Fozzie as Jack Horner.

Little Jack Horner is a nursery rhyme which was first published in 1764, but dates back further. Legend ties the rhyme to Thomas Horner, steward to the last abbot of Glastonbury, and who transported a pie with deeds to a dozen manors hidden in it, discovering the deeds during his journey.

  • In the Colambo segment titled, "Colambo: The Great Plum Plunder", Colambo decides to have a piece of Christmas pie, when he notices a plum missing from it. He asks the janitor, Little Jack Horner (performed by Jerry Nelson), some questions about what he was doing in the corner. It turns out that Jack had stuck in his thumb and pulled out the plum.(EKA: Episode 3121)
  • In a 2005 episode of Sesame Street, Prairie Dawn is reporting for "Nursery Rhyme News," where Goldilocks is ruining nursery rhymes. As Jack (performed by Matt Vogel) recites his poem, and prepares to stick his thumb into the pie, Goldilocks beats him to the punch, pulling out the plumb.
  • Katie Couric interviews Jack (performed by Jerry Nelson again) in Hooper's Store in a 1995 episode of Sesame Street for a "Inside Sesame Street" news segment. Jack has recently given up eating with his thumb, and has tried using parts of his face to eat his pie, with less-than-satisfactory results: he stuck in his hair and pulled out a pear, then stuck in his snout and pulled out a trout, etc. He vows to make a comeback, however, then sticks his thumb in the pie and accidentally flings a plum into Katie's eye.
