Just when you thought Subway sandwiches had proven the most bizarre and atonal tie-in for 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,' in comes 'Sesame Street!' Watch Cookie Monster (excuse us, Cookieness Evereat) try to eat his way through 'The Hungry Games: Catching Fur' in a bullseye parody of the blockbuster franchise!
We've seen 'Sesame Street' take on everything from 'Sons of Anarchy' to 'Boardwalk Empire,' but the long-running PBS series' "Homeland" parody might be the most spot-on yet. 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.
We've been counting down the days until 'Sons of Anarchy' season 6 roars out its September 10 premiere, said to be chock full of controversy and violence, so about the last place we'd have expected to find FX promoting its Kurt Sutter biker drama would be 'Sesame Street.' We've seen "Upside Downton Abbey" and "Birdwalk Empire," but are you ready for "Sons of Poetry"?
Today is not a sunny day on Sesame Street. Kevin Clash, the voice actor and puppeteer behind Elmo, the show's most popular character, has taken an indefinite leave of absence following allegations the he had sexual relations with an underage boy.
'Sesame Street' star Big Bird has gone from children's television star to internet sensation over night, thanks to recent statements by Mitt Romney during the 2012 presidential debate. The guy even got to go on 'SNL' this past weekend for Seth Meyer's latest edition of Weekend Update. In short, everyone was reminded that we can't get enough of Big Bird, which is why now is the perfect time to gawk over this early concept art of him and his fellow 'Sesame Street' castmates.
There was no way SNL wasn't going to make some kind of Big Bird joke this week. No way. When Mitt Romney threatened to cut funding to PBS during the first presidential debate and name dropped Sesame Street's eight foot tall walking avian, the internet immediately exhausted every possible Big Bird joke imaginable. With all of the obvious jokes taken, SNL had to go one step further and get the bird himself to come on the show.
We remember the very first time we saw 'Boardwalk Empire,' and thought to ourselves "golly, this is pretty swell, but gosh darn it if all this sex, crime and murder wouldn't be a bit better with chicken puppets." Thankfully, we no longer need fear copyright infringement or crippling lack of funding, now that 'Sesame Street' has made its own parody of the HBO gangster drama! Nope, you're not dreaming!
It's a sunny day, and Fox is sweeping the clouds away because they're taking children's television classic 'Sesame Street' to the big screen!
