Gene Siskel, Telly Monster, Oscar the Grouch and Roger Ebert.

Roger Ebert (b. 1942) is a film critic who writes for the Chicago Sun-Times. He is most well-known as the co-host of several incarnations of movie review television programs, such as At the Movies.

He appeared on Sesame Street with Gene Siskel in a Sneak Peek Previews segment, spoofing their own series. The critics instruct Oscar and Telly on how their thumbs up/thumbs down rating system works. When Telly asks if there could be a thumbs sideways rating, Oscar goads the two men into an argument about whether or not that would be acceptable. The pair were also seen in the celebrity version of "Monster in the Mirror."

Years later, Ebert appeared to give a short review of a skit with Grover and the letter I spoofing the musical The King and I. This clip can be seen on the DVD A Celebration of Me, Grover. Ebert refers to Grover's role as the King of Siam.
