"The Whiffenpoof Song" was performed by a flock of sheep in episode 419 of The Muppet Show. The a capella group sings and members wag their tails as the Wolf takes them out one by one. When he gets to the last of the group, he is confronted by Super Sheep who defeats the wolf with a dissolvatron.

"The Whiffenpoof Song" is the signature number of the Yale University Whiffenpoofs. The chorus is derived from the poem "Gentlemen Rankers" by Rudyard Kipling. At the time of this episode, the same chorus could be heard in the beginning of the television series, Baa Baa Black Sheep.
