If you have a habit of sleeping at night, you most likely missed Kermit the Frog joining ABC’s overnight show World News Now for a banjo and accordian rendition of the enduring “World News Polka” with WNN’s “polkamaster” Barry Mitchell.

Lyrics include “neighbors tell us it’s half-past-three/tell ’em that it’s news to me,” and Kermit’s confession that he’s not unfamiliar with polkas since he’s a tad Polish.
