Muppet Mentions

  • In the season 6 episode, “London,” Jean-Ralphio compares his father's lawyer to Beaker from the Muppets and makes the meep sound that Beaker speaks with.
  • In the season 7 episode, "The Johnny Karate Super Awesome Musical Explosion Show," Andy Dwyer (Chris Pratt) accidentally lets a dangerous spider loose in the studio while hosting a children's show, which leads to the network airing an on-air disclaimer. When slowed down and gone through frame-by-frame, it can be seen that halfway through the disclaimer, Dwyer briefly hijacks the message, saying "I had a dumb meeting with our dumb lawyer who was yelling at me for something I don't even know what it was he's so funny when he yells he looks like Beaker from the Muppets..."
