Jimmy Fallon, the Roots and Sesame Street sing “Sesame Street”

Need to know how to get to Sesame Street? These guys can help you out! 

If Thursday’s got you down, this will get you smiling. I dare you to not sing along

Oh man, this is all kinds of awesome.

EW exclusive: Mom-to-be Kristen Bell is coming to Sesame Street!

A bummer of an ending to a real bummer of a story.

Last year, Elmo and Cookie Monster stopped by EW’s offices to perform their versions of some popular TV shows. This year, Elmo was too busy working on Elmo: The Musical — but Grover and Cookie Monster (a.k.a. the Blue Brothers) had enough wiggle room in their schedules to come around and sing a few musical numbers of their own, parodying the likes of The Hunger Games, The Avengers, Doctor Who, and even The Newsroom. Watch the video here.

Elmo and Cookie Monster made the trip from Sesame Street to the EW offices to tell us about their new season (which starts next Monday), and we couldn’t have been more excited had it been Johnny Depp sword-fighting with a time-traveling Theodore Roosevelt. In honor of their upcoming slate of guest stars, the two of them took us through their interpretations of some of TV’s biggest shows — including The Big Bang Theory, CSI: Miami, and The Office (which, coincidentally, name-checked Sesame Street in its premiere last night) – and we have to say, Cookie Monster would actually make a pretty good replacement for Michael Scott.

Our interview with Sutton Foster and Elmo is ridiculous and amazing


When did you guys first meet?
Elmo: A long time ago. We go way back.
Sutton Foster: We go way, way back.
Elmo: Elmo’s been knowing Miss Sutton for a long, long time. She’s so special.
SF: Well, Elmo, you’re very special, too.
Elmo: No, you are. We have a wonderful love fest going. [Laughs] Elmo hopes your boyfriend is okay with that.
SF: Boy, my boyfriend’s okay with that. Because he loves you, too.

But wait, there’s more!


Elmo and Cookie Monster helped Orlando-bound passengers board their Delta flight today at the Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport at an event for the new Elmo’s Travel Songs and Games DVD available tomorrow from Sesame Workshop and Warner Home Video!

Seeing these guys at the airport would be the only thing that could make flying a non-horrible experience.
