NTV is a Sesame Street MTV parody channel all about the letter "N", with Nora Nicks as the host. The channel featured Nick Normal and the Nickmatics singing "The Letter N", which was described to be their latest hit song.

In the group's performance of "The Letter N", Nick Normal sings about his Friday afternoon, and the events that happened (featuring black and white flashbacks), which all involve words beginning with "N": Nothing, Never, and No, eventually leading to a giant letter "N" appearing at the end of the video.


  • The song features MTV-style captions that refer to "N Records" at the beginning of the music video.
  • The song was also used in a 1991 episode, where Maria and Big Bird were watching NTV in the Fix-It Shop.
  • The ending for the video is similar to the video for The Beetles' Thinking of U, since both videos have giant letters rising down from the ceiling. Only difference is that the "N" was done with a computer effect, while the "U" was shown during the making of the video.
