    On an episode of Jeopardy today, one of the three contestants mentioned that their father was the man they named Oscar the Grouch after. :grouchy:

    Just saw this. She also mentions The Muppet Babies heavily too, but nods to the Muppets a few times in that video, which to date, I think is her best and most compelling.

    On the Howard Stern connection again:
    Howard 100 news today covered Stern's stylist Ralph Cirella's opinion of producer Gary "Bababooey" Dell'Abate and his Techno Beaver costume, claiming it was of poor quality. Cirella went on to say that if someone reputable, like "the Jim Henson Shop" designed the outfit, it would have some merit.

    Saw a Red Bull Flugtag commercial on Hulu with a homemade flying machine in the shape of Super Grover.

    Not sure how many of you ever saw the show "The Odd Couple" (it's about 2 divorced men named Felix & Oscar who live together.Oscar's a slob & Felix is a neat freak.) Well Felix had a nose job & he had a bandage over his eyes.He wanted to know what time it was.So he started dialing the phone for the time.It was an old fashioned phone (it had a dial instead of buttons) So Felix was counting:
    Felix(trying to find the holes) : 1,2,3,4,5,6....Six! dials the number 6
    Again:1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8..Eight!
    Oscar:I feel like I'm on "Sesame Street"!

    The question on Who Wants to be a Millionaire? was "Which of the following songs won an Academy Award?" The answer choices were "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang", "Talk to the Animals", "The Bare Necessities", and "Rainbow Connection." :)

    Some of you should remember the chase scene in the 80's Dragnet movie where Dan Ackroyd's Joe Friday says "Muppets" at a bunch of stuffed animals.

    In the "Bunny Raven" episode of Teen Titans, tow of Mumbo's duplicates look and laughed like Statler and Waldorf.

    Drawn Together featured the Muppet Babies getting the stuffing out of them by Princess Clara's pitbull dogs.

    Drawn Together did an entire episode ripping off Muppet Babies as well. :D It was hilarious.

    In math class, our teacher gave us a worksheet involving pie charts, and the heading of the first graph is "Kermit's Monthly Budget" and the graph reads: "Fly Traps 25% Pond Fees 21% Agent 14% Singing Lessons __%" :):wisdom::D

    Spoiler for tonight's episode of The Office (highlight to read):

    Oscar circulates a viral video he created that compares Kevin’s voice to Sesame Street’s Cookie Monster.

    I might have mentioned this before.(so forgive me if I did.)
    On a game show called "Chain Reaction" one of the contestants did an imitation of :insatiable: singing a little bit of "C Is For Cookie"

    My mom (and all the other teachers) just got a message from the principal (I think it was the principal, at least...) that contained the line, "Oooh, I am so excited (I am speaking in 'Grover' on this part)..." :super:

    I was watching Britain's Got More Talent yesterday when Amanda Holden said Piers Morgan has Fozzie Bear eyebrows.

    In English class, we have to write a "bio poem" and the sample on the page was for "Tom Turkey" and one of the lines on the sample poem was "Sibling of Clucky Chicken and Big Bird" :D:wisdom::crazy:

    I hate to be a buzz-kill... but this thread is really for "Film and TV" references that contain the Muppets. I'm so glad to see the Muppets being referenced in your daily life, GG, but maybe you could find (or even start) a different thread for Muppet references in every day life?

    I just saw a commercial for "delta faucets" advertising that you can turn it on and off by simply tapping the faucet. While "Hands" by the Count was playing in the background...

    On Muppet Wiki, someone added to the Pixar page that in the short film, "Presto", Statler and Waldorf make a cameo. They added a picture proving it, much to my amazement. I checked it out for myself and they're really there!

    Dr. Teeth, Dr. John and the Stones!

    This is an internet reference from http://www.latenightwithjimmyfallon.com/:
    Special Rolling Stones Week Guest: Dr. John
    "So far, Taj Mahal and Chuck Leavell have sat in with The Roots to help out with our Rolling Stones Week! Tonight, we've got a new special guest: the legendary Dr. John! He played on the original Exile on Main Street album - and now he's here to help celebrate the re-release. Though you may know Dr. John for his impressive music career - did you realize that the muppet Dr. Teeth is partially based on him? Incredible. He also has a new album coming out on August 3, called Tribal, so be sure to check that out."

    Uh, I think I'll need some of you guys to help me out on this one. My dad taped the Ghost Whisperer episode from Friday and he showed me a commercial that aired during the show for a new episode of a different show, and during the commercial somebody said something about "Scooter from The Muppet Show". Anybody remember what show that was or the rest of the quote?
