The song references the titles of fourteen of Shakespeare's plays. and was originally written for Kiss Me Kate, a backstage musical variation of The Taming of the Shrew, which focused on putting together a production of the play.

Christopher Reeve, Fozzie Bear, Link Hogthrob, and a skull named Yorick sing "Brush Up Your Shakespeare" as part of a Hamlet sketch on episode 418 of The Muppet Show.
