"Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Old Oak Tree," a #1 Hit for the group Dawn, is parodied by "Terry Louise" (aka Mary Louise) and her friend the frog, who audition for The Muppet Show in episode 208 with the number "Tie a Yellow Ribbit Round the Old Oak Tree."

It was also sung in the Dinosaurs episode "Driving Miss Ethyl," first by Ethyl Phillips and later by her son-in-law Earl in an effort for her to cheer up after learning that her high school friends are dead.

In the second issue of BOOM! Studios's Muppet Robin Hood comic, a palace guard played by Uncle Deadly comments that the villain Prince John (Johnny Fiama's) idea of a party is clapping his hands while singing Tie A Yellow Ribbon Around The Old Oak Tree (sic).
