Kids at the WVU Children's Hospital got a surprise visit Thursday from Elmo and Cookie Monster.

The Sesame Street characters are in Morgantown for Sesame Street Live this weekend and stopped by the hospital to say hello.

The characters played with the kids, and visited.

Twenty one month old Luke Knotts even colored with his favorite Elmo.

His mom and hospital agree the visit is a great thing.

"He was pretty excited. He watches them on TV, but to see them in real life is something different for them," said Christine Knotts, mother of Luke Knotts.

"It helps to break up the kid's day," said Rob Riley, nurse manager in the Pediatric Ward. "We try to keep the things as normal as possible for the kids, and Big Bird and Elmo, those kinds of characters are things kids have at home so to see them here may help them take their mind off, maybe the shot they are going to get."

Sesame Street Live is at the Creative Arts Center Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
