Sesame Street "Caribbean Amphibian" with Kermit

Original performance.


Elmopalooza performance.

"Caribbean Amphibian" on Sesame Street song sung by Kermit the Frog in 1986. He wore a Hawaiian shirt and sunglasses, and sat on a small island surrounded by water. The song is about his cousin, who sometimes lives on the water and sometimes on the land. Kermit was backed by a small frog (performed by Kevin Clash), a turtle, and some Hawaiian Anything Muppets.

Kermit later sang this song with Jimmy Buffet in the TV special Elmopalooza, intertwined with animated sequences by Sally Cruikshank.

The 1999 Magic Talking Kermit the Frog plush doll sang "Caribbean Amphibian".
