Muppet Mentions

  • In Who Censored Roger Rabbit? (with the plot differing from the film), Roger and one of his bosses are murdered. Leaving Roger's home after finding the body, detective Eddie Valiant discovers a clue" "a plastic squeeze toy in the shape of Kermit the Frog." The toy Kermit's eyes bug out and its tongue sticks out when squeezed. The toy is shown twice more to others involved in the case (and the last mention omits Kermit's name).

References

  • Baby Bean Bunny goes missing in the 1990 Muppet Babies episode "Whose Tale Is It, Anyway?" and takes on the persona of a number of lagomorphic characters from various stories. When Janice captures something in a box-and-stick trap, it's revealed to be Baby Rowlf playing the part of Eddie Valiant riding Benny the Cab. Bean overhears him looking for a tall rabbit in red overalls and funny cheeks, and responds to himself: "oh p-p-p-please," after Charles Fleischer's recognizable voice tick for Roger Rabbit. Later, in song, Bean appears as the character in an attempt to keep up with everyone's expectations.
