WATCH: ‘Seinfeld’ Star Julia Louis-Dreyfus Curses at Elmo in Resurfaced ‘Sesame Street’ Clip

by Megan Molseed

It looks like Elmo has a solid plan for a regular income these days. At least it’s a solid income when certain Sesame Street guest stars, such as Seinfeld alum, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, fail to watch their language in between takes on the popular children’s TV series.

Fans are getting a kick out of a hilarious re-surfaced clip where Seinfeld star Julia Louis-Dreyfus is so focused on getting her part right during a Sesame Street guest appearance that she forgets there are little monster ears all around. And, Elmo isn’t about to let a language faux-pas go, either.

In a recently resurfaced video, Seinfeld star Julia Louis-Dreyfus lets the expletives fly…well one expletive, really. However, Elmo’s little monster ears apparently don’t miss a thing. The adorable red muppet promptly requests $5 from the actress for the swear jar after a hilarious PG-13 slip-up.

However, Julia Louis-Dreyfus isn’t fazed by this exchange. In fact, she’s very honest about her flaws, telling her Sesame Street buddy that he is “going to be a rich Muppet at the end of this day.” Take a look at the hilarious moment below:

Social media has been having a field day with the recently re-surfaced 1994 Sesame Street outtake clip showing the moment Louis-Dreyfus dropped an S-bomb in front of famous muppets, Elmo and Zoe. Sure, the clip may be nearly 30 years old at this point. However, that hasn’t stopped the hilarious moment from going viral now and getting some fresh views. With fans making some fresh comments about the actress’s hilarious blunder.

We’re Pretty Sure That These Aren’t Our Regular Sesame Street Outtakes!

This hilarious seconds-long blooper begins as the Seinfeld actress is recording a scene with Elmo and Zoe. However, the moment goes awry when Louis-Dreyfus says the wrong name during the recording. Catching her gaff, the actress pauses and then audibly utters the word “s–t” before preparing to restart the scene.

The TV star quickly tries to recover, apologizing for her slip-up. But Elmo isn’t about to let this slip-up go. The muppet stays in character, shocked by the actress’s use of the “bad word.”

Soon, however, Elmo knows exactly what to do as he promptly tells his famous scene partner that she now needs to put $5 in the swear jar.

“You said a bad word,” Elmo says, acting shocked. “Five Dollars,” the muppet adds. And, Julia doesn’t seem bothered by this request; noting while she gets set for another take that her furry costar will be “a rich Muppet at the end of this day.”
