"With a Little Help from My Friends" is a Beatles song performed by Janice, some pagan pigs and their Sacrificial Idol in episode 419 of The Muppet Show. Janice ultimately gets rescued by Dr. Teeth, Animal, Floyd and Zoot at the end of the number.
The Electric Mayhem later performed the song, specifically the Joe Cocker arrangement, during their appearance at the 2016 Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival along with backup from Oakland's Interfaith Gospel Choir. The same arrangement was used as the encore for both The Muppets Take the Bowl (joined by Fred Martin and the Levite Camp Choir) and The Muppets Take the O2.
The Muppets (repurposing the same recording as the live shows) performed the song with James Corden on The Late Late Show with James Corden in June 2020. The backing choir vocals were recorded by the Muppet performers themselves from their homes, and mixed by Ed Mitchell.
