Hot Fuzz is a 2007 comedy directed by Edgar Wright, the second of his "Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy" featuring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost.
- In one scene, Sergeant Nicholas Angel (Pegg) tells PC Danny Butterman (Frost) the story of how he always wanted to become a policeman. At one point, he adds "Barring the summer of 1979, when I wanted to be Kermit the Frog." When he finishes, Butterman comments, "I think you'd have made a great Muppet."
- The DVD's "Fuzz Facts" text commentary explains that Simon Pegg's favorite Muppet is actually Animal, which didn't fit the character.
