I assume you're refering to the brilliant Jimmy James monolouge. Actually it is directly from the show, I got it off of a great NewsRadio quote website, HERE. You can find that monolouge and many others, they may not be as muppetational as this one, but they're hilarious non the less. I wish I could of used one of these when I auditioned for Laguardia.

Oh, How could I forget? Here's one from my favorite show "The Invisible Man."
Agents Fawkes and Hobbes are in the childerns/materinity ward of a hospital waiting for another agent.

HOBBES: Well, what about Bert and Ernie, huh?
FAWKES: Bert and Ernie?
HOBBES: Anybody deny they're gay lovers?
FAWKES: What are you talking about?
HOBBES: This morning, I'm getting dressed, I'm watching TV, right?
FAWKES: Yeah.
HOBBES: Big Bird and Elmo come by. . .
FAWKES: Wait, hold on. You watch Sesame Street?
HOBBES: Yeah, it's the only decent thing on at six AM, Fawkes.
FAWKES: That explains a lot.
HOBBES: Anyways, Bert and Ernie come riding in on a bicycle built for two.
FAWKES: A tandem.
HOBBES: Yeah. I mean, these guys have been living together for what, the past 30 years now?
FAWKES: Something like that.
HOBBES: Yeah, so I'm thinking that, hey, it's time to come out, fellas.
FAWKES: Hobbes, they're puppets.
HOBBES: That's what they said about Reagan. Mm-hmm.

That's from the episode entitled "The Camp." Right from the transcribed script there.

Just remembered a couple from the NBC Sitcom 'Frasier' starring Kelsey Grammer.

1. Roz (the call screener at the radio station) is taking calls on the PBS Pledge Night and is talking to a kid saying 'No! Lamb Chops not here...BIG BIRD ISN'T HERE EITHER....'

2. Frasier and Niles are both trying to get into a snooty club and Niles insults a bearded member by saying 'Yes - I'm talking to you FOZZIE!'

Laugh? I thought my trousers would never dry!

Guy!

Actually, he wasn't going to kill Piggy, but do something a lot more ...uh.. adult to her. His lines were, "If that doesn't work, maybe a little tenderness will." after "hugging" the doll, he adds, "I'm making out with a Pig! I've become my father!!!"

Another Animaniacs refference:

Dracula: I am Count Dracula!
Yakko: Eh.. Didn't you used to teach math on Sesame Street?

Another Family Guy refference, a guy in a tatoo parlor (also a bank) wants the owner to draw a skull or something on him and the owner says.."uh.. I can do Kermit the Frog. How about a nice Kermit the Frog?....You know what I'm gonna do? I'm going to draw Kermit the Frog!"

On the Obscure kid's show, Ned's Newt, Newton the Newt (who has Mask like Morphing powers) turns into a Big Bird type character and says something like "this show is brought to you by N-E-W-T NEH-OOOO-Tuh!"

And my favorite, on Earthworm Jim there was a parody of Sesame Street that the evil Bob the Goldfish tried to educate a fish army with called "Salmon Street" here's a transcription

Fish Sock Puppet #1: Hey kids! Let's all sing the inhert gasses song!

BOth Fish Puppets: (singing to the tune of old MacDonald)
I know which gasses are inhert
helium, neon, and argon
I'll sing this song until it hurts
krypton, xenon, and radon!

And here's one for all of you ALF fans.

On one episode, Brian and ALF (or Gordon, if you prefer) are watching Sesame.

Brian: DO you get Sesame Street where you lived?

ALF: No! and frankly I don't get it down here, either

Woman on TV: If you guessed the cow riding on the bus, you're absolutly right.

ALF: Brilliant! All this and the letter I in one day! I need a drink!

this sound is available in WAV format at

There's another Family Guy one that people forgot. Peter's watching a show called Homicide:Life On Sesame Street. It has Ernie and Bert. The phone rings. Bert Answers.

BERT:Hello? Son of a *****.
ERNIE:Bert. What's the matter, Bert?
BERT:Some poor ******* got his head blown off at a place called Hoopers.
(Bert takes a swig of something)
ERNIE:Bert. I wish you wouldn't drink so much Bert.
BERT:I wish you'd stop eating cookies in the **** bed.
ERNIE:Bert. You're yelling again Bert.

They do the music they used when they changed skits and it ended. It was really funny.

This is actually a hilarious bit, I didn't post it because I thought it was a little too dirty for Muppet Central, but I'm glad someone else did. Anyone who wants the clip can e-mail me, and I'd be happy to send it to them. Gonz, you're transcription was pretty good but you left out some so let me write it in it's entirety:

Announcer: This show contains adult content, and is brought to you by the letter "H".
*Police Sirens are heard in the background and we hear a phone ringing*
Bert: (Bert wakess up, and gets out of a bed which Ernie is also in, and answers the phone) Hello... *sighs* Son of a *****, I'm on my way... (hangs up phone) Some poor ******* got his head blown off down at place called Hoopers. (Bert takes a drink and thens throws up)
Ernie: Bert, I wish you wouldn't drink so much Bert.
Bert: Well Ernie, I wish you wouldn't eat cookies IN THE **** BED!!!
Ernie: Bert, you're shouting again Bert...
Bert: *sighs angrily*
(Wanh Wanh Wanh Wanh end of skit music plays)

I believe that's the skit in it's full form...

This was just on "The Cosby Show" not more than 1 minute ago:

The Huxtables are in Lena Horne's dressing room at a posh resort or somethin':

Rudy: "I saw you on 'Sesame Street'!"

Lena: "You did? Yes, I sang a song with Kermit the Frog."

Rudy: "Can I meet him?"

Lena: "Well, I'll see if we can set up a date."

:smile:
