Carmen Miranda (born Maria do Carmo Miranda da Cunha, 1909-1955) was a Portuguese-Brazilian singer famous as "the lady in the tutti-frutti hat." Beginning her career on Broadway, she found stardom on the silver screen. Her signature look was based on costumes she wore in the 1943 film The Gang's All Here.
- Miranda's 1949 song "The Matador" (backed by The Andrews Sisters) is one of the recordings used on Sam and Friends.
- In 1981 Hallmark released a sheet of Muppet stickers, with one, featuring Miss Piggy in Carmen Miranda's famed costume, saying "If you've got it... flaunt it!"
- Carol Channing sings a portion of "I, Yi, Yi, Yi, Yi" as part of a medley of songs in episode 423 of The Muppet Show, a song made famous by Carmen Miranda.
- Upon running into Colleen Barker in the Dog City special, Ace is dumbfounded, repeatedly saying "I...I..." to which Colleen tells him he sounds like Carmen Mirandog's houseboy.
