As promised, here’s the episode of “The Muppet Show” in which Gonzo is given the chance to move to Bombay and star in a movie. I’d hoped that there would be at least one Bollywood gag, but it’s mostly about Gonzo saying goodbye to everyone and then (unsurprising spoiler!) getting a letter that the offer had been withdrawn. Still, it’s ostensibly a Bollywood reference on a mainstream American show from 1979, which is pretty unusual.
MUPPETY BONUS: In promoting the latest Muppet movie, Disney created a number of trailers that were spoofs or references to other films. One of them declares that the Muppets are taking over Bollywood - but it turns out to be a typo, of course. :( Check it out here.
