Lady Marple-bug??

Is the Sesame Street animation insert with "Lady Marple-bug" and "The case of the four fliers" (eg. Episode 2963 a reference to Miss Marple?? -- Wendy (talk) 02:17, 18 July 2007 (UTC)

Wow. It certainly sounds like it, though it's hard to be sure without either seeing the insert or having a more detailed description. -- Andrew Leal (talk) 02:55, 18 July 2007 (UTC)
Having finally seen the sketch in English, thanks to the new Sesame video player, I went ahead and added it, since the name and context make it a definite reference (though Miss Marble is a closer parody). -- Andrew Leal (talk) 18:01, 7 December 2007 (UTC)

Author relevance

copied from Danny's Talk Page Not to pee in Andrew's Cheerio's, re: Agatha Christie, but isn't the reference being made to the character of Poirot in Muppets Tonight? If we're citing authors when they weren't directly being referenced, then the Star Trek article could be Gene Roddenbury, no? -- Scott, Scarecroe 15:34, 28 April 2006 (UTC)

Yeah, I have an Hercule Poirot page, *but* there's also a reference to Witness for the Prosecution from Muppet Babies, and the planned but unfinished project Muppets on the Orient Express (which indirectly evokes the Christie works). I guess Gene Roddenberry could have a page, but in this case, it's more than one character/work being invoked, and the actor connections belong to multiple productions, not a single franchise. It's up to you, I guess, having now effectively put me off my breakfast by associating bodily fluids with cereal. --Andrew, Aleal 15:54, 28 April 2006 (UTC)
Yeah, I figured that was the first of a number of examples. -- Danny Toughpigs 17:25, 28 April 2006 (UTC)
Ah, I didn't realize Christie had more references. I guess it makes as much sense as having a page for Lewis Carroll, or any other author used in multiple. But a page for "The Great Bird of the Galaxy" would be silly. -- Scott, Scarecroe 22:53, 28 April 2006 (UTC)
