Mad Men ended on Sunday and Christina Hendricks is already back on our televisions. The much loved red head is going to be on Sesame Street and she is going to teach Elmo about technology. Something Joan Holloway knows nothing about, but Hendricks does. She knows all about lap tops, cell phones, cameras, tablets and eReaders, while only one of those readily available back in the days of Mad Men. Hey kids, can you guess which one that is?
Want to feel really old, ask a kid which item was around the ’60s and see how many of them guess the right answer.
Sesame Street did a parody on The Avengers, and Aveggies wound up ruining the blockbuster. When went to see the movie, we were impressed by all of their powers but maybe we shouldn’t have been. Because as Cookie Monster ate their abilities, they seemed useless.
Watch the video and tell me how pointless Captain America seems without his shield and how wasteful Thor is without his hammer. They are just like you and me and we are boring.
Cookie Monster smash. As in he destroyed a great movie.
Zach Galifianakis is on Sesame Street and Murray reworked a nursery rhyme for his guest. Instead of Jack be Nimble, it was Zach be Nimble. Only problem is that the Between Two Ferns host didn’t know what the word nimble means. So Murray had a piranha chase him around and the Hangover star got real nimble, real quick. You know Zach be nimble, Zach be quick…
So now we know how he lost all of that weight, he has been chased by the killer fish for all of these months. Poor Nimble Zach!
Taraji P Henson hosted Saturday Night Live yesterday and she brought Cookie with her. She decided it was time to run a different Empire, so she took over Sesame Street. Let’s just say the sun ain’t clearing the clouds away anymore. Especially for Elmo.
So how does the original Cookie Monster feel about the new one? He Tweeted, “Me finally meet da other cookie monster everybody talk about!!! @TherealTaraji not blue and furry like me imagined.” He better watch out, or he will be the one that is covered only in skin and she’s wearing his blue fur as a fur!
Ed Sheeran took a trip to Sesame Street and he was so happy that he had to sing with some of the locals there. The red head along with Grover, Abby, Cookie Monster, Elmo and Murray jammed together as they rocked out their new tune Two Different Worlds. The song is about differences between life at school and at home, and of course home sounds so much better!
So listen to their delightful ditty because it will totally bring a big smile to your face. I know I can’t stop smiling since I heard it!
Adam Scott is on Sesame Street and his word is awful. Only thing is Murray didn’t tell him what his word for the educational programming would be, instead he decided to show it to him. The red monster did this by giving the Parks & Rec star some gross tasting cupcakes, a bad smelling cologne and played a horrible song for him. All of them were awful.
The only thing that wasn’t awful in this Word of the Day segment was the interaction between Murray and Scott. That was the opposite of awful!
You’d think being on Sesame Street would be a relaxing job, but for Zach Braff it made him very anxious. That is because it was his word to teach the viewers about. A word that wasn’t given to Telly and him, so that made them anxious. What made them even more anxious was when they were given a Jack in the Box to reveal their word. The anxiety of waiting to find out what was in that kids’ toy was almost too much for these anxious guys. So much so, I thought it was going to be too much for their hearts to handle. And that made me anxious.
We all know that Cookie Monster loves cookies and that nothing can come between him and them. That is until Sir Ian McKellan was tasked to teach him about the word resist on Sesame Street. At first Gandalf tried to demonstrate the word by trying to get the blue Muppet to resist a golden ring, but that lesson did not get through to him. So he tried it again, this time using a cookie and he got the message loud and clear. Once Cookie Monster was done being schooled, it was finally time for him to give up resisting the cookie and to eat it all up! A well deserved treat for a good student who couldn’t ask for a better teacher!
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.
