Cookie Monster Asks The Fox ‘What Does The Fox Say?’ (Video)

Sesame Street Cookie Monster The Fox

One of the biggest sensations in music today – even bigger than Miley Cyrus’ tongue or whatever Justin Bieber is up to these days, is the song “The Fox (What Does The Fox Say?)” by Norwegian duo Ylvis, whose video for the tune went viral last month and landed the group on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, which saw the host even jump on the performance (watch both videos here below).

I must admit, I not only laughed my ass off at this song and its video, but I really started to seriously wonder, what does the fox say? The fox isn’t one of the animals on those See N Say toys, and I I’ve yet to encountered a fox out here on the streets of Brooklyn, so…

Of course, I’m not the only one who’s wondering what the fox says. Among the hordes of us scratching our heads about this is Cookie Monster, star of the long-running children series Sesame Street. In a Vine video posted this week, the big blue puppet decided to take a break from nom-nomming on some cookies to ask The Fox (also a puppet) what it says. Check out the Vine video here below to see what the Fox had to say about what the fox says.

Jimmy Fallon, The Roots & Sesame Street

I can easily say that Jimmy Fallon has become one of the greatest nighttime talk show hosts of all time. The SNL alum and The Roots, who serve as the show’s bands, have taken late night to new heights, always bringing something new and fun to the table.

One of those new and fun things Fallon and The Roots have done recently on the show, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, has been to perform the iconic theme song to the long-running children’s television show Sesame Street, “Can You Tell Me How to Get to Sesame Street?,” together with the Sesame Sesame gang, including Big Bird, The Court, Elmo, and more. Oh, and they performed the song using solely classroom instructions.

Check out the video here below of the aforementioned humans and muppets doing the song huddled together in a dressing room.

Tom Hiddleston and Cookie Monster

When he is not too busy trying to make Thor’s life miserable, Tom Hiddleston takes time off to enjoy a cookie.

A new video features the two finding themselves in a situation that involves the sweet snack.

In attempts to stop Cookie Monster from hastily eating a cookie, the British actor teaches everyone’s favorite blue monster from Sesame Street a valuable lesson in self-regulation. Hit the jump to see the video.

Superheroes & Sesame Street Characters On NYC's Citi Bikes

Scott Beale over at Laughing Squid snapped the photo above of various superheroes, like Batman and Captain America, and Sesame Street characters sitting on docked Citi Bikes in New York City.

Beale had no idea why there was such a gathering and I haven’t been able to find out anything about it either, but it is a peculiar sight, even in New York City. It would be one thing if this scenario took place in Times Square, where low-budget costumers fill the streets to get tourists to pay to take photos with them. But, this photo was taken on Centre Street, which is downtown near the courts, where you’re not likely to see the more eccentric side of Manhattan.

Head over to Laughing Squid to see a larger view of the photo.

Jerry Nelson

Jerry Nelson, famed puppeteer who delighted generations of tykes and young people for decades, and was best known for his work with Jim Henson’s Muppets, died yesterday from complications of various types of cancers he had been stricken with. He was 78.

Nelson may well be best remembered by the children of the baby boomers for his portrayal of the memorable Muppet characters on Sesame Street. A short list of some of them include the sleuth Sherlock Hemlock, the alchemic magical Amazing Mumford, the gentle giant Herry Monster, and above all, one of the A-list Muppets on the show, the numerologistic Count Von Count, who in essence, helped teach scores of children how to count from one to ten during his tenure on the program. That character had debuted 40 years ago on the show and quickly became a fan favorite.
