Wired magazine has released a YouTube video featuring the characters from the popular and long-lived “Sesame Street” television series in a guest spot where they answer various questions people have over the show.

The questions had been taken from Google directly, but were kept child-friendly

Wired is a magazine that highlights articles and current events that focus on technology and science. This is not the first time the publication had been involved with Jim Henson's characters, as a 2011 publication featured characters from “The Muppet Show” on the cover, and produced an exclusive online gallery as a promotion.

The recent video featuring the classic "Sesame Street" characters seemed to partially serve as promotion for the show's 47th season. The characters who had appeared were Elmo, Abby Cadabby, Grover, Big Bird, Cookie Monster, Count von Count, Oscar The Grouch, Ernie, Bert, and Rosita, and they had been joined by an assistant whose face had not been shown, possibly an allusion to their unseen puppeteers.

During the video, the characters answered questions they had taken from popular Google searches asking questions of the characters. The questions had been kept child-friendly, however, as many viewers pointed out, the video skipped a popular question concerning Bert and Ernie’s relationship.

What were some highlights among the questions asked about the show?

While some of the questions innocently asked about the characters’ personal information, other questions brought to light various questions asked about the show over the years that had become internet memes.

In one of the more controversial questions, Count von Count, who was a parody of Bela Lugosi’s portrayal of Count Dracula, confirmed that he was indeed a vampire, but he “thirsted” for numbers instead of blood.

This has contradicted previous statements made from Sesame Workshop in the past that denied the character was a vampire, although they had referred to him as such at other times, as well.

Cookie Monster had also put an end to rumors that he had become the “Veggie Monster,” referring to rumors at one point made during the show’s production that the character would be retooled as such due to fears of promoting childhood obesity.

Some of the answers were intended to honor long-time fans of the show, as Oscar the Grouch alluded to having a pet worm, Slimey, and his girlfriend, Grundgetta, both of whom are characters that have been given less focus on the show in recent years.

It was confirmed that the show is set in New York, probably a reference to the show being filmed in Astoria, but also pointed out that it exists in other places, also referencing the fact that the show has had many international remakes over the years.
