"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.
