    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.

    It's actually not. Adults are turned off by hearing that it's a kids movie and teaches numbers and letters.

    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.

    Mitchell said to her "We only stayed for the first two numbers"
    THAT'S PICTURES IN MY HEAD!

    No, not musical numbers.
    They meant numbers as in Sesame Street and how they teach numbers and letters. And that wasn't funny. I am still annoyed by that episode to this day
  10. conburke621 New Member

    Oh, okay. I don't really understand where exactly they implied it was like, 1,2,3 numbers, I assumed they meant musical numbers, because Cameron and Mitchell are such huge musical fans. But, it looks like you know what you're talking about

    In the latest Jeff Dunham special "Minding the Monsters", Jeff commented on Bubba J's vampire costume by saying he looks like The Count from Sesame Street, except for the fact that he only has one vampire tooth for his costume.

    In The Big Bang Theory, one of the characters, Amy, after her two only girl friends betrayed her, said "It's like Sesame Street said, one of the things it's not like the others, one of the things should die alone".

    Tonight, The Simpsons AND Family Guy had references to the Muppets in it.
    The Simpsons: Apparently, Sesame Street had something about how banks are NOT safe. "Kermit the Frog and the Frog in the trench coat are the same person?" "All of the frogs on that show are Kermit"(or something to that effect.
    Family Guy: Statler and Waldorf in Fords Theater.

    In Tower Heist, the Muppets are mentioned twice. First, there is a Kermit the Frog balloon in the Macy's Parade, and in the background, "Disco Frog" is playing. Later, they mention how Miss Piggy was cut from the parade. That's a coincidence, because the Muppets were supposed to be in the parade last year, but it wasn't televised. I'm not sure if they were cut or not.

    How come they ALL end in childhood favorite getting killed?

    The Swedish Chef one was funny though.

    Was just watching 100 years ofthe royal variety peformance and it showed a clip of the muppets with floyd,robin,kermit, miss piggy, fozzie, gonzo, rowlf and scooter and then showed a short interview with miss piggy

    Here's one we totally overlooked because it was a deleted sequence...

    Family Guy TOTALLY referenced the Mad Painter



    It comes in at 5:29 and lasts barely a couple seconds. I think that's his actual voice too. Be sure to watch the scene with James Woods after it. It becomes a Brick joke.

    And another comes in at 9:58. Lois explains that they're tight on money and have to get diapers at the bodega. Stewie replies "Where is Oscar the Grouch? Who is Jose the Grump?"

    On tonight's episode of Wipeout, one co-host asked if John Henson's father created the Muppets, but he's obviously the wrong John Henson. Then there was a contestant whom they keep mentioning about Muppets like Elmo and Gonzo and she even made an Ernie and Bert reference with a "fishy, fishy, fishy" statement, in homage to that famous sketch.

    I don't know if this has already been mentioned yet, but two parodies from CN's Mad:
    Cookie Blue, featuring Cookie Monster as a cop in a "Rookie Blue" spoof, and "Ribbitless", a satire of The Muppets (2011) and Limitless.....





    Does anyone else have any other notable CN Mad Muppet references?
