"Honk Around the Clock" is a Sesame Street song performed, in voice-over, by Christopher Cerf, as the Honkers (including Mr. Honker and Henrietta) honk their noses while dancing around a large clock. At the end, the Honkers dance off honking as the clock moves along with them, followed by a loud crash.

The song's title is based on "Rock Around the Clock" by Bill Haley & his Comets. The music however resembles "Runaround Sue" by Dion & the Belmonts.

The song was performed by the Count and the Honkers in the Sesame Street Live show, Around the World.


  • On the "Count It Higher: Great Music Videos from Sesame Street" VHS, the video has MTV-style captions that refer to the album "Play Through the Nose", on the "Oogah Records" label; the lyrics were released on a songbook in the original release of the video.
