The show was spoofed on Muppets Tonight in episode 104 as "The Rats' Patrol", with John Goodman leading a platoon of rats (including Rizzo) against the enemy cheese. As the war is going on, John talks to one of the rats, Indiana, about what he is going to do after the war. Indiana says he plans on cooking his girl and marrying his steak. However after a grenade attack, Indiana ends up split and says to give a message to the steak. In the end, John and the platoon of rats charged into the enemy cheese line not for Indiana, but for the steak.
