Sand Alphabet is a stop-frame animated series of inserts appearing regularly on Sesame Street, one for each letter of the alphabet and with occasional variants. Eliot Noyes, Jr. created the films by manipulating grains of sand against a front or backlighted glass animation stand. Bluegrass music accompanied the letters (featured in both capital and lowercase, read by a male voice and a child's voice respectively) and occasional minimal sand figures or props were featured.

The series began airing in Season 5 and continued to air until Episode 3969 of Season 32, where the letter 'U' was featured..
