The Muppet-filled Not Too Late Show with Elmo came to HBO Max on Wednesday, but you can get a taste on YouTube before you sign up.

Along with Cookie Monster, Bert and Ernie and a bunch of other Sesame Street legends, the 15-minute episode brings on the Jonas Brothers. Hard-hitting host Elmo challenges the pop band to make goofy faces before they sing about cleaning your teeth in Brushy Brush.

It's actually the show's second episode, with three available on the $14.99-a-month streaming service on launch day. Elmo's fellow late-night host Jimmy Fallon and singer Kacey Musgraves show up in the first one, while comedian John Mulaney and rapper Lil Nas X appear in the third.

HBO Max hosts a bunch of original content from AT&T's WarnerMedia. For the May 27 launch, other shows for a younger audience include YouTuber-hosted craft series Craftopia and new Looney Tunes cartoons.
