In the hilarious sketch, the no-nonsense Cookie stops by Sesame Street to teach the puppets some harsh lessons on sharing ("Cookie don't share"), friendship, and the terrible fate of Elmo. The only thing more impressive than the Sesame Street gang's singing, is how well Taraji P. Henson ("The 'P' stands for puppet!") actually did on the show. Maybe C is for crossover, too?
