Sesame Street and The Wiggles Debut New Rendition of the Iconic Classic “Fruit Salad”



Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit organisation behind Sesame Street, and The Wiggles are debuting a reimagining of The Wiggles iconic song “Fruit Salad” today exclusively on YouTube. Starring The Wiggles—Anthony Field, Lachlan Gillespie, Simon Pryce, and Emma Watkins—and Sesame Street’s Cookie Monster, Abby Cadabby, and Elmo, this fun music video features fruit being virtually passed and dropped between screens, adding playful and colourful elements. 


“’Fruit Salad’ is one of our most popular songs ever. For many, it is the first song that comes to mind when they think of The Wiggles,” says Anthony Field, Blue Wiggle and founding member of The Wiggles. “We are so excited to share a new and updated take on this classic that includes the vibe and feel that only Sesame Street can provide.”

Both brands recently celebrated milestones, with Sesame Street marking its historic 50th season in Australia last year and The Wiggles kicking off their 2021 celebration of 30 years of children’s entertainment. The two beloved children’s brands joined forces last month for an updated version of the Sesame Street song “ABCs of Moving You.” Cookie Monster, Elmo, Abby Cadabby and their friends The Wiggles danced and sang through the letters of the alphabet.
