    There is also an old "Mother Goose and Grimmy" comic strip which I have on my wall where Grimmy is trying to perform a puppet by saying "what is the top of a house called?" the puppet responds: "woof" and then Grimmy looks at the reader abd says, "hey, Jim Henson had to start somewhere!"

    In the Peter Sellers movie Being There, Sesame Street is seen on a TV set. To be exact, it's a clip from #1037, where Buffy sings to Big Bird.

    I dowloaded and old episode of Mystery Science theatre 3000, who have made many muppet references which I can't exactly remember. but this episode was called "Deathstalker and the Warriors from ****." and they saw the bad guy and Mike said "he looks like Sam the American Eagle"

    lol, I dont think there's ever been a Sam reference

    Re: MST3K

    As I think many MuppetCentral long-timers know, I am a very big MSTie.

    Once I have every episode (I have about 95 now, so I still have a ways to go), I'm going to go through and find all the direct Muppet refs and send them into Ward E at the Info Club. :)

    One of my favorites? On the New Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles show, Michaelangelo said, "As a Wise Frog once said, 'it's not easy being green!' He didn't know the half of it!"

    On some episode oof My wife and Kids (I dislake the show, so I wasn't paying attention) Damian said someone looked like a frog, then called him Kermit, and did a bad impersonation of him....

    oh is that the one with:

    "water, water..."
    "oil, oil..."
    "roomservice, roomservice..."?

    Has this been listed yet?

    The other night, I was watching a rerun of That '70s Show. The title of the episode was "That '70s Musical". Anyhoo, they started the episode out by singing "Sing a Song" from Sesame Street. It was "pitchy neat."

    I got one.

    Die Another Day:

    Jinx: Are you here for the penguins or just the veiw?

    There!!! A muppet reference!!!

    Also in So Long and Thanks For all the Fish by Douglas Adams there is a reference to a lumonous Kermit doll!!!

    I was just watching "I Love the '80s-1982" and Michael Ian Black is summing up "Rocky III" by saying-

    "The plot of 'Rocky III' is as follows: Sylvester Stallone appears on 'The Muppet Show' , Mr. T is in it, and Rocky fights Mr. T."

    They even had Kermit looking out of the O!:)

    This is a computer game reference, but what the hey:

    In Worms: Armageddon, at least for some of the voice banks, when you attack someone with Air Strike, one of the possible things your worm will say into the walkie-talkie to call in the air strike is "Come in, Big Bird!"

    Of course, there's the Everwood reference. The one girl on Everwood always used to call Ephrim "Grover."

    I just got Family guy on DVD, so I know all the muppet references from season one and two.

    From the episode the_great_gonzo was talking about:
    (MEG and PETER are sitting on a bench in New York by an Ice Rink)
    MEG: (Birdcalls)
    (3 Seconds of silence)
    BIG BIRD: Yeah, what'd want?
    (Awkward silence from MEG and PETER)
    BIG BIRD: You called me, right?
    MEG: (half chuckling) No, I-
    BIG BIRD: Oh, so this is funny to you? I can't fly, you know. I have to take the subway. Oh, I don't get stares. You make me sick (Spits on MEG, walks away) *****.

    From The episode when the Griffins get their own reality show, and Meg is replaced by a sexier girl.
    (The following has the camera look of MTV's The Real World. Chris is playing outside in the sprinkler as the camera films he and Peter)
    PETER (With puppet MADAME, of "Solid Gold") : Hey, Camera guy, watch this! (to MADAME) Madame, your a lusty old broad!
    PETER as MADAME: Darling, you're the one with your hand on my backside!
    (The Camera now follows the more interest "MEG" as she joins CHRIS in the sprinkler)
    PETER: Hey come back here! She's gonna sing "Rainbow Connection!"

    Okay... did anyone bring this up yet?

    King of the Hill: Bobby Kisses a plastic head for refference on how to kiss for a party.

    Hank: You're the one sitting him down in front of those Muppets! They got Pigs Kissing Frogs... no wonder!

    (or something to that extent)

    Plus on Mad Tv, there was a sketch in which someone was Anna Nichol Smith and she saw herself in the Televisions and said, "Look! It's a celebrity! It's Miss Piggy!"

    I remember one from Whose Line Is It Anyway, they're doing one of those things where the style keeps changing and it was something about killer bees I think, they change to the style of Sesame Street and one of the guys says in a Bert voice "Can you spell Bee?" and another says in an Ernie voice "You can't spell B, Bert, it's only one letter!"
  16. Super Scooter New Member

    I brought that out on another thread, but not on this one.

    There's a lot of Simpsons Ones........

    The Episode When The Simpson Family Is Watching a Muppet Movie With (I Hope I Can Spell His Name Right) Troy Maclure.

    A Quick Scene in a episode When Bart Make A Bad Joke On Ernie & Bert, He said that they were (You Know)

    (Again, I Don't know why people think that thought)

    A episode when The Simpsons go on vacation to another country, they show a wall with a sesame street sign in a different language and plays that last cobble of music notes of the theme with trumpets.

    A Young Homer Simpson saying to a crowd of people "Hi, I'm Homer Simpson, You may remember me as one of The Beatles, And I'm also Oscar The Grouch :grouchy: "

    The Garbage Man Episode When They make a spoof on the Willy Wonka Song "The Candy Man" into "The Garbage Man"
    In the song there were Simpsons characters (Ned Fladders, Apu, Sideshow Mel & A Spoof On Oscar With A Green Fur And A GREEN EYEBROW THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN BROWN) come out of the Trash cans singing "who can, who can, who can, who can !"

    And That episode when PBS Attacks Homer

    If there is anything I missed, Please let me know. :)

    Luke-Skywalker-like character: Who are you?
    Yoda-like thing: I am a puppet! Yeees!
    Luke-Skywalker-like character: ... What?
    Yoda-like thing: From the floor the man does control me! Yeees!

    I heard That The Simpson Writers are big huge fans of The Muppets. And can The PBS attacks Homer Episode Mean that The Writers Love The Muppets But Not too big on Sesame Street ?

    In the season finale of Curb your Enthusiasm, Larry injures a food critic in a dodge ball game. Later he goes to apologise to the man whose arms are in full casts after breaking his thumbs. The critic says "I look like a @#$%ing Muppet!".
