50 Years Ago: Ernie Sings “Rubber Ducky” In the Bathtub

Rubber ducky, you're the one! Still!

It became one of the biggest songs of the early 70’s and is was sang by a muppet!

No joke, it WAS a genuine global phenomenon: After premiering on episode 78 of Sesame Street, February 25, 1970, it spent nine weeks on the Billboard 100 and peaked at #16.

Not only was everyone singing it, but a rubber ducky was on everyone’s Christmas list!

It’s a song that we still know and love to this very day!

Rubber ducky, you’re the one…you make bath time lots of fun…
