One of the more fun recurring bits on the Jimmy Fallon Show is when he and the roots team up with a musician to perform a popular song with just classroom instruments. He just did his latest edition of the bit, and it couldn’t be more appropriate. Fallon and the Roots teamed up with the monsters of Sesame Street to perform their classic TV theme song.

Who knew that the one thing the theme from Sesame Street was missing was a rap interlude…

Here’s a complete list of the characters and their instruments:
Jimmy Fallon - wood block, Casio keyboard
Questlove - kazoo, hand clackers
Frank Knuckles - bongos
Captain Kirk - ukulele
Kamal Gray - xylophone
Mark Kelley - toy clarinet
James Poyser - melodica
Tuba Gooding Jr. - toy saxophone, slide whistle
Black Thought - apple shaker
Elmo - vocals
Grover - backing vocals
Cookie Monster - banana shaker (eaten)
Abby Cadabby - toy guitar
Murray - backing vocals
Zoe - hand cymbals
Big Bird - vocals
Aloysius Snuffleupagus - backing vocals
The Count — counting
