I watched a lot of Sesame Street with my children when they were young. I particularly loved their parodies because they work on two levels, teaching simple lessons to young children while at the same time entertaining their adult companions by riffing off adult films and TV shows and music. Now that my children are grown I no longer watch the show but once in a while come across a new good parody.
Here they do their magic on the hit TV show Downton Abbey.
You can see more Sesame Street parodies here. Particularly good are their parodies of Bruce Springsteen’s song Born to Run and the TV show Glee.
