23 Questions “Sesame Street” Has Left Unanswered
1. What does Oscar do on trash day?
If he oversleeps, does he sometimes wake up in the dump?
2. Does Big Bird have a weight problem?
3. Does Cookie Monster have an eating disorder?
4. If “C is for cookie,” why is that good enough for him?
Is this because Cookie Monster has renounced all his worldly possessions and all he needs is one letter? Is C an enigma that requires too much effort to comprehend? Or perhaps Cookie Monster just has low standards? CAN’T HANDLE THE MYSTERY.

6. How do Bert and Ernie pay the rent? Where does the money come from?
9. Do Sesame Street residents actually like Grover? Or are his eccentricities merely tolerated?
11. How does Kermit split his time between Sesame Street and The Muppet Show? Is the commute between the two very long?
12. Do the muppets of Sesame Street ever cut their hair or groom their fur? Does that stuff grow?
13. Although Maria ends up marrying Luis, she’s in a relationship with David beforehand. What went wrong between them?

15. How come Grover had to work when none of the other Sesame Street muppets did? Did Grover have money problems?
16. How come no one calls Mr. Snuffleupagus by his first name?
His first name is actually Aloysius, so is it a respect thing? Otherwise, it’s a bit funny considering “Snuffleupagus” is also his species. Kind of like calling him Mr. Human.
