The original 1980s version was spoofed in the style of an MTV music video (filmed in front of a black background), with MacTV VJ Old MacDonald introducing the song ("for fans of good music and pork bellies"). It also features MTV-style captions that refer to "Deutsche Hamaphone Records" at the beginning of the video.
A new version was filmed in 1993, intercutting the Oinker Sisters with shots of children in the park, and prominently featured tap dancing by Savion. As with early all-star epics like "Put Down the Duckie" and "Monster in the Mirror", a raft of celebrities also appeared, including Bill Irwin and David Shiner (interacting with Savion), Maya Angelou, Garth Brooks, Ruth Buzzi (as Gladys Ormphby), Michael Chang, John Goodman, Kevin Kline, Cheech Marin, the Neville Brothers, Rosie O'Donnell, Bert (footage from "Doin' the Pigeon"), Marisa Tomei and Sally Jessy Raphael. (First: Episode 3233) When this version was used in the special Sesame Street Jam: A Musical Celebration, Raphael was omitted and some alternate shots of the Neville Brothers are used to compensate.
