Multiple versions have been filmed for the show. The song's earliest appearance was Episode 1197, in a street story where Big Bird spends the night out of his nest to welcome the sun when it first rises. Subsequent performances were produced as standalone inserts, with Big Bird greeting his friends as he walks down Sesame Street.
