    I was watching "Open Sesame"i tonight I recorded it because its on in the day & i'm at work, any I rember the song "a frog in a coconut tree" but the actual skit looks different & new is there another skit of the same song but older.
    If you don't know Open Sesame is 30mins show that has lots of old & new skits put together & comes on Nickeloden on another channel called ABC [Australia Broadcaster Corporation] they have the new sesame street,definately not as good.

    Man, you have a Sesame that actually has both NEW and OLD skits?

    The song you are speaking of is actually titled Caribean Amphibean. DOn't want to get picky, though. Anyway, there are two versions that aired in the US, the original Jim Henson recording and theen there was one with Jimmy Buffett and Steve Whitmire (as Kermit) made for the Elmopalooza special.

    Does this help?

    Hey DrTooth, don't forget that the video version differs from the album version (Kevin's vocals are missing).

    sorry wasn't sure of the title.this one had Kermit on a 1 tree island with another frog in the water & fish that did back up singing or something & they showed a map or the Carribean,the one a vagulay rember had a leafy island & a frog was in the tree [probably getting disotioned now].
    Yes there is a Sesame Street that shows new & old skits but a whlie ago they had just new 3o minute episodes it excluded elmo's world but they obvoisly found mixing old & new is better,there is no Sesame Steet human interation [fix it store]just skits one after the other.

    This was one of my favorite Sesame Street songs growing up.

    Sometiems he lives in the water
    Sometimes he lives on the land
    Sometimes he likes to go sun himself
    On the hot carribean sand.

    Hmmmm, this sounds interesting. Do you (or any other people in Australia on this board) collect episodes of this program? 'Cause I'm thinking I just might wanna do a trade ...

    This is also the song the 30th anniversary kermit sings, except shorter. He sings, "i'm a carribean amphibian, i like to hop in the tropical sea, carribean amphibian, won't yo sing along with me, won't you sing along with me, ribbit ribbit!" Just thought i'd mention it.

    you got the spelling or Carribbean wrong! I ALWAYS get this one wrong!!!! anyways, it is titled Carribbean Amphibian and my favorite version is the one Kermit sings with my hero, Jimmy Buffett (my first concert of his was at the tender age of 6 months) on Elmopalooza. I need to get that video to see my Jimmy again because I do not have any videos of his performances.

    I like that song. It's on the video "The Best of Kermit on Sesame Street". That video ought to put a smile on your face. :)
