Discussion in 'Muppet Appearances' started by GuySmiley, Jun 1, 2002.
It'd make sense seeing as how one of them helped in the writing for IAVMMCM...
I heard There Was a Cookie Monster Virus, Eats All Your Files. A Friend Told Me This.
I wonder if Matt (Creator Of The Simpsons) Is a Big Muppet Fan Too.
Well, this isn't exactly a Muppet reference, but, on SNL, there used to be a segment called Morning Latte (with Cheri Oteri and Will Ferrell). Will Ferrell's character's name was Tom WILKINS, named after the coffee that the Muppets, Wilkins and Wontkins, used to advertise for.
There was one on "The Simpsons" a few weeks ago with Maggie's Elmo doll-"No Means No Elmo".
This isn't really a Muppet reference but I found this really cool so I'll share it anyways. On the first episode of Seinfeld the outside of the diner they're in is Pete's from the Muppets Take Manhatten. I was so excited when I observed that.
Yeah, that's one of my brother's favorites. Let's see what all I can remember that hasn't been mentioned here yet.
Full House: Quite a few "Sesame" references here. Of course we have Joey's Kermit impressions. Also, in an earlier episode (Jingle He**) Stephanie mentions that Joey and Jesse should be partners like Bert and Ernie. Then they both say, "No puppets." (Yes, I know that should have been Muppets.) Also, in the episode "Rock the Cradle," the family is playing Pictionary and Michelle keeps guessing big bird. Then when it's her turn she draws Big Bird (of course her drawing doesn't look much like Big Bird, but you know what I mean.) Later in that episode she asks if Jesse and Rebecca's baby is going to be a boy or a girl. Jesse says that's just what they'll call it until they find out if it's a boy, or a girl or a nine-foot yellow Muppet. (I know that's an error, because Big Bird is only eight feet.)
Hmmmm. Here's another one...
Sabrina, the Teenage Witch: Libby is turned into a puzzle and Sabrina has to find her missing pieces. She finds a collection of something with something else that doesn't fit in that collection. Then her Quizmaster starts singing "One of These Things Just Doesn't Belong Here."
I'm sure there are many more of them. I'll have to post here when I think of them.
There was one on Friends once where Monica and Pheobe are talking about some guy with a long, barely pronouncable name. Rachel comes in and hears them talking about this, and remarks, "Who's Mr. Snuffa-Snuffleupagus?"
A few more I thought of...
Sabrina the Teenage Witch: Episode "Do You See What I See?"
Sabrina: Miles still thinks Bert and Ernie were sent here by the supernatural.
Hilda: I wish those two would just come out and lay that rumor to rest! (Something, like that. I might have to check the transcripts page for the exact wording, but you see what I mean.)
Tom: Have they ever discussed pregnancy on "Sesame Street?"
Brad Garrett: Yes, it was with a character called the Nookie Monster.
Full House Episode "Divorce Court:" Two SS references here: Danny, Joey and Jesse have a race and bet that the winner chooses the costumes for the losers at the Halloween party. Joey remarks that he already picked out the costumes, "Big Bird meet Mr. Snuffleupagus." Also, later in that episode Stephanie said that sharing a room with Michelle is like "a nightmare on Sesame Street."
There used to be a show called "Bone Chillers" on ABC and at the end of an episode about a crazed ape, the school cook comes out with a stack of Banana Cream pies in his arms and sings out "TEN BANANA CREAM PIES!" And of course, he falls over and makes a mess.
Classic Sesame reference. Gotta love it.
I don't know if this one has made it into the list or not, and I'm not about to go back and read them all.
On "Animaniacs", in the short "Video Review" (available on the video "The Warner's Escape", "Muppet Family Christmas" is featured, with a very ugly Kermit and Piggy (who also make a cameo at the end).
(This post features the most quotations I've ever used in my life!)
It was mentioned a while ago, back on the first or second page. Hope this helps!
I didn't want to go thru the tons of posts, yet it was the second one. My bad for not even looking.
how come no one ever thoght of this?
INTER MUPPET MUPPET REFFERENCES!!!
First episode of the Jhh
Digit, while under the TV influence states, "Today's show was brought to you by the letter Friday, Joe Friday with more precipitation Saturday morning... and you are NO jack Kennedy"
On the episode where they have a Newspaper, they show a brief clip of Oscar the Grouch.
On another (I forget, it must have been last season) Fozzie and Gonzo were in a blimp, and they flashed a Picture of Big Bird.
Papa Bear picks out names for the new Baby.
"Lesse... Fuzzy...Wuzzy..Oooh! Fozzie!"
"That's a terrible name for a bear!!!"
(there are others, but I can't think of them)
On Hollywood Squares, Kermit Mentioned Bear in the Big Blue House
On Muppets at Walt Disney World, Piggy is astride a giant Nazi Plane, shooting Machine Guns at the Indiana Jones Exhibit, to which Kermit says, "How are we going to explane this to Big Bird?!?!"
What a great thread
Don't know if these were posted or not, I tried to read all the other posts, and didn't catch them:
In the MST3K Episode "Angels Revenge" Crow sees one of the extras killed in a shoot out, and says "they Killed Jim Henson" (he did sorta look like him)
The Blues Brothers
(literally) moments before the Mall car chase a patron in a toy store holds up a plush (either Grover or Cookie Monster) and asks "Do you have any Miss Piggy?"
An American Werewolf in London
During David's nightmare, where his house is attacked by Nazi Wolfmen, the family is watching the Muppet Show on TV
Into the Night
In (I think) the hotel Lobby, you can see Jim Henson on the phone, talking to Miss Piggy!
(also, Jeff Goldblume and Michelle Pfeiffer take a stroll down a very familiar looking street....
gosh, maybe John Landis is a closet Muppet Fan?
I'm not sure if this was brought up in an earlier post but Big Bird cameo'ed on the short-lived Dan Ackroyd show "Soul Man". I have this episode on tape, actually....(don't ask me why...lol)
Last night while I was watching tv during a Sister Sister rerun they made some obscure reference to Sesame Street, I can't really remember WHAT was said but I think it was along the lines of "they wouldn't do that on Sesame Street".
a young Homer Simpson (with some huge Drums that you would see in a marching band and talking to some young ladies) says "Hi, I'm Homer J. Simpson, You might know me as one of The Beatles, And I'm also Oscar The Grouch, So anyone want to go out with me? (young ladies walk away)
An Episode when people thought Krusty The Clown Was Killed because he flew his Plane into a cliff, In the funeral scene, One Of The People who was sitting down Had a Kermit Doll in her lap.
In a Simpsons Poster
The Poster when They Had A Huge Group Of The Simpson Characters, There's a Tiny Picture Of The Simpsons Version Of Kermit With a small Sigaret in his mouth. If You have or seen this poster, You Might Have To Play Where's Waldo or in this case Where's Kermit.
A man is trying to make a huge group of little girls (plus there all twins), then a guy picks up a Kermit Puppet and moving his mouth and he says in a stupid voice "Oh Look at the silly froggy, Look at The Silly Frogggggy!" then they show the girls just standing there frowning.
On the back of a Heavy Medal Music CD Cover
There's a Fire In The Background with a Huge happy mob and there's a guy on there holding a huge Ernie Doll On this shoulders.
Doesn't Frank do a cameo in almost all of Landis's movies?
This one's kind of fuzzy (a refference to a Sesame Street skit), but I'll counted as a Muppet Refference anyway
On Cow and Chicken, these two bullies were... uh.. bullying each other, and one sticks a banana in their mouth, the bully mumbles, to which the other replies...
"I cain't here you! You got a banana in your mouth!!!"
