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

On Sesame Street, the song was performed by Tony, who needs a date for the Fireman's Ball. When his date cancels, he asks her over the phone if she knows someone who can. As he sings the song, there's a knock at his door and a female monster appears as his new date. She chases him around his apartment before picking him up and carrying him out.

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