Muppetsmith Black Mambazo


Some things just hit you funny, you know?

Kermit the Frog singing with Ladysmith Black Mambazo, first reciting the alphabet, then singing a tiny story in which most of the words start with a succeeding letter of the alphabet. The set is very elaborate, allowing for three rows of puppets among the thickets, lots of little frogs and things.

I don't know why I love this so much. It is not a childhood memory -- it dates circa 1989, when I was eighteen and no longer watching, or thinking about, Sesame Street.

Yet for some reason I love this very much. As in, I almost get teary with joy while I watch it. Don't know. Hey, let's watch it again...
