Abbott and Costello (William "Bud" Abbott, 1895-1974, and Lou Costello, 1906-1959) were an American comedy team who were popular during the 1940s and 1950s, and best known for their comedy routine, "Who's on First?" Abbott served as the devious straight man, and Costello as the stumbling, dimwitted laugh-getter, who would often draw out his signature call, "HEY, ABBOTT!"


  • Ernie's breathy gasps as he relates to Bert, "the staaa, the staaa-tue", in a sketch where the duo travel to Egypt, is inspired by Costello's frightened reaction in Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein.
  • Footage of Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein appears in the Muppet Babies episode "Remote Control Cornballs."
