Jim Parsons and Ty Burrell on 'Sesame Street'

Posted on

Awww. The most recent group of celebrity Sesame Street spots have been pretty awesome, and these are no exception. Some of the segment assignments seem a bit arbitrary — Idina Menzel and Taye Diggs explaining “allergic”? — but others seem perfectly appropriate. Who doesn’t want to cling to Jude Law?

Whose segment did you like better, PopWatchers: Jim Parsons or Ty Burrell?
