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 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! :-)

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

I voted for cookie monster because he is an original sesame street character. Just like grover, and they should both be higher on the list

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.

He is so cute and funny. I just want to be his friend in real life!

Elmo's alphabet rap is awesome. I love it!

Elmo's so sweet and lovable he really makes the show

I just came here to mock elmo he is terrible worst ever

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).

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

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

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.

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

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.

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

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

I hope he's not mean to Julia

5 The Count

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

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

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

Ernie is the best! I was him for Halloween!

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

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

He's the worst roommate ever, but he's great :0

7 Grover

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

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.

He is hilarious in Both waiter and super grover

8 Bert

Reminds me of Squidward

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

Why is bert this low

Relatable character to be honest

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.

Should be higher than Elmo to be honest.

Always liked Kermit the Frog

Kermit is from both the Muppets and Sesame Street

10 Zoe

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

Get her higher than abby

In love with elmo

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

The Contenders

11 Abby Cadabby

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

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!

12 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

13 Mr. Snuffleupagus
14 Prairie Dawn

She's so cute!

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

15 Harvey Kneeslapper
16 Hoots the Owl

The best saxophone player Sesame Street had ever seen!

17 Guy Smiley

Best gameshow host ever

18 Telly Monster
19 Mr. Hooper

I'm so sad he passed away.

RIP Mr. Hooper!

20 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.

21 Slimey the Worm

Worms are cute

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.

22 Dr. Nobel Price
23 Baby Bear

The best choice right

What's not to love?

24 Yip Yips (Martians)

I loved the Martians they are so cute

Best characters EVER.

25 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!
