Which is nonetheless a curse....
Did someone mention Pepe's malaprop for the movie Miss Congeniality 2?
Long John Silver saying, "Aw, h*ll, Jim!" isn't considered swearing?
XDDD This is from the At the Dance in the Lena Horne episode--
Miss Piggy: You know, my aunt has a chest that goes back to 1700...
Male Pig: Oh. Well, it must make it tough on your uncle...
Miss Piggy: Ye--
I have a question: What was Crazy Harry really doing in the "Chanson D' Amour" number in the Rich Little episode? Kind of makes ya wonder...
I thought you were referring to the speach long John was giving about the Black Spot that they used a page of the bible to make.
Anyway, they also said Bloody, which is a cuss word in Britain... but didn't they dub that out or something in the UK?
In the Harvey Korman episode of TMS, during his animal trainer sketch, he calls sweet, cute Thog a "black-hearted **** hound". Does that count?
I think "black hearted 'heck' hound" sorta counts. I dunno.
I think they did. I seem to recall having that conversation on here at one time.
I actually kinda forgot about that! That's one of the best parts of the movie. I think I had that speach memorized by the time I was 10.
In the John Denver episode of TMS, there's a lovely moment where Annie Sue says
"Mr Kermit Sir, when we get to the swamp wold you give me a swimming lesson?"
I can't remember exactly how Kermit replied, but...
When they said "Bloody" in MTI, it was redubbed "Bloomin' " in the UK. I'd have been shocked right outta my chair if someone said "Bloody" in a children's movie...
Hmmm... what about the line from MTM: "Somebody rent a room"? We all know what they're implying, but as a kid it went right over my head.
.... OH! For the honeymoon! I get it now.
Scarily enough, I swear I heard Bloody in several kid's shows. Including the cartoon version of Carmen Sandiego.
That's a good one, I never thought of it either!
Would this count? On the new SS website, there's a skit that has The Count as Countilocks who goes to visit the Three Bears, but finds out they've moved and a rabbit family has bought their home. He enjoys this more becasue"Every time she went to the house, there were more rabbits for her to count."
Let's not forget the "explosive" ending to the Koozebanian Mating Ritual sketch back in season 1. I'll bet there was a lot of laughing and giggling and nudge-nudging going on backstage during that one.
Yes, I'll rate Raquel Welch's duet with Fozzie as a "cheeky" moment...wonder how much ribbing Frank got from the others during that one? Not to mention the cold opening:
Scooter: You don't have to wear those skimpy, revealing costumes!
Raquel: Oh, really?
Scooter: Not unless you really want to.
Group of male Muppets in doorway: Oh, please want to!
On the somewhat tamer end of the spectrum:
Scooter: (swooning, and rubbing his cheek) She kissed me, right here!
Fozzie: (disgusted) Oh, why don't you go have your cheek bronzed or something?
Okay, there were a lot of "cheeky" moments on the Raquel Welch episode.
Oh, how about in MTM when Gonzo gives Camilla mouth to mouth, they ask if she's okay, and he replies...
"Yeah, but I think we're engaged now."
