Belafonte and Miss Piggy, posed for In the Kitchen with Miss Piggy.

Harry Belafonte (b. 1927) is an American singer, actor and humanitarian. He popularized the calypso movement in the mid-1950s with hits such as "Banana Boat Song (Day-O)," "Jamaica Farewell" and "Mama Look at Boo-Boo."

Belafonte has appeared with the Muppets on numerous occasions.

Although an article about Sesame Street in the January 1970 issue of Jack and Jill mentions him among a listing of celebrities expected to appear on the show, he would not appear on the show until season 14.
