Sesame Street Fever is a concept album made by the cast of Sesame Street in 1978. It follows the characters as a love of disco sweeps Sesame Street.

The album heavily parodies Saturday Night Fever, and the cover features Grover where John Travolta should be, and Ernie, Bert, and Cookie Monster in the place of the Bee Gees.

Bee Gee Robin Gibb also appears on the album, and according to the LP's liner notes, "appears courtesy of his children - Melissa and Spencer Gibb".

The recording was released in the LP, cassette, and eight-track audio formats; it has never been commercially released on compact disc but is available to download on amazon, iTunes and file sharing sites. Singles of "Sesame Street Fever"/"Trash" and "Doin' the Pigeon"/"Rubber Duckie" were released as promotional items. (The CD was released in Japan in 1991. The product number is SRCS-5595.)
