Sesame Street is coming to Comic Con International: San Diego with a presentation celebrating 45 years of parodies on "The Street."
Moderated by Talking Dead's Chris Hardwick, the panel will feature celebrity guests and performances of all-new material, including a Star Wars parody and one of convention life itself.
Graphic novelist Michael Lapinski, whose Feeding Ground is currently in development as a motion picture, was one of the digital artists involved with producing the "Star S'Mores" material. He has been working with Sesame Workshop in Nashville, most notably on last year's launch of Elmo the Musical.
The panel will take place on Sunday morning.
