The Muppets have covered Electric Light Orchestra‘s classic “Mr. Blue Sky,” a song from their 1977 album, Out of the Blue, as part of YouTube‘s “Dear Earth” special.
The cover features the members of Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem performing on set before getting away on clouds and dropped among a bunch of singing, dancing flowers. Zoot, the blue-haired saxophonist voiced by Dave Goelz, is seen performing an impressive talk-box solo in the middle of the song.
Out of the Blue peaked at No. 4 in both the U.S. and the U.K., while “Mr. Blue Sky” reached No. 6 in the U.K. and No. 35 in the U.S. and has been certified triple platinum by the RIAA.
