Howdy Noon

The Muppetvision 3D queue and preshow area are well known by Disney fans for the many parodies found throughout the area.  This week, we're going to look at one of them featuring Kermit the Frog in a parody of a Hollywood classic.

In the preshow waiting area, there's a poster for a film starring Kermit the Frog called, "Howdy Noon".  The film's tag line is "It's Lunchtime in the Old West!".

The poster is a parody of the Western classic from 1952 "High Noon", starring Gary Cooper.

Whereas High Noon is about a town marshal forced to face a gang of killers alone, Howdy Noon seems to be about eating lunch on time.  This sort of word play in the film's title and tongue-in-cheek humor is classic Muppets.
