Burt Reynolds (1936-2018) was an American actor best remembered for his roles in Deliverance, Smokey and the Bandit and The Cannonball Run, as well as his television series Evening Shade (co-starring Michael Jeter).
- In the Elmo's World episode "Getting Dressed," the Getting Dressed Channel tells viewers to stay tuned for "Shall We Pants?" starring Shirt Reynolds.
- The Muppets episode "A Tail of Two Piggies" features Pepe the King Prawn sprawled out naked on a shag carpet in the same pose used by Burt Reynolds in a nude photo from Cosmopolitan magazine in 1972. @TheMuppetsABC on Twitter posted the photo with the caption, "@SpicyPrawn is 1972 Burt level spicy!"
- In a 2019 social media video, the Jonas Brothers talk about Reynolds, and Ernie walks in just as Joe says "Burt's the best!" (which Ernie mistakes for another Bert).
