Jack the Bear is a 1993 drama thriller film starring Danny DeVito as a professional clown whose wife dies in a car accident, prompting him to relocate with his two young sons to Oakland, California. His life takes a turn for the worse when his youngest son is kidnapped by a neo-Nazi.
At one point in the film, DeVito's character is watching Sesame Street with his two sons. A clip from the "Full and Empty Cookie Jar" with The Amazing Mumford and Cookie Monster is the insert they watch. Both characters can be seen briefly on TV. DeVito quizzes his younger son during the scene on who the Muppets on screen are.
