Christopher Columbus (ca. 1451-1506) was an Italian navigator widely credited with the discovery of America. Columbus gained financing for the voyage through the queen of Spain. Some time around 1492, he was also accosted by a journalistic amphibian, Kermit the Frog, who interviewed him on his plans for the voyage for a News Flash sketch on Sesame Street. Intriguingly, the Muppet Columbus claims his intent is to discover America, and not seek a spice route to the Indies as is widely accepted.

Columbus Day is celebrated on the second Monday in October in the United States. A town in Ohio also bears his last name. The explorer was not a known influence on Columbo, however.

Fozzie Bear took the role in a 1983 Milton Bradley puzzle titled "Christofozzie Columbus Gets His Bearings".

In a 2006 episode of Sesamstrasse, Samson imagines that he's Columbus, and discovers the potato.

Baby Fozzie played Columbus in the 1991 Muppet Babies coloring book A Trip Through Time. He discovers a fish while standing on the bow of the Santa Maria.
