Charted versions

The most well-known version was recorded by Perry Como, with The Fontane Sisters on March 1, 1949.[1] This recording was released on single records as follows:

Another recording by Jo Stafford and Gordon MacRae was also very popular. The recording was released by Capitol Records. The flip side was "Need You". The recording first appeared on the Billboard charts on March 25, 1949, lasting 13 weeks and peaking at position number 4.[3]

Another recording by the Tony Pastor orchestra (vocal by The Clooney Sisters) also charted. The recording was released by Columbia Records. The recording first appeared on the Billboard charts on May 6, 1949, lasting 2 weeks and peaking at position number 12.[4]

Other recorded versions

In popular culture

In December 1969, the song was performed on Sesame Street by Jack, an Anything Muppet voiced by Jim Henson, to his girlfriend Adrienne, a Muppet voiced by Caroll Spinney. Adrienne is then scared off by Cookie Monster, who demands that Jack return the alphabet blocks he casually threw away during his "wander through the alphabet with you." Cookie eats up the blocks as Jack retrieves them one by one while singing the song again, this time in a harried tone.[13]

The Kidsongs sing the song on their "Baby Animal Songs" video.

The song formed the basis for a Morecambe and Wise sketch, where Eric Morecambe started with "A you're adorable, B you're so beautiful" and then randomly chose letters such as J, Q or Z to fox Ernie Wise.

In a Star Trek: The Next Generation DVD extra, Patrick Stewart, as Jean-Luc Picard, sings the song with slightly altered lyrics.

In a 1974 public service announcement on volunteerism, Johnny Hart's B.C. cartoon characters sing the song with new lyrics featuring the letters A-C-T-I-O-N instead of the whole alphabet.[14]
