"I Talk to the Trees" is Link Hogthrob's singing debut, which he performs on episode 205 of The Muppet Show while wandering through a forest. Contrary to the lyrics, however, the realistic-looking trees not only listen to Link but talk back. Interrupting the song after its second line, they express their distaste with the number and immediately shuffle offstage.

The trees were voiced by Frank Oz, Jerry Nelson, Richard Hunt, and Dave Goelz.
