This one is very short, but a Muppet reference none the less... This was a re-run of "Whose Line is it Anyway", and they were playing the dating game. Ryan was a person still under hypnosis, from a stageshow... Something set him off and he started barking and turning into different people, and near the end of his dialouge, he put out his hand and said "Hello Miss Piggy!". That's it...

In the Simpson episode "A Fish Called Selma", Bart, Homer and Lisa are watching Troy McClure in "Muppets Go Medieval". Troy is fighting Kermit for the hand of Miss Piggy.

Lisa: Dad, what's a Muppet?
Homer: Well, it's not quite a mop, it's not quite a puppet, but... (laughs hard). So, it answer your question, I don't know.

Great reference.

Hey - I got another one!

On an episode of Friends that aired in the UK recently (a repeat), Chandler and Joey are fighting because Joey is moving to a new appartment and Chandler doesn't want him to - the reference is something like:

Joey: Hey, we didn't agree to live together forever - we aren't Bert and Ernie!

Guy!

In 'Friends' they always have Muppet refrences. One episode Chandler is reading the paper and says that a muppet got hit by a person on 'Sesame Street.' In another episode Phoebe mentions the time she wrote to 'Sesame Street' saying that her mum killed herself asking what should she do and they sent her back a Cookie Monster keyring.

Thanks for posting this - I had totally forgotten this scene and not heard/seen it for years!

FYI ALF fans, my boss (who's German) tell me ALF is HUGE in Europe (and they say the French don't have good taste in comedy!). :smile:

Whose Line is it Anyway? always has muppet references too. Well, most of the time. They use Sesame street or the Muppet show for the Film and Theater styles...

(Host) Clive: "Oh, Muppet Movies, not the show.." (-to an audience's suggestion)

Once at the end credits, when the players had to be animals running into the camera, right before the show ended Wayne came up and did: "An-i-mal! An-i-mal!"
