"Gone with the Wind" is a classic song of love that is lost, like leaves or smoke that blow away with the wind. It was a #1 hit for Horace Heidt in 1937, the year it was first published, and has since become a standard. The vivid imagery lends itself readily to dramatization.
- In Season 1 of Sesame Street, Guy Smiley sang the song to a young woman. During the song, a very strong wind blows, making the leaves fly off the tree, causing the woman's house to collapse, and finally ripping Guy's clothes off. This segment first appeared in Episode 0034.
- A sample of "Gone with the Wind" was used in the Sesame Street segment "The Weather Show" in Season 3.
- Jim Nabors later performed it in episode 106 of The Muppet Show. Jim and a red-haired female Whatnot are out in the country. The wind grows stronger as the song progresses, eventually blowing everything away including Jim's pants. This sketch was cut from The Muppet Show: Season One DVD set, however the scene appears fully intact on the German release of the episode, including the optional English sound track.
