I Recently came across some cool artwork of some Sesame Street characters in the roles of famous horror movie icons drawn by Isaac Bidwell, with the first and most iconic being Elmo as Freddy Krueger. Check out the Nightmare on Sesame Street artwork gallery below:
For those wondering, I’ll list out each of the Sesame Street characters depicted along with their corresponding horror movie icon:
- Elmo as Freddy Krueger from the Nightmare on Elm Street movies
- Bert as Michael Myers from the Halloween movies
- Snuffleupagus as Jason Voorhees from the Friday the 13th movies
- Telly Monster as what I presume is a Romero style zombie
- Praire Dawn as Regan MacNeil from The Exorcist
- Big Bird as Pinhead from the Hellraiser movies
- Ernie as Chucky from Child’s Play
- Grover wearing Oscars face as Leatherface from Texas Chainsaw Massacre
- Animal as the alien from The Thing
Nightmare on Sesame Street Lyrics by Green Jelly
Coincidentally, there is also a song by the same name from a band called either Green Jelly or Green Jello… Regardless, it’s pretty messed up and have included the lyrics below, I’ll let you Google the YouTube video for it at your own risk:
Sunny days, keeping the clouds away,
On my way to where the end is bleak
Can you tell me how to KILL?
Nightmare on Sesame street!
ernie, Ernie, ERNIE, Bert is dead
Ernie, Meet Bertie Crougar, Bernie
Oh no bert, no!
Take it like a puppet Ernie.
Oh no bert! no!
Take it like a puppet, I’m sick of you freeloadin’
Nightmare on Sesame Street!
It’s feedin’ time, Ernie
Oh no Bert, stop, it’s too big Bert
I’m sick of you and that Big Bird, try this Big Bird
Oh no, stop, it’s too big
Oh, Henson! Henson!
Oh no, Bert it hurts Bert, It hurts!
Yeah, I hope you like my fist in your head.
I’m sorry Bert, I’m sorry!
Take that you freeloader, the rest of
your life is brought to you by the
number 666 and the letters FU
