Sesame Street Made a Funny, Kid-Friendly Spoof of When Harry Met Sally

It’s a classic odd-couple scenario: She’s polite, patient, and composed, and he’s … furry, ravenous, and obsessed with cookies. In Sesame Street’s typically adorable parody of When Harry Met Sally (titled “When Cookie Met Sally”), Cookie Monster has to learn how to wait his turn after he tries to cut in front of the wrong woman in line at the delicatessen. 

As always, the folks at Sesame Street have neutralized the adult themes of their source material, even managing to make the lead-up to “I’ll have what they’re having” sound innocent. And props go to the stylist who perfectly recreated not one but two of Meg Ryan’s 1980s hairstyles on her Muppet counterpart.
