James Bond is a fictional British spy, created by Ian Fleming in 1953, who has become the popular archetype of the debonair secret agent. He has been portrayed in numerous novels and movies, and his exploits have been spoofed by many, including the Muppets.
- Roger Moore, then the current James Bond, made an appearance on The Muppet Show in episode 524, fighting off villainous spy Muppets disguised as cute bunny rabbits.
- The same season, Shirley Bassey sang "Goldfinger" (the title song from the Bond movie of the same name) in The Muppet Show episode 504; Link Hogthrob appeared in the number, clad as Auric Goldfinger.
- Pierce Brosnan, the '90s James Bond, appeared on Muppets Tonight in episode 204. In homage, when Clifford introduces Brosnan, a James Bond gun barrel sequence was shown looking for him with the James Bond Theme playing.
- Ernst Stavros Grouper, from Muppets Tonight episode 205, is a spoof of recurring Bond villain Ernst Stavro Blofeld.
- Kermit also appeared as Agent Frog, a James Bond-type spy in Spy Muppets: License to Croak. Other Muppets in the game include Miss Piggy as Piggy Galore and Gonzo as Dr. Nose.
- Kermit spoofed James Bond in the 1998` calendar Muppet Movie Parodies: Plump Fiction, in "Go Figure."
- In a Twitter posting on January 26, 2012 as part of the Ask Kermit promotion for the United Kingdom premiere of The Muppets, Kermit said, "My Tux is by Nicky Napoleon of Emperor Penguin Formal Wear. Makes me look like Pond, James Pond."
- In Muppets Most Wanted, Constantine wears steel-capped teeth similar to the Bond villain Jaws (from The Spy Who Loved Me and Moonraker), using them to chomp his way out of a rope net that Animal had captured him in.
- Muppets Most Wanted also features Fozzie saying "Kermit, you were like James Bond back there," referring to Kermit's sneaking into the Tower of London.
- Two UK posters were created for the release of Muppets Most Wanted, "Frogfall" and "The Pig is not Enough"
- In the Sesame Street song "Put a Lid on It", Waiter Grover brings Mr. Johnson a milkshake, stirred not shaken. However, Mr. Johnson replies he asked for it "shaken not stirred!", a quote from many of the James Bond films.
- In a Global Grover segment on Russia, Grover ends his film by saying "From Russia...with love," the title of the second James Bond film.
- In a Episode 4173 of Sesame Street, Oscar the Grouch tries to hide from Abby Cadabby by wearing a disguise and claiming his name is "James Bond."
- A segment of "Cookie's Crumby Pictures" stars Cookie Monster as the spy "Double-Stuffed 7" in the movie, The Spy Who Loved Cookies. The segment features a villain, Ladyfinger (spoofing Goldfinger), as well as spoofs of famous James Bond movie themes ("Goldfinger" and "Skyfall").
- In Elmo's World: Sky, Sky Channel viewers are asked to stay tuned for "The Sky Who Loved Me."
- In Elmo's World: Doctors, the television announces that next up on the Doctor Channel is Dr. No (followed by Dr. Yes).
- In Sesamgade episode 35, the James Bond theme is used when Secret agent Elmo is sneaking around in his room.
- Baby Gonzo imagined himself as Double-O-Gonzo in a 1984 Muppet Babies episode, "The Case of the Missing Chicken." The episode also has Baby Bunsen as a Q-type character and Baby Piggy as "Octopiggy", a reference to the heroine from the then-recent 1983 film Octopussy.
- "The Frog Who Knew Too Much" features a number of Bond references, including a sequence in which Baby Gonzo portrays Dr. Nose, a reference to Dr. No.
- Baby Gonzo shoots a water pistol at the camera as James Bond in "Nice to Have Gnome You."
- The Muppet Babies reboot episode "Secret Agent Double-Oh-Frog" parodies the spy genre, and places Baby Kermit in the role of the titular secret agent, with the other babies taking roles such as Baby Fozzie's Oddfoz (Goldfinger henchman Oddjob) and, once again, Baby Gonzo's Dr. Nose (Bond villain Dr. No). Writer Hanah Lee Cook referred to Kermit as "James Pond" in earlier drafts of the episode.
- The Dinosaurs episode "How to Pick Up Girls" has Robbie Sinclair imagining himself as a James Bond figure, battling a dinosaur caricature of Goldfinger villain Oddjob.
- In the Bear in the Big Blue House episode "Step By Step", Tutter struggles to decide how to introduce himself to Miss Maxwell and briefly considers "The name's mouse... Tutter the Mouse."
