Wubba Wubba Wubba is the chorus of the Sesame Street song "Monster in the Mirror" written by Christopher Cerf and Norman Stiles in 1989. In 1991, the song was revamped to a longer version featuring various celebrities singing along with Grover, including Ray Charles, Robin Williams, Jeff Goldblum, Geena Davis, Julia Roberts, Bo Derek, Tracey Ullman, Whoopi Goldberg and Siskel and Ebert, as well as a cameo appearance by The Simpsons.

In September 2002, a picture book by the same name was read by First Lady Laura Bush, to Big Bird, Elmo, and a group of kids on Sesame Street.

It was also the catchphrase of MTV veejay Downtown Julie Brown, alleged to have come from accidentally reading the MTV T-shirt of a camera crewmember who was holding the cue cards while on live TV.[1]
