    • Regarding the names of Bert and Ernie, as well as the veteran work of Jim Henson and Frank Oz, there are a couple brief Sesame Street allusions made in the 1985 John Landis film Into the Night. The first is a cameo made by Henson himself, playing the "Man on Phone" who is conversing with somebody named "Bernie". The movie's second reference takes place in an airport, where a loudspeaker announcement can be heard paging a "Frank Oznowicz" for a courtesy phone call.
