Signs for the Hearing are a series of short Sesame Street sketches starring Linda. In the shorts, Linda signs a particular word and her translator becomes the victim of whatever the word is.

The skits were first seen during season 11, where Linda was partnered with David. The shorts were remade a decade later in season 21, with Gordon taking David's place.
