20 Funny Elmo Memes That Will Have You Chuckling
Elmo is a fan favorite from the long-running children’s television show Sesame Street. The red monster is a three-and-a-half-year-old who refers to himself in the third person. Originally only meant to be a supporting character, he became a much-beloved member of the gang and quickly became a hit with viewers. His popularity has transcended the show, with Elmo popping up on talk shows, appearing on other television shows, and of course, being the star of Elmo memes.
Why Elmo is so loved is a good question. He’s a curious character who often gets himself into trouble trying new things but is rarely frustrated or angry. He’s a good role model for kids to keep being themselves and not be afraid to try and fail. Even science has a few theories why Elmo is popular, dealing with his color and the way he speaks.
While kids love the cuddly version of Elmo, it’s the Elmo memes that make adults love him. These memes have been going on for over a decade, with many focusing on his character and feud with friend Zoe’s pet rock.
If you’re an Elmo fan or just want a good laugh, then read on and enjoy these fantastic and funny Elmo memes.
20 Funny Elmo Memes That Will Have You Chuckling
1. Elmo Rise
This is one of the original Elmo memes that did the rounds way back in 2012. It depicts a crudely-made Elmo on top of a birthday cake with his arms raised high in the air. This eventually turned into an image of Elmo surrounded by fire as if trapped in hell. This popular meme was even turned into a viral video. There have been many variations of this over years, but it’s hard to go past the first version of this meme featuring Elmo in the fires of hell.
2. Feud: Elmo and Rocco
Another fantastic set of Elmo memes that went viral earlier this year is the Elmo vs Rocco memes. People uncovered old episodes of Sesame Street where Elmo gets into stoushes with Rocco, his best friend Zoe’s pet rock. The two argue over the pronunciation of words and cookies in a range of short clips.
Of course, the internet couldn’t leave this alone, and a mass of memes spread across the interwebs. This one imagines their feud as a new TV series created by Ryan Murphy and starring Evan Peters as Elmo, Sarah Paulson as Zoe, and Jessica Lange as Rocc. This is a very funny meme that Elmo fans will love.
