In popular culture
In the 1969-70 debut season of Sesame Street, a Muppet named Jack sang the song for his Muppet girlfriend Adrienne while throwing away alphabet letter blocks as they were conveyed to him on a conveyor belt in sequential order. At the end of the song, Cookie Monster suddenly appeared, scaring Adrienne away, and told Jack those were his blocks. Jack recited the song in a looser form as he recovered the blocks in alphabetical order and handed them to Cookie, who ate them as he received them.
