"With a Little Yelp from My Friends" is a Sesame Street song performed by Moe Cocker and a chorus of dogs. It is a parody of Joe Cockerโ€™s cover version of the Beatles' "With a Little Help from My Friends."

Moe sings about dog-related situations that make him feel down (losing a buried bone, losing a fight to a flea, unable to fetch a stick while his owner is away), but he knows he'll always have his dog friends to help him through rough situations.


  • Airings of the segment from Episode 3540 onward (with the exception of 3602, carrying over the repeat airing of the segment from 3352) included additional dog barking sound effects during the choruses.
