"The First Time It Happens" was written for The Great Muppet Caper. Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy sing it at The Dubonnet Club as they dance together, starting as a slow production number and eventually becoming more upbeat. Footage from this sequence appeared in The Muppets Go to the Movies.
The song was later used over a montage of Miss Piggy clips in The Muppets: A Celebration of 30 Years, and the orchestra played an instrumental version of the song as Miss Piggy made her entrance.
- Seth MacFarlane covered the song on his 2017 album In Full Swing.
