Jim Henson, who created The Muppets, was the voice of Kermit The Frog. Even though "Rainbow Connection" is not intentionally about immigration, it is an appropriate interpretation. Immigrants came and come to this country to follow their dreams, to follow the rainbow to the country "where the streets are paved with gold". Dennis from Anchorage, AkJim Henson sang this as Kermit. He also was the voice for Ernie on Sesame Street, who sang Rubber Duckie, which was actually a charting hit in about 1969 (maybe 1970)
