Near the end of Muppet Guys Talking, puppeteer Dave Goelz is asked a question about where he’s found the nobility in his life’s work. “[In] folly,” he answers. “Human folly. Celebrating the degree to which we’re all lost.” That’s just one instance of how this documentary about the world’s favorite puppets gets…
History, dessert, non-annoying children, and one delightful monster. Yes, this video of Cookie Monster discussing treats from different decades is over six minutes long—but it’s very cute, and no matter how often you see it, the sight of Cookie Monster in gobble mode never gets old. (The kids do a great imitation,…
I can’t stand Elmo, just can’t deal with this damn Muppet anymore. He’s cute, he’s shrill, and he has made Sesame Street worse.
Monsters probably outnumber everyone else on Twitter at this point, Sesame Street.
Unfortunately, it isn’t likely to be a sequel to Follow That Bird.
Apple partnered up with Sesame Street a while back to demonstrate it’s ‘Hey, Siri’ feature, as the AI assists Cookie Monster in baking cookies. They just released a ‘behind the scenes’ video that’s really cute.
If it didn’t mean we’d miss amazing films like Being John Malkovich, Adaptation and Her, Spike Jonze could have a great career in late night. Earlier this week, the director helmed directed a surreal new opening to The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, which you should watch here.
These are the work of Jesse Bray, whose portraits of famous pop culture characters have just enough geometry to them to be interesting but aren’t completely abstracted.
Last year, a deal was announced that brought the public broadcasting legend Sesame Street to the premium cable network HBO. And now, thanks to The New York Times, we know a bunch of details about the revamped show. How you feel is going to depend a lot on how you feel about change. And yuppies.
Sesame Street is moving to HBO for the next few seasons starting in January and the first trailer is now out. And it’s basically delightful.
Things I love: Pegafish, Moo-dusa, “Release the cracker!” Things that are clear improvements over the 2010 version of this film: Cookie Monster instead of Sam Worthington. Plus, this one comes with a lesson on focus and memory. Everything here is better than the 2010 film.
HBO and Sesame Street just announced a surprise deal that will put America’s most famous children’s TV program on the same network as Game of Thrones. PBS, the non-profit channel that has aired Sesame Street since it debuted in 1969, will still be allowed to air the program nine months after its initial run.
Following a tweet showing a shadow that looked a bit like him on Mars, Big Bird has denied that he’s ever been to Mars. But no one was suggesting that he had. Methinks the bird doth protest too much.
In a lesson on focus — which Cookie pretty clearly lacks — Sesame Street takes on the climax of The Avengers as only they can. They also make a pretty good case for the Hulk being the most powerful of the Avengers, as Cookie destroys both Cap’s Shield and the Mighty Corn’s hammer.
Here’s another fun Sesame Street parody, this time they poke fun of The Avengers by pretending their a group of vegetable superheroes. I just love how Cookie Monster is The Hulk, I mean, it makes perfect sense.
There's three things you need to know about about Sesame Street's amazing, in-joke-packed Game of Thrones parody, in which Grover Bluejoy helps determine the new king of Chesteros.
Who knew that Game of Thrones could be summed up with a simple game of musical chairs? Sesame Street did that's who. Following up their on point parody of House of Cards, the muppets are back to teach kids about Game of Thrones. Well, minus the violence and sex and evil human plotting.
It's actually pretty surprising that Cookie Monster waits as long as he does to get to the "Eat a cookie" portion of his advice. Which, I'll admit, is the kind of life-coaching I can get behind.
Caroll Spinney, the 80-year-old man behind Sesame Street's Big Bird and Oscar, is finally getting his moment in the limelight with the documentary I Am Big Bird. The film is set to hit theaters on May 6th and what the fuck? What is happening to my face? Water. Water emerging from my eyes in an unstoppable waterfall of…
