This entire episode of Cold Case is centered around The Rocky Horror Picture Show, with several clips from the film, numerous songs from the soundtrack being played during flashback segments, and to top it all off Barry Bostwick playing the serial killer Roy Brigham Anthony (while also appearing on-screen as Brad Majors). Originally aired on May 1st, 2005.
Connie and Carla (Time Warp)Connie and Carla (Time Warp) - 31 seconds (540x404, 30 fps, 3.5 MB). The drag duo of "Peaches N'Cream" (a.k.a. Stephen Spinella and Alec Mapa) perform The Time Warp at an audition in the 2004 film Connie and Carla.
Drew Carey Show (New York and Queens)Drew Carey Show (New York and Queens) - 4 minutes 36 seconds (508x380, 30 fps, 30.9 MB). The "New York and Queens" episode from the second season of The Drew Carey Show (originally aired on May 14th, 1997) features Drew Carey and company trying to attend a midnight showing of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. They arrive at the theater to discover that Rocky Horror has instead been replaced by The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert which has its own cadre of costumed fans, led of course by Drew's arch-rival Mimi. This leads to a "dance off", with The Time Warp battling against "Shake Your Groove Thing". Cast members from Midnight Insanity in Long Beach, California were also used as costumed extras standing in line.
Fame (Rocky Horror Picture Show Part 2)Fame (Rocky Horror Picture Show Part 2) - 2 minutes 34 seconds (646x360, 24 fps, 17.1 MB). Characters Doris Finsecker and Ralph Garcey watch The Rocky Horror Picture Show at the 8th Street Playhouse in New York City, from the 1980 film Fame. Doris is later inspired to run on stage and join the performers for The Time Warp. Continued from Part 1, in which fan club president Sal Piro warmed up the audience.
Ripa Horror Picture ShowRipa Horror Picture Show - 3 minutes 24 seconds (540x405, 30 fps, 22.8 MB). From the RipaRocks.com web site comes this Live with Regis & Kelly fanvid, set to The Time Warp from the Rocky Horror Picture Show soundtrack. I'm not sure why this particular fanvid amused me so much, but it did...:-)
Baile del Sapo (Time Warp) by 1986 Mexican CastBaile del Sapo (Time Warp) by 1986 Mexican Cast - 4 minutes 40 seconds (320x240, 30 fps, 10.1 MB). Recorded as a music video for television by this production of El Show De Terror De Rocky (i.e. The Rocky Horror Show). Performers include José Flores as Riff Raff, Martha Escobar as Magenta, Alejandra Espejo as Colombia, and Manuel Gurría as El Criminólogo (the Narrator).
Time Warp and Sweet Transvestite (With Bob Simon as Dr. Frank-N-Furter) by 1996/97 European TourTime Warp and Sweet Transvestite (With Bob Simon as Dr. Frank-N-Furter) by 1996/97 European Tour - 8 minutes 4 seconds (320x240, 25 fps, 16.6 MB). Excellent video from the 1996/97 European Tour of The Rocky Horror Show, performing both The Time Warp and Sweet Transvestite in their entirety. Bob Simon is featured here as Dr. Frank-N-Furter, who some may remember from the Frankie Goes To Hollywood Convention in California (he's also seen in the footage from that convention on the A Regular Frankie Fan DVD).
Time Warp (2001-04-20, featuring Joan Jett as Columbia) by 2001 Broadway CastTime Warp (2001-04-20, featuring Joan Jett as Columbia) by 2001 Broadway Cast - 5 minutes 23 seconds (540x400, 30 fps, 36.1 MB). Bootleg audience tape from the Broadway Cast of The Rocky Horror Show on April 20th, 2001. As is usual for such tapes, the quality is terrible and there are people in the way periodically. But it's likely the only way most of us will be able to see or hear any of Joan Jett's performance as Columbia, as she was unfortunately not part of the cast album. The usual Columbia tap dance here is replaced by a Joan Jett guitar solo. Other performers include Raúl Esparza as Riff Raff, Daphne Rubin-Vega as Magenta, Kristen Lee Kelly as Janet, Jarrod Emick as Brad, and Dick Cavett as the Narrator.
Time Warp (2001-11-18, featuring Sebastian Bach as Riff Raff) by 2001 Broadway CastTime Warp (2001-11-18, featuring Sebastian Bach as Riff Raff) by 2001 Broadway Cast - 5 minutes 21 seconds (352x260, 30 fps, 35.8 MB). Bootleg audience tape from the Broadway Cast of The Rocky Horror Show on November 18th, 2001. As is usual for such tapes, the quality is pretty terrible. Sebastian Bach (from Skid Row) joined the production as Riff Raff when it re-opened around Halloween 2001. Other performers here include Daphne Rubin-Vega as Magenta, Liz Larsen as Columbia, Kristen Lee Kelly as Janet, Jarrod Emick as Brad, and Gilbert Gottfried as the Narrator.

The 2001 Broadway Cast of The Rocky Horror Show appear live at the 55th Annual Tony Awards, representing their nomination for 'Best Revival of a Musical' (they were beat out by 42nd Street). Cast members performing The Time Warp are Dick Cavett, Tom Hewitt, Alice Ripley, Jarrod Emick, Mark Price, Kristen Lee Kelly, Daphne Rubin-Vega, Lea DeLaria, Sebastian LaCause, and The Company. They even get Gwyneth Paltrow out of her seat and dancing with them... lovely! Originally aired on June 3rd, 2001.
Sweet Transvestite / Time Warp Medley (2008-11-01) by 2008 Australian CastSweet Transvestite / Time Warp Medley (2008-11-01) by 2008 Australian Cast - 5 minutes 19 seconds (651x360, 25 fps, 36.8 MB).

Chico Slimani is voted off the show here, and gives a farewell performance of The Time Warp. Fast forward four minutes to go directly to the performance and bypass all the "so sorry to see you go, lets have some flashback clips" crap.
Time Warp by DamianTime Warp by Damian - 4 minutes 6 seconds (450x360, 25 fps, 18.7 MB). Music video for Damian's late 1980s rendition of The Time Warp. He appears in several different flamboyant outfits, which admittedly make me think more of a clown and less of say Boy George. The segments where he's dancing The Time Warp with various people on the street are highly amusing, though.
Balla coi Barlafüs by Elio e le Storie TeseBalla coi Barlafüs by Elio e le Storie Tese - 1 minute 39 seconds (320x240, 25 fps, 3.9 MB). An Italian language parody of The Time Warp, by Elio e le Storie Tese. The video's opening credits state that it is a program of Gialappa's Band with Aldo, Giovanni, Giacomo, et al. The sets and costumes were very nicely done for this parody, and the jock strap Transylvanian amuses me every time I watch this...:-)
Time Warp (Megasztár) by Magdolna RúzsaTime Warp (Megasztár) by Magdolna Rúzsa - 2 minutes 27 seconds (480x360, 25 fps, 16.4 MB). From the third season of Megasztár (Hungarian Idol). Magdolna Rúzsa was the eventual winner, and is seen performing The Time Warp here (in English).
