Disney Sing Along Songs: Count it Higher
is a Sing Along video released in 1990 hosted by Kermit the Frog. In this video, Kermit hosts a music show as he shows his nephew Robin about songs in his days with a little help from his friends, Gonzo, Grover, Scooter, and Prairie Dawn. This was released around March of 1990, marking one of Jim Henson's last performances as Kermit before his death. Just follow Mickey on the bouncing ball. When it was re-released on DVD in 2003, it included a commentary by Christopher Cerf and Frank Oz

Notes

  • The entire framing material takes place out in the arbor on Sesame Street
  • Instead of the usual Sing Along Songs background, The Muppet Show Season 3 closing footage was used instead at the end, eventually leading to the comment from the Kaye Ballard episode. Rowlf: "Well, you must admit, Nigel, this does sound a little square." Nigel: "Play, hound! Play!"
