Mama Fiama makes a great pasta sauce -- so good that Martin Short can't help but eat so much in Muppets Tonight episode 110 that he gets as big as a house. In 2005, she FedExed some of her sauce to Jerry Lewis for his telethon. On his way to deliver the sauce to Jerry, Sal spilled the entire contents, leading he and Johnny to sing a rendition of "Bohemian Rhapsody".
A framed portrait of Mama Fiama was included with the Johnny Fiama Action Figure.
In 2017, she was a minor character in Muppets Meet the Classics: The Phantom of the Opera.
