Now before you get all excited, the decision is not yet official. However, it is true that Sesame Street’s Cookie Monster could be a new host for Saturday Night Live!
As you may or may not know, Cookie Monster is by far my favorite monster from Sesame Street, so hearing this news immediately caught my attention. If Cookie Monster were to host SNL, it would make me a very very happy camper.
That being said, Cookie Monster still needs our help to make his hosting debut a reality! All you have to do is head to his Facebook Page and click on the “Like” button. Last time I checked, he has well over 100 thousand fans, so I think he has a good chance at this!
Another Sesame Street story! The company just seems to be going through a stint of great press lately.
In any case, I couldn’t help but post up the video they just released featuring Grover in a towel. The segment is designed to teach kids about the word “on,” but it’s also a spoof on the famous Old Spice commercial that has been circulating on the interwebs as well.
I guess Katty Perry was just determined to get a TV spot with puppets after the recent Elmo/cleavage fiasco on Sesame Street. Whatever the case may be, it was recently announced that the pop star will guest star on a very special episode of the Simpsons. That’s right, one involving puppets and live action.
Don’t worry, you’re not the only ones thinking, “If the Simpsons could choose anyone to be the very first live guest on the show, why choose Katy Perry?”
Who are The Flying Karamazov Brothers and how do you pronounce their name? Well, to answer the second question, it’s a Russian name that is in reference to the 1880 philosophical and dramatic novel “The Brothers Karamazov” by Fyodor Dostoyevsky. It is pronounced kara-mat-zof (I don’t speak Russian or know how to properly write words phonetically, so that will have to do). Think of it this way: take the “cara” from caramel, the “mat” from matzo, and the “zov” from Marakazov.
The blogosphere has really been buzzing about the recent incidents with Elmo and the music video she taped with him on Sesame Street. Apparently, critics said the video was just too raunchy to put on TV in front of the eyes of preschoolers.
Perry was invited on Sesame Street in order to film a segment for a show that was scheduled to air sometime around New Years Eve (they’re way ahead of the game over there on Sesame Street aren’t they?). The segment features Perry preparing to meet Elmo for a play date. Perry is expecting to play dress-up, while Elmo has other ideas entirely (minds out of the gutter please, we’re not at the raunchy part yet). In any case, Sesame Street posted the video on YouTube as a promotion for the new season. However, the video made the YouTubers excited for an entirely different reason (okay, here’s the raunchy part).
