* ''Series/TheMuppetShow'' staged a duet of the song with guest host and comedienne Gilda Radner and a seven-foot tall talking carrot. The scene bore an ironic resemblance to another scene in ''Pirates'', as Radner had requested a six-foot tall talking ''parrot'', but was misheard.
** In the AwardShow episode, Scooter employed the tune to list all of the guest stars that had been on the show.
