During the Talk Spot on episode 215 of The Muppet Show, Kermit the Frog asks Lou Rawls about the secrets of singing jazz. To provide a demonstration, Lou and The Electric Mayhem perform "Bye Bye Blackbird". The bandmembers each get a chance to scat during the number.

During the song, Lou Rawls sings a list of birds, ending with Big Bird.
