Kermit the Frog and Robin sang "Friendship" in episode 519 of The Muppet Show while helping a mother and baby whale hide from a band of pig whalers. Kermit to pigs: "Listen, whales are scarcer than hen's teeth these days thanks to you guys." The skit was later adapted into a storybook, The Whale Tale.
Previously, Ethel Merman and Fozzie Bear sang an excerpt from the song during a medley in episode 122. Merman sang the song in Cole Porter's 1939 Broadway musical DuBarry Was a Lady. The song was later interpolated into a revival of the musical Anything Goes.
