Muppet Show AppearancesEdit
The Crow's Nest relates most obviously to Muppets Treasure Island and the crow's nest seen in the Sailing for Adventure song.
Looking a little deeper...
In The Muppet Show Episode 507, the Special Guest Glenda Jackson reveals herself as "Black Jackson" the notorious pirate. She ties up Kermit, takes over the show and sets sail, with the whole muppet theatre as her boat. (1980)
Was this sailing theatre the inspiration for Terry Gilliam's "Crimson Permanent Assurance" (1983) - where accountants-turned-pirates hijack their office building and sail away " across the accountant-seas"?
At the show's conclusion, Statler and Waldorf sit in the crow's nest, and Statler muses "I wonder why they call this the crow's nest?"
Answering, the crow sits up, "Get outta my nest, ya dummies!"
