Shiny Happy Monsters

The Five Creepiest Cameos in Sesame Street History (

I don't know about creepy. Odd perhaps, but not creepy. I was reminiscing with MJ about other performances; he remembers Stevie Wonder jamming on "Superstition" once, and it being awesome. I distinctly remember James Taylor singing "Up On the Roof", too.

Are there any that stand out in your brains?

I remember the first airing of Shiny Happy Monsters...

I made a point of watching it... Did I record it? I think I did...

When I worked at, we had a bank of television sets, each tuned to a different station. I remember walking by one morning when Shiny Happy Monsters aired and asking, "What is REM doing on Sesame Street?" I'll never forget that whole newsroom coming to a complete stop and everyone staring at that screen in amazement/disbelief!

Gee...I always rather liked James Taylor doing "Jellyman Kelly." The kids were having a riotous good time.

"Put Down the Duckie" was a good (and star-studded) bit, too.

Can we count Abbey Bartlet as a creepy cameo?

I know it's not Sesame Street, but Alice Cooper's appearance on the Muppet Show has also got to be mentioned as a bit creepy (he was in full goth-rock regalia) but awesome as well.

Oh, the Muppets could be its own separate category of weirdness. Elton John was on the Muppets, too.
