Sesame Street Fighter is an Actual Game You Can Play - Update

Sesame Street Fighter is, naturally, educational, designed to teach spelling and typing fluency.

Update: Looks like you guys killed the server! Sesame Street Fighter is down for the time being, so until it comes back up, please enjoy the screenshots in the gallery below.

Original Story: Sesame Street Fighter is the crossover we have all been waiting for, taking six classic Sesame Street characters from your childhood and planting them over the most appropriate Street Fighter characters. Cookie monster is E. Honda, Grover is Dhalsim, Elmo is M. Bison, Oscar is Blanka, and of course, Bert and Ernie as Ryu and Ken. What's more, the game is, naturally, educational, teaching spelling and typing fluency.

You fight your opponent by quickly typing the words that come on screen, something akin to The Typing of the Dead, or perhaps, more appropriately, The Typing of the Skullgirls. Each character has a "spelling level", ranging from Cookie, with the easiest, to Elmo, with the hardest.

The game is pretty damn amazing, and is sure to hit plenty of grown-up Sesame Street and Street Fighter fans right in the nostalgia. Unfortunately, there's no multiplayer mode, so you can only play against computer-controlled bots, but here's hoping we see some updates.

But I should probably just stop talking and tell you where you can play the game. It's here. It's a free browser game. Have at it. Bert OP.

Bert and Ernie and Ryu and Ken. What's more, the game is, naturally, educational, teching spelling and typing fluency.

You fight your opponent by quickly tying the words that come on screen

Weird that an article about a game that promotes spelling and typing has typos in it. Use combos Steven, COMBOS!

When I first saw this I figured it was unofficial and would be shut down before you can say 'big bird', unless it is unofficial and the TV folks haven't found out yet. I'd like to see a crossover between this and the Street Fighter movie, watching Van Damme kicking Elmo in the face would be worth millions.

Oscar is Blanka

Outrageous! It's obvious that should've been Animal!

Ehem, yeah. Funny idea and a pretty fun game to boot.

I do think it's a pity the game doesn't cut away to Statler and Waldorf mid-fight for a good trashing of your skills. I know they're not from Sesame Street, but c'mon.

Animal is a Muppet. As far as I can tell, he's never appeared on Sesame Street.

Elmo says OF COURSE!
Can't wait for the server to come back up...

Yes, Animal is a Muppet. And so are Cookie Monster, Bert & Ernie, Elmo, Grover and the majority of all Sesame Street characters, even Big Bird. You're right though, Animal is from The Muppet Show and not Sesame Street.

Still, not changing my mind.

All male cast?

No love for Zoe, or was her qpo too "revealing" for Sesame Street?

imageDo'h. Why u no use more mirrors?

That's from the next game: Muppets VS Sesame Street Fighter.

I think Big Bird should be Guile.

I'm going to play it entirely to help me memorize cities in Russia. THANK YOU GUYS!

I am currently playing it and can confirm that it is highly addictive, bloody annoying to successfully spell some Russian city while elmo is trying to eat your face and it is a useful procrastination tool.

Also, now i need to unlock Elmo, guessing gotta beat the game with all characters. What a shame....

I was thinking Zangief personally.

I'm sorry, but Elmo is not a character from my childhood.

*wheels bathchair offstage*

Sigh. Cannot beat it with Cookie. That is supposedly the easiest, but his damage is gimped as hell. Can beat with all others.... just not cookie.

Yeah, I can't start typing the next word fast enough to not get stunlocked by the others' combo. Was a piece of cake with bert, ernie, and oscar, but I can't beat it with grover or cookie. Could only get to bert with grover.

Fun stuff though.

Glad i'm not the only one, but yes, it was fun and killed a few minutes of my day lol

Oh wow.

This sounds like something I'd so want to play.

Too bad that, as of reading this, the servers are dead. :/

This is an awesome idea...... So wish the servers were up.
