    From The Cleveland Show, "Nightmare on Grace Street" episode...

    Donnie, an annoying guy who wants to be Cleveland's friend, but Cleveland always blows him off tries hanging out with the Browns when they're trick or treating. At one house, Donnie jumps out and yells something to the extent of..

    "Trick or Trout! Ha HA ha Ha! No seriously, we want candy not fish...unless they're Swedish Fish [puts finger under nose like a mustache and does a bad Swedish Chef impersonation" Borkidy smorkdy borky doo..."

    or something like that. Point is, he did a bad Swedish Chef accent.

    Before someone watches this episode several years from now and posts it a HUNDRED times...

    The Swedish Chef was drawn into tonight's Simpsons in a dream Marge has. He was also in the promotional photo.

    Just saw the Modern Family episode where it starts off where the couple is getting into an argument with a dad about letting his kids see a violent horror film...then they realize oops, they accidentally were in the wrong theater...showing the new Muppet movie! Too hilarious! I swear Modern Family is one of the best newerish tv shows.

    Love that episode. And Lily's reaction later. "You saw the Muppets without me?" Priceless.

    (don't see why this is unstickyed)

    Here's an older one. From the 1996 Casper cartoon episode Three Ghosts and a Baby, Casper's regression therapy from Dr. Harvey turns him into a baby ghost. To which Dr. Harvey says, "Casper! You gotta turn back! The Muppet Babies will sue our pants off!"

    I hate that episode. I usually like Modern Family becuase it's brillinatly funny. But I can't believe Disney had their own show try to make fun of The Muppets when they're trying so hard to make older audiennces go to this movie.
  12. Muppet fan 123 Well-Known Member

    Ehh... while it was priceless I hate the whole episode. After she said that Mitchell says "No, we only stayed for the first two numbers" That's not the Muppets that's Sesame Street!!

    That wasn't the point at all. it was more like subliminal marketing. When the episode was first aired, the first commercial on the commercial break of that scene was The Muppets trailer. That was BRILLIANT marketing. They ran that trailer during Glee the break after that kid sang "It's not Easy Being Green."

    I was watching backlogs of the Colbert Report(Cause I can't watch them with my internet restrictions that I place on myself, long story, won't get into it) BUT, he had Bjork on and the beginning of his show he was introducing the segments and when he got to the guest, he pulled out 2 spoons and started imitating the Swedish Chef but added "Bjork Bjork Bjork"

    In the move The Gate, one of the key plot points is some symbols burning into one of those magic doodle things (with the plastic sheet on top and the clay stuff under it), and the one used in the movie was a Follow That Bird one. You can only see it briefly in one scene. They seem to try to hide the top of it whenever they show it.
  18. Muppet fan 123 Well-Known Member

    It's actually not. Adults are turned off by hearing that it's a kids movie and teaches numbers and letters.
  19. Drtooth Well-Known Member

    Scene from this week's American Dad... before it airs, too...

    I assume they're supposed to be the Muppet Babies considering Kermit and Animal's outfits.

    I saw a special screening of Argo last night. Very surprisingly, a movie about six American hostages escaping from Iran has a Muppet reference in it.
