    Here's my list:

    1.) The Fraggles
    2.) The Pajanimals
    3.) Sid the Science Kid and friends
    4.) Dinosaur Train cast
    5.) Bear and his friends from the Big Blue House
    6.) Puppet Up! puppets
    7.) Wilson and Ditch
    8.) Bobby and Samson
    9.) Augie and Del
    10.) Late Night Liars puppets

    That's about all I can come up with. Your ideas? (BTW, I'd love it if the puppeteers and voices of the characters mentioned could actually sing this song...)

    I think it would be highly amusing and very cringey to watch the crew of moya from Farscape sing it with maybe Scopius and some Scarrens humming in the background.

    I agree to that!

    BTW, I wonder if anyone asked the Muppeteers themselves about singing that particular song as the character I described? (I can definitely see Gobo and his uncle Traveling Matt singing this as a duet, or Sweetpea Sue singing it herself.)

    No offense fans, but anybody but Sid the Science Kid...they'd only analyze rainbows....

    I'd like it if the Fraggles would sing that song as well as Emmet Otter, his Ma and his friends from the jug-band sing it, too, in memory of Emmet's pa.

    And as I pointed out earlier, I think the Pajanimals could easily do a great cover of this song... especially in Sweetpea Sue's case. Given how well she sings, especially on a certain lullaby of theirs that has roughly two million views on YouTube...

    I just thought about this, what if all the characters from The Wubbulous World of Dr. Seuss sang this song? I think it'd be interesting, maybe even sing it as a tribute to both Jim Henson and Dr. Seuss. Just a thought.

    There is an odd bit character in The Hoobs (not one of the main ones), I don't know what the character is called there, but it is a minor one, and well if you know the character I mean you will know why I can see that one singing this song.

    Maybe, somewhere in The Jim Henson Hour, they could've done a sort of high-tech remix version of " The Rainbow Connection." Besides that, I could seriously see Big Bird starting out on the first verse of it, then all the humans and Muppets, and everybody on the Street just joining in as the song goes on.

    For some reason, all I can think of is Kermit going back to the Fraggle hole (from A Muppet Family Christmas) and teaching Gobo how to play it on Gobo's guitar. Pretty weird. And I apologize for being up Kermit, because he's a Muppet. :o

    Roma, maybe?

    Didn't they make a Rainbow Connection remix for the MFS soundtrack?
