Time Travel Trip of the Day: The Muppet Show References Doctor Who
Our Adorable Past
One of the things about The Muppet Show that isn’t obvious to the casual observer is that it was filmed in England because even with the success of Sesame Street (or perhaps because of it), the only production company interested in trying to produce a Muppet series for adults was Associated Television in Elstree, England. While this was great for the Star Wars episode, because props and costumes could literally be wheeled down the street from the sets of The Empire Strikes Back, it was a bit of an annoying hurdle for all of the American celebrities the show was trying to attract as guest stars. But despite its technical nation of origin, according to Anthony Strand, this is the only mention of Doctor Who that ever made it on the show.
