Deadliest Catch is a documentary/ series produced for the Discovery Channel. It focuses on a fleet of ships during the Alaskan king crab and C. opilio crab fishing seasons.
- The show is spoofed in the 42nd Season of Sesame Street with the "Heaviest Catch," where Keith Heartburn, captain of the ship "The Gizzard" (a play on one of the featured ships of the series "The Wizard"), hope to find the "Heaviest Catch." Keith is a parody of Keith Colburn, captain of "The Wizard," which has been featured on the series in many seasons. The sketch also parodies the show's theme: "Wanted Dead or Alive" by Bon Jovi.
