Gene Kelly: Was he really against doing Singin' in the Rain?

    Does anyone know if Gene Kelly actually wanted to refuse to do Singin' In The Rain as a condition of his appearance on The Muppet Show, or was it just something cooked up between him and the writers? The fact that he only did it as a very spare, short version with no dancing does suggest that he had to be persuaded in real life as well as in character.

    Considering Gene didn't want to sing the song, I wonder how he felt about having to do it anyway (otherwise the show wouldn't have a happy ending).
