The Day the Earth Stood Still is a 1951 science fiction film about a man from another world who visits Earth on a goodwill mission.

The Muppet Babies episode "From a Galaxy Far, Far Away..." uses footage from the movie when the babies are "playing UFO". The babies use a round coffee table with an overturned bowl on top to stand in for a flying saucer. Footage of the film's spacecraft is inter-cut with their nursery fantasy, and some of Baby Gonzo's alien dialogue is reminiscent of the language spoken in the film.
