With the new season of Sesame Street set to begin on Sept. 16, the long-running show has released some YouTube videos just for parents.
First up is Icona Pop’s smash hit single “I Love It”. In the video, Cookie Monster offers his spin on the ubiquitous pop song with “I Want It,” where the furry puppet does his best to resist the temptation of cookies. His message is of self-control and temperance (“Me want it, but me wait”), something parents battling a toddler’s sweet tooth undoubtedly appreciate.
After watching the clip, the show’s notoriously crotchety creator, Kurt Sutter, tweeted his appreciation:
