Sesame Street sparks debate on Twitter with ‘deserted island’ question

2 months ago


If you were stranded on a deserted island out at sea, which Sesame Street character would be the best companion?

The children’s programme itself posed the question on social media, and the answer has proved far more divisive than you might have thought.

Posting pictures of iconic Sesame Street characters to Twitter, the TV show asked: “You’re stuck on a deserted island and you can pick one of these Sesame Street friends to come with you. Who are you picking and why?”

The show gave social media users a choice between The Cookie Monster, Elmo, Grover, and Oscar the Grouch.

The question caused a fair few arguments on the site, with celebrities including Joseph Gordon-Levitt weighing in with their opinions on the furry characters.

Here are the best arguments… Which character would you pick?

1. At first look, Elmo was the obvious choice for many.

2. But for this person, Grover’s work ethic gave him the edge.

3. Cookie Monster would only be useful on Cookie Island.

4. Some were very sure of their convictions.

5. This quite logical answer.

6. Joseph Gordon-Levitt wanted to think outside of the box.

7. Oscar would be the best for finding food…

8. Lastly… we have a practical, if slightly horrifying, answer.
