The furry red monster Elmo, seen here being serenaded by Ricky Gervais in a scene from the 40th season of "Sesame Street," is the subject of the documentary "Being Elmo: A Puppeteer's Journey," in the U.S. Documentary competition at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival.

Here’s what’s being talked about today in pop culture:

• “Sesame Street” is saying good-bye to “Elmo’s World,” a staple of the children’s show for 13 years. Instead, the furry red monster will star in a new feature, “Elmo the Musical,” that will help teach kids about music and art appreciation. []

• Do you remember the 1983 videogame “Spy Hunter”? There’s going to be a movie version, directed by Ruben Fleischer (“Zombieland”). [Vulture]

• The Cricket is a Seattle Seahawks fan, and even he thinks the ending to last night’s Packers-Seahawks game was messed up. [The Huffington Post]
