Sesame Street: African Alphabet with Kermit

English: Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Innsbruck, A...

“African Alphabet” is a Sesame Street song performed by Kermit the Frog and a group of Anything Muppets voiced by the South African a capella group Ladysmith Black Mambazo. The AM group is made up of five different patterns: Fat Blue, Lavender, Pumpkin, Purple, and Reddish Magenta. The creatures of the savanna, including numerous frogs and birds, sing along as well.

Rather than simply recounting the letters of the alphabet, the song tells a short story in which each word begins with a consecutive letter of the alphabet.

Ladysmith Black Mambazo also performed the song with Paul Simon, this time appearing as themselves on-screen.
