"Les Mousserables"

Jean Bon-Bon gets taught a lesson through "Sesame Street"-friendly versions of the musical's classics.

Sesame Street has put its own spin on Les Miserables.

Les Mousserables tells the story of Jean Bon-Bon, "a French guy who was very sad because he had no cookies," whose luck suddenly starts to change when he comes across a healthy stash of cookies. "Cowabunga!" But a chance meeting with Flantine changes everything -- though it takes Jean Bon-Bon a rather long time to figure out exactly what Flantine's story is.

The Les Mis classics, such as "One Day More," "I Dreamed a Dream" and "On My Own," get the Sesame Street treatment with tweaked lyrics, but the ideas still remain the same. It all culminates in a grand finale, where Flantine and company teach Jean Bon-Bon a lesson about sharing.

"One day s'more!"
