'Sesame Street'/'The Muppets' (2009/2011)
Despite being someone who consistently embodies jerks, Gervais made an appearance on Sesame Street and embraced his warm, faux-furry side...up to a point. "Do you know what necrophilia is?" Gervais asks Elmo in the show's outtakes, before warning the little red puppet that certain topics are off-limits: drugs, child abuse, the Holocaust. The fact that Gervais shares an identical laugh with the Sesame star is just icing on the cake. Gervais will also guest star in the new Muppet movie, where hopefully they can keep some of his dirty riffing on camera.
