Oklahoma! was the first musical written by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II. Based on the play Green Grow the Lilacs, the musical is set in Oklahoma Territory in 1906 and follows the love triangle of cowboy Curly McLain, farm girl Laurey Williams and hired hand Jud Fry.
In a Season 20 sketch on Sesame Street, Kermit the Frog is directing Oklahoma! starring Forgetful Jones, who forgets the starting vowel in the first word of the title song, substituting “Aklahoma!,” “Eeklahoma!,” and “Iklahoma!” instead.
