Have you seen these Sesame Street TV spoofs?

As Sesame Street delivers its True Blood parody, we revisit its TV spoofs from Sons Of Anarchy to Mad Men and more...

It's an odd combination: pre-school puppet show meets some of TV's most adult, violent, sex-charged drama, but it's showing no signs of going away. In addition to Sesame Street's clutch of film parodies (if you've not seen it, we can recommend Hunger Games: Catching Fire), the PBS children's show has been spoofing TV's best and brightest for years. 

As its latest TV parody - an educational felt version of HBO's True Blood dedicated, as so many of these spoofs are, to the art of rhyming - arrives, let's revisit some of Sesame Street's previous homages, from Birdwalk Empire, to Homelamb, Sons Of Poetry, 30 Rocks and more...

Homelamb is brilliant. Thanks!

I distinctly remember 'Twin Beaks' back when I was young enough to be watching this.

I remember The Count doing....

ONE! Flew over the cuckoo's nest... Ah ah ah aaaaaaah
TWO! Flew over the cuckoo's nest.... Ah ah ah aaaaaaaah

It was hilarious! :)
