What Makes You Happy?
Sing It, Elmo!
|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).
