During a race to the broadcast room in order to deliver a tape in Elmopalooza, Big Bird passes through the set of Late Night where Conan O'Brien is interviewing the Martians. Andy Richter can also be seen in this very short bit.
In an appearance on The Tonight Show on March 27, 2008, O'Brien discussed being recognized on the street, saying:
|“||A lot of people can blend in...but you and I are like Muppets, you know. We're very, we have distinctive looks, you know. And I'm just like, when I put on a hat and glasses I'm like Big Bird putting on a hat and glasses. People just think, "Oh, Big Bird's trying to walk down the street" and I'm like (accompanied by walking motions) GALOMPH, GALOMPH, GALOMPH, you know, (in a high voice) leave me alone!"||”|
