In a series of strips that ran November 16, 1981, The Muppets comic featured a group of singing and dancing worms called "The Wormettes."
During their appearance at The Secret Policeman's Ball in 2012, Statler and Waldorf reminisced about their youth: Waldorf saying "Can you believe it, Statler? Radio City Music Hall... we're heckling in the big leagues now." and Statler adding "Remember when we used to come here as kids and watch the Rockettes?" with Waldorf replying "Oh yeah! And then they covered over that hole in the dressing room wall!"
