'Sesame Street' Creators Are Suing Studio Behind Melissa McCarthy's Puppet Movie 'Happytime Murders'

Sesame Workshop, the parent company of the beloved children’s show Sesame Street, is suing STX Productions over its new Melissa McCarthy movie The Happytime Murders.

The upcoming movie is “a filthy comedy set in the underbelly of Los Angeles where puppets and humans coexist. Two clashing detectives with a shared secret, one human (McCarthy) and one puppet, are forced to work together again to solve the brutal murders of the former cast of a beloved classic puppet television show.” (Watch the trailer now!)

The workshop is asking that the studio “simply drop the references to Sesame Street from The Happytime Murders marketing materials – a relatively small burden compared to the devastating and irreparable injury Defendants are causing.”

The poster for the movie has the tagline “No Sesame. All Street.”

The plaintiffs say that the “Defendants have refused, and the confusion and tarnishment are building, as evidenced in numerous social media postings.”

The Happytime Murders is directed by Brian Henson, the son of the late Jim Henson, who rose to fame developing characters for Sesame Street and later creating The Muppets.

Watch Sesame Street's Adorable 'Despacito' Parody (Video)

If you haven’t seen Sesame Street‘s “Despacito” parody video, “El Patito,” you’re missing out.

Ernie, Bert (“Oh no, not this song again”), and Rosita tackled Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee‘s hit track in a video released on Monday (August 21).

In the clip, Ernie sings about his rubber duckie with lines like, “Rubber Duckie, it is a connection/ It doesn’t have to be a tubby session, ya/ Take my day from zero to 11, ya.”

The Spanish-language chorus then follows: “Oh, el patito, es mi favorito/ Donde quiera que vaya hace su sonido/ El patito es tu buen amigo/ El patito.”

Watch the real song of the summer below!
