NEWS UPDATE: July 2, 2010

Warner Bros. Games, in association with Sesame Street and Sesame Workshop, announced a few weeks ago that they would be releasing video games starring the Sesame Street characters. The first game, “Cookie’s Counting Carnival” stars Cookie Monster and the second, “Elmo’s A-to-Zoo Adventure” stars Elmo. Each game is available on the Nintendo Wii, the Nintendo DS, and the PC. The Wii versions of the games come packaged with a special Cookie Monster or Elmo Wii-Remote cover that hides many of the buttons to make the game-play easier for young children. The intended audience for these games appears to be very young, but as more information is released perhaps we’ll find something enjoyable for older fans as well.

A Muppet fan, pseudonym “Bruce Wayne,” has posted a YouTube video and a Flickr album chock-full of behind-the-scenes photos from the set of The Muppet Movie. It’s an amazing look behind the cameras of the incredibly ornate sets of the film. From Kermit’s Swamp to Rowlf’s piano bar, the photos here will not disappoint!

Everyone’s favorite furry red monster, Elmo, has taken over the UK. Well… UK TV at least. For the past few days, Elmo has been co-hosting This Morning, a morning TV show in the UK. And, as the video posted on his Facebook page shows, he wreaked some hilarious havoc in London. But wait, there’s more, Elmo also performed an impromptu, a capella performance of some Beyonce and Alicia Keys while being interviewed on the set. Funny… he doesn’t even have a British accent!
