Instead of teaching young children how to brush their teeth with the help of snazzy beats and celebrity pals, Elmo’s popular “Brushy Brush” tune has gotten a lyrical update to reflect the new realities of the coronavirus pandemic.

Elmo dropped a COVID-19 remix of “Washy Wash” with some of Sesame Street’s other beloved Muppets in a series of animated music videos to teach young children how to wash their hands properly.

These timely content changes are all part of the Caring for Each Other initiative launched by Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit educational organization behind Sesame Street, in partnership with the Ad Council.
