"All Together Now" is a skiffle-styled popular tune written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney for the sondtrack album for the Beatles' 1968 film and album Yellow Submarine. The song was originally recorded and mixed in 1967 in less than nine hours and with only six takes.
It was performed by Anything Muppets in an insert seen several times during the first season of Sesame Street. Only the first two verses of the song ("1-2-3-4" and "A-B-C-D") were included. The insert begins with the parents attempting to sing "We Belong Together," while the daughter interrupts with "All Together Now."
"All Together Now" was sung by the Muppets as the finale for the Kermit Unpigged album when Kermit the Frog finally manages to get his friends together to sing a song. Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie, Gonzo, Robin, Clifford, Rizzo, Bunsen, Beaker, Floyd Pepper, and Animal performed the vocals. In this version, Robin sings the line "Do I have to go to bed?" in place of "Can I take my friend to bed?"
