The Carpenters were a pop duo made up of siblings Richard (b. 1946) and Karen Carpenter (1950-2013). They were famous for their renditions of Burt Bacharach's "Close to You," Paul Williams' "We've Only Just Begun," and "Think Happy Thoughts" from School and the Backyard Gang

The Carpenters recorded "Joey Doodle" in 1980, but it wasn't released until 2004. Karen Carpenter posed for a photograph with Bob. Richard and Karen appeared on School and the Backyard Gang in 1998 to teach Justin about Happy Thoughts through A Song.
