"On My Pond" is an environmental Sesame Street song sung by Kermit the Frog, about not throwing trash into ponds. He is backed by a group of fish. The pond is constantly polluted by various Anything Muppets (picnicking family, a garbage man, and a boater) who fill it with trash, smoke, and noise (from a loud radio). Eventually, they realize their mistakes and clean up their trash.
