Mitzy the Spider in the Sesame Street Live Show Let's Dance

"The Itsy Bitsy Spider", also known as "the Eensy Weensy Spider" is a popular nursery rhyme that describes the adventures of a spider as it ascends, descends and reascends the downspout or "waterspout" of a gutter system (or, alternatively, the spout of a teapot). It is usually accompanied by a sequence of gestures that mimic the words of the song. The most commonly referenced first published version was in 1962.



  • Oscar performs the song in When Elmo Grows Up, a revised version of the 1993 Sesame Street Live tour.


  • Abby Cadabby lists the song as her favorite, in her profile on the (now defunct) social network TotSpot.
