Odd squad

One purple, one green, one full-figured.

The Mod Squad was a police drama which ran on ABC from 1968-1973. The series followed three rebellious youths who are offered a chance to form an undercover police unit rather then face incarceration.

References[]

  • Muppets Tonight episode 202 parodies the show as an early 1970s series "The Muppet Odd-Squad." Spoofing the way the show's promotional posters referred to the trio as "one white, one black, one blonde," the announcer describes this trio as one purple (Clifford as "Lint," spoofing Linc down to the big afro and shades), one green (Kermit) and one full-figured (Spamela Hamderson). The special guest star is Little Ricky Moranis as Little Ricky Cool and the sketch is full of references to the hippie movement and sixties and seventies slang.
