"Splish Splash" is a 1958 song performed and co-written by Bobby Darin. It was written with DJ Murray the K (Murray Kaufman), who bet that Darin couldn't write a song that started out with the words, "Splish Splash, I was takin' a bath", as suggested by Murray's mother, Jean Kaufman. The song was credited to Bobby Darin and "Jean Murray" (a compilation of their names) to avoid any hint of payola. The song helped to give Darin a major boost in his career, reaching number 3 in the U.S. pop singles charts.

Muppet performances

  • The original Bobby Darin recording of the song was also featured in a documentary segment on Sesame Street. In this one, employees at New York City's Bronx Zoo wash the elephants.
