Vintage Jim Henson

This is kinda cute. The voice is clearly Henson (and the banjo player looks like him), and the song is very clever. I have no idea where it came from, though. Doesn't really look like the Muppet Show.

[short time later...]
Ah...the wonders of Google: this site pins it down to a specific episode of The Muppet Show's first season. I love the Internet!

Gorgeous song, beautifully performed as always. This brings back a lot of childhood memories!

It's also worth it for the bass player's gravelly "I don't get it!" at the end. A very "in" joke for musicians, who tend to stereotype bass players as a bit "slow".
