"Kokomo" was released on the Muppet Beach Party album, and was also made into a music video. In the latter, Kermit sings the Beach Boys tune, accompanied by a pair of Whatnot hula dancers, in a beach resort setting. The Swedish Chef appears briefly, battling lobsters, and a slew of characters recycled from previous shows, specials, and movies serve as background atmosphere. Amongst them, Be-Bop performs the steel drums, members of the Inkspots provide chorus and play saxophone, and Coffee Guy is buried in the sand. Other revellers include Harvey, Doris, Duke, Shirley, various pigs, and Laundress. At the climax, Miss Piggy, led out to the resort by Eugene, is aghast and karate chops her frog and the grass skirt girls.
The original lyrics "gave me a tropical contact high" are replaced with "under a tropical island sky", in order to keep with the Muppets' family-friendly nature.
