It's hard not to like Tickle-Me-Elmo. At least for the first minute or so... then you want to Strangle-Me-Elmo.

But a Tickle-Me-Elmo without his "fur?" Well, it's just downright TERRIFYING!

The folks at Science Mobile at the Canada Science Museum & Technology Museum in Ottawa, Ontario (Hey....I've actually been there!) shared a video of what it looks like when cute 'lil Elmo is deprived of his red, furry coat.

What's next? Snuffleuffagus without his trunk? Oscar The Grouch without his trashcan? A bald Bert or Ernie? Oh, the HORROR!

Good luck getting to sleep tonight.
