BeforeWeEat
Written by Larry Gold
First Episode 1594

"What to Do Before We Eat" is a Sesame Street song, combining live-action and animation. The off-camera vocalists, with a gospel inflection, sing about washing hands before you eat, with footage of a boy going from dinner table to sink, while animation is used to show his imagination of his soap as a watercraft. Of course we don't wash our feet first, since we don't eat with our feet.

The segment was directed and animated by Paul Fierlinger.
