Watch This Video We Made: Elmo Has a Question For YOU!

I have a question for you: Did you watch the original Elmo’s World? The fifteen-minute segment that aired at the end of Sesame Street for many years from the 1990s to the 2010s? I bet you did. I sure did. Even as an ostensible grown-up, I always enjoyed seeing what Elmo was thinking about on any given day.

Elmo’s World always stuck to a pretty predictable formula. Whatever the topic is, you know you’re going to see Elmo ask a baby, you’re going to see Mr. Noodle screw up a simple task, and you’re going to hear a song sung to the tune of “Jingle Bells.”

Then there was the counting part. In just about every episode, our furry red host would say, “And now, Elmo has a question for YOU!” And then he would ask you to count how many pickles can fit in an astronaut’s helmet, or how many times a lion can jump on a trampoline, or something like that.

At a certain point I noticed something: There were several variations on the “question for you” line. Sometimes he would sing it, sometimes he would dance while he said it, sometimes he would point at you. And a while back, I had this exceptionally crazy idea to compile as many of those variations as I could get my hands on into one video.

Why did I do it? I have no idea. But it’s too late now. It’s already done. And here it is, for your viewing pleasure:
