  1. Sarah Michelle Gellar is Disappointed on Sesame Street

    Once More With Feeling

    I feel you, Sara. I am constantly ordering cheerleader asado burritos by mistake. And then by the time you take it back to the office and actually notice the mistake you just eat it anyway because you're too lazy to go back to the restaurant. Previously in Sesame Street

  3. Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellan Take Pictures With Time Square Elmo Because They’re The Best

    I'm just going to leave this here.

    Patrick Stewart posted a pretty amazing photo on his Twitter account a few hours ago. Shouldn't Stewart be on his honeymoon right now? With his wife? Not the dude who married the two of them? Wait, who am I kidding. Of course Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellan would go on a honeymoon together. Bless their hearts.

  4. Lawsuit Against Elmo Puppeteer Includes Phrases Like “Crystal Meth Sex Party”

    I'll level with you, folks. I've been kinda hoping the other shoe just wouldn't drop regarding allegations that Elmo puppeteer Kevin Clash had sex with underage boys for years while also bringing to life one of America's most beloved icons of childhood. After a brief lull that almost let us forget that happened, the story has returned in full force, with one of Clash's accusers bringing a lawsuit against Clash making the details of his allegations more clear and forever connecting the phrases "Elmo puppeteer" and "crystal meth sex party" in the American psyche.

  6. Elmo Puppeteer Vindicated! Accuser Recants Allegations, Childhood Restored

    We reported yesterday on the story that Elmo puppeteer Kevin Clash had been accused of having a sexual relationship with a teenager. Good news, everyone! The New York Times says the anonymous accuser has recanted the allegations. In a statement made by his lawyers, the accuser is now calling the relationship an "adult consensual" one. That's great news, because yesterday we felt gross. All. Day. Long.

  8. Childhood Ruined: Puppeteer For Sesame Street’s Elmo Accused of Affair With Teen

    This morning in "Things That Are Terrible" news, The New York Post is reporting that Kevin Clash -- the puppeteer who has brought beloved muppet Elmo to life for decades -- has taken a leave of absence from his work on Sesame Street in the wake of allegations that he had a sexual relationship with a then 16-year-old boy. If you can think of anything more inappropriate or childhood marring this morning, we very seriously don't want to hear about it.

  10. So Long Judy Freudberg, Sesame Street Veteran; Writer Behind Land Before Time and American Tail

    so long and thanks for all the fish

    Chances are, if you're a regular visitor to this site, you're around the age where Sesame Street and the early directorial efforts of Don Bluth were a major part of your childhood. No really, we have statistics. We're absolutely not projecting our personal experience onto others. And the thing that Sesame Street, The Land Before Time, and An American Tail have in common are Judy Freudberg, a writer behind all three. After a forty year career in children's entertainment that began as a script typist for Sesame Street Workshop in 1971 and earned her seventeen Emmys, Freudberg died this week of a brain tumor at the age of 63.

  11. Joy of the Day: Jimmy Fallon, Andy Samberg, and Elmo

    it's time to play the music

    Elmo took up a guest spot on last night's Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, engaged in a bit of monologuing, and revealed that there's definitely something strange between him and Andy Samberg. Sesame Street's 42nd consecutive season debuted this weekend, and focuses on a STEM curriculum (that's Science, Technology, Engineering and Math), so as you might have noticed, that's right up our alley. Or street.

  12. Craig Ferguson Teaches Elmo the Word “Experiment” [Video]

    Ask a Muppet

    In a highly academic lesson, Craig Ferguson teaches Elmo about what an experiment is. This particular experiment involves chickens lifting a comedian and transporting him somewhere. And that means next week's word is "irony"! They will not be calling Alanis Morrissette to explain it. (That was a 1990s joke.) (via Sesame Street on YouTube)

  13. Happy Birthday, Jim Henson

    Jim Henson, artist, puppeteer, freaky long-haired dirty cynical hippie, and source of a large percentage of what was good in our (and I daresay your) childhoods was born seventy-six years ago today. You may also have noticed that Elmo is prominently featured next to the YouTube logo today. We have no idea whether these things correlate in any way, but you can watch Elmo's new YouTube interview below. There's also something for those of you who think he's a "furry red menace," too.

  14. Jonah Hill, On Sesame Street: On Mustaches

    Jonah Hill recently appeared alongside Sesame Street's Elmo to explain the finer points of mustachedom. Unfortunately, there was no discussion about the concept of neckbeards. Perhaps they're saving that one for a future episode. Video below:
