Johann Sebastian Bach (1685–1750) was a German composer, organist, harpsichordist, violist, and violinist during the Baroque period.


  • A season one film insert on Sesame Street uses his composition "Gavotte," as performed by the Swingle Singers, during a film about cleaning.


  • The theme song for the Sesame Street segment "Alphabet Chat" features the alphabet sung to Bach's Fugue No. 2 from The Well-Tempered Klavier.
  • "Minuet in G major" is often misattributed as a Bach composition, but has since been named one by German composer Christian Petzold. Despite this, the piece has been referred to as a Bach composition by Prairie Dawn in a sketch where she and Elmo play a duet of the song (First: Episode 2988). Gordon also acknowledges Bach as composer when he performs the tune on the flute in Episode 3803.
