    LOL, I actually found a picture of him online. Do you know how to post it in a thread, so you can all have a look.

    I will have to go with the Rainbow Connection. I don't like how on TV soemtimes in ads, there's this new sort of rappy version of Bein Green, which relates more to the environment, and less to Kermit, and how at then time when it was made, wasn't the song more about race? I can't be sure.

    The song was about Kermit and his struggles wth being different in general.

    Well you're both right, the song was about Kermit struggling and finally accepting the way he was. And the sentiment was very much identified with the Civil Rights movement at that time. :)

    I'm not a fan of people re-doing songs, but I don't mind Bein' Green used for environmental messages as well. :)

    I love both of them but I think Rainbow Connection evokes more emotion out of me (though Bein' Green is touching, too).

    I really enjoy Rowlf's:sympathy: version of Bein' Green from the Muppet Show and Big Bird's:wisdom: version at Jim's memorial

    I think "Bein' Green" is Kermit's signature song whereas "Rainbow Connection" is for all the Muppets in the Muppet world in general much like "When you wish upon a star" is to all Disney characters. That's just my opinion.

    I sang Rainbow Connection at a bar in kareoke the other night. I was drunk. I did my best Kermit but I didn't do the song justice.

    Well at least you had the guts to actually sing that song at a bar. I've sung "Happiness Hotel" "Can You Picture That" and a couple other more upbeat tunes at Karaoke events myself.

    Ya got good tastes! I've been thinking of making my Puppets do a rendition of "The Time Warp" and possibly even "Wild and Untamed Things" from that show.
