"Swanee", a standard American show-tune first popularized by Al Jolson in the musical Sinbad, was performed twice on The Muppet Show.

In episode 402, the song was performed by German penguins and pigs.

In episode 501, the song can be heard during a backstage sequence, playing as Prince Rudolph performs onstage with his invisible cheeseburger.
