Jarrod Fairclough – Over the years Conan O’Brien has made a lot of Muppet references on his show. He had the recurring character ‘Vomiting Kermit’ (literally what you imagine it to be), Elmo appeared and defended red heads from bullies, and in 2012 they introduced ‘The Mars Grover’. So it’s safe to say that Conan and his team are very familiar with The Muppets and Sesame Street. That didn’t stop Conan however stating that Sam the Eagle appeared on Sesame Street during an interview with Fred Armisen.
A fan contacted him for his regular segment ‘Fan Corrections’ to let him know that he was dead wrong, and in typical Conan fashion, he responded. You can see the video by clicking the image below (embedding doesn’t seem to be working!), but be warned that there’s some cursing, and your kid might freak out at Sam the Eagle saying a bad word.
Thanks to our pals at Team Coco for sending this through!
