Muppet Film and TV References

    Here's another reference from Glee:

    In the episode "Theatricality", the girls in the club and Kurt perform Lady Gaga songs, and the other guys perform songs by KISS, and they're all dressed up as the singers. At one point in the episode, Rachel walks into the choir room wearing a dress with a bunch of dolls and stuffed animals stapled to it, and Mercedes comments something along the lines of "looks like the Kermit the Frog outfit."

    Some guy on the golf channel (558 where I live) made a funny comment about one of the competitors in some tournament (I don't remember which one), and I guess the guy who was playing was from Sweden, so this guy who's talking about the competitor from Sweden starts talking like the Swedish chef (and he sounded EXACTLY like the Swedish Chef)!

    Not sure if anyone else posted this but on the Scott Pilgrim vs the World DVD, in the commentary with the director and author of the books, the director mentions that he wanted the film to feel like Sesame street with all the hidden number (7) and letter (X) references. He later makes a comment about how in the part where Scott keeps saying "wow" as Lucas Lee is skating down the rail, the last "wow" he wanted to sound like Beaker and aparently told Cera to pretend he was a muppet. He then said he could picture Frank Oz puppeteering him.

    Oh yeah I forgot about that. (love Scott Pilgrim btw) I may have made it up in my head, but I seem to remember them saying something about Oscar the Grouch too? Don't remember what if anything though.

    On American Dad last night they had one of Steve's friends using a Fozzie puppet to tell jokes, then later you see a cabbage patch talking and singing, which kind of reminded me of the You Don't Want My Love number from when Roger Miller hosted.

    About a week ago I saw the kids hostings between shows on the ABC, a 5 minute interlude with a sleazy yet amusing remark. The hosting blocks are "Giggle and Hoot" hosted by a man in a strange outfit and an owl puppet (puppeteered by the wonderful Mal Heap I believe). ANYWAY a child submitted a drawing to the programme of the two eponymous hosts, Elmo and Abby; with Hoot (the owl) sighing "Ooooo Abby Cadabby" in the sleaziest, most drawn out way possible - complete with eyelid mech fluttering!

    On American Dad last night, we find out that Jim and Kermit were imprisoned in the Phantom Zone for trying to sneak into heaven! Also, the actor assigned to both of them did their voices exactly the same! *LOL*

    Jim: Forgive us!
    Kermit: You will bow down before me, Son of God!
  8. GonzoLeaper Active Member

    No offense if you're a fan of this show, but that kind of sacreligious scene is why I don't care for "American Dad" and much of the rest of its ilk... The Son of God bows to no one but we will all bow before Him one day (Philippians 2:9-11)
    And there is no way to sneak into Heaven- you can only get in through the Gate- Jesus Christ. (John 10:1-18)
  9. bazingababe24 Member

    I understand. Personally, I don't know why they used Jim Henson for the joke. I don't know of him ever saying anything about sneaking into heaven. In that respect, it kind of fell flat, but it still managed to be funny. Maybe it's just because he has a funny voice.:)

    On tonight's Family Guy, "A Foreign Affair" Lois and Bonnie are in France, and Lois says, "can we at least got on a Muppet style sight seeing trip first?"

    and we have actual live action Lois and Bonnie puppets looking at green screened sights.

    In the Scrubs episode "My ABC's" Seasame Street is almost the main focus of the episode. Oscar, Elmo and Grover show up in J.D.'s fantasy moments. And this is by far the best quote of the episode, its said by J.D. of course:

    "I grew up on the street...Not the hood, Seasame Street."

    In the movie Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium Kermit appears briefly, and says hello to some kids, and tells them he's just shopping.
  13. Muppetfan2011 Member

    I never seen it but, a cast of muppets appeared on SCRUBS

    Tonight after watching Miss Piggy's appearance on So Random, I flipped over and watched the new episode of the Simpsons.

    Near the end of the episode, Bart and some of the other boys take over their school so the police and swat team are outside. One cop asks Chief Wiggum, "Do we think we could take the building without hurting anyone?" and Chief Wiggum says, "Well if a bunch of Muppets can take Manhattan..." then he drops his gun which accidentally goes off and shoots a school administrator in the knee.

    Loved it! Awesome reference to MTM-definitely never thought we would get a reference to that on TV shows today- coolness!

    last night we were watching old dr who (ok David Tennant's first year...) episode Tooth and Claw.. they thought they were going to 1979 and the Dr lists the high lights for the year and counts the release of the Muppet Movie amongst them.. we thought that was a great little nod (since so much of it goes the other way on SS, MS and such...)

    In one of the Jeff Dunham specials on Comedy Central, there was a piece with Peanut and Jose Jalepeno and Peanut teases him about his accent. He says to Jeff, "Didn't you watch Sesame Street? Jeff is Jeff, Heff is Heff and Cheff is Cheff", the last one had the pronounciation that sounds like hacking, I don't know how to describe it. Peanut also sings a line from "One of These Things" and did "Today's show was brought to you by...", well, you can see it for yourself.
    In his latest show, "Controlled Chaos", another bit with Jose and Peanut had another Muppet mention, Jose calls Peanut a "Muppet reject", it's funny because Peanut kind of looks like a Muppet.
    Any Jeff Dunham fans out there?

    Totally remember these, I love Jeff Dunham!
  19. tutter_fan Well-Known Member

    Jeff Dunham is a cool person to me. I love that one show called "spark of insanity" (I think), and when peanut comes on, all chaos breaks loose! I love the two parts where Jeff moves his hand over his head and goes "Yoooom!" (like a race car) and peanut keeps bothering jeff about that, and that "Jeff Dunham..... DOT COM!" (Peanut also bothers jeff about this, too)!

    On Big Bang Theory there's an episode where Leonard, Sheldon, Raj and Howard are going o a costume party on New Year's Eve and they originally planned to go as super heroes, but, Penny backs out as Wonder Woman and they decide to go with their Muppet Babies costume and this conversation takes place:

    Raj: I call Kermit :)

    Leonard: Raj, I'm Kermit, you're Scooter!

    Raj: I don't want to be Scooter :( Scooter sucks!

    (this is funny because Raj is dressed as Aquaman and says Aquaman sucks and now Scooter sucks, however Scooter is awesome <3 )
