The Story Behind the Rubber Duckie Song - TOA Waters

The Story Behind the Rubber Duckie Song

“Rubber ducky, you’re the one. You make bath time lots of fun.”

TOA Waters is willing to bet that reading the opening lines of this post without breaking out into spontaneous song is no easy feat. So many are familiar with the iconic Sesame Street scene picturing Ernie describing an ideal bath.

Surrounded by suds, he finds a rubber ducky and proceeds to serenade it with the song that many of our children play at band concerts and the song that so many can’t get out of their heads.

To many, the song is a classic, but where did it come from?

The iconic tune is named after Enrie’s rubber duck named Rubber Duckie. It was written by Jeff Moss and arranged by Joe Raposo and first appeared on Sesame Street on February 25, 1970.

It’s fair to say it has passed the test of time. Be sure to tuck that little fact into your back pocket for trivia night, and don’t hesitate to belt out the tune as you settle into your next TOA bath!
