Freaks and Geeks is a TV series created by Paul Feig that aired on NBC during the 1999–2000 television season. Set in the early 1980s, the show follows high schooler Lindsay Weir and her gang of "freaks", and her younger brother Sam and his group of "geeks".


  • In the episode "Girlfriends and Boyfriends," Cindy Sanders says to Bill Haverchuck, "Well, I don't really watch TV. Except for The Muppet Show." Cindy also keeps a copy of Miss Piggy's Guide to Life in her bedroom, which Bill peruses.
  • Later in the same episode, Bill insists Cindy's abnormal since "she eats carrot sticks and likes Miss Piggy." His friend Sam Weir rebuffs him with "So what, the Muppets are cool." Bill: "The Swedish Chef is kind of cool, but Miss Piggy's lame." Neal Schweiber chimes in, "Look, Professor Honeydew is hysterical!"
