Pure Imagination was sung by Ben Vereen in The Muppet Show episode 117, to cheer up a depressed Droop. As Ben sang, one of the Small Bossmen did a dance in the sky, while a group of Muppaphone floated in the air and sang. At the end of the song, they were joined by a variety of creatures, including one of the Bossmen, one of The Gawky Birds, Timmy Monster, and some of The Four Fazoobs.

Vereen's performance was used over a montage of imaginative characters and moments in The Muppets: A Celebration of 30 Years.

39 years later, the Muppets performed the song with Lindsey Stirling and Josh Groban on Stirling's YouTube channel.
