    I'm watchting the debut of the Spaceballs cartoon and they just showed the part where Yogurt is abandoned by Dark Helmet, he claims "it's not easy being choses, or green." And before, during a space-pod race, I think I saw some giant Yip-Yip Martians in teh crowd.

    Spotted on a Flix comedy this morning

    This morning I was watching an old movie called "My Brother the Pig", in which a girl's younger brother gets transformed into a pig--and has to travel to Mexico with her nanny to find the one person who can reverse the spell. What does this have to do with Sesame Street? Well, when they'd reached Mexico, this bit of dialogue took place:

    PIG-BOY'S FRIEND (who wasn't fluent in Spanish otherwise): Buenos días, ¿como estás?
    PIG-BOY'S OLDER SISTER (irritated): Where did that come from?
    PIG-BOY'S FRIEND: Sesame Street.
    PIG-BOY'S OLDER SISTER (sarcastically): Oh, great...Did Elmo teach you how to say "Please help us turn my brother back into a boy"?

    Here's a great SS refference from Eek the Cat, delivered by Weird Al Yankovic Himself in an episode called The Fug-eek-tive

    "To quote a heavily Copyrighted children's show, One of these things is Not like the others!"

    I can't believe I forgot to add this, but last night on The Office (the one with Jan's Baby Shower) an Elmo pillow and a large Big Bird plush are visible at the shower. Of course, you could only plainly see Big Bird's side for a second... but there's no mistaking that big yellow shape.

    Grover in Casablanca

    Grover with Cleo from Between the Lions in an ad for PBS Kids "Ready to Learn" initiative. it's funny how SS has been mimicking advertisement format so well in the show for 40 years that now they're pretty good at making real ads!

    Another one from the DIC version of the Bill and Ted's excellent Adventures cartoon show...

    In "Misadventures in Babysitting" Bill and Ted go back in time to babysit themselves so they can stop their younger selves from breaking an electric guitar that Bill's dad once owned. In one scene the younger Bill and Ted are watching TV and screaming "We wanna watch Big Bird." The older Ted says, "no, you don't wanna watch Big Bird, you wanna watch Music Videos!"

    Speaking of which, Everybody Hates Chris had an episode where some really tall girl no one liked started dating Chris, they called her Big Bird. At the end, Chris blows her off, she gets a makeover and she moves to Paris, just before telling Chris off. At the end Chris Rock narrates: "Today's show was brought to you by the letters, D, A... [etc to spell a certain cuss word]"

    Ever watch "Drawn together"? They had a reference to the Yip Yip Martians in one episode. In one scene, there's a phone, and when the phone rings these 4 characters in the show do a reference by acting like the Yip Yip martians, and they all look like they have the mouths of the martians! BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRING! BRRRRRRRRRRRRRIING! YipYipYipYipYipYipYipYipYipYipYipYipYipYipYipYip UH-HUH! UH-HUH!

    Ok! Cancel that last post I just made. Apparently someone beat it to me, and I for one am pleased that South Park does (on occasion) sesame street references!

    Here's one that totally floored me. In the 10th anniversary Powerpuff Girls special (Powerpuff Girls Rule) they made a pretty obscure reference.

    The plotline involves the key to the world (like a Key to the city, and whoever possesses it rules the world) getting lost, and all the villains are rushing to find it.

    They DIRECTLY reference the SS Some of Us skit seen here, even mimicking the music and movements of the characters. The narrator even says something to the extent of "Yes, all of the bad ones, all of the slimey one, all of the icky ones..." just like the skit.

    I do recall an episode of Daria where there is an SS reference, about (If I remember right) refering to a group of other people, wherein she speaks to the camera exclaiming that "One of these things is not like the others".

    Last night's Simpsons episode had costumed versions of Big Bird, Elmo and The Count waiting fro a hockey game to finish so they could start their Sesame Street Ice show.

    not a tv reference, but there isn't a thread for radio... but yesterday (april 11) was the 101st day of the year, so at the end of All Things Considered on NPR, they played the ss funky chimes and had elmo announce that the day's sponsors were the number 101 and the letters n, p, and r. you can hear it here on their website.

    Hmm... plays at a much slower tempo than usual.

    Also, I'd like to know the actual name of that song.

    If reruns count--

    On an episode of "Sabrina, the Teenage Witch" that I saw this morning, Sabrina and Harvey used a monkey puppet to liven up an oral report on endangered species. A classmate (who spotted Sabrina in the hall later) sarcastically asked: "Can you tell me how to get to Sesame Street?"

    I remember seeing an episode of the Beverly Hillbillies which I can't remember what it was about but whoever the guest was Granny mentions who Jed or the other 2 He watches SS.

    The BH's ran from 1962-1971 so this had to have been from the last 2 years of its run.

    Maybe somebody else has more info.
