The Muppets Greatest Music Spoofs

Sesame Street posted a video on YouTube featuring Cookie Monster on July 10 called, “Share it Maybe” which  is obviously a spoof of Carly Rae Jepsen’s song, “Call Me Maybe.” As of this morning, the video has had over 3,800,000 views! The great thing about this is that a large percentage of the viewers are adults.

This isn’t the first time Sesame Street or the Muppets have made headline with viral videos. In case you have missed them, here are ten more of the best spoofs of recent years. Enjoy!

In 2010, Katy Perry produced a spoof of her “Hot N Cold” song with Elmo for Sesame Street but her outfit was too racy for some parents, so it was never aired on the show. However, the video received many views on YouTube.

Also in 2010, The Muppets Studios produced a version of “American Woman” 
featuring Sam the Eagle.

 Beaker tried to create his own version of “Dust in the Wind” with mixed reviews.

In 2010, a slightly morbid version of “Stand by Me” was produced with a bunch of cute bunnies and one blue monster.

In 2009, The Muppets Studios produced their version of Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy”
 featuring Beaker.

And “Classical Chicken” featuring Gonzo and eight chickens.

And  “Habanera” featuring Beeker,  the Swedish Chef and Animal.

And a patriotic tribute celebrating “Stars and Stripes Forever.”

And the Christmas classic “Carol of the Bells” again with Beeker, Swedish Chef and Animal.

But the biggest viral hit for 2009 was the Muppet version of “Bohemian Rhapsody.”
