    No, but it's probably why they chose the name. *shrugs*

    Well, the reason I'm saying it was the face he's making and not the title was the bit under the video where KirbTreelo added "Dat face" :p

    I just have a hard time believing that the muppets were the first to use The Great ____ Caper for anything. But maybe they were. I dunno. *shrugs*

    On "Man vs. Food: Nation", the host, Adam Richman, made a voice similar to The Count and said "Eight, eight slices of cheese!" and performed something close the The Count's signature laugh.

    Yeah, I totally thought of Beaker when I saw that. Also his hyperventilating kinda sounded like he was doing something similar to Beaker's voice. :eek:

    I dunno, maybe it's just me *shrugshrugshrug*

    That was Greg Proops! I think it was either Collin, or Ryan (or it might've been Wayne Brady who said that last bit!)

    This isn't exactly a Muppet reference, but I found it very funny.

    In an episode of "Once Upon a Time" (I think it was Season One, episode 13), David/Prince Charming is in the hospital when a doctor tells him he is going to tranfer him to Dr. Hopper, who's the head doctor there.

    Doc Hopper! That really made me laugh. :laugh:

    Here's another odd comic book reference. I didn't even get this one until I saw the screen shot of the page and I own the issue...

    Ugh... I can't find it.

    Anyway, in one of the issues of Darkwing Duck (forget which one), Quacker Jack either hides out in or attacks a store called "Clint Wacky's Joke Shop."

    Clint Wacky, you see, is the character from The Muppet Show Comic Book: On the Road that was a very nasty comedian beloved in the town of Little Statwald.

    Yep... an interlicense comic reference to a comic book only Muppet character.

    I saw an episode of Spongebob where Spongebob and Patrick make a movie and Sandy is in charge of special effects and she keeps going "Did somebody say "Boom"?" which is reminiscent to Crazy Harry, I don't know if anybody else mentioned it though.

    One thing I want to mention is that they had a clue on Jeopardy! about names with "Iggy" in the name and one of the clues was "she played first mate to Captain Link Hogthrob." Of course we know who that was: :mad:. Surprisingly none of the contestants got it. I guess they're not big Muppet fans like us.

    I just saw an episode of The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy on Netflix where Irwin was walking down the street in the middle of the night saying, "A quart of milk, a loaf of bread and a stick of butter" which similar to the classic animated skit, "A loaf of bread, a container of milk and a stick of butter" from Sesame Street. Not exactly a Muppet reference, but something that Muppet fans are familiar with nonetheless.

    Yeah. It's pretty evident the writers had that in mind, but like we were talking about on the other thread, they may have just worded it differently to avoid copyright infringement.

    I was watching an old episode of "The Big Bang Theory" & 2 of the guys were acting like goths. . One was saying he was going to get a tattoo of either a snake or Kermit the Frog on his butt. Then he started doing :)'s voice! (he didn't get a tattoo after all)

    I remember that one. That was Howard (Simon Helberg). There was another episode where the guys were going to a costume party as superheroes (Raj got stuck being Aquaman). Something went wrong (can't remember what), so they considered going to the party as the Muppet Babies.
    Raj: I get to be Kermit!
    Sheldon: No, I'm Kermit. You're Scooter.
    Raj: But Scooter sucks! He's the Aquaman of the Muppet Babies.

    Which is a big load. Considering Scooter's talent with computers at an early age and the fact that the world now pretty much revolves around computers then Scooter had a very bright future ahead.
