"Caribbean Amphibian" is a Sesame Street song sung by Kermit the Frog. He wore a Hawaiian shirt and sunglasses, and sat on a small island surrounded by water. The song is about his cousin, who sometimes lives on the water and sometimes on the land. Kermit was backed by a small frog (performed by Kevin Clash), a turtle, and an Anything Muppet calypso band.
The 1999 Magic Talking Kermit the Frog plush doll sang "Caribbean Amphibian."
