From Muppet Wiki

Isaac Newton was a physicist, mathematician, astronomer and philosopher who famously described what would become the law of gravity. Newton often claimed that the revelation came to him after witnessing an apple falling from a tree. Exaggerations of this story have gone on to suggest that the apple hit Newton on his head, thus knocking the idea into his mind.
