C. Sweep is a Cockney chimney sweep who appears in a Season 20 edition of Sesame Street News Flash.

Reporter Kermit the Frog hides out in a house on Christmas Eve, hoping to get an exclusive interview with Santa Claus. When he sees boots dangling from the chimney and a familiar "Ho, ho, ho," he assumes Santa is arriving. Instead, it is C. Sweep, who has been hired to clean a large clog in the chimney. He bats the inside of the chimney with his brush and dislodges the clog - Santa Claus! Upon realizing who it is, C. Sweep hops on Santa's lap and begins telling him what he wants for Christmas.
