Behind the scenes

"We Are All Monsters" is a song from Sesame Street sung by four monsters about how, although they are all different, they are all still monsters.


  • One of the monsters in this song would later be known as Elmo. Originally, Jerry Nelson performed this monster with a deep, gruff voice, but in 1990 after the monster became a major character, Kevin Clash re-recorded Elmo's lines.
  • On the video Monster Hits!, the group of monsters is called "The Furtones".
