Ode to Sesame Street celebrities (and Andy Samberg?)

What with the announcement we made that Andy Samberg will appear on Sesame Street (not to mention Bert previously interviewing Andy), we want to share some of our favorite celebrity moments on Sesame Street...

Let's start with Ricky Gervais' lullaby to Elmo:

Sometimes Ricky Gervais (creator of the British version of The Office) hits comedy gold with his British "annoying" style of humor.

Next comes Adam Sandler, and his silly humor works well for kids (maybe a little over their heads)...

Adam and Andy will star together in I Hate You Dad.

Next comes the cute bit with Natalie Portman:

Andy and Natalie's collaboration was of course, Natalie's Rap, which is a far cry from Sesame Streeet.

Next is Jake Gyllenhal, who is separating himself from an octopus:

Jake and Andy did a few things together. Jake appeared in "I Ran So Far" and opposite Andy's Nicholas Cage.

And here's Jack Black talking about octagons:

Andy collaborated with Jack Black on a song, when Jack hosted SNL (Glirk sketch), and Jack also appeared in Awesometown, Andy's pilot show before he got on SNL.

And here Elmo almost upstages Ellen with the lollipop joke (but Ellen saying "Elll..." for a long time was kind of funny):

Ellen is one of Andy's comedic heroes. He first met Ellen when he wrote a line for her to present on the MTV Movie Awards. Then he appeared on her talk show. He lost the 2011 Teen Choice comedy award to her this year (but obviously a worthy win).

Do you have any favorite celebrity appearances on Sesame Street?

Would it be interesting to see Andy do Shy Ronnie on Sesame Street? =^)
