In the story, Diana asks "Mrs. Liberty" why she speaks with what Diana terms a "City Hall brogue." Liberty answers: "If ye'd studied the history of art in its foreign complications ye'd not need to ask. If ye wasn't so light-headed and giddy ye'd know that I was made by a Dago and presented to the American people on behalf of the French Government for the purpose of welcomin' Irish immigrants into the Dutch city of New York."[1]

In television and film

  • The 1942 Alfred Hitchcock movie Saboteur features a climactic confrontation at the statue, ending in a fall from the torch.[2]
  • The final joke in the 1940s Warner Bros. cartoon Baseball Bugs depicted the statue coming alive and admonishing a ballplayer who was disputing the umpire's call.
  • In the first episode of Futurama, Fry is shot through a transportation tube that has replaced the statue's torch.
  • In the ending of the 1968 film Planet of the Apes, the statue appears decayed and half-buried in sand, serving as painful, undeniable proof to the film's protagonist, Taylor, that he has been on Earth the whole time. (This scene is parodied in the animated comedy Madagascar, the Mel Brooks film Spaceballs, the Kevin Smith film Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, and in two episodes of The Simpsons—one where Homer is an astronaut ("Deep Space Homer"), and another where Troy McClure appears in a Planet of the Apes musical dates Marge's sister Selma to revive his career and quell the rumors about his sexual fetish with fish ("A Fish Called Selma"). It also appears in the beginning of the first Planet of the Apes sequel, Beneath the Planet of the Apes.
  • Beginning in the late 1970s, Miss Piggy has been featured in over a dozen different interpretations of the Statue of Liberty.
  • At the end of Men in Black II, Tommy Lee Jones' character uses the statue's torch to erase the memory of an alien spacecraft from the minds of thousands of New Yorkers.
  • Much of the advertising for the film The Day After Tomorrow (2004) used an image of the Statue of Liberty nearly buried in snow and ice (much like the University of Wisconsin "Pail and Shovel Party" prank), after a storm surge and catastrophic climate change. In this image, the Statue of Liberty is facing the wrong way - West towards New Jersey, with the New York skyline to its right.
  • In the episode of The Critic, Jay Sherman, who inherited a billion dollars from his supposed deceased parents, took some of that money to clean up New York. One of his tasks was him personally lowering himself down to the armpit of the Statue of Liberty and spraying her with a large can of deoderant.
  • In Mel Brooks' History of the World Part I, after escaping the Roman Army in the "The Roman Empire" segment, the gang head to Judea. The Statue of Liberty can be seen in the cityscape.
  • The American Dad episode "A Smith in the Hand" has Stan carving The Statue of Liberty on a wooden plank to kill his urge to masturbate, only to pleasure himself to the picture.
  • In the series Seinfeld, George Costanza works for a time at a fictional company called Kruger Industrial Smoothing. The company is said to have participated in the 1980s restoration of the statue. In a different episode, George and Jerry discuss whether or not the statue was assembled prior to its transportation to America.
  • In the disaster film, Deep Impact the statue is toppled and her severed head pushed into the streets of the city by the tidal wave of water created from the asteroid impact.
  • The statue assists the Ghostbusters to defeat the evil Vigo the Carpathian in the comedy, Ghostbusters II. The statue is shown to move like a human being would. An earlier scene in the film, however, showed the mood slime used to animate the statue could cause solid substances to animate (as a bathtub was shown to become flexible).[3]
  • A pre-release poster for the 1984 film Supergirl was a painting that showed the film's star flying by the Statue of Liberty, which was depicted holding up its torch with its left hand.
  • The statue is one of the first glimpses of the United States seen by Bronson Pinchot's Balki Bartokomous character in the opening credits of the ABC sitcom Perfect Strangers.[citation needed]
  • The climax of the film X-Men took place within the pedestal, museum, inside the statue, and atop the torch of the statue.[citation needed]
  • A 2006 episode of Doctor Who, "New Earth", features a planet 5 billion years in the future on which humans have settled following the end of the world. The Doctor and Rose visit the city of New New York, the fifteenth city of this name since the original. Incorporated into the city is the statue dwarfed by skyscrapers. It is unrevealed if it is the original which has been rescued from Earth before its destruction, or a copy. As New New York is the fifteenth city to hold the name then it is possible the statue is a copy. The statue is also seen in the 2007 episodes "Daleks in Manhattan" and "Evolution of the Daleks", both based in New York in November 1930.
  • In Star Wreck: In the Pirkinning the statue is destroyed by Emperor Pirk's forces as a symbol of the fall of the old world order as the propaganda film narrator proclaims "The time was right for a brave new empire: the P-Fleet was born".
  • Bart Simpson shouts to a boatload of immigrants "Hey, immigrants! Beat it! Country's full!" from the statue in the Simpsons episode "The City of New York vs. Homer Simpson". The official aboard the boat tells the group, "OK people, you heard the lady. Back into the hold. We'll try Canada." The immigrants moan and go back below the deck.
  • The statue frequently appeared in the background of the Disney animated show Gargoyles. It was the setting for the first battle between the gargoyle clan and the main antagonist David Xanatos after the latter was released from prison.
  • In Aftershock: Earthquake in New York, the statue collapses during an earthquake.
  • In the Family Guy episode "I Take Thee Quagmire", Peter Griffin brings Glenn Quagmire the Statue of Liberty's foot as a wedding present because Quagmire has a foot fetish. Later in the episode Adam West sees the foot and believes the statue has been destroyed, parodying the scene with the staue's ruins in Planet of the Apes.
  • In the episode "The Edge" in the cartoon series Gargoyles, the aerial fight between the Gargoyles' clan and the 'Metal Clan' takes place around the statue, with one of the two secondary robot Gargoyles crashing into Lady Liberty's book, the other being shot down and exploding on the lawn of Liberty Isle. The leader Robot Gargoyle is then trapped on top of the Statue's head, and (revealed later on as Xanatos in a power-suit) surrenders, flying off.
  • In an episode of The Simpsons, Grandpa Simpson tells the family about when he first arrived at America, stating that he and his mother and father lived in the statue for a while, until they filled it up with trash and moved.
  • In an ed-isode of Ed, Edd n Eddy, a poorly-built replica of the Statue of Liberty is built to cause an "accident" to befall upon Ed's violin (which he plays very poorly). However, this plan is foiled when Edd gives Wilfred (Rolf's pig) a powerful magnet, which he eats.
  • In The Super Mario Bros. Super Show episode Flatbush Koopa, the Mario Bros. find the statue modified with King Koopa's head on it. This happens again in The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 episode Recycled Koopa, and at the end of the episode, the statue, having returned to normal, praises the Mario Bros..
  • In the teaser trailer for the film Cloverfield, a monster decapitates the Statue and throws its head onto a street in Manhattan. This scene was shown again at the beginning of the second trailer, which also featured a view of the front of the headless statue. The back of the statue was seen on the film poster as well.
