I have to say, I appreciate Sesame Street‘s brilliance a lot more now than I did when I was a kid. They refuse to be left behind as we barrel forward into the Internet age – I think they were on Vine before I even knew what Vine was. See their take on the “What Does the Fox Say?” under the jump.READ MORE

Turns out Cookie Monster has a second love: Film. In this video by the National Film Society he shares his cookiefied versions of classic movies. I know quite often the response to “[Blank] movie is being remade!” is a hearty grrrrrroan, but if you say you wouldn’t watch The Biscotti Kid you are lying.
Thanks to GeekMom, we also know some of the geeky actors and actresses who’ll be appearing on Sesame Street‘s 44th season, which starts tomorrow: Henry Cavill, Cobie Smulders, Neil Patrick Harris, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Rutina Wesley, Lena Headey, and Peter. Freaking. Dinklage. Check out a picture of Cavill hanging out with Elmo and some Muppet pigs behind the cut, then go re-watch that video of Tom Hiddleston meeting Cookie Monster. You know. If you want.READ MORE

Here is the point where I remind everyone that while this represents the serendipity of PBS approaching Tom Hiddleston for a segment, Disney owns both the Muppets and Marvel, so they could do this kind of thing all the time if they wanted.
(Just not with Sesame Street or Fraggle Rock characters as they are owned by the Children’s Television Workshop and
Viewers Like You the Jim Henson Company.)
