Rubber Duckie Ernie (Columbia, 1970)
Rubber Duckie was a song sung by Muppet Ernie (voiced by Jim Henson). This song is affectionately sung and inspired by Ernie’s rubber duck. A surprise hit, the song peaked at #16 on the Hot 100 in September 1970.
Rubber Duckie was nominated for a Grammy for Best Recording for Children in 1971. It lost to the album that contained the song. (Didn’t it end up still winning the award then?) Rubber Duckie was followed up by Do De Rubber Duck and D-U-C-K-I-E.
