Back to the Future is an Academy Award winning science fiction movie released in 1985 that spawned two sequels and a cartoon series. The story follows the adventures of a teenager and his scientist friend as they travel through time.


  • The Muppet Babies episode "Back to the Nursery" features a plot with several parallels to the story from the film, primarily the concept of travelling back to the past to see your caretaker, in their case, Nanny. The most obvious reference is seen in the form of the time vehicle used by the babies which is made from Baby Gonzo's tricycle and a wagon and becomes transformed into the De Lorean from the film by way of their imaginations. The car leaves behind tire marks made of fire and utilizes an hourglass as its flux capacitor.
  • One of Oscar the Grouch's high school dances (as shown in a season 45 episode of Sesame Street) was named the "Enchantment Under the Sewers Dance." The Grouch band additionally plays a sound-alike version of "Earth Angel."
  • Joining the social media blitz of October 21, 2015 -- the future date depicted in Back to the Future II -- Kermit and Gonzo tweeted about time travel. @KermitTheFrog: "If I could travel back in time, I wouldn't do anything too monumental. I think I'd just like to have dinner with old friends and laugh." [1] @GonzotheGreat: "I know it sounds crazy, but I just time traveled to the year 2015! It's so WEIRD! Everyone has to communicate in 140 characters or less!" [2]
