Sesame Street has been a staple of family programming for nearly fifty years and over that time has created a number of stars. While they aren’t exactly the typical celebrities that immediately jump to mind when you think of the famous, there is no doubt that Big Bird, Elmo, Cookie Monster, and the rest are known around the world. That doesn’t mean that adding a bit of star power to the show isn’t going to be an attractive idea to both the show runners and famous people looking to expand their fanbase.

It seems like a no-brainer that if you’re someone whose livelihood depends on the masses having great affection for you that Sesame Street would be a very attractive show for you to guest on. That is because the fans of the show, little boys and girls, have the tendency to watch segments from the show again and again. While it is safe to say that they will be focused primarily on their Muppet pals, it is clear that it can only be good for the famous guest star that youngsters associate their face with happy times. That is why there have been legions of famous people who’ve made guest appearances on the legendary family program over the years. That is what inspired us to put together this list of the biggest stars to have ever appeared on Sesame Street.

The rules to be up for consideration for inclusion on this list are extremely simple. The only hard and fast rule is that a celebrity needs to have made an appearance on at least one segment of Sesame Street. Once they’ve satisfied that rule there are two things we will be using as our deciding factors. How big of a star they are and whether or not they are the only celebrity in the segment, as there are some instances in which there are a bevy of famous people all at once and that feels less important.

A music star from the age most of us would be sitting at home watching Sesame Street, in our eyes, Michael Jackson is the biggest star to have ever appeared on the show. Nicknamed the “King of Pop” for a reason, he has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice, has managed to win several Guinness World Records, and has a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Grammys. The first person in the history of the world to have a top ten single in five separate decades, he has more number-one singles under his belt than any male solo star in history. In fact, if we wanted to list all of his accolades you’d be reading for hours on end because his career was that impressive, so we’ll just say that he is one of the biggest music stars of all-time. Guest appearing on a special called A Special Sesame Street Christmas, Michael was seen walking down the street reading a book about ghosts before having a conversation with Oscar the Grouch.
