Some Turkish Whatnots sing about Whirling Wanda the "Girlfriend of the Whirling Dervish" for the UK Spot on episode 518 of The Muppet Show.

"Girlfriend of the Whirling Dervish" was written by Harry Warren, Al Dubin and Johnny Mercer, and first appeared in the 1938 film "Garden of the Moon" where it was performed (with several extra verses) by a turban-wearing big band, and a drag "girlfriend." The song was recorded in 1960 by lounge artist Martin Denny, and was sung by Porky Pig in the Warner Brothers cartoon "Ali Baba Bound."
