Sesame Street characters to appear in new video games

Sesame StreetSince 2001, there has not been a video game based on the characters in Sesame Street. This is about to change as the Children's Television Workshop has licensed Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment to create games based on the franchise.

This is how my sick mind works. I'm envisioning "Call of Duty: Sesame Street" in which our beloved muppet characters have been stricken with a zombie plague and must be destroyed by a military platoon. The Count, being already undead, remains unaffected.

Or perhaps "Grand Theft Elmo," where Elmo has gone rogue, stolen a car and is trying to run down the rest of the gang with particular emphasis on his cuteness predecessor, Grover.

Or possibly "Rock Band: Sesame Street." It's similar to the original Rock Band, but instead has songs like "Rubber Ducky," "C is for Cookie" and "Elmo's Song."

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to my game console to play "Leisure Suit Elmo."

Well, Brad Trochalk, I've got news for you.
Neither of those type of games will be released,
because Sesame Street never promotes its
program or video games with violence, and...
(ahem!) it's suitible for both children and
adults. Why would Sesame Street be running
on PBS, PBS Sprout & WETA Kids if it wasn't?

Rock Band: Sesame Street sounds extremely doable. Just scale it down like the DDR for little kids I've seen kicking around lately.
