    Last night on Two Broke Girls, the power went out in the diner and Han comes out wearing a head lamp. Max then reacts by saying "You look like one of the Doozers from Fraggle Rock." Say what you will about that show, but they contributed to the ever elusive Fraggle Rock reference.

    Last night's premiere episode of The $100,000 Pyramid hosted by Michael Strahan had one of the contestants describe Muppets. Kermit was the first clue given, which was correctly guessed.

    On the show First Impressions, somebody impersonated Kermit on the first episode.

    Way to blow a perfectly good Skesis reference on your terrible, unfunny sketch cartoon, Brad Neely.

    I was watching The Cleveland Show this morning and Cleveland said,
    "Nobody remembers Oscar the Grouch, they remember his puppeteer Caroll Spinney,"
    That made me laugh SO hard, :wisdom::grouchy:

    Whose Line Is It Anyway. There were multiple references in the American version to both The Muppets and Sesame Street. Some references in the British version as well. There are even still some references on the current revival of Whose Line today.

    Today's episode of Millionaire had a Sesame Street-related question about what the name of Sonia Manzano's character was, with the answers being "Maria", "Susan", "Linda", and "Gina". Thankfully, the contestant got it right despite knowing very little about the show, earning him $5,000.

    On the Family Guy season premiere, it showed a cutaway of Kermit, Miss Piggy, and Scooter. Piggy said that she had a frog in her throat and Kermit poked her in the ribs replying,
    "Have you been drinking too much?" or something like that, I'll admit it's not the best Muppet parody on Family Guy, but hey, at least it's something!

    I was watching We Bare Bears and Ice Bear held up what looked like a Fozzie doll.

    In tonight's episode of Fresh Off the Boat, the B-plot had Louis get some newly-bleached teeth that became blindingly white. The grandmother called Louis (the father) "your favorite Muppet, Dr. Teeth" when presenting him to the kids. :D

    On Family Guy, Meg became a foot fetish model and was upstairs stomping. Lois asked something along the lines of "What is that racket, Peter?" Meg came downstairs wearing huge shoes and Peter said "I thought it was Junior Gorg from Fraggle Rock,".

    Three more of my favorites from Family Guy:
    -Carl asked a guy at the dinner table "Have you ever seen Jim Henson's Labyrinth?"
    -Peter bought Chris a shirt of Kermit dressed like a gangster.
    -Stewie echoes "PIGS IN SPACE!" in his head.

    Not so much a reference as the fact that :mad: just appeared on the Tony Bennett 90th Birthday Tribute special busting Regis Philbin and Don Rickles as cheap imitations of :boo: and :sleep:. She even told Don she didn't find him to be her type ever since she "stopped dating guys who look like frogs".

    So yeah, year-old reference to that big brake-up for last year's The Muppets 2015 series.
    Guess :rolleyes: "Because... Love" campaign flopped in Thailand giving us some closure for that final episode. *Shrugs.

    And hey! Where's the real Muppet devotee of Tony Bennett? The guy what owns the exclusive record of Sergeant Tony's Lonely Hearts Club Band, that came out before those other guys... :skeptical:

    I cannot believe how ungrateful Tony is! He would've never made it to his 90th birthday if Miss Piggy hadn't saved his life last month on the Thanksgiving float, but does Miss Piggy get a thank you? No! :mad:
    Man, it would've been so awesome if he had been there.

    The Johnny Fiama puppet is apparently "toast," so no chance of him appearing in any form any time soon.

    Johnny and Sal were such a great duo, shame they didn't get much fame and weren't used outside of MT and small scenes in MFS, VMX, and MWoOZ.
