Date 1939

"We'll Meet Again" is a song made famous by British singer Vera Lynn during World War II, as an optimistic reflection on happier times to come (and later used, ironically, for the closing montage in the Peter Sellers/Stanley Kubrick movie Dr. Strangelove, or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb).

The song closed the 1981 special The Muppets Go to the Movies. After the World War II spoof "A Frog Too Far," Lily Tomlin and the Muppets sing the song, then cutting to settings and characters (including Dudley Moore in various guises) from the special's other movie tributes singing along. The last portion returns to Tomlin and her WWII co-stars. At the end of the song, the camera zooms back, first showing other Muppets singing while the movie plays on the screen, and then revealing a shot of the Muppet Theater exterior.

The song was also spoofed as "Veal Meat Again" in episode 112 of The Jim Henson Hour, sung by Sam and Ella. During the song "Friendship" on The Muppet Show, a group of whaler pigs sing "Whale meet again. Don't know where, don't know when."

When the song was performed on the final episode of The Colbert Report, Big Bird and Cookie Monster were among the dozens of guests that returned to sing and help bring the show to a close.
