"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. Lily Tomlin served as the lead singer, and was then joined by the cast, with occasional cuts to settings used in the various movie tributes throughout the special. At the end of the song, the camera zoomed back, revealing a shot of the outside of the Muppet Theater.

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.
