It's been nearly 14 years since the last film in the Jurassic Park franchise, but this week sees the release of Jurassic World, a follow-up to the first three films.

In honor of the new dinosaur-laden film, Sesame Street, doing what it always does best, took the story from those movies and turned it into their own parody, complete with a Jurassic snack cloned from a cookie that Cookie Monster discovers trapped in amber. Of course, that gives him the idea to open a "super duper theme park."

Just like in the original Jurassic Park films, that thought turns out as a really bad idea and soon, Cookie Monster and company have a giant prehistoric cookie chasing them.

Of course, many iconic scenes from the original Jurassic Park films get included here, including the iconic scene when the dinosaur's footsteps from afar makes a puddle of water vibrate.

A lot of the scenery from the films is also created as the Jurassic cookie terrorizes Cookie Monster and his buddies through the park. "First time cookie ever tried to eat me," says Cookie Monster in the video.

Of course, this is Sesame Street, so the message is not just funny, but also educational. Eventually, Cookie Monster comes across a sign that says "In case of giant prehistoric cookie emergency, just h..." Of course, the dinosaur cookie bit off the last part of the last word, so Cookie Monster must figure out what to do to save everyone, something that starts with the letter "h."

As expected, though, Cookie Monster quickly solves the mystery of the letter "h" and saves the world from the giant prehistoric cookie, which suddenly looks really tasty towards the end of the video.

Jurassic World, starring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D'Onofrio and Irrfan Khan, opens this week, June 12.
