Anyone who been a babysitter knows that having a puppet on hand (ha!) is the best way to entertain any child. It’s also a win when the kid is young enough to believe that that piece of felt and fur is indeed an actual person. These classic Sesame Street moments are chockfull of adorable innocence and could melt any cold heart.
Here are the 7 cutest classic Sesame Street moments:
1. Kermit teaches Joey body parts
2. Kermit and Joey sing their ABCs
3. Grover and Chris talk about love
4. Grover and Jesse discuss what marriage is
5. Grover and John John count to 1
6. Bert, Sherlock and John John count to 10
7. Bert loses his paperclips
We’ve all grown up watching this cuddly bunch. Sesame Street has taught us how to spell, how to share and how to be a good friend. But now the gang is teaching us what a billion looks like. After reaching 1 billion views on YouTube, SesameStreet released this video of The Count singing the catchy tune, ”You”s in YouTube.”
Last month, Sesame Street put out a call to get fans to help them reach one billion views on their channel. Fans worldwide came to the rescue and helped them hit their target!
According to USA Today, this is the first non-profit organization and children’s media company to reach this milestone. Since launching their YouTube channel more than four years ago, they average almost a million hits a day. Amazing!
I’ve always wondered what it would be like for aliens to discover Earth’s many contraptions. From televisions to hair dryers, it would definitely be interesting to see how aliens would react.
Now imagine how they would behave if they turned the radio on to discover the wicked dubstep tunes of Skrillex playing.
Check out 1:50 to find out. The results are amazing.
The Ambercrombie models were nice to look at, Fun.’s cover was, well, fun, and Jimmy Fallon and the Roots did a great job backing up the Carly Rae Jepsen with toy instruments. Though, I think it’s safe to say, you know you’ve made it when Sesame Street does a cover of your song.
Cookie Monster gets in on the “Call Me Maybe” action by putting a very Sesame Street twist on the summer hit. The beloved monster took a break from his vegetables, going back to his cookie roots, and asks his co-workers to “share it, maybe.” I think Cookie Monster channeled my soul when he sang this verse:
“You cookie showing
Me hunger growing
Get skim milk flowing
Get this snack going, baby”
That is exactly how I feel when I see cookies baking in the oven. So now, I just may or may not sing this song every time one of my roommates bakes some. I also may or may not have my very own Cookie Monster puppet to sing at them with.
Don’t judge me. I think the more pathetic I look, the more likely my roommates will take pity on me and give me a cookie. It’s not my fault Cookie Monster taught me how delicious cookies as a kid before he went the vegetable route.
Watch the video below:
The show producers issued a statement saying, “They were created to teach preschoolers that people can be good friends with those who are very different from themselves.”
“Even though they are identified as male characters and possess many human traits and characteristics … they remain puppets, and do not have a sexual orientation.”
This controversy became a hot topic after an online petition was started to marry the two characters. However the show creators insist that will not happen.
Bert and Ernie are straight? Well this video says otherwise. Ernie just seems to concerned about Bert’s exercising.
Last year the show featured a familiar scantily clad Lady Gaga and this year we will see Miss Katy Perry, also scantily clad. Surprised?. Perhaps the singer will tone down her sex appeal because of the controversy that her world famous cleavage caused on a Sesame Street segment (that never aired) and because she is a married woman now. Although it is doubtful that her husband, comedian Russell Brand, would stick his nose up at one of those cotton candy costumes (that are probably edible).
Due to the success of her album, “Teenage Dream,” and that damn catchy title track that I can’t seem to get out of my head, it seems that Perry is the perfect choice to perform at the Grammy’s. The singer has also been nominated in four categories.
It should be a good night for Perry and all of her fans, including the Sesame Street producers, we know you wanted her to wear that costume.
The Grammy’s will air on February 13.
TMZ.com reports that Katy Perry’s episode of Sesame Street, which was set to air in January, has been removed from their lineup due to her so-called exposed breasts. In the episode she sings a parody of her song “Hot and Cold” while she is dressed in a Tinkerbell-esque green dress showing minimal cleavage.
The track was leaked on Youtube and attained nearly a million views. After seeing the clip many parents began sending complaints to Sesame Street for the material. They believe it is inappropriate for their young children.
Honestly. the clip is tame. There are too hypothetical reasons why the clip was really yanked from Sesame Street.
1. The parents became aroused by Katy Perry and are afraid that their sexual oppression will be awakened.
2. Elmo is really the salacious one. He does have that Freudian phallic appearance.
Poor Katy Perry, she started out as a Christian singer under the guise, Katy Hudson. Clearly she has changed her image but deep down she is still a good Christian girl. Like Jessica Simpson, Katy can’t help that her breasts are too large for kid’s programming.
This was an obvious screw up on part of the Sesame Street producers. It seems odd that they should hire Katy Perry to make a cameo appearance on their show when she sings of nothing but sex. They should probably further research their pop stars before putting them on mainstream kids television. They will probably pick Lady Gaga next after seeing her recent sexy cover shoot for Tatler Russia magazine.
