Top Ten Sesame Street Characters

The Top Ten

1 Cookie Monster Cookie Monster is a Muppet on the long-running children's television show Sesame Street. He is best known for his voracious appetite and his famous eating phrases, such as "Me want cookie!" "Me eat cookie!" and "Om nom nom nom".

I love cookie monster! He is my favorite! You can go to my website sesamestreetlovers. Weebly.com. There at my website you can see all about all of these characters that are on this list. Including cookie monster who is the best sesame street characters I have ever seen and heard of. I have all kinds of cookie monster stuff. I have so many shirts and backpacks and a wallet and hats so I love cookie monster and I hope sesame street is always is on television, because I just love watching sesame street everyday I come home from my school. And I never want them to stop making sesame street or cookie monster

Cookie Monster is THE best, hands down...I was 3-4 years old in the very early '70's, when Sesame Street itself was in it's infancy. I loved Cookie Monster then, and I love him now at age 51. The simple clean good humor of his cookie eating behavior and his signature "OM, NOM,NOM, NOM, is a timeless classic. If I ever had children, they would've been introduced to Cookie Monster rapidly.

He is just adorable with that belly hanging. Sweet too. I took my daughter to sesame place in PA for her 4th birthday and she absolutely loved them. We saw the parade and all the shows and bought her stuff animals and she even went to Dine with me and and pretty much all of them where there. It was an amazing memory for my sweet girl. Cookie Monster you Rock! :-)

He's so awesome! My sister loves Cookie Monster, and so do I! I even have a Cookie Monster shirt. Whenever I eat a cookie at lunch, me and my friends always say "ME WANT COOKIE! OM NOM NOM! "
And C is for Cookie is a classic. "C is for cookie, that's good enough for me! Cookie, cookie, cookie starts with C! "

2 Elmo Elmo is a Muppet character on the children's television show Sesame Street. He is a furry red monster with a falsetto voice, who hosts the last full fifteen-minute segment on Sesame Street, "Elmo's World", which is aimed at toddlers.

Horray for sesame street, horray for big bird, and mostly horray for elmo wait? Elmo? That should be number one he rocks everything ( execpt for celebrites with elmo and evil elmo Shdder ) but still I love elmo even much better than cookie monster why is he on 1? He's only about cookies elmo has his own world dummies.

Epmo looks adorable, sounds adirable and IS adorable. His fluffy, furry red skin makes him the best, too. He is so good that he even has 15 minutes of the show dedicated to him, Elmo's world!

Elmo is cute and famous because he has a short show from sesame street called elmos world so I will give him a gold medal for that yayy!

He should be number 1 because he is the most popular Sesame Street character!

3 Big Bird Big Bird is the main protagonist of the children's television show Sesame Street. Officially performed by Caroll Spinney (1969-2015), Daniel Seagren (1969-1970) and Matt Vogel (since 1998), and voiced by Carroll Spinney (1969-2018) and Matt Vogel (since 2002).

I feel Elmo's a bit too popular. Can we bring big bird higher? He's friendly, yellow and he is sesame Street. He IS.

I met Caroll Spinney at Wizard World, and signed a picture of himself, Big Bird, and Oscar together. Best. Convention. EVER!

Good luck on your retirement, Spinney.
Thank you for educating and entertaining us for 50 years!

Such a beautiful bird, Yellow is my second favourite colour and so adorable

4 Oscar

Oscar doesn't deserve to be Number One on this list. Instead, he deserves to be at the very bottom because of how much of a bully he is. Hell, I remember him ruining Christmas for his neighbors in Christmas Eve on Sesame Street. If I'm any of those folks, I'd beat the crap out of him.

Everyone bullies poor Oscar. They call him a grouch. Of course he's a grouch - he lives in an f-ing trash can!

Something about a grouchy green puppet living in a trash can is just wonderful

He and Bert are the 2 big grumps of Sesame Street

5 The Count

My daughter's favorite character... when she was a little girl. She'd laugh and beg me to imitate him for hours!

The Count captured the hearts of parents and children being curious and humorous and enlightening.

I thought it was really entertaining when he counted up to 10 with his piano thing

What is funny is that he is a better vampire than Edward Cullen

6 Ernie Ernie is an orange Muppet character on the long running PBS and HBO children's television show Sesame Street.

Ernie is a bit like Grover. Always foolish yet so funny at the same time.

He used to be my favorite character! Either this or Elmo!

He's funny and it's pretty hard to get old of him.

Ernie is the best! I was him for Halloween!

7 Grover

Grover is so funny! He brings a sense of humor to older kids from a show meant for three year olds. Elmo is overrated, Cookie Monster is cool, too, and so are Bert and Ernie. But Grover tops them all. I love to watch his encounters with Mr. Johnson, especially the "Speedy Pizza" special in the movie "Elmo's Magic Cookbook." (PS Good movie.) If you haven't heard of Grover and Mr. Johnson, I recommend looking it up. I have also always thought it is cool how he is Super Grover and Grover at the same time. Grover tops all others!

I asked a kid in my class what color Grover was, and he asked who Grover is! I told him I was talking about Grover from Sesame Street, and he said he'd never seen the show. That explains his sick and twisted soul.

I have a dog is name is rover
He's my dog and he's the best
I know a muppet and it's called Grover
It's a muppet and should be in the top 4!

I love his personality, his appearance. Everything about him is just amazing

8 Bert

Bert is related to Squidward Tentacles from Spongebob Squarepants, Ren Hoek from Ren and Stimpy, Mike Wazowski from Monsters, Inc.

I'm more similar to Bert while my brother is more similar to Ernie, it's such a coincidence.

Relatable character to be honest

Reminds me of Squidward

9 Kermit the Frog Kermit the Frog is a Muppet character and Jim Henson's most well-known creation. Introduced in 1955, Kermit is the straight man protagonist of numerous Muppet productions, most notably Sesame Street and The Muppet Show, as well as in movies, specials, and public service announcements through the years. ...read more.

Kermit was one of the biggest characters on the show when I was a kid. So a vote for Kermit it is.

Kermit is from both the Muppets and Sesame Street

Should be higher than Elmo to be honest.

He was on Sesame Street temporarily.

10 Snuffaluffagus

MY all time favorite! Who cares that I am 50 years old!

My second favorite character behind big bird

A giant singing mammoth, what's not to like

I'm not scared of him anymore

The Contenders

11 Zoe

Zoe is so sweet and I love how she seems spunky!

Please kill me, but I prefer Abby Cadabby over her.

Get her higher than abby

In love with elmo

12 Abby Cadabby

Abby has proven to be a great addition to the Sesame Street gang!

Don't vote Abby, she ruined Sesame Street.

Abby is such a cute and cheery fairy!

Get her off of here!

13 Prairie Dawn

I literally forgot about her. She’s pretty cool.

She's so cute!

14 Harvey Kneeslapper
15 Hoots the Owl

The best saxophone player Sesame Street had ever seen!

16 Guy Smiley

Best gameshow host ever

17 Telly Monster
18 Mr. Hooper

I'm so sad he passed away.

RIP Mr. Hooper!

19 Julia

One of the cutest characters on Sesame Street, and one of the few characters on a children’s show to have autism. Should be in the top 5.

A new addition to Sesame Street and the first character with autism.
She's really cute, and her autistic traits are shown in a more positive light, being both sensitive and insightful towards the condition.

She Is My Inspiration I Have Autism As Well But My Is More Moderate And I Am 12

20 Slimey the Worm

A shoutout to Slimey:

You should be #1 on the list! You are the best Sesame Street character ever!

Slimey is awesome. You just can't beat a puppet that is 7cm long.

Worms are cute

21 Dr. Nobel Price
22 Baby Bear

The best choice right

What's not to love?

23 Yip Yips (Martians)

I loved the Martians they are so cute

Best characters EVER.

24 Roosevelt Franklin

Roosevelt is extremely underrated! People, Roosevelt was one of the main characters in Sesame Street's earliest years, so respect him and place him higher on this list!

Roosevelt deserves better!

25 Rosita

She is the first bilingual character on Sesame!

I love when she sings mambo i, i, i!

I think she's pretty cool
