"Before and After" is a Sesame Street song from the first season.

As a part of "Silly Song Time," a group of wild Anything Muppets gather to sing about the opposites. Before they sing, they clear their throats and do a vocal warm up. In between the verses, we see Buddy figuring out how to eat his slice of cake, aided by an unseen voice (Frank Oz). Eventually, he's left to his own devices and causes a mess when he tries to eat his cake before he opens his mouth.

In season two, the song was re-edited, replacing the scenes featuring Buddy with new ones featuring the human cast, Big Bird and Oscar. (First: Episode 0188)
