Roseanne is a sitcom which aired on ABC from 1988 to 1997 and returned in 2018. Based on the stand-up comedy of Roseanne Barr, who often joked of her status as a "Domestic Goddess", the series featured the blue-collar working Conner family and the trials and tribulations of their everyday life. The series remained in the top four of the ratings for six of its nine years and received multiple Emmy Awards.

Muppet Mentions

  • In "Halloween IV", a guest at the Halloween party is wearing a costume of Link Hogthrob in his Pigs in Space costume with a space helmet on his head.

  • In "Construction Junction", Jackie gets a computer in her house and David is helping her set it up. As David is showing Jackie an ABC software and a counting software for her son, Andy, to play with, Jackie looks at the screen and shouts, "Is that Big Bird?"
  • In "Roseanne-Feld", Roseanne tells Jackie that she isn't going to be one of those grandmother that spoils their grandchild. Jackie then takes Roseanne's bag and dumps a bunch of dolls and plushes including Elmo out from the bag on to the table. Roseanne replies, "How did that get in there?"
