Sea is for Cookie: Sesame Street in Orlando, Florida
Sea is for Cookie, that's good enough for me. Cookie, cookie, cookie starts with Sea!
In honor of the new Sesame Street opening at SeaWorld in Orlando, Florida, I decided to do a drawing in the spirit of Sesame Street parodies. This one is based on Walt Disney World's Pandora: The World of Avatar attractions, AVATAR: Flight of Passage and Na'vi River Journey. Grover and Big Bird and Little Bird star in Sesame Street: Height of Knowledge. Cookie Monster and the Yip Yip Martians take visitors on a journey down a river of cookies and milk on Cookie Eater Thirsty. Dizzy Mixer's Mewantcookie is inspired by Disney Pixar's Ratatouille.
It's pretty clear to me that Remy from Ratatouille takes some inspiration from Sesame Street's Grover. The colors are very similar, as is the mouth.
Oscar the Grouch and Snuffy take on Universal Studios Grinchmas.
Oscar makes the perfect Grinch, and Snuffy is well cast as Max the dog.
Bert and Ernie take on E.T. with Er.Nie.
The E.T. Adventure is one of the last surviving elements of the original Universal Studios Florida. Ironically, a Sesame Street dark ride exists in Universal Studios Singapore, replacing a planned version of the E.T. Adventure.
The opening of the new Sesame Street at SeaWorld has many on social media questioning its very existence, or shocked at the partnership. But SeaWorld and Sesame go way back, starting with the opening of the very first Sesame Place park in Pennsylvania in 1980. Sesame Place was operated by Busch Entertainment, the same company that operated Busch Gardens parks in Florida and Virginia. Later, Busch bought SeaWorld parks. Sesame Place has been featured on SeaWorld/Busch Gardens materials for many years. Sesame Street characters eventually found their way into Busch Gardens and SeaWorld parks across America. Orlando was the last to get a dedicated area for the characters. The addition is quite possibly the smartest attraction ever created for SeaWorld. I get the feeling that Shamu Stadium in Florida is ground zero for an eventual Sesame expansion.
