From "Physical Education"


From "Conspiracy Theories and Interior Design"

Community is a comedy series broadcast on NBC since 2009. The series, created by Dan Harmon, focuses on the adventures of a group of students at a fictional community college in Colorado.

In interviews, series creator Dan Harmon has compared the character of Abed to other sitcom "shamanic" characters, such as Reverend Jim on Taxi, Snoopy from "Peanuts", and Gonzo.[1]


  • During their 2012 appearance on The Soup, Statler and Waldorf stated that they were there to fulfill their community service obligations; they then quipped that it was the longest anyone has gone on the show without mentioning "community."

    At the end of the show, the two congratulated McHale for being able to get through an entire show without an appearance from a "Community" castmember. McHale said he thought they were made from parts of Chevy Chase.

Muppet Mentions

  • In the first season episode, "Introduction to Statistics," Troy and Abed share the following exchange using a gruff, Batman voice:
Troy: I'm Batman.
Abed: You sound like Cookie Monster.
  • In the first season episode "Comparative Religion," a thug refers to Abed as "Bert-face."
  • In the first season episode "Physical Education," Troy and Abed act out a scene as Ernie and Bert. Troy returns a book to Abed because he's got his own copy, which is really just the contents of Abed's book, which is now empty. The pair eat cookies together with crumbs falling out of their mouths, and Abed only uses the side of his hand to move objects just as Bert, an arm-and-rod style puppet, would.
  • In a deleted scene for the episode "Modern Warfare", Troy leaves a voice mail message for Abed in the voice of Kermit the Frog.
  • In the first season episode "English as a Second Language" Señor Chang explains to Jeff that he faked his college degree to become a professor. "I did what anyone would do. I faked my way into a job as a Spanish teacher at a community college, relying on phrases from Sesame Street."
  • In the second season episode "Aerodynamics of Gender":
Meghan: Look at your face. It's like your mom was a lizard who got raped by a Muppet.
Chang: That there was brought you by the letter S, as in snap!
  • In the second season episode "Conspiracy Theories and Interior Design" Jeff Winger stands next to a campus poster that reads "It actually is easy being green!"
  • The second season episode "Mixology Certification" includes extensive referencing to Farscape throughout the episode. In the episode, Abed has an ongoing conversation with a man he meets at a bar (played by Paul F. Tompkins) about the Henson series Farscape. Abed and the man (who struck-up the conversation with Abed with the line "was Scorpius half Scaran, half Peacekeeper? Frell, yes!") discuss wormholes, time travel, and the differences between season 1 and season 3. Actor Danny Pudi said of the episode: "I think Abed is just very excited to discuss Farscape with someone because there’s not many people in Abed’s life that can actually speak about it and so it’s Abed yearning to communicate with someone."[2]
