The song Skid-dy-mer-rink-adink-aboomp (Means I Love You), known to most as Skinnamarink, originated in the 1910 Broadway musical The Echo, a comedy production by Charles Dillingham.
While the show closed after a few months, the song endured, and was repopularized in the 1950s by Jimmy Durante. In the 1980s, the song's chorus became synonymous in Canada with children's entertainers Sharon, Lois & Bram, who after featuring the song in every episode of The Elephant Show, started a series called Skinnamarink TV.
Spellings of the title include "Skid-dy-mer-rink-adink-aboomp", "Skiddy-Mer-Rink-A-Doo", "Skinamarink", "Skinnamarink", and "Skiddamarink", the original.
In an "Animated Nursery Rhyme" segment, produced for YouTube in 2019, Grover, Elmo, and Abby sing the song as "Skidamarink".
