"Telephone Rock" is a Sesame Street song performed by Little Jerry and the Monotones in season 6.

Little Jerry gets into a telephone booth, where he (joined by the Monotones) starts singing to the operator. They end up harassing the operator until she shows up with a cop, who arrest them (by shutting the telephone booth door and carrying it away).


  • The police officer that arrests the band at the end of the song was performed by Martin P. Robinson at the end of the Rock & Roll! video. On the Signs! album, he was voiced by Jerry Nelson.
  • Jerry Nelson voices Big Jeffy in this song.
