M11 Apes parody trailer

Planet of the Apes refers to a 1968 film and the franchise that followed in its wake.

References

  • In episode 205 of Muppets Tonight, Ernst Stavros Grouper tells Kermit that he's now to be known as Virgil the Monkey because monkeys test better with audiences. He justifies the order saying that no one's ever heard of "Planet of the Frogs" (suggesting a connection to Kermit's new monkey designation and their primate cousin apes as seen in the film series).
  • A status update on the Muppets official Facebook page claimed that they had several ideas for The Muppets spoof trailers, including "Rise of the Planet of the Prawns" (referencing Pepe the King Prawn and the recently released Rise of the Planet of the Apes).[1] The trailer was subsequently released on Blu-ray without the Prawns reference.
