Picture Segment Description
Guess what Elmo's thinking about today? Elmo opens his (singing) door to a chorus of kids singing the "Elmo's World Theme." The following film includes children singing "Sing," "The Alphabet Song," and "Happy Birthday to You," a mother singing to a baby "Brahms' Lullaby," and a boy singing the final lyric of the "Elmo's World Theme"..
On home video releases, "Happy Birthday to You" is edited out.
Dorothy's Question Dorothy wants to know how you sing.
The Noodle Family Mr. Noodle's brother Mr. Noodle cackles like a rooster, moos like a cow, gargles, and quacks like a duck before he lip-syncs to "La donna è mobile" of Giuseppi Verdi's Rigoletto from a radio player.
Kids and Baby Three kids sing "Row, Row, Row Your Boat" as a round.
Elmo's Question Elmo counts pigs in a barbershop quartet, who sing "Sweet Adeline" until they're pulled away by a stage hook.
Quiz Elmo wonders what sings and what doesn't. Dogs do. Pineapples don't, but Elmo can sing with a pineapple. Clocks don't, unless it's a cuckoo clock. Bathtubs don't, but Ernie sings in the bathtub. He appears with his Rubber Duckie to sing a verse of "Rubber Duckie." The original album recording with Jim Henson's vocals is used here.

After the quiz, the pig barbershop quartet resume singing until they're pulled away once more.

Film Elmo's friend Samantha learns how to participate in a playground-style hand-clapping/singing game.
TV Cartoon The Singing Channel features the Lecture Lady singing "The Itsy Bitsy Spider." After the song, the spider sings "I'm a Little Teapot" with her. Stay tuned for Singing in the Rain.
This portion was seen in Kids' Favorite Songs 2.
On home video releases, "I'm a Little Teapot" is edited out, with the segment ending after the spider first appears to complement the Lecture Lady on performing the previous song.
Interview Elmo sings to opera singer Diva D'Abruzzo who illustrates that she can sing high, low, fast and slow. They sing in an opera style.
Tickle Me Land Dorothy imagines Elmo as The Three Elmos, Elvis Presley and a rapper.
Home Video In the video, Big Bird sings a lullaby to his teddy bear Radar. Elmo drowsily turns to the camera and yawns. Back in Elmo's World, Elmo is fast asleep until TV nudges him awake.

The Sing Song Elmo and Diva D'Abruzzo sing the "Sing Song."


  • The recording of Verdi's "La donna e mobile" that Mr. Noodle lip-syncs to is from a 1971 performance of Rigoletto. A co-production of the Ambrosian Opera Chorus and the London Symphony Orchestra and Chorus, tenor Luciano Pavarotti sang as the Duke of Mantua (and it's his vocals Mr. Noodle lip-syncs to).
