Muppet Monday: Can the Frog Tap Dance?

I’m never shocked by the talents of Kermit the Frog.

Host of The Muppet Show. TV Reporter. Singer. Banjo Player. Musical writer. Journalist.

What an over-achiever!

In Season 2 of The Muppet Show, Kermit opens the show just as he always does… a welcome, news on their guest star, but this time… we notice Kermit is dressed up a little fancier. Normally he is in his ” less is more” look but today Kermit is donning a dapper looking suit. For good reason too. He’s answering a fan question.

Can he tap dance?

Before that cute little penguin movie, “Happy Feet” was a song sung by jazz singer Cab Calloway.

I’ve got those
 little tapping toes
And when I hear a tune
I can’t control my dancing heels
To save my soul!

Kermit pulls out all the moves in this video — but we never see his feet. Did you notice that? For some reason, this doesn’t bother me so much. His over-emphasized arm gestures and his smiling face are enough for me!

The Muppet Show also shows off some fancy camera work! Who doesn’t want to see so many Kermits at once?

As soon as I saw this sketch, I knew it was perfect for Monday — upbeat, enthusiastic — the best way to start off a week!
