay (1992-1993) which aired on ITV, about a bunch of kids solving crimes in a hotel (that I'm almost sure belonged to the parents of one of them) on a Caribbean island. It also featured Naomie Harris in one of her earliest roles. Here's the intro (in which some of the music might sound like La Isla Bonita, I guess) and a few ...

Sounds like Hard Time on Planet Earth, a short-lived sci-fi show from 1989. Jesse, an alien is sent to Earth and finds himself in Los Angeles. His only companion is a floating, orb-shaped parole officer named Control.

That would be Nim's Island. The movie was based on a children's/young adult book of the same name and starred Abigail Breslin in the eponymous role, with Gerard Butler playing her biologist father, and Jodie Foster playing her hero/author. The movie itself had three main parts. The father goes on a trip to view/study bio-luminescence (either the plankton ...

Sounds like Turbo Teen from 1984, with a bit of a difference: Teenager Brett Mathews ran off the road during a thunderstorm into a too secret government facility hitting a lazer infusing him with his sports car. When hot he would morph into a sports car and cold back into a boy. His two friends, and his dog together would solve mysteries. So he turned ...

This sounds a lot like Alien Nation, which started in 1988. The human-like aliens do live among us, but they're out in the open, though there is also open discrimination against them. One of the aliens is a police officer and has a human partner. They can jump high, as I recall. Here's the IMDB page.

Since Doof Warrior and his "Marshall stacks" were not in any prior movie(s), there could be no parody of it, so the question cannot really be answered. However, a couple things come to mind that are 1) animated; 2) funny; and 3) metal.
