YoB&E: Day 175--Honker-Duckie-Dinger Jamboree

It seems like I've kind of just been going through the motions this week, so today I wanted to do something special.

Today we have a song by Chris Cerf, and I feel a little bit conflicted about posting it because not only does it tend to stick in one's head, but it's also hard to sing on account of tongue-twisting lyrics. Kind of a double whammy. But I'm posting it anyway, because it's cute and fun, and because there's nifty behind-the-scenes footage that goes with it.

I never noticed Rubber Duckie's little hat and neckerchief before now. Cute!

(Click here to watch the behind-the-scenes footage.)

I have tremendous respect, and quite a bit of sympathy, for the puppeteers who have to perform right hands. It's a rare case in which one succeeds at the job by NOT distinguishing oneself, and I imagine that that's probably counterintuitive for a lot of performers. In this specific case, as much as it would have been an honor to work so closely with Jim Henson, it looks like it must have been hard to keep up with him as well. Poor Ed Christie looks like he's about to fall over a couple times.
