1 The Muppet Mindset: Comic Con Street

Jul 28, 2014

Comic Con Street

San Diego Comic Con was held over the weekend, and as we noted in our News Updates, Sesame Street and The Jim Henson Company both held panels at the world's biggest fan convention. Updates on the Henson panel are still coming in, but the Sesame Street panels were a major success.

Our friends at Nerdist.com have a great recap of the main Sesame Street panel, which featured Eric Jacobson and Grover, Joey Mazzarino and Murray, David Rudman and Cookie Monster, and Carol-Lynn Parente (and hosted by Nerdist's own Chris Hardwick).

The first panel held for Sesame Street was a conversation with the Muppet performers and Muppets, hosted by the amazing Zachary Levi. Lucky for us non-Comic Con attendees, NerdHQ filmed the entire panel for us. It's half an hour long, and 100% delightful. I highly, highly recommend watching it. Joey Mazzarino and Murray steals the show.



Earlier that day, Sesame Street took to Vine to show off Bert's new cosplay costume. Is he Bertman? Batbert? The world may never know.



Then, Murray presented a special edition of "Word on the Street."



And finally, Cookie Monster found his favorite Comic Con costume.



Sesame Street also shared a lot on Instragram from the photo shoot available with Grover, Murray, and Cookie Monster later in the day. Check out some of the great photos below!

We'll be back with more Comic Con coverage as it comes down the pipeline!

  1. The Nerdist summary has Joey giving a shoutout to the 10-year-old who does the Mo Show. It's really great! Check it out at TheZing Zongs You Tube Channel.

  3. Joe, please stop overreacting on comic conventions. If you don't like them, just ignore them.

    Anyway, that was a great panel, though when Levi mentioned Kermit, I was surprised he didn't say anything about the Rapunzel news report sketch considering one of his roles.
