"Spanish Flea" was also covered by Trudy Pitts on her debut album Introducing the Fabulous Trudy Pitts (1967), by the Doodletown Pipers on The Doodletown Pipers Sing-along '67 (1967) and by Jean-Jacques Perrey and Gershon Kingsley on Kaleidoscopic Vibrations: Spotlight on the Moog, also recorded in 1967.
Julius Wechter himself, with his Baja Marimba Band, recorded the song on the 1971 album As Time Goes By.
The tune has been featured in four episodes of The Simpsons: "The Otto Show", "Team Homer", "Sunday, Cruddy Sunday", and "Natural Born Kissers".
In the fingerprint scene in Rosewood's home in Beverly Hills Cop II, Eddie Murphy (playing Axel Foley) and Judge Reinhold (playing Billy Rosewood) improvised the idea of humming the tune.

The song acts as the opening and closing music to the Fangraphs audio podcast, hosted by Carson Cistulli and it had been used as a YTP source as well as the closing music for Low Limit Futbol hosted by Joe Uccello, Ben The Machine Agombar, Mike Orr and Roberto Rojas.
It was mashed up with American rapper Snoop Dogg's "Drop It Like It's Hot" on You Tube.
With endless travel together and no time off (unless it’s due to injury), it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise that Paige and Del Rio are dating.
