"Mad Goat Song" is an animated Sesame Street song in which a goat undergoes repeated annoyances. A dog pulls the goat's whiskers, and then a cat sets off a loud firecracker. A duck makes faces at the goat, and finally a pig refuses to share his ice cream with the goat.

The lesson of the song, as specified in the chorus, is that anger can sometimes be a healthy outlet, and when justified, "it ain't bad to get mad."

Derek Lamb directed and designed the short, recycling several character designs from his 1964 short I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly, in addition to composing the song and supplying character vocals. John Canemaker animated the spot.
