"Proud" is a Sesame Street song by Little Jerry and the Monotones about self-pride in accomplishment and abilities. Little Jerry names things he's proud of, while the Monotones sing anecdotes of those of other people's achievements.


  • This is one of the very few times where each member gets their own solo line.
  • Jerry Nelson performs the Pumpkin Monotone in this song.
  • In this song, Little Jerry's dashiki is seen with a tear in the back at the end.
  • An abridged version of the song was practiced by Elmo (with help from Big Jeffy and Little Chrissy) in an early 90's episode, when the former fills in for a sick Little Jerry.

(see above) What is actually posted is “Proud” in English only, with the video extended after the song to include all Muppets being brought lowered out of camera range.)
