Watch: Jimmy Fallon, The Roots, and the Cast of SESAME STREET sing the Sesame Street Theme...

Written by

Earlier this month, the residents of SESAME STREET kicked off their 44th season on PBS KIDS, welcoming a new neighbor to the 'Street with the addition of 'Mando (who I met and did a video with - along with Rosita - earlier this year). This week, some familiar faces stopped by LATE NIGHT WITH JIMMY FALLON, where they joined Fallon and The Roots to perform a new version of the iconic "Sesame Street" Theme Song... with classroom instruments. Watch the video below to see just how hard BIG BIRD, MR. SNUFFLEUPAGUS, COUNT VON COUNT, ELMO, ABBY CADABBY, GROVER, MURRAY, GROVER, ZOE, and COOKIE MONSTER rock out with the LATE NIGHT crew. It's probably the best thing you'll see all week.
