It’s quite possible that Sammy the Snake was my first exposure to the idea of a snake. First broadcast in late 1971 as part of Sesame Street’s third season and presumably broadcast many times thereafter, the catchy song was also included on several Sesame Street albums, including the 1996 two disc-set Sing the Alphabet, which is still available. So I guess it’s a classic.
What, were you expecting me to point out that snakes can’t sing or something?
