Connie Stevens sang "(They Long to Be) Close to You" to Kermit and Fozzie during the Talk Spot from Episode 102 of The Muppet Show. This was the only Talk Spot in the first season to use a couch instead of a wall as the set.

It was also performed in Episode 505. As a male Muppet sings the song to his lady friend, the birds, stars, and angels mentioned in the lyrics appear -- and then get stuck to the woman.
