    Fraggle I-raq.....I started laughing so hard when I heard it. XD And then Ernie and Bert, pretty awesome. They got the character look down pat for it too. Won't say how they were portrayed in American Dad though. ;)

    lol, Fraggle I-Raq. That's good. I think you're right, I think that they go on these message boards. Ya never know, I have seen more than one Electric Company reference on there. I can't remember where though, I think it was in the episode where Peter starts the church of the Fonz and they had Stewie as a pinball counting to 12. I could be wrong.

    I heard about this from a friend who heard the joke on the radio (promo for the episode).

    Personally, I would have loved to have seen it go down like this..

    Brain: Where getting sent to Iraq?!?

    Stewie: (annoyed) Who wants to bet we're going to wind up in Fraggle Rock?

    Then of course, there'd be the President talking about how the Doozers are building weopon s of mass distruction, or something.

    Besides that, I always found it peculair. Every time Family Guy isn't really funny, American Dad is.

    Even though it was the same tired "Ernie and Bert are gay" joke, it still was hillarious. That was overall a great episode. Family Guy was good, but I think, like most episodes, it Petered out (no pun intended) in the 3rd act.

    But the thing about Mickey Rooney going nuts and shouting at mice with his shirt off, and stealing people's scabs was great. And That Gregory peck thing was funny too.

    I got some more ideas:

    *Peter is a contestant on Guy Smiley's game show

    *Yip-Yips appear

    *Peter looks at what he thinks is a map of where his "enemies" are, but it turns out that it's a page from a Sesame Street coloring book, with some activity where you have to help Big Bird, Oscar, Ernie and The Count find their way to their homes.

    *Stewie sticks his head into a mousehole and sees the Fraggles, who remark "What is that strange hideous thing?"


    ...or maybe do a scene referencing to Labyrinth?

    OR, they can do something where Peter says "This is almost as bad as when I was an inventor" and then they show him as the old guy from Fraggle Rock and Brian as Sprocket. Then you see Brian catch Gobo or something like that.

    They should do the Drark Crystal.

    Someone can make a reference to how a bad situation reminds them of when they were on the DC planet. Cut to a scene where Peter is one of the Podlings and the Slave Master is trying to to suck out his lifeforce, but Peter keeps farting instead.

    Or Peter can take the place of Jen when they are being cornered by the spider drones. Kira grabs onto Peter to save them, but he tries to look up her gown instead.

    Then there are many sexual inneudos that can be done with the Dark Crystal and the shard.

    I remember a forum was writing their own Family Guy clips and I wrote a few of my own. Here's one I wrote.


    The Griffins are in New York and Lois ends up losing her cell phone. Peter calls out to Lois from inside a phone booth.

    "Hey, don't worry, Lois", calls out Peter, "Look, here's an empty telephone booth."

    All these furry monsters charge up and shout, "AN EMPTY TELEPHONE BOOTH!", and they cram into the booth with Peter. Then the monsters run out of the booth screaming while covering their eyes. And it shows Peter with a can of mace.

    "Crazy college monsters", laughed Peter.

    ...have the rest of the new eps started airing yet? I've not heard one word of a new Muppet reference from that here lately.

    I think they should do something that shows a Life Skills class in the James Woods High School, and one of the special-needs students is ANIMAL! My brother joked that Animal probably was in Life Skills class when he went to school.
     
  11. They could do....

    Like: You could have Peter say "This reminds me of when I got kicked out of that underground theropy group." And it shows Peter sitting i a Cercle with The Fraggle Five, Peter wrapped in moss roap with Boober's scarf around his eyes.. Gobo says "Peter do you have anything you would like to say about what you have done?", Im sorry! It was a joke, I didn't think anybody would actually die" than the camera pans right to show a giant mouse trap with Boober in it.

    Or, Peter convicing Wembley to go get Gobo's postcard saying "Its fine, when i see the old man i'll give a signal" and than pushes him into the work shop. And when he sees Doc he yells "KAKA KAKA!" Wembley starts to run and Doc pulls out a shot gun and shoot at him...or does and all this cotton fly's everywere.

    Or, Chris says "This reminds me of the time I lived under Ground" and it does the whole opening to Fraggle Rock, but its Chris running down the cave and turs with "Dance your Care Away!" than when it gets to Jr's part it Herbert. And he reaches in a says "MMmmmmm I smell a young boy" and pulls him out and goes to eat him.

    Or Peter and Stewie are hunting or camping or something and Peter falls in a whole in the ground and lands on a Fraggle. You see like a orange hand sticking out from under Peter twitching. Than he has to find away to get out. So He finds Red and Wembley and gets there help. OR, you know how the sometimes mix real life? Have them go to Docs workshop and when they push peter cause he is fat, threw the Fraggle Hole he lands in the real workshop, get a sprocket puppet and Gerry Parks. And Peter and Stewie just walk out as Doc watchs them. He looks at Sprocket and says "I know for years you have been trying to get me to beleive there were creatures behind that hole in the wall, but that was not what I was expecting" Than sprocket lets out a wimper sigh and lays his head back down.

    Or Labyrinth like have peter say "Remember when I had to rescue Stewie from that man with the crystal balls?" Cut to Peter in the stair room running up and down with stewie walking and crawling an opposite sides.

    Or Dark Crystal and Lois says "Peter I don't think you can ride a horse...remember what happened last time when we needed to take the Land Striders?" cuts to Lowis on a Landstriders backs with the Dark Crystal Music in the backround. the camera goes slowly back and than speeds up as if its going back a long ways and catchs up with Peter, His Land Stider is walking and its kneen are shaking and its eyes are wide and bloodshot and its panting and sweating. And Peter says "Come up Landstrider, and stards singing "Da dadadaaa da da da da dada daaaa" the theme music.

    OR on th part were i said "Remember when I had to rescue Stewie from that man with the crystal balls?"

    He goes to an orobic class with lois and he sees the instructer and he is it spandex and big hair with a cape. And he says "Hey....how do I know that guy"....thinks for a minut than cuts to the room of stairs. Back to Peter saying "why you" runs towards him like he is going to kick his a$$. Jerath leans back and pulls out his Crystals and rolls them on his hands to destract peter. He runs off. and the crystals drop. He jumps out the window and turns into an owl and flys away. Later in that Episode you could have An owl fly into a window and give a letter to Happy potter, and have Ron say "Yow nowt Hedweg" than it shows the owl upclose his eyes open wide than look back and forth than shows zoomed out and he pulls out the crystals and they watch in a trase than he flys away.
     
  12. What do you think?

    All those sound more like "Manatee Jokes" to me. You need something that illudes to that. Like them having mice in the house or something and them catching a Fraggle. He throws it away, and says "Dang Fraggles" Or, if you really wanted to do one, Lois can have a garden and the radishes be missing, they look and see Mokey trying to steal one. Or on the Garden one, they can have a Gorg-crow. I mean, they can even have something where they have "Pinochi-onzo" Where Gonzo's nose grows everytime he tells a lie or something. I dunno, sounded good.

    (imitates Peter Griffin) You think THAT'S bad? Remember the time when Jerry Nelson performed Miss Piggy?
    (flashback to 1974 with "Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass" segment with Hoggie Marsh and the early Miss Piggy) :p

    Holy Cow! Remember The two Noses Gag?
    (Flashback to 1969 with one of the Sesame Street Test shows when Ernie and Bert talks about parts of the Face)

    They just had a Yoda reference...

    (Not technically a Muppet, but whoever did the voice did a pretty good Yoda).

    Here's one... They could have a scene when Brian recalls being a drug dealer for some inner City Street(Sesame Street). Then cuts to a scene when Bert, Ernie, Grover, Cookie Monster, and Elmo were willing to buy some which results in a street fight. Does that sound good or what? :) ;)

    They could be in a bad part of town and then you hear "Psst" and Brian goes to investigate, and then you see Oscar ask if they wanna buy some weed or if they wanna get high, Brian says no, then Oscar says, want some bootleg DVDs, Brian says no and goes away, then Oscar curses them out. Either that, or Oscar in anger Management. THAT would be interesting to see.

    THEY JUST DID ANOTHER MUPPET REFERENCE ON "FAMILY GUY!"

    Kermit and the Swedish Chef both appeared. They had the wrong voices as a joke. Kermit sounded like a black guy and the Swedish Chef had a lisp! The background was the same kind seen on "The Muppet Show!"

    Jim Henson reference

    They just had a reference to Jim Henson, Swedish Chef and Kermit.

    I won't ruin it for anyone who didn't see it, but they did show backstage at the Muppet Theater.

    And they just showed Fozzie as well...with a really deep voice.
