    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.

    And I still fail to see why they can't just build a new Johnny, they already rebuilt basically the entire cast back in 2010-ish.

    Yeah, and it's not like they haven't had to rebuild characters before, I mean heck, there are some Muppets that have to be replaced every 5-6 years, and some that have to be replaced every 10-12 years.

    Unless, perhaps, maybe, Johnny's being phased out and retired like some characters are over time. Or, it could also be to free Bill up since Rowlf and Dr. Teeth have been brought back to more prominent roles - all the while still performing Pepe and Bobo.

    When you think about it, Johnny (and by extention, Sal) didn't necessarily play that big a part within the context of the Muppets in general. Outside of MT, their biggest roles in a Muppet project seemed to be MOz; other than that, their roles in others seem to be very minor and small. Were they even in LTS? I don't even remember.

    I honestly doubt anyone working with The Muppets really remembers him aside from Bill Baretta.

    An old SNL reference not mentioned on the Wiki. During one of the SNL News Breaks (with Brian Doyle-Murray) during the show's rather dull 7th season ('81-'82), there was a joke about Big Bird being shot by a kid during a Sesame live appearance. What's notable about this reference is that it features actual footage from a Sesame cast tour - during the early days, at Matt Robinson is featured.

    On the British sitcom, The I.T. Crowd, Roy was wearing a Kermit shirt and somebody called him asking,
    "Where's my bloody money?" and then he said,
    "Just kidding ya Muppet!".

    On The Simpsons, Chief Wiggum said something about how "a bunch of Muppets can take Manhattan". I don't remember the rest of the reference, but that was pretty much the main part.

    It's really funny looking up these strange Muppet references.
