possible homage by weezer[edit]

does anyone think the harmonics might sound the same as those in Weezer's Freak Me Out?, and that Weezer might've been making an homage, or using a sample? 104.33.114.195 (talk) 04:32, 16 April 2017 (UTC)

Indiscriminate information[edit]

The In popular culture section has been tagged since March for cleanup, but that has not been done, so I have moved it here rather than removing it completely. It can sometimes be difficult to judge when information is indiscriminate per MOS:CULTURALREFS (and as mocked in this cartoon), and when it is encyclopaedic and useful. The best way to judge if information is worthwhile is when an independent reliable source mentions it, particularly as part of an explanatory discussion of the topic rather than as part of a trivia list. If the reference is in an article on another topic (such as the Muppets) then the more appropriate place for such information would likely to be in an article on that topic.

In popular culture[edit]

The Muppet Show episode 221 partly rewrote the song to be an anti-hunting song. The song is performed by forest animal Muppets, who are periodically interrupted by rampaging human game hunter Muppets.<ref>{{cite web|last=Kurp|first=Josh|title=Ten Skits That Prove 'The Muppet Show' Was For Adults More Than Kids|url=http://www.uproxx.com/tv/2011/11/ten-skits-that-prove-the-muppet-show-was-for-adults-more-than-kids/#ixzz2jElPSds2|publisher=Warming Glow|accessdate=30 October 2013}}</ref>
