Grey's Anatomy is a television series about a group of hospital interns that has aired on ABC since 2005.
- Sesame Street spoofed the series in a 2007 episode as "A's Anatomy," starring Doctor Grover attempting surgery on the letter A.
- The French series Muppets TV spoofed the series in a recurring sketch titled "Muppets Anatomy," using the Grey's Anatomy theme song during the title.

In one episode, Clifford and Fozzie Bear operate on guest star Pascal Obispo, changing his singing voice by using a screwdriver on his neck.

- During the intro for the season 10 episode "Puttin' on the Ritz," Dr. Meredith Grey says "When the funds runs out, it's on us to get out there and raise some more. Which means. It's time to put on makeup. It's time to dress up right. It's time to get things started on The Muppet Show to...crap. Sorry. I've been watching a lot of children's television lately...."
