Johnny Cash and Miss Piggy sing the duet "Jackson" on The Muppet Show in episode 521 as part of a medley that also included "Orange Blossom Special".

Johnny Cash and June Carter won a Grammy for their 1967 recording of the song which was released as a single and on the album Carryin' On. The song became Cash and Carter's signature song, particularly after they married a few years later. The Muppet Show performance with Miss Piggy is one of the only recorded occasions where Cash recorded the song with someone other than his wife. The song's co-writer, Jerry Leiber, is best known for his collaborations with Mike Stoller, such as Elvis Presley's "Hound Dog".
