"Little Things" has been recorded many times for Sesame Street, by its composer Joe Raposo, and by Prairie Dawn among others.

Tony Bennett later performed the song with Lexine. (First: Episode 3402)

In two episodes of season 31, an instrumental of the song is used for the score. In Episode 3851, it accompanies a sequence of ballet dancers performing in chairs. In Episode 3860, the music is used as underscore as Telly contemplates on the miracle of birth, after witnessing his pet hamster Chuckie Sue deliver four babies.

The segment was remade with animation by Misseri Studio, and used to directly follow the story of "Little Big Bird" in Episode 4108. A newer recording was also made with a solo bass vocalist.

In the direct-to-video, Abby in Wonderland, the animated remake was included and sung by Abby Cadabby and Elmo.
