HonkAroundtheClockSong.jpg

"Honk Around the Clock" is a Sesame Street song performed, in voice-over, by Christopher Cerf, as the Honkers (including Mr. Honker and Henrietta) honk their noses while dancing around a large clock. At the end, the Honkers dance off honking as the clock moves along with them, followed by a loud crash.

The song was performed by The Count and the Honkers in the Sesame Street Live show, Around the World.

The song's title is based on "Rock Around the Clock" by Bill Haley & his Comets. The music however resembles "Runaround Sue" by Dion & the Belmonts.

Notes

  • The disco background was previously used for several sketches, but this time the disco ball was placed at a different position to serve room for the clock.
