Yankee Doodle and her Turtle.


Great Muppets in American History.

Yankee Doodle is a well-known British/American song, whose origins are unclear. Originally sung by British military officers to mock the colonial "Yankees", the song has become patriotic in America, and is the state anthem of Connecticut.

The painting The Spirit of '76 is also known as Yankee Doodle, and like the painting, the song has been referenced numerous times by the Muppets.
