Blake Griffin, Matt Kemp To Appear On Sesame Street

Blake Griffin and Matt Kemp weren't part of your childhood, but that is about to change.

According to, word out of the Sesame Street studios is that both the Los Angeles Clippers forward and the Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder will appear on the popular children's television show this season, which premieres on Monday.

In the show's 43rd season, the duo will join famous faces like Charlize Theron, Halle Berry, Don Cheadle, Casey Affleck, Melissa McCarthy, Steve Carell, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Timothy Olyphant, Jon Hamm, Eric Stonestreet, Zac Efron, Colbie Caillat and the band Train.

One notable change this season will be "Elmo The Musical" replacing the popular skit "Elmo's World," which is gone after 13 years on air. So that's a bummer. At least two of your favorite Los Angeles athletes will be making up for the loss.

But you've got to be curious how Griffin and Kemp will look in the wild world of puppetry. At the very least, we know Blake will have the advantage in a game of Jenga. Puppets can't be good at that, right?
