The Muppets: CDE Chart of 100 Things in Pop Culture

Haha, I remember when I saw The Muppets (2011) in theaters -- which by the way is an OUTSTANDING movie, definitely on my list of movies to buy on DVD -- there is a scene talking to a TV producer about what is and isn't popular these days (producer played by Rashina Jones.) The chart has 100 little icons on it, and I remember thinking "haha, one day I'll freeze frame that and identify all the little jokes.


Today I did. It's not complete though, because upon reading the title: "Key Demographic Analysis of Top 100 Things in Pop Culture" (Subtitle: Ranked in Order of Relative Popularity.) Then at the bottom of the chart, if you look closely, it reads: "Updated.... 4th week of June of the current Year...", subtitled: "Prepared by the Research & Analysis Department of CDE Television..."

Gonna have to click that for the most detail. I ran out of room to draw lines, and I don't think I could make out every single image, but this is a pretty good job. I love that Lady Gaga is square at the center. But I'll try to list what I can here. (I also found this website that has a working list forming, but incomplete.)
