  • In the 20th anniversary audio commentary for The Muppet Christmas Carol, Rizzo suggests that the Muppets should make a spin-off film for Fred entitled "Fred Scrooge and the Temple of Cheese" (a spoof of the title Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom).

Muppet BabiesEdit

  • Muppet Babies featured a number of appearances by Baby Kermit's alter ego, Indiana Frog, and other references to the franchise.
  • The series opening credits featured Kermit swinging past the screen as Jones in front of live-action footage from Raiders of the Lost Ark.
  • The episode "Raiders of the Lost Muppet" draws heavily from the plot of The Temple of Doom and includes scenes from the film. Baby Piggy refers to Kermit here as her hero, Indiana Frog.
  • In "Once Upon an Egg Timer," Baby Kermit's 3 minute story is on Indiana Frog's Adventure to find the lost bark after Baby Rowlf lose his voice. The title of his story is also called, Raiders of the Lost Bark.
  • The fourth season episode "Muppetland" features a sequence in which Skeeter imagines a safari-themed amusement park. Swinging through the trees like Tarzan, the babies find themselves in a mining cart racing through caves headed for danger. Footage from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom is used and John Williams' musical motif for the character is briefly incorporated into Rob Walsh's score.
  • In "The House That Muppets Built," Baby Gonzo appears as Quasigonzo (a spoof of Quasimodo, a character also famous for swinging about by ropes) living in the bell towers of the Notre Dame cathedral. As he attempts to smother Baby Piggy with kisses, Indiana Frog swings in to save the damsel in distress.
  • "Indy" helps Piggy find the Jewel of Tibet in "Nanny's Day Off". The episode also makes use of the travel-by-map technique used in the Indiana Jones films.
  • As Baby Gonzo realizes that he'd rather stick around the calamity created by having several Muppet Babies appear as different characters in "Muppet Babies: The Next Generation," Indiana Frog swings in from off screen yodeling like Tarzan to once again save Baby Piggy.
  • On the run from the other Babies in "Whose Tale Is It, Anyway?", Gonzo (in fedora) and Animal ride in a red wagon that doubles as a mining cart which intercuts with footage from the Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom mining cart chase.
  • In the 2018 episode "Sir Kermit the Brave," the babies are seen running away from a large boulder using footage lifted from Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Sesame StreetEdit

  • When Big Bird and Snuffy go on an adventure in Sesame Street Episode 3135, Snuffy wears an Indiana Jones style fedora on their adventure and an Indy look-alike is repeatedly chased down Sesame Street by a large boulder.
  • To illustrate the arrival of special effects in movie making, a large spherical stone crashes through a wall in A Brief History of Motion Pictures. The music hints at the adventurous theme written for Indiana Jones by John Williams, and the prop is a direct reference to the opening action sequence of the first film.
  • Elmo and Friends: Tales of Adventure is designed with an Indiana Jones theme. The front cover features an original illustration of archaeological ruins, the title is written in a font made to resemble that of the Indiana Jones franchise, the DVD menus include weathered maps similar to those seen in memorable transition scenes from the films and Elmo appears on the main menu wearing Indiana Jones' trademark brown pants and jacket, as well as a fedora. He's even animated swinging on a vine as the menu starts over.
  • In the Bert and Ernie's Great Adventures episode, "Wise Old Duck", Bert and Ernie pretend they are Indiana Jones-type explorers. They dress like Indiana Jones and run away from a giant egg in the vein of the giant boulder in Raiders of the Lost Ark.
  • In the "Elmo the Musical" segment, "Guacamole the Musical," Elmo must collect onion from the Temple of Spoons, spoofing Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.
  • In Elmo's Super Numbers, Cookie Monster cosplays at Numeric-Con as "In-Three-ana Jones." He opens his treasure (shaped like the Ark of the Covenant) to find three snack cakes inside. He moans, "Cakes...why it have to be cakes?"
