Sesame Street Meets Les Mis

I'm not sure where this video came from, since it seems to be uploaded magically by a random person on YouTube, but "Sesame Street"'s take on Les Miserables is pretty cute. Their version, Les Mousserables, is about "a French guy who is very sad because he had no cookies." Man, "Sesame Street" really gets us. Thankfully, (spoiler alert) the French guy gets some cookies! But then this lady is sad that she doesn't have cookies for her kid and, well, I won't tell you the whole thing. But what a great story! I can't wait until it opens on Broadway.


Sesame Street has always done a good job entertaining and educating kids since its beginnings in 1969. In recent years, however, they have stepped up their game to include countless pop culture references. Thanks to the latest viral video from Cookie Monster singing his version of Carly Rae Jepsen (see below), I thought it was a good idea to put together some of my favorite Sesame Street videos from the past few years.

Share It Maybe

There have been countless "Call Me Maybe" videos made over the past few weeks, and leave it to Cookie Monster to top it off with the best one yet. I have watched this video a few times and every single time it brings a smile to my face. You know a parody is good when you sing that version instead of the original.

Smell Like a Monster

"Sadly, you are not a monster." Classic Grover. This is a spoof of the Old Spice commercials from a few years ago and Sesame Street did a great job recreating it. Growing up, Grover was my favorite Sesame Street character and he remains my favorite to this day, despite the fact that people tell me I am an adult.


Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark is still going strong on Broadway, but most people remember all the struggles the show had in the beginning. Kids probably didn't understand any of the references, but the folks over on Sesame Street really picked apart the show thanks to my man Grover!
