What Time Is It On Sesame Street? is a concept album that talks about different times of the day, and what people do at those times. It was released with a gatefold sleeve, the inside of which consisted of a collage of photographs showing people doing all kinds of activities, with a little picture of a clock inside each photo, showing what time it would be. The album also included an insert of a cardboard clock with movable plastic hands. The record also had an inner sleeve with the words, "What time is it?", and pictures of 12 clocks, showing 1:00 through 12:00. The album was written, composed and produced entirely by Jeff Moss.

  • While most of these songs are new, two classic songs from The Sesame Street Book & Record also appear, although they are slightly different. "The People in Your Neighborhood" is a new version, featuring Bob talking to a grocer and a shoemaker. "Rubber Duckie" is the original recording, but there is an added introduction by Bert, wondering where Ernie is, and then noticing that it's 6:00, and that there's only one place Ernie could be at that time.
  • Despite the fact that Prairie Dawn appears on the album cover, another girl named Marylou appears on the album itself, with no appearance from Prairie Dawn whatsoever. Like Prairie Dawn, Marylou is voiced by Fran Brill.
