Get Up and Dance is a Sesame Street direct-to-video special released on January 28, 1997.

Big Bird decides to hold a birthday party for Radar in the dance studio around the corner. More kids than Sesame Street Muppets are seen in the video as the plot moves along by the kids suggesting a dance, Celina explaining how to do it, and the song or video plays.

The DVD version includes a CD sampler of "Happy Tappin' with Elmo", "Doin' the Pigeon" and "Lambaba" from the album Platinum All-Time Favorites.




  • Originally, a sequence of Elmo (on a black background) dancing to ragtime music was seen at the end of the video, which would be replaced by "Elmo's Rap Alphabet," in later releases.
