The thing I love most about Conan O’Brien is he does bits that are so bad, you know he is going to go to hell for them.
His latest one is in honor of Sesame Street’s 45th anniversary, and he had Ernie getting his first colonoscopy. That is awful enough, but the conversation between the TBS late night host and the popular puppet takes it to a whole new level. Especially when they go there. There as in they make a joke in reference to Ernie having something up his bum, you know the one I am talking about. That wisecrack is the funniest thing from this segment, but it is not the worst, I mean best, I mean I don’t know. There are so many emotions after watching that and the biggest one is happiness from laughing so hard!
If that justify my headline, then this other bit from yesterday’s show will. I don’t think this segment about the musical Bears in our Pool needs explanation. It is as ridiculous as you think it is going to be and worse than you can imagine, but it is so brilliant you can’t help but to love it.
It is things like this that make Conan’s show almost too much for me to bear. But then again these gags definitely make my days sunny and keep the clouds away.
Before James Earl Jones was just saying three letters for CNN, he was saying all 26 of them for Sesame Street. How sexy is the bald 37 year old in that 1969 episode?
Fun fact – He was Sesame’s Street’s first celebrity guest start! Happy 45th Birthday to the show that taught us our ABC’s and 123’s.
The normally grumpy (I say that with love) Ice Cube is on Sesame Street and it is astounding. That’s right, the rapper turned actor’s word was astounding and he used magic in order to demonstrate the word to Elmo. The first two tricks are good, but the last one is ASTOUNDING! That’s because Ice Cube turned himself into his own name! You know that he has been wanting to do that for a very long time, almost as long as we have been wanting to see it.
I don’t know what was more astounding about this segment, Ice Cube becoming an ice cube or that is the happiest we’ve ever seen him. I say it is a toss up because both things from him are equally as astounding!!!
Aziz Ansari is going to be on Sesame Street and the kids educational show gave him the perfect word to teach kids. His word is “ridiculous”! I can’t think of a more ridiculous actor to demonstrate that word to Grover, can you? It’s ridiculous how spot on he is for the lesson. And because of that he is ridiculously good in this segment.
Am I being ridiculous or do you think they were ridiculous to give him that word?
Viola Davis is very serious on How to Get Away with Murder, but don’t forget she has a fun side. One you can see when she teaches Elmo about the word “fiesta” on Sesame Street. Maybe this teach the teacher to have a party on her ABC drama every now and again. Because who doesn’t look better when they are having some fun.
Sesame Street takes on Twilight: Breaking Dawn and I just want to eat it up. As cute as it is, the best part is that the Muppet who plays Belly plays it with just as much emotion as Kristen Stewart. As in she doesn’t have any. It’s like she was dead long before she was a Yumpire, just like Bella. Isn’t it uncanny how perfectly she nailed it?
Kat Dennings stars on 2 Broke Girls, so she knows a little bit about the word broke. Well on Sesame Street, we find out she also knows a thing or two about repairing broken things. That’s because she got to teach Abby about the word repair. Which is a good thing since the actress broke the word repair. Do you think she will be able to repair, repair? You just have to watch to find out.
2 Broke Girls will be back on CBS October 27th, so hopefully this will hold you over until then.
In all the years I have been watching Sesame Street, I don’t remember ever seeing Cookie Monster make cookies. Well that is no longer the case because today on Queen Latifah‘s daytime talk show, he made some chocolate chip cookies with some help from Elmo.
If this doesn’t put a smile on your face today, nothing will. I know I am grinning from ear to ear after watching this very sweet cooking segment.
Mr. Stephanopoulos spoke to Mr. Snuffleupagus on Good Morning America today and we got a mouthful. Try saying Mr. Snuffleupagus & Mr. Stephanopoulos more than once without slurring your speech. Better yet, try spelling their names with your eyes closed. Does your head hurt? I know I was complete mess when I tried to do both challenges back to back. And here I thought that was Sesame Street was supposed to teach us the easy stuff, there ain’t nothing easy about Mr. Snuffleupagus & Mr. Stephanopoulos.
Thanks to trying to saying their names together more than once, I am sounding a lot like Cindy Brady now.
Wendi McLendon-Covey is going to be on Sesame Street and she taught Elmo all about the word “strenuous”. But The Goldbergs’ sMother learned that it is very strenuous to teach Elmo about that word. Even though she ran for him and lifted a big huge rock for him, he still didn’t understand it. It was until she proved that she is no chicken and played a tough game of Tug of War that he finally understood the meaning of the word. Which is good for because I am not really sure how much more strain she could’ve taken by teaching him that lesson.
Good thing for her, she is back working on The Goldbergs now which is a lot less strenuous for her. You can see her in all new episodes of The Goldbergs as our favorite television mother of the new millennium on ABC starting September 24th.
