The Muppets visited the show in the Winter 1989 issue of Muppet Magazine.
- Cirque Du Soleil was parodied in It's a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie in 2002, as the avant-garde show "Cirque du So Lamé." Gonzo hired Luc Fromage to stage the number which involved Mr. Poodlepants, The Bossmen, Miss Piggy, and three Primitives, with Rizzo, the Rats, and Scooter working backstage.
- A recurring plot in the Muppets' performance at the Just for Laughs comedy gala revolves around Cirque du Soleil being their special guest. Sweetums appears onstage as "Du", as Cirque and Soleil have canceled. Gonzo instead puts on his own act - "Cirque du Poulet" featuring his chickens.
- When the network insists a "splashy" makeover for Up Late with Miss Piggy in The Muppets episode "Swine Song", Fozzie Bear suggests they flood the stage like in Cirque Du Soleil. Lew Zealand offers an alternative as he throws a Boomerang Fish: Cirque Du Filet.
- David Shiner has worked with the troupe in many capacities.
