"Singin' in the Rain" was the title song from the MGM movie of the same name, released in 1952. It was a hit, however, from the time it was published in 1929, and has been recorded by numerous artists. It was included in the early Hollywood sound movie "The Hollywood Revue of 1929". Other songs from the movie, which themselves were pulled from the library of other MGM films, performed by the Muppets include "You Are My Lucky Star", "Fit as a Fiddle", and "Make 'Em Laugh" (the only new number created for the film)

Sam and Friends

One of the surviving episodes of Sam and Friends. A Muppet with a little girl's voice in the rain lipsynchs to a double-speed version of "Singin' in the Rain". The scene ends with her drowning in a flood.

This episode was broadcast in color.

The Muppet Show

  • When Gene Kelly guest starred in episode 501, the Muppets tried to get him to perform this as the closing number. He refused to sing it, stating that he realized that he could never do as good of a job as he did when he sang it in the movie. Eventually he gave in and sang it backstage.

Sesame Street

  • Prairie Dawn directs Grover in a movie production of the song, but it doesn't rain when it should. (EKA: Episode 3112)
  • Episode 4173 features a brief reference to the song, where during Oscar's musical number, he dons a top hop and swings around the lamppost in the rain with a broken umbrella as a music cue from "Singin' in the Rain" plays.
  • Elmo's World: Singing features a segment where the Lecture Lady advises the audience to stay tuned for Singin' in the Rain, and Elmo's World: Violins advises the audience during a segment that "Stringing in the Rain" is coming up next.

Misc. References

  • In the video game Muppets Studios Presents: You're the Director, the movie title is spoofed as "Singing in the Meteor Shower".
