These guys has been around for a very long time now, it's been 40 seasons and 4300 episodes from the day they debuted on television on November 10th 1969, that makes them 41 years old. And here we wanted to find out who are the most popular character among them with your help we hope. Let's bring on the most popular sesame street characters of all time to the world. I really believe we could pull this off if we work together. We will provide the initial list of maybe 5 or 6 characters from the series which we think gets the more positive responds from the audience, and you guys could help us by leaving your comments and casting a vote in our poll located in the end of this post. That way we aim to have the best list around, because it will be mostly based on the audience, it is literally from the audience and back to the audience. But before you really take this list for one character's favor, this list is not based on popularity rank, it is just randomly ordered.

He has starred in his own movie, and he is arguably the biggest characters, well a least in body size he is, as for being the most popular sesame street character of all time, hmm... we'll let you decide. He is an eight-foot two-inch tall bright yellow bird. He can roller skate, ice skate, dance, sing, write poetry, draw and even ride a unicycle. But despite this wide array of talents, he is prone to frequent misunderstandings, well that's one of his signature too, so don't take that away from him. I guess we don't need to say more about him as you all are his fan and you should almost know anything about him, right? You sure knows that he lives in a large nest behind the 123 Sesame Street brownstone and he has a teddy bear named Radar. Radar was given to Big Bird by Gary Burghoff when he guest starred on the show. Later on, however, it was said that Big Bird got the bear as a gift from Mr. Hooper.

In 1985, Big Bird was the star of his own movie Sesame Street Presents: Follow That Bird alongside the cast of Sesame Street. The plot focused on him being moved away to live with his own species by a meddling social-worker.

In Asia he is probably the most popular sesame street character, because most parents play his videos to their toddler childs. He is a furry red monster with large white eyes and an orange nose. He currently hosts the last full 15 minute segment on Sesame Street, Elmo's World, which is aimed at toddlers. He is accompanied by his goldfish Dorothy and silent Charlie Chaplin–like characters named Mr. Noodle, Mr. Noodle's Brother Mr. Noodle, and sometimes, Mr. Noodle's sister Miss Noodle.Elmo is self-described as three-and-a-half years old and characteristically refers to himself in the third person.You should know that Elmo is the only non-human puppet ever to testify before the U.S. Congress. At the request and with the assistance of Rep. Duke Cunningham, he testified before the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services and Education in April 2002, urging support for increased funding in music education.


BERT AND ERNIE

Should we separate them even in this individual list of most popular sesame street character of all time debate? I guess not. Bert and Ernie are two roommates on the long-running television show Sesame Street. The two appear together in numerous skits, forming a comic duo that is one of the centerpieces of the program. Bert and Ernie were built by Don Sahlin from a simple design scribbled by Muppets creator Jim Henson. According to Frank Oz, Sahlin also defined their characters on the basis of their physical appearance: Ernie was an orange and Bert was a banana. In a classic pairing, Ernie appears chubby while Bert appears quite skinny.A typical Bert and Ernie skit follows one of two similar patterns, both beginning with Ernie devising a hare-brained idea and Bert calmly attempting to talk him out of it. Usually this ends with Bert losing his temper and Ernie remaining oblivious to his own bad idea. Sometimes Ernie's idea miraculously turns out to be correct, much to Bert's evident frustration.


OSCAR THE GROUCH

This next contender of most popular sesame street character of all time used to have the color orange, that was during the 1969–1970 season, but now he is that green creature who has no nose, and lives in a garbage can. His favorite thing in life is trash; evidence for this is the song "I Love Trash".
You should know that Oscar inspired an Apple Macintosh hack written by Eric B. Shapiro and shown at the 1989 MacHack conference, featuring a singing animated Oscar that appeared from the trash can whenever a file was thrown away. The hack was so popular that some parents lost the entire contents of their hard disks to preschoolers wanting to see more of Oscar.

This last but not least contender of the most popular sesame street character of all time could become annoying on some occasion, but he is the persistent one, he is best known for his voracious appetite and his famous eating phrases: "Me want cookie!", "Me eat cookie!", and "Om Nom nom nom" (said through a mouth full of food). He often eats anything and everything, including danishes, donuts, lettuce, apples, bananas, as well as normally inedible objects such as salt and pepper shakers, signs, napkins, pencils, typewriters, telephones, motorcycles, Peabody Awards, trucks, a safe, a VW Beetle, and the Letter of the Day. However, as his name suggests, his preferred food is cookies. Chocolate chip cookies are his favorite kind; oatmeal cookies are his second favorite. He is known to have a mother, a younger sister, and an identically-designed cousin, who all share his characteristic blue fur and "googly eyes".
Cookie Monster's theme song, "C is for Cookie", is one of the most famous songs from Sesame Street.
