I can’t believe it took almost twenty years, but someone finally did it. Back in the fighting game craze of the early 90’s, I had a pitch that was sure to wow the paints off of developers the world over.

Unfortunately, some scribblings submitted to EGM, (along with my breakfast brawler concept: Cereal Killer!) were as far as I got. So, thank the stars and heavens for deviantartist gavacho13! He brought my vision out of a two decade hibernation with his beautiful mash-up between The Children’s Television Workshop and Capcom’s World Warriors. (NERD TRIVIA: Which two characters are not actually Sesame Street cast members?)
