- In the Muppet Babies episode "At the Movies," Piggy wants to see a movie called A Rising Star (referencing A Star Is Born). Footage from the 1937 film appears in a sequence where Piggy is trying to star in a movie. Assorted movie crew members call for the director, Mr. Burke (Owen Moore). Andy Devine (as assistant director Danny McGuire) is prominently featured in several shots. In another clip, two make-up artists (Arthur Hoyt and Adrian Rosley) practice their craft on Piggy, only for her to end up in clown make-up.
