Bert and Ernie in "Sesame Street"

Twentieth Century Fox has acquired the rights to PBS' beloved educational children's show "Sesame Street," now in its 43rd year. Longtime "Sesame Street" writer Joey Mazzarino is set to pen a script bringing the show's characters to the big screen. Everyone's favorite puppet and live-action NYC cityblock has had quite the roster of celebrity appearances over the years -- it will be interesting to see which Hollywood stars are lured by the likes of Elmo. Brad Pitt appeasing Oscar the Grouch, perhaps?

"Sesame Street" has had two previous film adaptations. "Follow that Bird" (1985), which starred John Candy, Chevy Chase and Dave Thomas in addition to the usual gang, plus 1999's "The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland."
