"Spinning Wheel" was a hit from the self-titled second album of Blood, Sweat & Tears in 1969.

The song is performed by Teresa Brewer while Sweetums pushes her on a swing in episode 222 of The Muppet Show. The set decoration is reminiscent of Jean-Honoré Fragonard's painting The Swing.

A "quiet" trio of Anything Muppets, comprised of Professor Hastings, a Green drummer who also sang lead (Jim Henson), and a Pumpkin Muppet named Professor Goldfinch (Carroll Spinney), also performed the song during the first season of Sesame Street. (First: Episode 0012)
