Can't wait until Sunday for The Walking Dead Season 8 premiere? Here's the next best thing thanks to viewers like you.

The good neighbors on Sesame Street reimagine a world similar to Walking Dead but instead of zombies, they are up against crumbies. Cookie Monster is decked out as Rick Grimes, while his cookies are being eaten by cannibal gingerbread men. Thankfully, the muppet versions of Daryl and Michonne arrive to save Cookie Monster from the crumbies. The only way they're safe from the mindless gingerbread zombies is if Cookie Monster doesn't eat cookies.

But that's impossible because he's the Cookie Monster.

The parody does a fine job recreating the Walking Dead characters, the eerie score, and iconic sets while keeping it on Sesame Street and away from Pee Pee Pants City.

This isn't the first time Sesame Street has taken something we all know and love and reimagined it for all ages. You have to watch Orange Is The New Snack and Star S'Mores if you enjoyed this.

The PBS and HBO kids' nonprofit show is about to enter its 48th season on November 18.  AMC airs the 100th episode of The Walking Dead tomorrow night.
