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".

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's the best plus he's funny not educational

The best Sesame Street character no doubt in my mind. Simple and good humor. C iS fOr CoOkIeS

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.

Best character - ElSherlock

Elmo's the character ever! - andrewteel

I loved Elmo when I was little.

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!

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).

Good luck on your retirement, Spinney.
Thank you for educating and entertaining us for 50 years! - SuperMarioJustin4

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.

Best character - ElSherlock

Big Bird is the guy. He's the face of Sesame Street.

4 Oscar

I hope he's not mean to Julia

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

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.

I love oscar he is grouchy just like I can be and even though he can be mean his behavior shows the children what not to do the people on sesame street use him to teach good manners lessons

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

For me this should be number 3

Ernie is the best! I was him for Halloween!

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

He's funny and it's pretty hard to get old of him. - Yorkshire2001

6 Grover

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

I'll use my n word pass in a good way for him.

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.

7 The Count

I count him as number 1.

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

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

What is funny is that he is a better vampire than Edward Cullen - 445956

8 Bert

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

Reminds me of Squidward

Relatable character to be honest

I'm more similar to Bert while my brother is more similar to Ernie, it's such a coincidence. - Yorkshire2001

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. more.

Should be higher than Elmo to be honest.

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

Always liked Kermit the Frog

Kermit is from both the Muppets and Sesame Street

10 Abby Cadabby

Abby is such a cute and cheery fairy!

She should be BELOW stinky the stink weed BECAUSE she IS a STINKY WOMAN

She is cool

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

The Contenders

11 Snuffaluffagus

It's actually spelt "Mr. Snuffleupagus". - MrSnuffleupagus

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

12 Zoe

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

Get her higher than abby

In love with elmo

I Love Zoe! She's One Of My Favorites.I Believe She Needs More Respect then Abby Cadabby.

13 Hoots the Owl

The best saxophone player Sesame Street had ever seen!

14 Telly Monster
15 Dr. Nobel Price
16 Julia

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

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. - SuperSonic17

17 Mr. Snuffleupagus
18 Baby Bear

The best choice right

What's not to love?

19 Slimey the Worm

Worms are cute - Officialpen

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.

20 Yip Yips (Martians)

I loved the Martians they are so cute

Best characters EVER.

21 Prairie Dawn

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

22 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!

23 Herbert Birdsfoot
24 Alice

Has the cutest face, voice and eyelashes

I love her - Officialpen

25 Herry Monster

He has pants in the books.

Because he is not well known now-a-days, but he is still entertaining

Very fun to watch and is also funny

26 Guy Smiley

Best gameshow host ever

27 Rosita

I think she's pretty cool

She is the first bilingual character on Sesame!

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

28 The Crack Master

Not A Sesame Street Character And That Name Is Very Inappropriate!

29 Elmo's Number Journey

That's not even a character - ZootopiaFan

30 Murray

Because he post some short films to teach kids everything sesame street is the best because it teach kids everything so yay sesame street boo barney!

They were awesome especially in Telephone Rock! So vote for Little Jerry and The Monotones!

47 Benny Rabbit

This easily-irritated rabbit needs to come back! He's my favorite in 123 count with me! It's a shame that he retired in the late 90's along with the rest of the best characters! - medea7
