How to Watch

Watch The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on NBC weeknights at 11:35/10:35c and next day on Peacock

The same year Fallon became the Host of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, he appeared in the 2009 revival of the classic children's show The Electric Company. In the "Lights, Camera, Beetles!" episode, the letters U and H are taught to the series' young viewers. And what better way to showcase the power of H than with a punk-tinged track?

The music video for the song "Pocket Full of 'H's" featured Fallon in a leather jacket, performing for a club of 'H's as he sang about how he "has a pocket full of H's that he's not afraid to use." In the short clip, Fallon did his best Joey Ramone impression as he jumped around the stage while playing guitar, listing how he can change words like "bat" to "bath" and "camp" to "champ" simply by using the letter H.

If you were neither a kid nor a parent back in 2009, you might've missed Fallon's kids bop. But the surprisingly catchy tune has at least one superstar fan: Billie Eilish.

Billie Eilish knew Jimmy Fallon from The Electric Company

When the "Birds of a Feather" singer appeared on The Tonight Show back in September 2019, she revealed to Fallon that she first knew him not from his six years on Saturday Night Live, but from his appearance on The Electric Company.

"When I was growing up... I used to watch a show called The Electric Company, and there was a guy on it, and he had eyeliner, and he was singing about 'H's because it was a little kids' show," Eilish told Fallon.

"But it was you," she continued, "and then I remember seeing you on TV, and I was like, 'That's the guy from the commercial with the 'H's!" Fallon went on to sing a brief snippet of the song.

"But no one saw that in my whole lifetime! I made movies, I was on Saturday Night Live for years. You didn't know me from Saturday Night Live?" he asked, astonished.

"No. I was so excited to meet you because of The Electric Company," Eilish responded.

"That's hilarious. They all told me that you got a story about Saturday Night Live," said Fallon. "Oh, my gosh. I can't believe you saw that. No one saw that."

Well, at least one Grammy and Oscar winner with an 'H' in her name did, and it sounds like it made quite the impression.
