Sesame Street Amigo

Betty Lou and Carlos sing "Amigo."

"Amigo" is a Sesame Street song about friendship and multiculturalism that first aired in 1985.

When a new kid moves to Betty Lou's neighborhood, she wants to get to know him, but he doesn't speak any English, so she asks her bilingual friend Carlos to teach her some words in Spanish. Carlos then teaches her "hola" (hello), "buenos dias" (good morning), "buenas tardes" (good afternoon), and most importantly, "amigo" (friend).

The song was later performed by Luis and Rosita in Episode 3813, and then in Episode 4262 by the entire cast.

On Plaza SΓ©samo, the Mexican co-production of Sesame Street, the lyrics were reversed, and the song became "My Friend," with Carlos teaching a Spanish-speaking Betty Lou some English words.
