"Oh, G (I Love That Letter)" is a Sesame Street song sung by two Anything Muppets about the letter G.

The song begins when the male AM (voiced by Christopher Cerf) sings the letter G, and the female AM (voiced by Marilyn Sokol) responds by singing out the two different sounds G makes to the tune of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony. The song changes to a rock and roll style, and the two singers are joined by a low-voiced bird (voiced by Jerry Nelson), as they sing about words that begin with the two different G sounds. Then a delivery man shows up (performed by Richard Hunt) with a delivery of a large G, and he dances along to the song with the others. At the end of the song, the bird pecks at the G.


  • While not directly named in the segment, the original script for the song identifies the singers as George and Glenda Sue.[1]
  • As both skits were filmed for season nine, all three Anything Muppets from this song also appear in the first part of a three-part sketch where Grover attempts to demonstrate the number 2.
