A pair of robbers appear in the Tubmans of Porksmith sketch seen in episode 106 of Muppets Tonight. They barge into Howard Tubman's den just as he's about to celebrate the letting out of his pants with his butler, Carter. The robbers head straight for his safe, which contains only a colonial rum cake. Howard, willing to sit idly by until this point, attacks the men at the thought of losing his rum cake. The bandits flee before Howard can invite them to stay for tea.
