Watch The Saturday Night Live Joker Parody, Grouch Starring David Harbour

Saturday Night Live brilliantly adapted the central theme of the Todd Phillips new film Joker with Grouch. 

Guest host David Harbour portrays a grumpy trash man who becomes more and more disenfranchised with the decaying society around him. After sinking into his own reality where he gets his revenge, he takes refuge inside the wretched trash cans that he emptied for a living.

Sesame Street will never be the same.

The HASLAB Cookie Monster will be a poseable full-body replica armature. Significant in both size and realism, this Cookie Monster stands 38-inches tall and comes complete with premium retro packaging, two original artwork lithographs and a Certificate of Authenticity.

Beginning today, fans can head to https://hasbropulse.com/products/cookie-monster to back the HASLAB Cookie Monster for $299.99. For Cookie Monster to go into production, HASLAB must meet a minimum quantity of 3,000 backers by August 25, 2019. Once the campaign is fully backed, Hasbro will deliver final products to fans in 2020.

HASLAB is Hasbro’s fan driven platform that aspires to put dream products into the hands of fans. In 2018, more than 8,800 fans successfully funded the first HASLAB campaign, Jabba’s Sail Barge.

Anchored by three of the most unforgettable and beloved friends that have helped shaped lives for the better, brought smiles to millions of children worldwide and helped raise generation after generation, where would we be if not for one wonderfully cranky Oscar the Grouch, the friendliest Big Bird who reminds us all that kindness matters in this world and, of course, the irrepressible and irresistible charm of the one and only cookie crazed Cookie Monster! A legacy quite unlike any other, “Sesame Street” and its characters are a gift to us all, a gift to humankind itself.
