I was sixteen when this was released, A friend and I were obsessed with the bullfrogs 'bom-bom'bom' part and for weeks we would erupt in gales of laughter imitating them. Occasionally we'd sing the whole song through no matter where we were. Got some very pained glances from people several times as the song was being played everywhere and reaching that point where it's just too much of a good thing. British people do seem to love anthropomorphic animals quite a lot. Every so often now the song comes into my head and I find myself singing the bullfrog part as I'm waiting for the kettle to boil. Always makes me smile. My dog thinks I've lost my mind, but he's never heard the song. Maybe it's time I educate him ...
I remember in 1984 the animation team wanted to add glows and sparkles to some sequences so at Infovision where I worked - we used our Quantel Paintbox Computer frame by frame to videotape... Nice memories
My parents had this recorded on a beta tape and I almost wore it out when I was a kid. Truly one of my absolute favorites in addition to "give my regards to broad street".
When my son was on the way I would sing this to him every night and now that he's here I sing it to him before we go to bed. For now I just use the words go to sleep but eventually I will introduce him to the animated film and hopefully he will love it as much as I did.
Having grown up reading hand-me-down Rupert annuals, I'd never seen him on screen so when I saw the VHS in a local video rental shop in 1985 I had to rent it. The tape was in a bad way, a previous borrower must have emptied a hoover bag into their VCR because I was only able to watch it properly once I had run the tape through ours and then used a cleaning tape several times. That's a lot of work for a seven year-old, but it was worth it.
"Rupert" joined our household in 1984. I'd watch the film with my son Matthew, then one year old, sitting on the sofa and I'd sing along, making him laugh and me, laughing back and hugging him. He's now 37 and I'm....hmm. With the re-release, I think it's time we all sit together and relive those happily warm memories. Thank you, Paul, for helping to teach me how to be a dad.
Let’s talk about Rupert and the Frog Song. I remember when I had the VHS. With two bonus cartoons by Paul McCartney’s wife. Known as Linda McCartney. Seaside Woman & The Oriental Nightfish. However, the first logo was Family Home Entertainment. (F.H.E.) Saw it on the Disney channel too. Now I have the DVD, including Tropic Island Hum & Tuesday. It’s better that way.
Me dad bought my siblings and I the Rupert And The Frog Songs VHS back in 1989, and I absolutely fell in love with the video and can't remember how many times I've played it. Till this day when I see frogs, I get the urge to sing We All Stand Together!! This film, in me eyes, is a true classic and I recommend for all to show their children and grandchildren.
Just wonderful hearing this classic which summed up my childhood for me! I loved The Frog Song. My mum absolutely adored it too as she was a fan of Paul McCartney and bought the record and I remember Ladybird bringing the book out. Just the best ever and it still never lost its appeal
Oh my gosh there's must be thousands of frogs in Rupert & The Frog Song. I just can't count them all.
Now my six grandchildren visit and walk around the house making frog sounds to the video......umm Grandpa sings along too.
My Year One class are performing this tomorrow in their assembly. Its going to be brilliant!
I remember riding my motorcycle to see this wonderful film, along with Give My Regards to Broad Street, when I was a teen.
Wow i love it! Gosh i felt like a kid again singing along to the video!! Great work guys enjoyed your site loads!
My nephew is 2 years old and loves this video, I was my favorite when I was young and now it's his!
Rupert is so so so so so so so so so cute, good, beautiful, nice and lovely. We all stand together!
