Lupita Nyong'o Teaches Elmo About The Power of Skin and Tickles (Video)

16 September 2014 7:31 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Lupita Nyong'o met Elmo, and the results were predictably adorable. The Oscar-winning “12 Years a Slave” actress appeared on “Sesame Street” this week to discuss the important issue of skin — not only in terms of race (though that came up), but also how our outermost shell functions as an important sensory tool. See video: Sesame Street Adorably Parodies ‘Star Wars’ With ‘Star S'Mores’ After all, without skin, it'd be impossible to know if something is hot or cold, prickly or furry, or flawless enough to be put front and center in a major cosmetics advertising campaign.

‘Sesame Street’s’ ‘Star Wars’ Parody Is Adorable and About Self Control

15 September 2014 7:37 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Sesame Street has created an adorable, pun-filled Star Wars parody called Star S’Mores featuring a collection of brave intergalactic snack warriors including Luke Piewalker, Flan Solo (Cookie Monster!), Chewie the Cookie and Princess Parfaita. Leave it to Sesame Street to come up with the sweetest Star Wars parody yet.And as per usual, the Sesame Street parody has an important message for the children who watch them; this time teaching kids about self-control. Watch the video below. Enjoy!

To help Flan Solo control his urges, the crew seeks help from the wise and wrinkled mentor Only One Cannoli. Cannoli teaches Solo to use the Four, which literally involves Solo counting to four when his cravings are spinning out of control. When that doesn’t work, the group seeks out the even wiser and more wrinkled Groda, who teaches Solo yet another form of self-control.

Watch Sesame Street's Star Wars spoof starring the Cookie Monster

15 September 2014 6:55 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

A long time ago, in a cookies and Milky Way galaxy far, far away...

Luke Piewalker, Flan Solo, and Chewie the Cookie are on a mission to save Princess Parfaita, but unfortunately Flan Solo (played by the Cookie Monster) is too distracted by Chewie the Cookie and must learn the art of self control.

Titled Sesame Street: Star S'Mores, the spoof sees Flan Solo attempt the power of the four - which involves counting to four - with the help of Only One Cannoli in a bid to fend off his constant cookie cravings.

When it doesn't work, the group move onto wrinkled Groda for another solution, before finding Darth Baker, who holds the key.

So kids, next time you need some self control, take a leaf out of the Cookie Monster's book »

Elmo and Cookie Monster Sound Off on Sesame Street's Best Guest Stars While Revealing Their Shocking Celebrity Crushes

15 September 2014 6:02 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

What better way to start your week than with a healthy dose of Sesame Street's finest? Elmo and Cookie Monster headed to E! News Monday to celebrate the PBS show's 45th anniversary. Amazing, right? And in honor of the impressive milestone, Terrence Jenkins and Giuliana Rancic had to ask the fan-favorites what they thought of some of their biggest guest stars. Elmo called the boys of One Direction "nice young gentlemen" and referred to Lupita Nyong'o and First Lady Michelle Obama as "pretty."   When asked about Ed Sheeran, however, Elmo got a serious case of the giggles before describing "The A-Team" singer as "talented."

Watch: 'Star Wars' Gets the 'Sesame Street' Treatment in Cute Parody

15 September 2014 10:43 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

The iconic and long-running children's television program "Sesame Street" clearly has their finger on the pulse of pop culture, and they've helped kids learn helpful things by spoofing films like The Hunger Games and Lord of the Rings. Now they're back with yet another topical parody of Star Wars, using the classic trilogy to teach kids about self-control with none other than Cookie Monster. This Crumby Pictures production is called Star S'Mores, and it takes place in a cookies and milky way galaxy far, far away. And that's just the beginning of the puns and pure goofiness "Sesame Street" brings to the sci-fi saga. Watch! Here's the "Sesame Street" parody of Star Wars straight from the show's YouTube page (via SlashFilm): I love that Cookie Monster (playing Flan Solo here, who almost murders his cookie sidekick Chewie) regularly has his own movie parodies to teach kids lessons, so much »

Sesame Street Adorably Parodies ‘Star Wars’ With ‘Star S'Mores’

15 September 2014 6:05 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Eat your heart out, J.J. Abrams. With over a year to go before the massively anticipated new sequel's release, the great minds at “Sesame Street” have given us a much-needed taste of “Star Wars” with their latest parody, “Star S'Mores.” See video: ‘Sesame Street’ Muppets Help Jimmy Fallon With ‘Tonight Show’ Hashtags As you might have guessed, it is dessert-themed. And yes, that means Cookie Monster plays a prominent role … as Flan Solo. There are puns aplenty in this sweet short, with a cast loaded with scrumptious names. In addition to Flan Solo, we have Luke Piewalker, Princess Parfaita, Chewie the Cookie, »

Stop What You're Doing and Watch This 'Sesame Street' Parody of 'Star Wars' (Video)

15 September 2014 3:29 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"Sesame Street" parodies are kind of the best, so when a new one drops, you need to drop everything you're doing and watch it... especially when it's a riff on "Star Wars."

This latest spoof is called "Star S'mores" and it features characters like Luke Piewalker, Flan Solo (played, of course, by Cookie Monster), Only One Cannoli, Darth Baker, and a lovable sidekick character called Chewy, who is, literally, a Cookie (get it?) There's also an amazing moment when they go to meet a Yoda-like character played by Grover and the Cookie Monster says, "You remind me of somebody... But who?" (For the record, Grover was originally voiced and performed by original Jim Henson confederate Frank Oz, as was Yoda. Oz occasionally still does the character, although Eric Jacobson more regularly performs Grover. Can't tell for sure who does the job in this spoof.)

Honestly do you need to know anything else? »

Elmo, Cookie Monster's CBeebies show Furchester Hotel starts this month

12 September 2014 1:10 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Elmo and Cookie Monster's new CBeebies puppet show The Furchester Hotel begins later this month (September), the BBC has confirmed.

The Sesame Street pair star alongside brand new characters in the kids' show set in a haphazardly run 'almost world-class' hotel.

The team behind Sesame Street is co-producing the project with the BBC channel. It is aimed at 3-6-year-olds and is filmed at CBeebies' new base at MediaCityUK in Salford, Manchester.

Describing the characters, the BBC wrote: "As guests arrive at the hotel they are greeted by monster owner Funella Furchester, her loving husband, Furgus Fuzz, and their daughter, the unflappable Phoebe Furchester-Fuzz.

"Elmo, Phoebe's cousin who is on an extended visit and Cookie Monster, who has landed his dream job as room service and dining room waiter, join the Furchester family at the hotel. Completing the ensemble is Isabel, a furry bell monster - guests won't get »

7 Unbelievably Cool Musicians Who Appeared on 'Sesame Street' (Video)

12 September 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Sesame Street might not be as shmancy as, say, the Meatpacking District circa "Sex and the City," but it has its fair share of hip visitors.

The latest "Sesame Street" music video features the wondrous Janelle Monáe, and it's just what you need on a Friday afternoon. Bert's bumming, Cookie Monster is burning his snacks, Big Bird can't dunk a basketball, and the Two-Headed Monster can't seem to find the beat. It's easy to be discouraged, but just as they're all about to toss in the towel, Monáe appears in a stylin' tuxedo to teach them about "The Power of Yet." It's catchy, groovy, and completely adorable - and the perfect song to go with the 45th anniversary of the long-running show!

Monáe isn't the first musician to visit Sesame Street, and she surely won't be the last. Check out some of the other stand-out appearances from years past, »

'Sesame Street' Stars Visit 'Tonight Show' — And It's Predictably Adorable

12 September 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The Muppets helped say goodbye to Jimmy Fallon's Late Night in February, and now the equally adorable Sesame Street gang has stopped by his Tonight Show. Elmo, Big Bird and Oscar helped Fallon read hashtags — and the results were delightful. And on the other end of the "wholesome" spectrum, Jason Bateman told David Letterman a story about how growing long hair for a role benefited him in the bedroom. "I'm set for the month" took on a whole new meaning after last night's interview. What were your favorite moments from Thursday's late night shows?
