In January 2006, this show was dubbed and performed in The Netherlands for Sesamstraat's 30th anniversary. Iedereen maakt muziek in Sesamstraat was the second Sesamstraat Live show (following Als ik later groot ben in 2001).

A walkaround puppet of Pino made a couple of introductions before the show and after intermission, and Honk, Bang, Whistle and Crash was cut from the show and replaced by The Monster Club House. This live show introduced the Monster Club House and Elmo's World to a Dutch audience, the latter of which would become a recurring segment on Sesamstraat.

Musical star Antje Monteiro and TV show host Irene Moors shared the role of Jenny the music teacher.

In Mexico, Abelardo Montoya has appeared in Big Bird's place.[6]
