"New York, New York" is the theme from the Martin Scorsese film of the same name.

The song was performed by various Muppets on stage in 1985 for Night of 100 Stars. They appear in a bus driven by Fozzie Bear and include Count von Count, Grover, Telly Monster, Oscar the Grouch, Ernie, Bert, Janice, Floyd Pepper, Dr. Teeth, Scooter, Rowlf, Dr. Bunsen Honeydew, Beaker, The Swedish Chef, Gonzo, Uncle Traveling Matt, and Statler and Waldorf. Kermit the Frog pops up, as the only soloist in the group, and Barkley stands outside, punctuating the finale with a chorus of barks.

In 2009, Elmo joined Ricky Gervais at Carnegie Hall for a rendition of the number on stage in a special performance.[1]
