Wet or Dry is a Sesame Street song from the early 1990s.

Little Chrissy responds to the question of what makes him happy: he likes having fun "no matter if he's wet or dry", and demonstrates by playing his piano on both a stage and underwater (surrounded by fish). "Wet" and "dry" are further demonstrated with several kids, Mr. Handford, and Maria getting buckets of water dumped on them.

Both the song and video spoof Michael Jackson's 1991 hit "Black or White."


  • The segment concludes with Little Chrissy, now in a director role saying, "Cut! Perfect!" The final two airings of the segment (3559 and 3693) changed the music track to the song, with Chrissy's line dubbed over, saying "Perfect!" louder and enthusiastically, and easier to hear over the applause.
  • International airings of the song omit the clips of Mr. Handford and Maria.
