The “Best” Elmo Videos

2011 April 6
by distracted daddy

My daughter is no longer allowed to watch Elmo videos on Youtube. When she was allowed, these videos were some of her favourites.

As you’ll notice most Elmo videos involve singing and/or celebrity appearances. To put it bluntly, Elmo is a star-whore. And celebrities know that you haven’t reached true fame until you’ve collaborated with Elmo.

I must warn you, that watching these videos with your toddler is a recipe for tantrums. So watch at your own risk.

Elmo’s Song

Apologies in advance, but Elmo’s Song will burrow itself deeply into your frontal lobes and stay there for weeks.

Katy Perry

A lot has been said about this very controversial Elmo video. All I have to add is that this video is strangely hypnotic.

Natalie Portman

Even OSCAR-winning actresses bow before Elmo’s star power. Before she was a Black Swan, Natalie Portman danced her way to another stunning performance as a Grey Elephant.

Elmo’s Potty Time

Elmo has parents! He wasn’t grown in a furry vat somewhere. Join Elmo and his father as they sing about “pee” “poo” and “doo doo”. It’s the Blues meet the poos.

The Goo Goo Dolls

The muppet-faced lead singer of the Goo Goo Dolls fits right in on Sesame Street as his band parodies one of their “classic” songs.

Adam Sandler

Elmo finally meets his intellectual equal in Adam Sandler. Sandler pulls out his usual schtick, making up a song with made up words. Shabba-dee-doo.

Andrea Bocelli

Elmo forces famous Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli to sing him to sleep. Elmo even tries to duet in his best falsetto.

Now that you’ve seen the best Elmo Youtube videos, it’s time to take a break and deal with your tantrum-y toddler.

    Okay, I have to admit, for someone who has zero tolerance for 99% of the population, I am strangely accepting of Elmo. His song gets us through diaper changes and with any luck he’s going to teach the Minis to go in the potty. We even got that stupid robot Elmo. That one pushes my buttons a bit, but only because his voice reverberates through the entire, entire house.

    Oh Elmo. I hear his voice and his song when I sleep (and I wake). I can recite all the lines from most of ‘Elmo’s World’ episodes. I admit, I do like the celebrity appearances. I think Elmo is more famous than some of them! At least in my eyes.

    Do they EVER grow out of Elmo?

    I love that a daddy is blogging. So I’m following. Yay!

    I suppose Elmo is a necessary evil. If “he” ever teaches my daughter to go potty, I’ll have to be more accepting of his presence in my home.

    Alison, glad you’re enjoying the blog. And definitely agree that Elmo’s star power shines brighter than a lot of his celebrity guests.

I have found that the key to running a website is making sure the visitors you are getting are interested in your subject matter. There is a company that you can get traffic from and they let you try it for free. I managed to get over 300 targetted visitors to day to my website. Check it out here:
