Leo Sayer sang his 1977 #1 hit "When I Need You" on episode 302 of The Muppet Show. During the number he is trapped in a tree by a bear. The bear is joined by a number of other woodland animals, including a beaver and a woodpecker, and they try to down the tree. Crazy Harry finally gets Leo down by blowing up the tree.

Sayer's recording of the song also appeared on his album "Endless Flight".

When Kermit guest hosted The Tonight Show in 1979, Miss Piggy and Sayer sang a duet of the song.
