Sesame Street's Cookie Monster has covered Icona Pop's 'I Love It' for his next parody – watch it below.

The blue, furry biscuit-munching creature has re-angled the track as a story about his insatiable appetite for cookies, singing "Me want it/But me wait" as he parties in a nightclub, resisting the urge to eat his favourite snack.

As Rolling Stone reports, this season's Sesame Street also features a spoof version of TV series Sons Of Anarchy, which followes the lives of an outlaw motorbike crew in a fictional town in California. Re-named The Sons Of Poetry, the group are followed by poet Edgar Allan Poe's raven as they perform rhymes and meet other poets along the way, including Elizabeth Barrett Browning.

Earlier this month (August 1), Sesame Street returned to screens in the UK after a 12-year hiatus. Channel 4 dropped the iconic US kids' show from its schedules in 2001, but selected episodes from seasons 36 to 43 are now available On Demand for subscribers to Virgin Media's XL TV service.

Nick Forward, Virgin Media's director of TV, said in a press statement: "'These series were never broadcast here so this will provide hours of fun for the little ones this summer, and probably a fair few nostalgic adults too who grew up with the show.''

Sesame Street debuted in 1969 and is home to several iconic Muppets created by Jim Henson, including Big Bird, Bert and Ernie, Oscar the Grouch, Cookie Monster and Elmo. It's now notched up over 4,000 episodes, collecting 118 Emmy Awards and eight Grammy gongs along the way.
