The azure arbiter of all things appetizing (so long as they're cookies) is bringing the Sesame Street spirit down to Westworld for a teachable moment in a kid-friendly crossover featuring characters from HBO's dystopian drama.

Cersei and Tyrion Lannister were arguing in King's Landing, the capitol of the fictional land of Westeros when Elmo intervenes.

Freeze all motor function!

"And I only want for you to not get what you want", Headey's Cersei says. "I'm willing to learn and listen if you are".

"Elmo thinks that you two need to respect each other", Elmo said. That's how the Game of Thrones ends. "When Elmo has a problem with his friends like Abby or Cookie Monster, Elmo doesn't get upset!"


"If we stop fighting and work together, we can be stronger".

When Tyrion and the Red Monster offer the usually combative Cersei a chance to listen to her enemies, and try to understand them, she says she'll give it a "try" - then she joyfully peer pressure's Ser Elmo into drinking a glass of her finest wine. Finally, she dryly replies, "I can try".

In another, a beloved blue monster pays a visit to Westworldon a mission of "cookie diplomacy".

Jeffrey D Dunn, president and CEO of Sesame Workshop explained that respect is a value needed back when the show was created in 1969 until now. Look how happy they all look - Muppets will do that to even a blood-thirsty, brother-loving queen.
