In The Muppet Show episode 524, an international spy ring attempts to sneak ridiculous stories into the news. The Newsman reports that a black and yellow striped mackerel was elected king this morning, stopping his report when he realizes the ridiculousness of his story. He calls for the news studio guard (a Whatnot based on Bruno with a mustache, performed here by Richard Hunt) who has been showing "his majesty", the mackerel, around the newsroom. The Newsman exclaims "Holy Mackerel!", but the royal fish says that "Your Highness" will do. He asks the Newsman if he'd like to be knighted, proceeding to knock him out, thus wishing him "good night".
