Jimmy Fallon and the Muppets Twitter-reminisce about childhood

Jimmy Fallon sometimes reads tweets on air, sent in by viewers who use whatever hashtag he broadcasts. On Thursday night's Tonight Show, the hashtag was #WhenIWasAKid, and since nothing says "I was a kid" like the Muppets — the Sesame Street ones (everyone knows The Muppet Show was for adults) — Fallon invited Elmo, Grover, Abby Cadabby, Big Bird, and other anthropomorphic animal-puppets on to read the tweets for him. Oscar the Grouch steals the show, because Oscar always steals the show. But the best question was from @SloopJohnBeav_. Sadly, Big Bird doesn't answer it. --Peter Weber
