Dali referenced in The Muppet Show: Sex and Violence

Salvador Dalí (1904-1989) was a 20th century surrealist painter most famous for his "melting clocks" painting, The Persistence of Memory.


  • Dalí was also referenced in a scene in the 1975 pilot The Muppet Show: Sex and Violence. The clocks on the wall of the main production room show the times in various cities in one scene; in another scene, the clocks have changed to a cubist "Picasso" clock, a melting "Dalí" clock, and a blank "Anonymous" clock.
  • The Cookie Thief features a spoof of Dalí's The Persistence of Memory, titled The Persistence of Cookies.
  • The melted clock dangling on the tree branch in The Persistence of Memory appears in an Alphaquest segment as a "wilted watch."
