Muppet Sing-Alongs Muppet Treasure Island - Let the Good Shine Out (1996) (Lyric version)

Let the Good Shine Out is a song that was performed by Kermit as a finale of the sing-along video Muppet Sing-Alongs: Muppet Treasure Island where he tried to convince Clueless Morgan, Polly Lobster, and Mad Monty to become good rather than being bad. His song doesn't convince them, but Kermit is always hope. The instrumental version of the song was used during the closing credits of the video.

Music Video

When Kermit came up with an idea to convince those pirates to becoming good, the idea was to sing the song to them before he commands the viewer to sing along to get the pirates to sing and then runs off. As Kermit starts singing after the Black Dog scratches his shirt, he stares at him while he moves around him and growls at him then we move onto the spot where Mr. Curly Twirly and Old Tom pushing Walleye Pike with one of the noises playing the sound effect that comes from the printer. Three pirates turn around and we go onto the three other pirates dancing while making noises and one of them yawns before Kermit takes off. Two native pigs stare at Kermit after dancing to the center of the screen and as he sings, they look at each other and they dance along with him. We zoom and pan away from the drum being played by a pig while the other two dance back and forth and Kermit side dances and jumps. We hear Clueless Morgan singing "Oh" a few times and Polly smacks him on one of the phrases and Morgan chuckles afterwards. Back at the spot where Kermit left off at, they tilt dance before Old Tom taps Kermit once and put his hand in Walleye Pike's mouth while Mr. Curly Twirly feels that pike. We see Kermit getting kissed by a girl pirate and we head over to the pig tribes humming with one moment with a pig playing the drums. Two pigs left and then right and immediately after Kermit runs to the five pirates at the grass, they sing along with him. Mad Monty states that he gets bored without a pistol, Morgan thinks it feels right to be wrong and three pirates say they've been pirates for a long time. Moments after Kermit sings his statements, the girl pirate comes and sings the rest of the phrases where they should let the good shine out. The same scene of the Pig tribes is played and two pirates hum while four sing. After all pirates there sing together, we transit to the scene where Polly swims at the ocean and Morgan, Monty, and Kermit sing on the boat with a seagull on it. On the wrap up, everyone sings together near the grass and trees. Kermit then sings the final lines "Let the Good Shine Out", then we zoom out and finally, the song finishes with the pirates cheering and laughing.

Variants

Shown on the left is the original take for the lyric version of the music video. On the right, it displays an alternative take that was intended to be used for the video, but was put in use for the bonus featurette in the blu-ray release of Muppet Treasure Island in the combo "Of Pirates & Pigs Collection".

  • On the Blu-ray release of Muppet Treasure Island in the "Of Pirates & Pigs Collection" released in 2013, the introduction at the beginning was cut and the shot toward the end was replaced by an alternative take which was not used in the video.

Music/Sound Variants

  • On the Blu-ray release of Muppet Treasure Island in the "Of Pirates & Pigs Collection" released in 2013, the sound effects were edited out and a remix of the music was used.

Editor's note

On some shots, a gradient fading was applied onto the video which is meant for the sky which makes Mudwell's top hair and the pig tribe's feathers to fade through it.
