The other day, I found a Sesame Street spoof of Mad Men, and it made my day. Fascinated by the concept, I kept digging and digging and unearthed several more Sesame Street spoofs, many of which came via Alistair Cookie, host of Monsterpiece Theater. Pardon my lack of originality here- none of this is my content, nor am I going to say anything special about any of it. I guess I’m just shocked that Sesame Street has spoofed all of these Hollywood movies and TV shows and felt the need to share.
Best line: “Good work, sycophants”. I can’t wait to hear my 3 year old nephew drop “sycophants” on me.
Twelve Angry Men
1 Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest
I’m going to pretend that it was directed by Elmos Forman.
That’s right. Sesame Street spoofed David Lynch.
The 400 Blows
When I saw the link to the video for The 400 Blows, I thought for certain that it was going to be a mashup, and not something that had originally been on Sesame Street. But it is indeed the real deal- Sesame Street doing a Truffaut impersonation.
Dances with Wolves
They even made it shadowy and noir and black and white. How awesome is that?
Gone with the Wind
The theme music and opening doesn’t get any less creepy with muppets in it. On the plus side, this muppet is a better actor than the guy who plays Bill Compton.
