"We Are All Earthlings" is a song about the various kinds of creatures that live on Earth. It is sung by a boy and Elmo, with several animals, including Little Bird, Poco Loco, Chicago the Lion, a fish, a goat, a frog, and a toucan.

The song was performed again in 2002 by Jill Scott and some more animals, including Chicago, a zebra, a giraffe, a gnu, a raccoon, a spoonbill, an elephant, and others. (First: Episode 3981) Later that year, the cast performed the song in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

In 2007, a portion of the song was used, as sung by Elmo, in a spot for PBS in preparation for Earth Day. An extended version was later used as a general PSA about talking to kids, including vocals with Big Bird (in the original version of the song, Big Bird can be seen in his nest in a clip).

This song was also sung by the cast of Plaza Sésamo in Episode 828, with the song renamed "Planeta Tierra," which means "Planet Earth."
