Awesome Sesame Street

Cookie Monster Gone Mad

Cookie Monster Gone Mad

After Adam at North of the Border made his last blue-haired monster, many of us suggested that he use the leftover fur to make Cookie Monster. He obliged and sculpted Sesame Street’s #1 carb addict chomping on Shrek’s Gingerbread Man and his family. He didn’t bother using the fur because it was a pain in the ass.

I Can Only Count to Four

I Can Only Count to Four

When we watched Sesame Street, The Count helped us learn our numbers. But in Psychostick’s alternative-universe kids’ show, Kermit is responsible for the math lessons, and apparently he’s not very good at it. Let the numbers hit the floor.

Fat Cat Sat Hat

Fat Cat Sat Hat

Sesame Street has been a kids’ institution since 1969. This clip of a song called Fat Cat comes from a 1973 episode and reminds us just how brilliant the show can be with its rhythms and rhymes. Jim Henson played both the orange-haired Bip Bippadotta and the lavender singer, while Frank Oz was the blue guy, and Jerry Nelson was green.

Elmo in Dune

Elmo in Dune

Despite its inconclusive final act, we enjoyed Denis Villeneuve’s Dune. But what if Timothée Chalomet were replaced with another star? We’re talking about none other than Sesame Street’s Elmo. YouTube channel Sesame Swap subjected the inquisitive red muppet to the Bene Gesserit and the deadly Gom Jabbar.

Easy Listening Monster Band

Start Wearing Purple: Muppet Edition

Start Wearing Purple: Muppet Edition

Sesame Street’s The Count sings along with NY polka-punk band Gogol Bordello’s track Start Wearing Purple, a song about growing old and going senile, which seems rather ironic for a vampire who is likely immortal. At least he’s already the right color.

Original Mah-Na, Mah-Na

Original Mah-Na, Mah-Na

The Museum of Classic Chicago Television aka FuzzyMemories.TV dusted off this classic from the wonderful world of Jim Henson. This is the original 1969 versio of Mah-Na, Mah-Na, a skit that would later gain fame on The Muppet Show. The tune was originally created for a crazy Italian mondo flick, Sweden Heaven and Hell.

Bombas and Sesame Street teamed up for a limited-edition, 7-pair sock collection for adults to celebrate everyone’s fave PBS Muppets. With every pair sold, a pair is donated for homeless families. Here’s hoping that Oscar the Grouch gets some.

Big Bird Takes a Lie Detector Test

Big Bird Takes a Lie Detector Test

One of Vanity Fair’s interview gimmicks is to hook up a subject to a lie detector while answering questions. In this episode, Sesame Street’s 8-foot-tall yellow bird does his best to tell the truth as he’s questioned by Barry the technician, and some of his Muppet pals.

SNL: Grouch

Mashup master Mylo the Cat diced up footage from the 1985 Sesame Street flick Follow That Bird to create a muppet version of the video for Beastie Boys’ 1994 classic Sabotage. The only thing missing are the cheesy ’70s mustaches.

Sesame Street x HBO

Sesame Street x HBO

Sesame Street asks us to be more respectful of one another with a duo of amusing parodies of HBO dramas, featuring the actual stars and sets from the shows. While the Game of Thrones one has gone viral, we think the Westworld one is even better in our opinion.

How Sesame Street’s Muppets Work

How Sesame Street’s Muppets Work

WIRED takes us behind the scenes with the cast of Sesame Street for a look at how the performers operate each of their Muppets, along with a few other cool tidbits about the art of puppetry. Their arms must get so tired over their heads like that all the time.

Adjust the bass, and let the Alpine blast with another well executed lip-sync video from Mylo the Cat. This time, the cast of Sesame Street celebrates the warm weather with a little DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince, and one of our favorite sunny day jams.

Rammstein vs. Cookie Monster

Rammstein vs. Cookie Monster

Yes, we know this clip dates back to 2009, but since we’ve never seen it, we figured maybe you hadn’t either. A hilarious use of Cookie Monster’s voice from a kids’ telephone toy to help provide vocals for a Rammstein track. Cookieeeeeeeee!

HBO’s Sesame Street

HBO’s Sesame Street

It was recently announced that Sesame Street would be airing episodes on HBO. But if the guys at Barely Productions are to be believed (and they aren’t), the gang will be getting decidedly more adult, per HBO standards.

Aveggies: Age of Bon Bon

Aveggies: Age of Bon Bon

Sesame Street parodies this summer’s blockbuster Avengers: Age of Ultron, replacing our protagonists with a bunch of nutritionally-conscious heroes. Except for Cookie Monster. And Zuchin-eye is as useless as you’d expect.

Game of Chairs

Game of Chairs

Sesame Street takes on another very adult TV series and makes it family friendly. This time, they mock Game of Thrones, with the denizens of Jesteros playing musical chairs to earn their place on the throne. That golf club throne looks familiar.
