Billybunny

Billy Bunny's Animal Songs was released direct-to-video on May 21, 1993. It was the first of the titles in the Muppet Sing-Alongs series.

Kermit the Frog tells the story of Billy Bunny (performed by Kevin Clash), who sings his way through the forest as he runs across a swamp full of frogs, a cave full of rapping bears and a singing porcupine (and even an appearance by one of the ever-present Muppet penguins). Jerry Nelson, Richard Hunt, and Fran Brill performed various animals of the forest, and Carmen Osbahr is credited in one of her first projects with the Muppets.

Taping for the video began in 1990, marking the first Muppet production after Jim Henson's death, and was immediately followed by The Muppets Celebrate Jim Henson.[1] The framing scenes with Kermit, however, were recorded sometime following production of The Muppet Christmas Carol.[note 1] The special was notably the first home video release featuring Steve Whitmire performing Kermit (with The Muppet Christmas Carol premiering on video later that year). It was also one of the last projects Richard Hunt was involved in, who passed away over a year before the video's release.
