On "Today," Elmo and Abby Cadabby from "Sesame Street" dropped by to introduce to the world the newest character, Rudy, Abby’s new stepbrother. He’ll first appear on the show on Aug. 5.
Sesame Street continued its streak of amazing musical parodies by doing a musical mashup parody of some classic ’80s tunes. The Street crew tackled everything from Culture Club to Wham!, and even got in a “Footloose” parody called “Loose Goose,” featuring Grover in a Kevin Bacon wig. Everyone got in on the action, including The Count, Elmo, and Cookie Monster.
Whitmire was fired last fall after voicing Kermit for 27 years but has stayed quiet about the firing until a recent post on his website.
