Last week on Monday Night Raw, the wrestling program that just keeps plugging along, whether we pay attention to it or not, featured a very special guest appearance by none other than the Muppets. The fuzzy characters seem to be pounding the pavement early, shilling their newest film to anyone who will listen.

Sure, the WWE is notoriously unscrupulous when it comes to who it will cross-market with, but I would think that the sanctity of the Muppets would keep them from getting roped into a dog-and-pony show such as this. Well, they weren’t.

TV boasts a long history of ill-advised guests appearances and promotional stunts. This Muppet one is just the latest, so take a look at the Muppet appearance and eight more. Then go take a shower.

Muppets on Monday Night Raw

As we’ll see, what seems like an inconsequential decision at the time to include an up-and-coming band in a TV show can often prove profoundly bizarre further down the line. The Flaming Lips have established themselves as a pillar of millennial alternative culture and 90210…not so much.

Before they had hacked out an identity, they were pimping their hit “She Don’t Use Jelly” everywhere they could. And this video proves that point beyond a shadow of a doubt.

Harlem Globetrotters on Scooby Doo

In the 1970’s, the Harlem Globetrotters got their own cartoon with Hanna-Barbera. Fair enough. I guess they were popular enough to carry their own show. However, in an attempt to cross-promote, Hanna-Barbera shoehorned the Globetrotters into a Scooby-Doo crossover, i understand the need to market your show, but this happened on no less than three separate occasions.

Individually, I guess the moves make sense in context. Sort of. But even as an eight year-old in the 80’s, I was caught off guard watching these reruns, wondering why the hell the Harlem Globetrotters were being called in to investigate haunted amusement parks.

Bob Dylan Gets Stalked by Fat Guy from ‘Pawn Stars’ (Video) http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/bob-dylan-gets-stalked-by-fat-guy-from-pawn-stars-video/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/bob-dylan-gets-stalked-by-fat-guy-from-pawn-stars-video/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Usually, a living legand like Bob Dylan doesn’t lower himself to something as crass as commercial television. Well, not unless it involves Pepsi, women’s underwear, or “Dharma and Greg.” But America’s poet will come out of hiding on an upcoming episode of the History Channel's “Pawn Stars.” I’ll be deep in the cold, cold ground before I refer to it as just  “History.” Chumlee, the fat guy from the show (by fat guy I mean fattest guy), stalks Dylan and ambushes him outside a hotel. I have no idea if Dylan was in on it, although it is odd that he’s just walking around Vegas with no security. Hopefully the episode won’t inspire a new generation of Mark David Chapman’s. (TV Squad via Vulture) Watch Bob Dylan get accosted by a fat guy after the jump...
