Sesame Street Rubber Duckie Clip posted on Jun 5th, 2008, 11:23pm
Here's a little trip down memory lane for everyone: a vintage Sesame Street clip for all you rubber duck lovers to enjoy. It seems like almost everyone has heard this song and many people know the refrain: "Rubber Duckie, you're the one! You make bath time so much fun."
We'd also like to take this opportunity to correct two common misconceptions: * FALSE: rubber ducks started with Sesame Street * FALSE: Ernie's rubber duck was a floater (i.e. shaped to float in water and to look like a swimming duck).
Now that we have smashed everything that you ever believed in, here is what is true: * FACT: Rubber ducks existed long before Sesame Street and Ernie's rubber duck * FACT: Ernie's rubber duck was NOT a floater. Study the rubber duck in the video closely. Yup, that's right, the duck is a stander (made to stand or sit on a flat surface) and NOT a floater.
