Harry Connick, Jr. (b. 1967) recorded a My Favorite Sesame Street Moments segment for Sesame Street Season 35. He talked about a scene where all of the characters are sitting on the brownstone steps in the special Sesame Street: 20 and Still Counting, and how it represents people from all walks of life, and how it shows that everyone is important and despite our differences we can be friends. The segment aired before Episode 4080.
Harry appeared, ostensibly to play a song from his Christmas CD, on the November 13, 2008 broadcast of The Today Show ("The Muppets Take Over Today"). He was interrupted part way through, as the actual Today hosts retook the show from their Whatnot counterparts.
- When Katie Couric quit as show host for The Today Show on NBC, there was a segment where first Al Gore, then Harry Connick, Jr., and then Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy, sent her their best wishes. (video link)
- In 2008, Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy appeared on Christmas in Rockefeller Center to introduce Connick, Jr.'s performance.
