"Zero Song" is an animated Sesame Street song produced by Jane Aaron.

Ivy Austin sings about filling her cup with various foods, but animals come by and eat them all, leaving 0. She finally puts her sneakers in it, thinking no one will eat them, until a goat comes by and gobbles them down (then takes her cup).

After initial airings of the segment, the show received letters from the Dairy Goats Association of America for their portrayal of goats in the segment. They insisted diary goats don't eat sneakers and such an image would harm their reputation. After consulting with a zookeeper, head writer Norman Stiles and Christopher Cerf developed a bit that would air following in the song, in which an enraged goat would express her feelings on the portrayal of goats in the segment. (EKA: Episode 3354) [1]
