Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure is a 1989 comedy where two high school slackers time travel in an attempt to assemble historical figures for their history presentation. Among the icons brought back in time with their telephone booth time machine are Napoleon Bonaparte, Abraham Lincoln and Ludwig van Beethoven.
The film was successful enough to launch a sequel, an animated series, comics, a musical, and a short lived live action series.
- In the Muppet Babies episode "Muppet Babies: The Next Generation," the babies time travel in a telephone booth, just like the heros of the film.
- The second season Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventures episode "A Bogus Day in the Neighborhood," while primarily spoofing Mister Rogers, has Mr. Radish briefly get a job in a frog suit on Frognme Street, spoofing Sesame Street. Bill and Ted return to the street and find a hungry monster in a trash can.
