The "Poseidon: The Musical" Singers, a pair of Whatnots, appeared in Episode 24 of Statler & Waldorf: From the Balcony. The characters sang a song from an upcoming new musical version of The Poseidon Adventure. The orange one was played by Drew Massey and the blue one by Victor Yerrid.

Although From the Balcony used the singing sailors to poke fun at the 2006 film Poseidon, a Los Angeles theater group had in fact mounted a campy production of Poseidon Adventure: The Musical in 2003.
