Muppet Mentions

  • In the season one episode "The Rhodes Not Taken," some glee club members are wondering about Quinn Fabray's odd behavior. Puck butts in, "Are you all that stupid? Seriously? I bet you thought Bert and Ernie were just roommates."
  • In the season one episode "Bad Reputation," the glee club members are trying to improve their image. After failing to make themselves appear bad-ass, Kurt admits "We're as menacing as Muppet Babies."
  • In the season one episode "Theatricality," the girls in the glee club dress in various styles after Lady Gaga. Rachel wears a dress with stuffed animals stapled to it. Mercedes says, "I think it's the Kermit the Frog look." She's referring to Lady Gaga's dress made of Kermit plush dolls worn as a statement against wearing fur.
  • In the season two episode "Furt," Santana fixes Finn's tie in a church nursery with pictures of Cookie Monster and Big Bird on the wall. Earlier in the episode, Sue Sylvester offers Kurt the following nicknames to pick from: "Gelfling, Porcelain or Tickle-Me-Doughface." He picks the middle one.

  • In the season three episode "I Am Unicorn," Coach Bieste carries Artie (who is wheelchair-bound) to a chair. Artie whispers to Emma, "She's like my own private Jim Henson."
  • In the season three episode "Pot O' Gold," Irish character Rory Flanagan performs "Bein' Green."
  • In the season three episode "Extraordinary Merry Christmas," Sue again called Kurt a "Gelfling."
