At some point, we’re not sure when, Sesame Street stopped being a low-key educational children’s program and started being an educational children’s program that finds time to create internet-friendly parodies of whatever pop culture event is huge in a given week. So yeah, of course the show has made an Avengers-themed sketch and of course it’s called The Aveggies: Age of Bon Bon and of course it recasts Cookie Monster as the Hulk.

At some point in the SNL writer’s room, everyone must have realized that guest host Taraji P. Henson plays a monstrous character named Cookie on the smash hit Empire and, a few Cookie Monster jokes later, they were scrambling to call the producers of Sesame Street. Yes, SNL put Henson’s Cookie on the world’s most famous children’s program and the results are kind of spectacular.

Because there is nothing small children still learning to read love more than ultra-violent fantasy epics, Sesame Street has created a Game of Thrones parody. And we’re not talking about a simple excuse to dress up some Muppets in medieval garb. There are some serious George R.R. Martin deep cuts in this strange little sketch, which marks the first and probably last time that Sesame Street will obliquely reference brutal massacres, beheadings, and regicide.

Whatever your feelings on Birdman, we can all agree that Sesame Street’s spoof of the Oscar contender is absolutely perfect (and absolutely adorable). The long-running children’s program has made a delightful habit of spoofing some of our pop culture favorites, and their latest effort doesn’t disappoint. And it’s perfectly timed for this Sunday’s Academy Awards ceremony.

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'? Okay, it isn't exactly the great detective, but Benedict Cumberbatch himself making deductions with 'Sesame Street' muppets is the next best thing!

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"?
