Edgar Degas (1834-1917) was a French painter and sculptor known for his paintings of dancers and racetracks.
- Miss Piggy appeared in a parody of Degas' 1881 sculpture "The Little Dancer of Fourteen Years" in the 1984 Miss Piggy's Art Masterpiece Calendar.
- Joe Mathieu also parodied Degas' 1877 painting "The Star" in a 2004 issue of Sesame Street Magazine, with a spoof featuring Zoe. The painting was also parodied in the Muppet Art: 1999 Calendar.
- Degas' sculpture Little Dancer of Fourteen Years is seen in the opening credit sequence of the Sesame Street special, Don't Eat the Pictures. Linda and two kids observe the statue and position themselves akin to the dancer.
- A Sesame Street insert animates one of Degas' variations of his painting Dancers at the Barre, as Zoe narrates. (First: Episode 4140)
