Sesame Street Characters Re-imagined into MonstersMany of the characters on Sesame Street are monsters and as a parent I appreciate that. There’s no better way to calm a terrified child down about the the creatures they believe to be lurking under their bed than to remind them that Elmo and Cookie Monster from Sesame Street are, well, monsters. It’s logic with which they cannot argue. Monsters are not all bad.

You know, until they are. Artist Isaac Bidwell has re-imagined some of your favorite, formerly lovable, characters into cold-blooded killers in a series he calls the “Puppet Massacre.” From an Elmo turned Freddy Krueger to Bert as Michael Myers, these drawings are fodder for your next nightmare.

Check out the whole series after the jump.
