Ladies and Gentlemen: Tom Hiddleston Meets Cookie Monster


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.)

    Three of my favorite things in one place: Cookie Monster, cookies and Tom Hiddleston. FABULOUS!

    This makes me want to watch Sesame Street again. Like, daily.

    I would be hard pressed to rate those in order of preference myself.

  • KA

    On my rating system, Tom is #1, Cookie Monster #2, cookies #3.

    Tom Hiddleston can teach me about delayed gratification any day.

  • Valerie C.

    That was awesome

    Several things about this video:

    A) The irony of Tom Hiddleston teaching self control is not lost on me, someone who can spend hours on Tumblr reblogging Thor/Avengers .gifs as if I don’t have to get up at 6 AM for work.

    B) I haven’t watched Sesame Street in a long time, but I expect not many people go on and just roll our phrases like “Delayed Gratification” on a children’s show like it’s NBD.

    C) “You have to ask?” Damn straight, Cookie Monster.

    C) I want to be that cookie.

    “Smell that?” Only Loki could tease poor Cookie Monster. I think we all know who the real monster here is.

    That’s a bad, bad girl!

    At first I really wanted to eat a cookie after eating this video… then I realized I just want to eat Tom Hiddleston like a cookie.

    Tom Hiddleston just seems like such a nice guy…really, him being on Sesame Street just makes sense. I hope he gets another appearance in the future…maybe with Grover. They could have adventures and it would be adorable and sweet and educational.

    I am now envisioning a truly awesome Sesame Street remake of the Avengers, with Cookie Monster playing the Hulk role.

    “I have an army.”

    “We have a Monster.”

    “COOOOOOOOOOKIE.” *thumpthumpthump*

    They’re both so cute. ^_^ (And that sounds like the original Cookie Monster, too! XD) ♥

    He was lucky that he had other cookies in the backhand. Loki doesn’t know how close he became for another round of being slapped around for backholding a cookie! ;-9

    Re: B) I can’t decide whether to give more points to Tom for busting out “delayed gratification” on a kids’ show or Sesame Street for being like, “All right, ‘de-layed gra-ti-fi-cation’. Phrase of the day, kids.” Always loved that show.

  • Sarah Brockman

    I would love to be the parent who was making morning coffee during this segment and comes back to my child spouting that phrase.

  • Penny Dreadful

    of all the people to say “delayed gratification”….why does everything he says sound so wonderfully filthy?

  • Veronica waitwhat

    when we were kids, my sibs and i listened to a radio drama called “Adventures in Odyssey”

    one day my 5yr old brother came in from playing and said to my mom, “i’m PARCHED”
    “parched?”
    “yeah. you know, thirsty”

    which, unbeknownst to her, was IDENTICAL to how the scene played out on the show. kids paret back things they hear. it’s why you can’t curse around them :/

    Amazing. So amazing. Someone make, NOW.

    I kind of wanted to go with Oscar. “We have a Grouch.” I mean, he’s already even green! But “Don’t make me hungry. You not like me when me hungry!” is just too good to pass up.
