Happy Rubber Ducky Day!!

 
Did you know that every year on January 13th Ernie's famous Rubber Ducky from Sesame Street celebrates a birthday?
 
 
Arty, do you think our friends have ever heard Ernie sing the rubber ducky song?? 

 MAMAMAMA, can you share the video you played for us yesterday, some people may not know about Rubber Ducky!
 
 
 


Mama insisted on posting the "Vintage" video from 1973 (you know, from the time before dinosaurs roamed the earth), because that is the one she originally watched.
(You can also view it HERE on YouTube) 
 
 Isn't it a fun song?? I really LOVED all the squeakies the rubber ducky makes!!

 
 
 
 Yes Sunny, it is a nice song but Rubber Duckies have been around for longer than 1973. It seems that in the year 1928 a Mr. Landon Smart Lawrence patented the first official "Rubber Ducky"
 
 

 So Happy Birthday Rubber Ducky, we love you!!
Welllll,  as long as we don't have to take a bath to play with you!

  2. Neither Gail nor I had heard that rubber ducky song (Sesame Street was not on TV in the UK during her childhood). But we love it now!

  11. My ghostwriter remembers when Sesame Street first started. And, yeah, there were dinosaurs walking the Earth then. Hehehehehe.

  12. Mom loves that song, and the original is just great!!! When the grands were babies and stayed here most weekdays, there were many rubber ducky bathtub times here with lots of singing.

  20. You all are so cute with your little (and big) duckies. We would love to play with the ducky but agree that we wouldn't want to do it in a bath.
