A few months back, Sesame Street gave a surprisingly adult announcement in news that it would leave its longtime home at PBS for HBO, but that isn’t the only big change afoot. Not only will Big Bird and co. only run for half an hour per episode in their new January premiere, we’ll also see new characters, theme songs, segments and more.

However ubiquitous and beloved Sesame Street has become over the years, there’s little secrecy surrounding the fact that PBS only provides so much of its funding, slowly shrinking Sesame Workshop’s production.

We've seen 'Sesame Street' take on the likes of such TV-MA fare as 'Sons of Anarchy,' 'Boardwalk Empire' and 'Homeland,' but can it master deductions when it comes to 'Sherlock'?

Bringing Carrie, Brody, Saul and the rest to life as "Homelamb," you might be surprised by the adult humor 'Sesame Street' manages to cram into its latest parody.
