"When I Grow Up" is a Sesame Street song performed in episode 3057.

Mother Goose (portrayed by Judith Ivey) visits the street to get her toaster fixed by Maria. In the Fix-It Shop, Maria asks about the various residents of Nursery Rhyme Land. Mother Goose reveals most of her creations have grown up by now and musically flips through her alumni scrapbook, showing Maria where her characters are now - Little Jack Horner now cooks in a restaurant, Jill of Jack and Jill is a doctor and finally, Little Miss Muffet is a bug-and-spider specialist.

After the song, Maria asks Mother Goose what she wished to be when she got older. "Famous, dear, very famous," Mother Goose replies.
