"Help!" is a song written and performed by the Beatles released in 1965.

The song was performed on Sesame Street by Tony. He phones Lulu, inviting her to a dance tonight. When she declines, he asks her if a female friend of hers can fill in. As he launches into the song, a female monster appears at his door and pursues him around the apartment, finally carrying him out by force.

A section of the original Beatles recording is used as the theme for the "Sesamstrasse Hilfe" film series on Sesamstrasse.
