Dr. Teeth, Floyd and Gonzo sing "When You're Smiling" backstage as part of a medley intended to cheer up Fozzie during the UK Spot in episode 506 of The Muppet Show. The song is a swing standard, made famous by Louis Armstrong.

The song was previously performed by a sobbing Rowlf and Jimmy Dean on episode 126 of The Jimmy Dean Show. They reprised the song in episode 304, with the lyrics replacing "Smiling" with "Laughing."

The song was also performed during the first season of Sesame Street in Episode 0028 over a photo montage of various Sesame Street residents.
