sesame street orange is the new black parody

I know what I go to Sesame Street for: spot-on parodies of popular adult-oriented shows that are indictments of the criminal justice system. If that’s not what you watch Sesame Street for, well, you’re missing out.

The educational children’s show released a parody of Orange Is the New Black titled “Orange Is the New Snack,” turning Netflix’s dark comedy about inmates at an all-female institution into a PSA about healthy eating. Because orange is a color…and a fruit! Get it? It’s kind of ingenious, really.

Billy on the Sesame Street

Billy Eichner is best known for screaming questions at people in public on his web series turned full fledged TV show Billy on the Street. It’s loud and hilarious, but it’s not necessarily appropriate for kids. But you can certainly let them watch this family friendly version of Billy on the Street that takes the comedian to the most famous street in the world: Sesame Street.

It goes without saying that Billy Eichner asks how to get to Sesame Street, but the real goal of this fun video is to find a little kindness and compassion. Oh, and everyone gets a cookie, which kind of drives Cookie Monster a little crazy. Watch Billy on the Sesame Street after the jump. Read More »

Sesame Street Characters Reading Movie Quotes

Every kid grows out of Sesame Street at some point, but you never really stop loving the Muppets who helped teach you how to count, spell and do the right thing. That’s why every now and then, the characters from the Children’s Television Workshop are rounded up for content that’s mostly geared towards adults, but can be enjoyed by kids as well. Today, we have one of those videos.

Sesame Street is no stranger to making references to relevant, timely pop culture phenomena. We’ve seen Cookie Monster involved in an Avengers: Age of Ultron parody, and they’ve even spoofed television with some Game of Thrones mockery. This time, characters like Big Bird, Cookie Monster, Bert & Ernie, The Count, Grover, Oscar the Grouch and more have some fun by reciting some of the most famous movie quotes from history with adorable results.

Bert, Ernie, Elmo, Big Bird, Oscar The Grouch, The Count, Cookie Monster, Grover, Rosita and Abby Cadabby were all rounded up to answer questions like how they get celebrities to be on the show, what species Big Bird is and just how one gets to Sesame Street.

AT&T Everywhere Commercial

Not many people pay attention to commercials on TV anymore, mostly because we’re either streaming content with limited to no commercials, or we’re just watching stuff on our DVR that just allows us to fast forward through them. But while watching the Golden Globes live this past weekend, a recent ad from AT&T caught my eyes (actually, my ears first) because it mashed up a ton of movies and TV shows.

In a new AT&T advertisement promoting the ability to watch a plethora of movies and TV shows on demand from your phone, you’ll find references to Back to the Future, Ghostbusters, Game of Thrones, Knight Rider, Cheers, Rocky, Breaking Bad, Sex and the City, Seinfeld, Sesame Street and more.

Vinyl trailer

As a premium cable channel, HBO can show pretty much whatever the hell they want, and when it comes to their prestige dramas they rarely pass up an opportunity to do just that. Colorful curses? Great. Graphic, gory violence? Fantastic. Nudity? Yes please, and preferably while some esteemed British character actor is delivering a boring exposition dump.

But that’s not all HBO does. The network shows a very wide variety of programming, thank you very much. Why, just this winter, they’re premiering both Vinyl, which comes with all the usual trapping of an HBO prestige drama, and Sesame Street, which has none of them. And let’s not forget the new season of Togetherness, which earned tons of great buzz when it debuted last year. Watch trailers for all three shows — VinylSesame Street, and Togetherness — after the jump.

sesame street hbo trailer

A few months ago, it was announced that Sesame Street would be leaving PBS after 45 years and taking up new residence at HBO. Today, the first trailer for the iconic children show’s 46th season has arrived and despite the new network, there aren’t any executions or sequences of full-frontal nudity to be found. At least not on first glance. And we’re talking about humans, because Big Bird and Elmo are, technically, always completely naked.

But let’s move on before we fall down that horrifying rabbit hole. Watch the new Sesame Street HBO trailer after the jump.
