Gilda Radner performs I Am the Very Model of a Modern Major General with a Seven-foot-tall Talking Carrot on episode 304 of The Muppet Show, as part of a medley of songs from The Pirates of Penzance.

Scooter performs a modified version of the song in episode 412 of The Muppet Show, replacing the lyrics with a list of guest stars.

In the 1984 stage show The Muppet Show On Tour, Dr. Bunsen Honeydew sang a spoof version of the song called "I Am the Very Model of a Scientific Scientist", with spoof lyrics by Paul Walberg.

In The Muppet Show Comic Book: The Treasure of Peg-Leg Wilson, during the "H.M.S. Pinafore" finale, the cast sings their version of "I Am the Very Model of a Modern Major General" called, "We Are the Very Model of a Band Upon a Treasure Hunt".
