Jumpjive
Written by Cab Calloway, Frank Froeba & Jack Palmer
Date 1939
First Episode 1575

"Jumpin' Jive" is a Cab Calloway song that Calloway performed in Sesame Street's twelfth season with the Two-Headed Monster.

Calloway discovers the monster debating over whether they should jump or jive. Calloway explains that they should get into the "cooperation groove," leading to his performance of the song on a nightclub stage in front of dining Anything Muppets.

Like "Hi-De-Ho Man", there is a call-and-response section, with the repetition of the nonsensical phrase, "Hep hep!"
