    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?

    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 )

    From The Cleveland Show, "Nightmare on Grace Street" episode...

    Donnie, an annoying guy who wants to be Cleveland's friend, but Cleveland always blows him off tries hanging out with the Browns when they're trick or treating. At one house, Donnie jumps out and yells something to the extent of..

    "Trick or Trout! Ha HA ha Ha! No seriously, we want candy not fish...unless they're Swedish Fish [puts finger under nose like a mustache and does a bad Swedish Chef impersonation" Borkidy smorkdy borky doo..."

    or something like that. Point is, he did a bad Swedish Chef accent.

    Before someone watches this episode several years from now and posts it a HUNDRED times...

    The Swedish Chef was drawn into tonight's Simpsons in a dream Marge has. He was also in the promotional photo.

    Just saw the Modern Family episode where it starts off where the couple is getting into an argument with a dad about letting his kids see a violent horror film...then they realize oops, they accidentally were in the wrong theater...showing the new Muppet movie! Too hilarious! I swear Modern Family is one of the best newerish tv shows.

    Love that episode. And Lily's reaction later. "You saw the Muppets without me?" Priceless.

    (don't see why this is unstickyed)

    Here's an older one. From the 1996 Casper cartoon episode Three Ghosts and a Baby, Casper's regression therapy from Dr. Harvey turns him into a baby ghost. To which Dr. Harvey says, "Casper! You gotta turn back! The Muppet Babies will sue our pants off!"

    I hate that episode. I usually like Modern Family becuase it's brillinatly funny. But I can't believe Disney had their own show try to make fun of The Muppets when they're trying so hard to make older audiennces go to this movie.
  18. Muppet fan 123 Well-Known Member

    Ehh... while it was priceless I hate the whole episode. After she said that Mitchell says "No, we only stayed for the first two numbers" That's not the Muppets that's Sesame Street!!
  19. Drtooth Well-Known Member

    That wasn't the point at all. it was more like subliminal marketing. When the episode was first aired, the first commercial on the commercial break of that scene was The Muppets trailer. That was BRILLIANT marketing. They ran that trailer during Glee the break after that kid sang "It's not Easy Being Green."
