Top Ten Sesame Street Characters

The Top Ten

1 Cookie Monster 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".

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! :-)

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

Cookie monster is the best character in sesame street he is amazing and brings a smile on my face every time I see him and he is the best when he puts lots of cookies in to mouth and starts eating them like he does it makes the public go wild which means that the cookie monster is the best

Well other than his horrible speech he is my favorite sesame street character too - BreakFastBeast2005

2 Elmo 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.

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 - Ilyas678

Satan when he was a kid

3 Big Bird Big Bird Big Bird is the main protagonist of the children's television show Sesame Street. Officially performed by Caroll Spinney since 1969, he is an eight-foot two-inch tall bright yellow anthropomorphic canary.

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

Big Bird is the bomb. I mean, who can't love a huge fluffy bird?

One of my favourite sesame street characters along with Grover, and Ollie

I Love big bird and this show is amazing and I watched it for a long time

4 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.

He is hilarious in Both waiter and super grover - Hazzyboy

I like Grover because he is so funny!

5 Ernie

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

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

6 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

Oscar is grouchy but educational at the same time. when I used to watch sesame street, I would think, β€œwhy is he so mean? ” I answered the question myself by saying, β€œhe is mean because he is in a less fortunate situation in some way that we may not know.” I also think he teaches kids that your actions affect everyone, and that you should always be aware of this.

7 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 - 445956

The Count is a hundred times better than Edward Cullen a πŸ˜‚ 😈

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. - Yorkshire2001

Why is bert this low

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

9 Kermit the Frog 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.

Always liked Kermit the Frog

Kermit is from both the Muppets and Sesame Street

Should be higher than Elmo to be honest. - CaptainMowzker
