Some things are inherently awesome. Like dancing. And penguins. And Melissa McCarthy.

So when the three things are combined, it's kind of like awesomeness overload -- but it happened, and it happened (of course) on Sesame Street.

McCarthy recently was a guest on the show to introduce children to the word "choreographer," and to illustrate the concept, Elmo brought out a penguin who makes up dance moves. McCarthy is elated by the idea -- "you mean to tell me that you can get someone here who makes up dance moves?" -- and dancing, naturally, ensues.

Here's the whole clip, and special kudos to McCarthy for being such a good sport. (Although how anyone could not be a good sport on Sesame Street is beyond us.)
