The countdown is on for the release of "Jurassic World," the fourth film in Steven Spielberg's dino franchise, and even the folks over at "Sesame Street" can't contain their excitement. 

The long-running children's television show has released a parody of the original "Jurassic Park" called "Jurassic Cookie." As you would expect, this one involves Cookie Monster taking on the wealthy billionaire John Hammond role and his quest to create an amusement park filled with, well, dinosaur-shaped cookies. "Me take little piece of cookie found in zillion-year-old rock, turn it into big cookies, and open super-duper theme park," Cookie Monster says in the short. 

Naturally, things do not go according to plan, and Cookie Monster and two employees are forced to run and hide from an advancing T-Rex, all the while attempting to figure out how to subdue the giant creature using a mysterious "H" word. I won't give away the ending, but let's just say that the tables are eventually turned and the entire skit become a hilarious lesson in self control. 

The "Jurassic Park" bit from the gang at "Sesame Street" follows dozens of others parodies over the years; including "24," "30 Rock," "Miami Mice" and "Desperate Houseplants." Check out the fun below:
