"Los Monstruos También Lloran" ("The Monsters Also Cry") is a recurring segment on Plaza Sésamo which debuted in the 2005 season.

Spoofing telenovelas, each segment pairs Abelardo, Lola, Pancho Contreras, or Multimonstruo with a celebrity, usually a telenovela star. The characters become emotional over minor situations, which are always solved by the episode's end.

Several of the segments were collected on the DVD, Los monstruos feos más bellos.
