This Little Piggy is a traditional English nursery rhyme and fingerplay. It has been used (and referenced) in numerous Muppet productions.
- In The Sesame Street Players Present Mother Goose, the rhyme is acted out by Grover, Betty Lou, Cookie Monster, Herry Monster and Ernie.
- On the Sesame Street album Kids' Favorite Songs, The Oinker Sisters sing an uptempo arrangement of the rhyme. This version was also used on the video of the same title, in which they join Elmo in a dream he has.
- In a Sesame Street News Flash sketch, Kermit thinks he's interviewing the Three Little Pigs, but instead finds himself at the house of five piges, who are pigs from the rhyme.
- The title of the Muppet Babies episode "This Little Piggy Went to Hollywood," is a play on the rhyme.
- In a 1992 episode of Sesame Street, a sad farmer tells Gina about how all his pigs are leaving him. The story behind each pig follows the rhyme, with a twist on the last one; instead of going "wee-wee-wee," all the way home, the farmer states that the last pig, Georgie, is actually going to Hawaii.
- In another 1992 episode, Snuffy recites the rhyme while counting Big Bird's toes. When it's realized that he has an extra "little piggy" leftover, Big Bird says that "little piggy" was on "Squeal of Fortune," which segues into said segment.
- In a 1997 episode, Oscar the Grouch reads to Slimey a wormy variation of the story, titled This Little Worm.
- In a 2008 episode, when Telly needs to subtract a pig from the seven that are present in order to save Number 6 Day, one spotted pig volunteers to go "wee-wee-wee," all the way home for a roast beef sandwich.
- In Super Grover 2.0 sketch, Grover encounters two pigs, who start many of their sentences saying "This little piggy..."
