Kermit the Frog – The Rainbow Connection

Kermit the Frog sings The Rainbow Connection in The Muppet Movie. It was nominated for Best Song at the 1979 Academy Awards.

There are more rainbows in the archives, as well as these two video gems: Jim Henson making puppets on tv in 1969 and visual thinking with Harry the Hipster and Kermit in 1959.
