Gorgon Heap eats Wayne during the song "Some Enchanted Evening" while Wanda protests.

"Some Enchanted Evening," the popular standard from the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical South Pacific, is a song about love at first sight. It has been performed and referenced by the Muppets on several occasions.

The Ed Sullivan Show

  • referenced during the "Octopus' Garden" sketch on the March 1, 1970 appearance. The Octopus that keeps interrupting the song with bad puns tells the following knock-knock joke:
Octopus: Knock knock.
Clam: Who's there?
Octopus: Salmon.
Clam: Salmon who?
Octopus: "Salmon-chanted evening..."

The Muppet Show

Play-Along Video

  • Referenced on Hey, You're as Funny as Fozzie Bear. A comedy bit similar to the one from The Ed Sullivan Show features the punchline "Sam and Janet Evening" instead of "Salmon-chanted evening."

Sesame Street
