Suspiciously Specific Denial: Puppet Shows
  • In the Roger Miller episode of The Muppet Show, the theater is swept with an epidemic of "Cluckitus", a disease that causes anyone infected to turn into a chicken. Kermit, worried that the news of this affliction may upset the guest star, orders that the epidemic be kept secret (an impossible feat, as Muppets-turned-chickens retain their normal voices). This leads to a specific denial from Robin:
    Robin: We aren't turning into chickens!
    • Robin's denial became even more suspicious just a minute later, when he caught it.
  • In The Muppets, the credits insist that the Big Bad Corrupt Corporate Executive's Heel-Face Turn has absolutely nothing to do with brain damage from Gonzo hitting him in the head with a bowling ball.
  • The National Anthem of Troller's Gill in Roger And The Rottentrolls (which also plays as the end credits roll) alleges that Rottentrolls are 'not at all totally, utterly stark-raving mad!'
