CSI: Crime Scene Investigation is a television series which debuted in 2000. The series has sparked three spin-offs, CSI: Miami, CSI: NY and CSI: Cyber. Three of these series center on a team of forensic scientists who investigate mysterious crimes, while CSI: Cyber focuses on a special unit of investigators dedicated to solving crimes with a digital aspect, such as cyberstalking and online fraud.

Cain from CSI: Miami was voted at number 91, and Gil Grissom & Catherine Willows from CSI:Crime Scene Investigation were placed at number 82 in Bravo's ranking of the 100 Greatest TV Characters.


  • A Ready to Learn insert featured Ernie as a CSI-style investigator, alongside a girl and Ord (Dragon Tales). Though the format of the sketch explicitly parodied CSI, the background music was the theme to the 1960s series Peter Gunn.
  • Muppets TV featured Les Experts Muppets (The Muppet Experts), a spoof of the series (known in France as Le Experts), and used the CSI theme song. The team consisted of Kermit the Frog (as "Kermit Grisomme," referencing series lead Carl Grissom), Fozzie Bear as Fozzie Staucks, Animal as Animal Warrique, and Denise as Denise Sideul.
