Elmopalooza! is a Sesame Street special that aired on ABC on February 20, 1998.

About the show[edit]

The show is a musical, featuring performances from guests Jon Stewart, David Alan Grier, Rosie O'Donnell, Gloria Estefan, En Vogue, the Fugees, Kenny Loggins, Shawn Colvin, Jimmy Buffett and the Mighty Mighty Bosstones to celebrate Sesame Street's 30th anniversary.

At the beginning of the show, Jon Stewart, the producer Prairie Dawn, and the crew for the show get stuck in a dressing room when the door won't open. The Muppets decide to produce the show themselves, with Elmo hosting.

Meanwhile, Grover, Susan, Gordon, Gina, Bob, and Mr. Handford get lost on the way to Radio City Music Hall, and they end up in Roswell, New Mexico, having picked up penguins and the Yip-yip Martians as hitchhikers.
