"You Made Me Love You" is a romantic standard first popularized by Al Jolson, later performed at the Ziegfeld Follies, and still later by Judy Garland, as a tribute to Clark Gable called "Dear Mr. Gable."
George Burns performed it in The Muppet Show episode 210, as a medley with "It All Depends on You." Rowlf accompanied on piano, and backing chorus included Miss Piggy, Gonzo, Scooter, Nigel, Blue Frackle, Baskerville and Miss Mousey. Gonzo in particular gets caught up in the "didn't want to do it" refrain.
Later, the song was performed by Cookie Monster on Sesame Street. Spoofing the "Dear Mr. Gable" version, it begins with a "Dear Mr. Cookie" prologue, as Cookie Monster sings about his favorite pastry. This version features some slightly changed lyrics, as written by Sonia Manzano. (First: Episode 3456)
