Singing is the 11th episode of Elmo's World.
What is Elmo Thinking about Today?
Elmo opens his (singing) door to a chorus of kids singing the Elmo's World Theme Song. The following film includes kids singing "Sing," and "The Alphabet Song," and a mother singing to a baby "Brahms' Lullaby."
Mr. NoodleDorothy wants to know how you sing. Mr. Noodle's brother Mr. Noodle cackles like a rooster, moos like a cow, gargles, and quacks like a duck before he lip-syncs to "La donna è mobile" from a radio player.
Dorothy Wants to Ask Someone Else
Three kids sing "Row, Row, Row Your Boat" as a round.
Elmo Has a Question for You
Elmo counts four pigs in a barbershop quartet singing "Sweet Adeline."
Elmo wants to know what sings and what doesn't. Dogs do. Pineapples don't, while Elmo can sing with one. Clocks don't, unless it's a cuckoo clock. Bathtubs don't, but Ernie can sing in his bathtub. Ernie and Rubber Duckie appear to sing a verse of "Rubber Duckie." The original album recording with Jim Henson as Ernie is used here. After the quiz, the pigs in a barbershop quartet resumed singing.
Elmo's friend Samantha learns how to participate in a playground-style hand-clapping/singing game.
The Singing Channel features the Lecture Lady singing "The Itsy Bitsy Spider." Stay tuned for Singing in the Rain.
Elmo sings to opera singer Diva D'Abruzzo who illustrates that she can sing high, low, fast and slow. They sing in an opera style.
Tickle Me Land
Dorothy imagines Elmo as The Three Elmos, Elvis Presley and a rapper.
Elmo's Home Video
Big Bird sings a lullaby to get Radar to go to sleep. Elmo turns around to the camera, with his purple eyelids, and yawns. In fact, Elmo sleeps on the TV when he is watching his video!
The TV scene was cut.
- This is the first episode from Season 2.
- This is the first episode of Mr. Noodle's brother Mr. Noodle.
- This is also the first episode to use the completely updated design of Elmo's house, with more squiggles and saturation than in the previous season. The sound effects are still exactly the same as the previous season.
- The original boing sound effect in played on an F when Elmo opens his newly designed door in 2 scenes. Once in the Guess What Elmo's Thinking About Today segment, and once in the interview scene. It is played in an E flat after the descending slide sound effect after the interview end and the door closes. The original ascending and descending slide effects is still the same.
