    Back in the early 1990's my kids had a cassette tape that was a true staple of any car-riding experience. For the life of me, I can't recall the name of the tape and only fragments of the songs contained therein. I'd really love to have it again. If anyone can help me locate any information on it, I'd appreciate it. It was Kermit the frog and had a song about seatbelt safety that was called "Buckle up, Buckle up, Seatbelts on"...though that may be a snipped of lyrics. It also had a song about cars of different colors, including one that was chartreuse. Another song about going to grandma's and packing all sorts of crazy items including a clock and a pickle and an egg. Kermit didn't sing the songs, but did the tape intro and song lead-ins. I don't recall any other muppets being included. Would love to find any info on this cassette. (At this point, just to prove my sanity!) Thanks!!

    Hmm...interesting. I'll look around for you and see what I can find.

    Just making sure...do you know it was Kermit for sure and not Ernie, since their voices are similar?

    Nearly positive it was Kermit. And, thanks, Hubert!!

    A friend found it for me!! It's called Are We There Yet? Songs for Tiny Travelers and it came out in 1989! (It's actually listed in the Audio collectibles section of this site!) Now to find (another) one of my very own!! Any clues on that?

    Released 1989 by Longmeadow Press. Lyrics by Louise Gikow and Ellen Weiss. Illustrated by Dennis Hockerman. Executive Producer: Geri Van Rees. Producers: Peter Fish, Louise Gikow, Benjamin Goldstein, and Geri Van Rees. Book/tape set, 24 pages.

    EDIT: Disregard this, then. You put your post in ahead of mine, so I didn't see yours when I wrote this...

    Found it! It's called "Are We There Yet: Songs for Tiny Travelers" Here's the Muppet Wiki page for it: http://muppet.wikia.com/wiki/Are_We_There_Yet?:_Songs_for_Tiny_Travelers

    Made in 1989, it also came with a book with music and lyrics in them. The only difference between your description is that it appears Kermit did sing the songs, but maybe he didn't, I don't know.

    As to where to find it: maybe you could post this in the MUP3 thread on this forum and see if anyone here has it that they could give you as an MP3. Also you could just keep checking ebay or something like that, I would imagine one would eventually show up.

    Thanks, Hubert! I'll give that a try! As for singing talents on the cassette itself, it's possible Kermit did a couple songs, but I'm pretty sure not all of them. Of course, it's been a lot of years and considerably more snow on the roof than back in those days...LOL!

    Maddi - I too would love to find this cassette. Were you able to find it?

    I've checked amazon, ebay and plenty of other vendors, but haven't found a copy yet. One of my kids found a youtube vid of a child singing one of the songs (Grandma Called), but that's the closest I've come.

    Sorry, I'd never heard of it 'til now myself. When I saw the title of this thread though, I had to jump in! I've been interested on and off over the past several years in tracking down cassettes I had as a kid in MP3 form. I've managed to get my hands on a couple. If you'd wanted Hop Like a Bunny, Waddle like a Duck or Wee Sing Nursery Rhymes and Lullabies, I would've been able to help! lol

    I have been sorting some of my old Muppet Items and found what I believe is the tape and book set for Are We There Yet? It is a Sing Along made by Jim Henson Records and BMG Kidz. The one I have is mint in the plastic packaging . Are you still interested in obtaining this book and tape? I am willing to part with it for $10 and shipping. You can either send me back a message here or email me at patpierce@comcast.net. I can then take pictures and send them to you via email.
    Happy Thanksgiving!

    Never heard of it before.But I remember traveling in the car w/my younger siblings listening to this cassette tape of songs from "Wee Sing" . (It wasn't Muppet or Jim Henson oriented but they had different categories: "Wee Sing America":"Wee Sing Silly Songs" "Wee Sing Christmas" etc.) It drove my parents NUTS but it kept my younger brother & sister quiet.
