"With a Little Help from My Friends" is a Beatles song performed by Janice, some pagan pigs and their Sacrificial Idol in episode 419 of The Muppet Show. Janice ultimately gets rescued by Dr. Teeth, Animal, Floyd and Zoot at the end of the number.

Joe Cocker remade the song, a version of which was spoofed on Sesame Street as the song "With a Little Yelp from My Friends."

The Electric Mayhem later performed the song during their appearance at the 2016 Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival along with backup from the Oakland's Interfaith Gospel Choir. They did so again at The Muppets Take the Bowl show.


  • When all pigs sing in the final, the Sacrificial Idol's voice is heard, but he is touching his saxophone at the same time.
