Sesame Street is going to be at Comic Con International in San Diego! So tuck your cape into your mild-mannered suit, stretch your mutant healing power, and learn to talk to fish, because it sounds like they’ve got an awesome panel lined up!
On Sunday, July 27 at 10:15am in Room 6A, Nerdist’s Chris Hardwick will be moderating an all-star panel of Sesame celebs, including Eric Jacobson (Grover and Bert), Joey Mazzarino (Murray Monster, Sesame Street Head Writer and Director), David Rudman (Cookie Monster and Baby Bear), and Carol-Lynn Parente (Executive Producer).
They will also be screening the upcoming episode “Numeric Con”, which features some of the costumed characters you see above, including “Fiverine”, Elmo in his Batman duds, and (apparently) Leslie Carrara-Rudolph as a giant foot. Hey, I’ve seen stranger things on the convention floor. They’ll also be screening a new “Crumby Pictures” segment called “Star S’Mores”, which should be pretty awesome.
We’re pretty excited about this new episode, so we’ll have a lot more coverage on it once it airs in the fall. But if you’re lucky enough to be going to Comic Con International, you’ll get to see it in just a few short weeks!
