The Hungry Games: Catching Fur

I love the Muppets, and the Sesame Street parodies using them are often hilarious. Parodies tend to be better appreciated if you are familiar with the items being made fun of but I found this parody of the newly released The Hunger Games: Catching Fire to be enjoyable because even though I have not seen the original films, I had read enough about them to be aware of the story.

    Sesame Street manages to entertain both children and adults. I loved Sesame Street when I was a child; as an adult with a child, I found it equally entertaining with its jokes that go right over children’s heads, such as the line in the parody above about how hard it is to be a franchise heroine. 🙂 Cookie Monster also stars in a parody of “Call Me Maybe” with a song about someone with cookies, asking to share, maybe?

    Yes, humor for kids AND adults. I love watching The Simpsons with kids and laughing at all the stuff they don’t get.

    Good morning Mano,

    I have neither read the books nor seen the movies, but I am taken with the idea, expressed by Donald Sutherland, that somehow the movie will spark a revolution. Frankly, I don’t see the possibility, but I’m interested in the discussion.

    Do all you can to make today a good day,
