The show was spoofed on Sesame Street with "Real Grouches", hosted by Oscar the Grouch. Oscar says it's the show that "searches the world for interesting real-life Grouches and brings them right into your living room."
Oscar's guests were Romeo Scuggs from Gila Monster, New Mexico, Luba Merquick from Slime Bottom, Arkansas, and "Bob the Blob". While the previous guests played terrible music, the Blob plays "yucky sweet flute music", and it is revealed that it is Bob disguised as a Grouch.
