Time to Learn Your ABC's

Sesame Street had the best variety of legendary celebrities singing or reciting the alphabet. Some are shown here along with a variety of other classic videos, with a few foreign ones thrown in. Let's all learn the ABC's.

Blackalicious' Alphabet Aerobics w/ Cut Chemist off A to G EP. (not official video - but very cool)


3 Stooges - Swingin the Alphabet


fun parody to the 3 Stooges video from above


James Earl Jones recites the alphabet
(so this is what it would sound like if Darth Vader recited the alphabet)


late baseball legend, Jackie Robinson reciting the alphabet


Billy Joel sings the alphabet


ASL Sign Language Alphabet


PETULA CLARK AND GUY MITCHELL - The Alphabet Song (1960)


Lou Rawl sings the alphabet


Manhattan Transfer sings the alphabet


The Pointer Sisters sing a catchy version of the Alphabet song


Madrigal Alphabet (for all you Renaissance fans)


Animal Alphabet (1950)


Patrick Stewart (as Captain Picard) Alphabet - WOW


They Might Be Giants - Alphabet Of Nations (where is West Xylophone??...LOL)


Patti LaBelle Singing The Alphabet Gospel Style


Take 6 sing the Alphabet (acappella group-style)


Richard Pryor's alphabet (this is clean)


Elmo's Alphabet Rap


Amanda Lear - Alphabet (the 1977 disco sleaze version - done in a French accent)


ABC's for kids on LSD (volume is low, so turn it up)


Sesame Street - Roosevelt Franklin's Alphabet
Muppet bit from 1969, featuring the voices of Matt Robinson and Loretta Long (the original Gordon and Susan).


for the Portuguese translation of the above video, check this one:


Muslim Kid School will teach you the Arabic Alphabet


Rev. Lanning sings the Hebrew Alphabet


This one is honorable mention since they only sing the first three letters of the English Alphabet
Jackson 5 - ABC


One more honorable mention since this video only sings about the vowels in the English alphabet ... plus, this was such a fun 80's song, so I just wanted an excuse to post this music video.
EBN-OZN - "Aeiou sometimes y"
