Here is Your Life is a reunion show hosted by Guy Smiley on Sesame Street. In a parody of This Is Your Life, Guy surprises each episode's subject (usually a plant, food item, or other inanimate object) and presents its life story. Guy asks the subjects to recognize off-camera voices, culminating in touching reunions with those who figured in the subjects' early lives, such as Sneaker's long-lost matching shoe.

Later segments were retitled "The New Here is Your Life," with Sonny Friendly taking over the role of host.

The "Here is Your Life" theme was composed by Joe Raposo.
