Sesame Street has always had it share of stars over the years. Musicians, athletes, political figures and actors have each had their fare share of time on Sesame Street teaching preschoolers early learning concepts in fun ways that parents and kids would enjoy. These stars are better known to parents than they are to 4 years-olds and therefore serve a purpose of making Sesame Street more entertaining for parents as they watch alongside their preschooler.

Featured celebrities include: Academy Award-nominated actor, Jude Law; Golden Globe Award-winning actors Colin Farrell, Jennifer Garner and Jason Bateman; Emmy Award-winning comedian Wanda Sykes; NFL superstars Reggie Bush and LaDainian Tomlinson; Grammy Award-winning artists Will.i.am, Usher and Michael McKean; pop star Katy Perry; American Idol’s Kara DioGuardi; Modern Family’s Julie Bowen and Ty Burrell; Grey’s Anatomy’s Ellen Pompeo; Parks & Recreation’s Amy Poehler; rap and TV star Rev Run; The Closer’s Kyra Sedgwick; Actors Ryan Reynolds, Rebecca Romijn, Zoe Saldana, Taye Diggs, Idina Menzel, Chris O’Donnell, Jim Parsons, Rachel Griffiths, Anna Faris, Terrence Howard; The View’s Sherri Shepherd; Today Show’s Natalie Morales; The Insider’s Samantha Harris; and Food Network star Alton Brown.
