The band's frontman tells through song how tired they are from singing about words that start with Z, and they can only think of so many. As they perform, chroma-keyed objects float against spotlights in the background, including rows of Zs, a zebra, and a zipper. The other musicians gradually become drowsy and, by the song's end, fall asleep as they play. Surprised to see his bandmates tired out, the lead singer decides to "cop some Z's" himself and joins them in slumber.
- The segment was filmed on October 24, 1986, and was directed by Jon Stone.
- The chroma-keyed Z objects were puppeteered by Richard Hunt, Pam Arciero and Martin P. Robinson.
- On the "Count It Higher: Great Music Videos from Sesame Street" VHS, the video has MTV-style captions that refer to "US Snooze Records". The original VHS release included printed lyrics.
