Spitting Image Sends Up Moonlighting's Bruce Willis & Cybill Shepherd
The British Satire program, Spitting Image aired regularly on the BBC from 1984-1996. It featured famous characters in British and international life re-created in the form of latex puppets, which -- in the manner of newspaper political cartoons -- grossly exaggerated that person's most obvious facial or personality characteristic.
In an April 1988 episode named "The Ron and Nancy Show" created as a special for U.S. television, the central action of the episode is a satire on President and Nancy Reagan wherein there is a 45th anniversary party celebration. In attendance at the party in addition to the Reagans are many celebrities of the time: Bill Cosby, Slyvester Stallone, Tina Turner, Jack Nicholson, Bob Hope, to name a few. Two well known faces from TV are there too: Moonlighting's Cybill Shepherd and Bruce Willis. They are only on screen for a few seconds, but each snippet manages to send up specific aspects of their relationship and/or public persona.
