Jimmy Fallon and The Roots Did the ‘Sesame Street’ Theme Song With Muppet Help


The Muppet cast of Sesame Street joined Jimmy Fallon and The Roots last night to perform the Sesame Street theme song on classroom instruments, complete with a Sesame-themed rap from Black Thought. It’s hard to tell whether The Roots are making Sesame Street cooler or the other way around, but it’s a beautiful melding of late night comedy and children’s television.
