Frog Infiltrates Library of Congress

(Kermit the Frog From Video Still)

Watch Librarian of Congress, Dr. Carla Hayden, interview Kermit the Frog on his induction to the 2020 National Recording Registry.

On the shooting of “The Rainbow Connection” video, which features Kermit playing a banjo and singing the beloved song in a swampy setting, Dr. Hayden asked: “Were Mosquitos a problem?” Kermit replied, with his usual froggy sangfroid, “Not at all, they were delicious.”
