Cersei and Tyrion Lannister meet their 'Sesame Street' Muppet doubles

"As part of Sesame Street's 50th anniversary celebration, we have a campaign highlighting the importance of respecting one another, even in disagreement-and even in the case of sworn enemies", explains a statement from HBO. "I'm willing to learn and listen if you are".

"I only want what's best for Westeros", Tyrion says. It's Elmo! "Elmo thinks that you two need to respect each other". To there amazement they see a fury red fellow in armor begin to sit at the table with them, shortly after Elmo begins to speak about having respect for each other.

"If we stop fighting and work together, we could be stronger."

Tyrion, the ever-flexible Lannister, then appeals to the Queen; and though it wasn't quite bending the knee, Cersei agrees to try to respect him too. Finally, she dryly replies, "I can try".

But it's hard to remember that when your brain is trying to parse Cookie Monster serving cookies in front of glasses of Westworld's weird milk goo (#Milkworld), as a piano player covers the show's theme song in its signature style. It also posted a video of rapper Common performing a song with Big Bird, Grover and other favorites.

Forget "Avengers: Endgame", "Game of Thrones" and "Sesame Street" join together for the most ambitious crossover event in history.

Randi F. Marshall from Newsday states that a lot of people learned a great deal from the adults on Sesame Street how life was going to be, but as you can imagine that's not how things have turned out today. What more could any of us ask for? Sometimes, Sesame Street visits the world of Game of Thrones, plays it completely straight, and manages to save just a tiny bit of time for humor.

This isn't the first time "Sesame Street" has delved into pop culture, or even HBO's catalog, to teach a lesson.
