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.
Though only parents and maybe a handful of Underwoodian kids watching would understand the parody, Sesame Street pretty much nailed House of Cards in a skit about the Three Little Pigs. Frank Underwolf stars and recreates the same feel of the political drama—soliloquies, southern accent, plotting, etc.—only with…
What if instead of being haunted by the fictional superhero Birdman, an actor was being stalked by his alter ego, Big Bird? That's the premise of this absolutely perfect spoof from Sesame Street, "Big Birdman," featuring Caroll Spinney.
What does Cookie Monster think about when his mind is left to wander? Well, mostly, he thinks about food, and it's pretty hysterical watching the cookie-fiending Muppet wander through the Guggenheim Museum, the Metropolitan Museum, and the Museum of Modern Art offering his profound culinary thoughts.
"Say there was ... a golden ring. And you really, really wanted this golden ring. It was like your precious."
Here's a weird little corner of the internet for you to devour. YouTube user Crysknife007 is well-known for hours-long sci-fi marathons of idling starship engines or the silent ambience of Rick Deckard's apartment. But this time, we get our favorite numbers-addicted Muppet counting Pi up to 10,000 decimal places.
Most of the movies I used to watch as a kid have actually held up well over time (maybe I just had boss taste as a child, but my favorite movies were Pee Wee's Big Adventure and The Muppet Movie, and both remain amazing). One I remember loving when I was little that I didn't think would stand the test of time was …
