We Can All Quit: Sesame Street Did A Spoof Called Upside Downton Abbey [VIDEO]

Ask a Muppet

Will Sesame Street ever stop being awesome? We think not. Especially because you know their target audience won’t exactly get this or appreciate Muppet Carson nearly as much as we do. I can hear the staff meeting now: “Should we do a Downton Abbey spoof? They are on the same network as us, after all.” “I don’t know, it might go over kids’ heads.” “Screw it, this is gonna be great.” At least we all learned an important lesson about gravity.
