- In The Sesame Street Players Present Mother Goose, the rhyme is acted out by Grover, Betty Lou, Cookie Monster, Herry Monster and Ernie.

- The title of the Muppet Babies episode "This Little Piggy Went to Hollywood," is a play on the rhyme.
- In Sesame Street Episode 2933, a sad farmer tells Gina about how all his pigs are leaving him. The story behind each pig follows the rhyme, with a twist on the last one; instead of going "wee-wee-wee," all the way home, the farmer states that the last pig, Georgie, is actually going to Hawaii.
- In Sesame Street Episode 2947, Snuffy recites the rhyme while counting Big Bird's toes. When it's realized that he has an extra "little piggy" leftover, Big Bird says that "little piggy" was on "Squeal of Fortune," which segues into said segment.
