Cary and Baby Piggy


Miss Piggy asks George Hamilton to imitate Cary Grant.


Big Bird spoofing Grant's famous North by Northwest scene.

Cary Grant (1905-1986), birth name Archie Leach, was an English-born actor who became one of the leading Hollywood stars and romantic idols from the 1930s until his retirement in the 1960s. His films ranged from screwball comedies (Bringing Up Baby, His Girl Friday) to Hitchcock films (Notorious, To Catch a Thief, and most famously North by Northwest).


  • The 1986 film Follow That Bird includes a scene in which Big Bird spoof's Grant's famous plane chase scene from Hitchcock's North by Northwest.
  • Grant's dialogue exchange with Shirley Temple in The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer (1947) was lifted almost verbatim for the scene in Labyrinth in which Jareth converses with one of his goblins. The most notable alterations are the substitution of "babe" for "man" and "voodoo" for "hoodoo."
Richard Nugent (Grant): Hey, you remind me of a man.
Susan Turner (Temple): What man?
Richard: Man with the power.
Susan: What power?
Richard: Power of hoodoo.
Susan: Hoodoo?
Richard: You do.
Susan Turner: Do what?
Richard Nugent: Remind me of a man...
