** Bleeding Gums was a special guest on Series/TheCosbyShow in 1986. The scene parodies the fact that quite some famous jazz musicians like Music/DizzieGillespie, Music/TitoPuente and Music/LenaHorne were once guests on the show. It also references Creator/BillCosby's tendency to clown around, talking gibberish and focus most of the attention to himself, exaggerated here to the point that Bleeding Gums doesn't even have a line. ** Bleeding Gums appears in the sky to Lisa, together with Mufasa from WesternAnimation/TheLionKing, Darth Vader from Film/StarWars and Creator/SteveAllen saying ''This is CNN'', all references to the fact that Creator/JamesEarlJones voiced these characters.
