Sesame Street Fever is a disco-themed album which features The Muppets from Sesame Street singing disco interpretations of familiar Sesame Street hits (plus two new numbers, the title track "Sesame Street Fever" and "Trash"). The album's title and cover is a parody of Saturday Night Fever, the 1977 movie starring John Travolta and with a soundtrack dominated by the music of the Bee Gees, which become one of the era's biggest sellers. Robin Gibb from the Bee Gees appears as a guest vocalist on both new songs, and can also be heard in conversation with Cookie Monster during the introduction to "C is for Cookie". Every track on this album was written by Joe Raposo, except for "Rubber Duckie", which was written by Jeff Moss. In keeping with the disco-era theme, each track features an extended instrumental introduction, and there are relatively few tracks (both common features on albums of this period). The album reached #75 on Billboard's Top LP's and Tapes chart, and was certified Gold by the RIAA.
The record's executive producer was Arthur Shimkin. Larry Levan was commissioned to do remixes of "C is for Cookie", but they remained unreleased until 2003, when Ninja Tune released the 12-inch single Solid Steel Presents Sesame Street.
