Pointer Sisters Yes We Can Can

Excerpt from The Greatest TV Moments: Sesame Street Music A-Z

The Pointer Sisters are a famous R&B group. The group's members originally included Ruth, Anita, Bonnie and June Pointer. The group found its greatest success as a trio after their sister Bonnie left to pursue a solo career.

The group taped several song inserts for Sesame Street in season 6, covering their song "Yes, We Can Can," as well as performing "Hush Little Baby" and "Swingin' Alphabet." They also recorded the vocals for the popular "Pinball Number Count" cartoon.

The group's hit song "Neutron Dance" was covered by The Extremes on The Jim Henson Hour. "Jump (For My Love)" was also covered by guest star Smokey Robinson.

In 1982, they appeared with Jim Henson at the Night of 100 Stars. Other appearances by the group include performances on Cher, American Bandstand and A Capitol Fourth.
