Sesame Street It's Hip to Be a Square(02:01)
A red square sings "It's Hip to Be a Square."

"It's Hip to Be a Square" is an animated song sketch first seen on Sesame Street in 1989, spoofing "Hip to Be Square" by Huey Lewis and the News.

Animated by Candy Kugel and Vincent Cafferelli at Buzzco Associates, Inc., the short features a band of colored squares with stick-figure limbs. The lead singer (voiced by Paul Jacobs) sings about his differences from other shapes, but they still get along. Cut-outs and direct cel-drawings were utilized.

In the Sesame Street Live stage show Big Bird & the ABCs, Bert performs the song with Cookie Monster, Ernie, and Guy Smiley, all wearing sunglasses.
